Betrayal: Jane looked on as Kieran and Katie shared a kiss
Pregnant Miss Price learned her husband of just a year, Kieran Hayler, was ‘cheating on her with her best friend of 20 years’ – and immediately took to Twitter to tell her 1.85million followers the unhappy news. She is pictured leaving the house of her best friend escorted by her husband

It was also reported on Friday that Miss Price feared her husband was having ‘a second affair’ – this time with the cousin of Prince Harry’s ex girlfriend Cressida Bonas, April Bonas, 24, The Sun alleged.
It’s been over 48 hours since Kieran and Jane were outed by his own wife on Twitter for having a sexual affair, when she revealed the news to her 1.9million followers on Wednesday.
But Kieran, who has a young son with Katie – as well as another baby on the way with the model – was spotted on Thursday morning for the first time since the showdown driving a Land Rover Defender with the window rolled down.

Pregnant Katie announced the end of her third marriage on Twitter as she angrily accused her husband of having an affair with her best friend.
The former glamour model, better known as Jordan, told her followers that part-time stripper Kieran had been having a ‘full blown sexual affair’ with Jane.
But the husband of Mrs Pountney has denied his wife had a seven month affair with the star’s spouse after leaving a ‘tearful’ crisis meeting on Wednesday afternoon with the feuding friends and Mr Hayler.

Businessman Derrick Pountney, 51, who has a daughter and son with Jane, said: ‘We are good friends of Katie and Kieran’s and have been good friends of Katie for a good 20 years.
‘A lot of this drama has been a storm in a teacup and there’s a lot of misunderstandings to sort out.
‘There has not been a “full blown” affair going on, it was more like a drunken kiss.’
Mr Pountney added: ‘Jane and Katie have had a good old chat here this afternoon.
‘Will she and Kieran break up, or could they get back together? I don’t really know.
‘As for Jane and I working things out… again, I don’t know.
‘This “affair” has not really happened like it has been portrayed. I’ve known about it for about four weeks myself. All four of us are good friends, but things between Kieran and Jane just went a bit far.

‘Now Katie has gone and put the whole thing for everyone to read about on Twitter, which she didn’t really need to do, and a drunk kiss has turned into a full on affair.
‘That’s not the case. I knew about what had happened before today, it’s not new to me.
‘There were tears shed here today, all sorts went on. But Katie and Jane talked, they have been friends a long time and they are OK now.

Miss Price and Mr Hayler arrived at the home Mrs Pountney shares with her husband in Sussex for a showdown. Mr Hayler walked separately to his wife with his head down and his hands in his pockets – he was let in to the large home by Mrs Pountney’s husband Derrick
‘I was at Katie’s house earlier today and brought Kieran round here. I see myself as the peacemaker of the group.
‘Everyone is just about on speaking terms now. I hope they can work it out.’
A source close to Miss Price told The Sun on Thursday that the glamour model had suspected ‘for weeks’ that something was ‘going on’.
The male stripper also reportedly criticised his wife for ‘not making an effort’ and complained that she was ‘rude and coarse to him’, the friend claimed.
Price said she had ‘caught them’ and branded Mrs Pountney a ‘wh*re’, ‘sl*t’ and ‘home-wrecker’, while describing Hayler as a ‘disgusting human being’.

‘CARRY ON CLUTCHING YOUR FAME LIKE A TRAMP DOES A BAG OF CHIPS': FAME HUNGRY NHS BOOB JOB ‘MODEL’ BAITS KATIE PRICE OVER SPLIT AND THEN APOLOGISES FOR ‘INTENTIONALLY RUBBING SALT IN THE WOUNDS’
Shocking: Josie Cunningham, 23, has sensationally claimed that she will abort her pregnancy to be in with a chance of appearing on Big Brother
Fame hungry wannabe model Josie Cunningham couldn’t resist wading in to Katie Price’s latest relationship drama, by baiting the glamour model on Twitter.
Miss Cunningham hit headlines after she had a breast enlargement paid for by the NHS, fell pregnant after becoming an escort and then told journalists she would abort her unborn child to earn a place on Big Brother.
She tweeted earlier today: ‘Wow! Jane Pountney you lucky girl!! Ever fancy a third in the bed you know where to find me! Kieran is HOT! #KatiePrice #Divorce.’
She then added: ‘**Smug Face** Looking at @misskatieprice twitter. Carry on clutching to your fame like a tramp does a bag of chips love! Xxxxx.’
She later deleted the more offensive tweets, seemingly after the intervention of her ‘manager’.
Miss Cunningham was widely condemned for her remarks earlier this year when she announced: ‘An abortion will further my career,’ Josie, who was 19-weeks pregnant, claimed. ‘This time next year I won’t have a baby.
‘Instead I’ll be famous, driving around in a bright pink Range Rover [the same as Katie Price]. Nothing will get in my way.’
Miss Price – who said she would divorce her third husband Kieran Hayler after she discovered he was having a ‘seven month affair’ with her best friend Jane Pountney – has previously branded Miss Cunningham ‘absolutely disgusting’.
On her 22nd birthday last June, Cunningham’s GP referred her to a consultant at Leeds General Infirmary.
She said she had no idea that the £4,800 operation she underwent would cause outrage, but jumped at the chance to take part in a topless shoot for a red-top newspaper, describing it as a ‘real honour’.
She has since employed an agent who works with a handful of reality TV stars, Rob Cooper, to advise her on how to make money from appearing in downmarket celebrity and lads’ magazines.
Cunningham then went further, posing half-naked, her breast covered in sashes printed with the NHS logo, taunting her critics.
Pouring more fuel on the fire, she then claimed she wanted her implants removed: ‘I was rushed into the decision to have them taken up to a 36DD and I don’t feel very confident about them now. I want people to take me seriously and stop branding me “the girl with the big NHS boobs”.’
In January of this year it was revealed that she had been working as an escort, claiming that she needed to date clients in order to save up for a breast reduction.
She later deleted the more offensive tweets, seemingly after the intervention of her ‘manager’, but still tweeted her glee at the couple’s split
Miss Price – who said she would divorce her third husband Kieran Hayler after she discovered he was having a ‘seven month affair’ with her best friend Jane Pountney – has previously branded Miss Cunningham ‘absolutely disgusting’
When she first discovered she was pregnant three months ago took part in yet more interviews and photoshoots – despite admitting that one of her clients could be the father of the baby.
In March she took to Twitter to say: ‘Happy Mothers’ Day to all you mums out there! There’s no better feeling than being a parent.’
In April, she shockingly announced that she will abort her latest pregnancy in the hope of securing a place on the next series of the reality TV show Big Brother.
‘I’m finally on the verge of becoming famous and I’m not going to ruin it now,’ said Cunningham, whose 18-week pregnancy is already clearly visible.
‘Channel 5 were keen to shortlist me, then they found out I was pregnant,’ she said. ‘They went cold on me. That was when I started considering an abortion.
Mrs Pountney, 49, has been one of Miss Price’s closest friends for almost two decades and was a bridesmaid when the 35-year-old married Hayler, 27, little more than a year ago. She was pictured with the couple and her own husband Derrick, 52, after the lavish ceremony in the Bahamas.
But it seems that friendship is over, with Miss Price writing on Twitter: ‘Sorry to say me and Kieran are divorcing. Him and my best friend Jane Pountney been having a full blown sexual affair for seven months.’
Miss Price, who is six months pregnant, has an eight-month-old son, Jett, with Hayler. The couple got engaged within weeks of meeting and married in January last year.
In an interview shortly after they wed, Miss Price declared that the former builder would receive ‘f*** all’ of her estimated £45million fortune if they split because ‘it’s what will keep us together’.
Miss Price, who has four children by three fathers, arrived with Hayler for a showdown at the Pountneys’ five-bedroom detached home in an affluent West Sussex village. They were quickly let in shortly before the curtains were drawn at 3pm.
Hayler left the house after just 30 minutes with no comment. When Miss Price emerged three hours later, she hid her eyes behind sunglasses and was escorted to her car by Mr Pountney.
The split comes just days after she spoke of her love for Hayler, describing him as a ‘good man’ and gushing: ‘I’ve never been this happy with anyone before. With me and Kieran it’s all about the kids and being together and just having a family.
‘I’m much more chilled – I haven’t even had mad pregnancy hormones so I think that must be down to the fact he makes me so happy.’
Mrs Pountney, who has a ten-year-old son and is a director of her husband’s tyre recycling business, was also a bridesmaid for Miss Price when she married Alex Reid in Las Vegas in 2010.
Neighbours said yesterday that Mr Pountney told them he acted as both best man and father-of-the-bride at Miss Price’s wedding to Hayler. Mrs Pountney’s sister-in-law Jackie said: ‘I’m very upset about it. I have no idea what has gone on.’
Mr Hayler’s grandfather David said: ‘It’s come as a shock.’
Following her Twitter onslaught, Miss Price later released a more eloquent statement on her website, which read:
‘I appreciate most people will have seen my tweets on the subject of my marriage to Kieran.
‘I make no apologies for them though it will be appreciated that, sending them immediately after Kieran confirmed to me what he had been doing for the last 7 months, those tweets were a sign of my heart breaking. That he was doing it with a close friend of nearly 20 years is hard to understand.
‘This statement however is from my head, not my heart. I am appalled that someone I loved, trusted and believed in has behaved in this way.
‘If he had so little respect for our relationship I would have hoped he would have thought about our child or the one that we have on the way. That he did not means he will no longer be part of my life. I will do all I can to ensure he maintains a relationship with his children should he want that.
‘I am so grateful for the love of my children and family at this time.’
This statement was posted on Miss Price’s website. She wrote: ‘Kieran confirmed to me what he had been doing for the last 7 months’

AS HER THIRD MARRIAGE CRUMBLES, WE LOOK BACK AT KATIE’S MANY LOVES OVER THE YEARS
Leandro Penna (2011-2012)
Katie started dating Argentine model Leandro Penna after meeting him at an Academy Awards after-party in 2011.
Despite the language barrier – Katie didn’t know any Spanish and Leandro barely spoke English – and a six year age gap, the couple went on to get engaged, announcing the news in April 2012.
But in October 2012 Katie announced that she had ‘mutually’ decided to end her relationship with the toyboy.
Former romance: Katie and Leandro announced their engagement in April 2012, but in October 2012 Katie confirmed they had ended their relationship
Alex Reid (2009-2011)
Just eight weeks after Peter Andre ended their marriage, Price rebounded with cagefighter and sometime actor Alex Reid in summer 2009.
In January 2010, Reid entered the Celebrity Big Brother house and exited the reality show as the winner before dashing off to Las Vegas to wed Price in a surprise ceremony on February 2.
The couple’s different careers kept them apart and it wasn’t long before speculation their marriage was on the rocks and they later separated in January 2011.
The look of love…? Price and Reid share a kiss in Spain after just a month of dating
The couple first met on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in January 2004 when Price was in a relationship with someone else.
After getting together after leaving the show, she soon pregnant with their first child together, a son Junior, who was born in June 2005 and three months later the couple married in a £2million wedding ceremony in Hampshire.
Two years later, the couple expanded their family with daughter Princess Tiaamii.
During their marriage, the couple suffered two heartbreaking miscarriages – the most recent being a couple of months before their split.
In May 2009, the couple announced they were separating after three and a half years of marriage, which was followed by their divorce in September 2009.
A jungle romance: Price fell for Peter Andre in the Australian jungle in the 2004 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Live-in lover: Price dated Scott Sullivan for 15 months, before dumping him for Andre
Scott Sullivan, the son of a millionaire, was living with Price when she decided to take part in the 2004 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.
The couple had been dating for 15 months after meeting in a bar near her Sussex home.
But Sullivan, then 21, was dealt a crushing blow when he, along with millions of TV viewers, watched Price fall in love with Andre on the reality show.
Although Price had dismissed her relationship with Sullivan to Andre in the jungle, she was careful not to make a move on the pop star until she had officially dumped him.
Discussing Sullivan during a late night chat with Andre, she said: ‘I know he’s not the one. He’s a nice guy but no way. I’m not going to marry him, so why waste my time?’
So it was no surprise to see Andre and Price stepping out as a couple on returning to the UK.
But Sullivan managed to get his revenge on Price when he dated her arch-nemesis Jodie Marsh for four months in the same year.
Just a few months after her first son Harvey was born, Price managed to find another boyfriend in male model Matt Peacock.
The then 24-year-old star met 18-year-old tanning salon assistant Peacock at a car show where she was modelling.
During their short romance, the couple holidayed together in Ayia Napa and did a joint interview for a glossy magazine, in which she described him as ‘my rock’ as she came to terms with Harvey’s health problems.
But the couple split after just two months together after a big argument, with friends of Peacock claiming at the time he struggled to deal with the media attention.
Brief romance: Price dated tanning salon assistant Matt Peacock in summer 2002
Naive: Gareth Gates was just 17 when he lost his virginity to a pregnant Katie
Price was six months pregnant with Harvey when she embarked on a brief affair with Pop Idol runner-up Gareth Gates, who at 17 was eight years her junior.
The couple’s fling was outed when the expectant model and aspiring pop star were photographed leaving the same hotel room.
Price happily talked about taking his virginity to the press, but the embarrassed singer initially denied it, accusing her of lying.
It was only a year later, he finally admitted she was telling the truth, saying: ‘I was 17 years old and had just moved from Bradford to London when, to be honest, I was pursued by her.
‘I shouldn’t have denied it, but I did. I was naive. But I have learned a lot about people from this experience.’
In hindsight, Price told Piers Morgan in 2009 she regretted the fling: ‘It’s terrible – I was still young, I was pregnant, I didn’t have the dad about and I still wanted to be loved.’
Dwight Yorke (2001-2002)
Tobago-born footballer Dwight Yorke was a player for Manchester United when he first met Price in a Soho nightclub after a game at Charlton.
The pair embarked on a rocky on/off relationship, which was well documented in the tabloids, but came to an end when she fell pregnant with eldest son Harvey.
‘Unstable': There’s been no love lost between Price and ex-boyfriend Dwight Yorke
Six weeks after Harvey was born in May 2002, he was diagnosed with septo-optic dysplasia, meaning he was blind.
Price and Yorke briefly reconciled and took a trip to Tobago so the footballer’s family could meet baby Harvey, but the trip finally ended their rocky relationship and Price decided to raise Harvey as a single mother.
Price has often criticised Yorke for not spending enough time with Harvey and described Andre as more of a father to Harvey.
Infamous: Price and Dane Bowers’ sex tape was leaked on to the internet
Celebrity Big Brother star Dane Bowers was at the height of his fame with boy band Another Level when he met Price in a London nightclub in August 1998.
In her first autobiography Being Jordan, she recalled falling head over heels for the singer – who was two years her junior.
She wrote: ‘Within weeks of meeting him I was seriously thinking that at last I had found the man of my dreams, the man I wanted to marry.
‘I believed that I had found my soulmate, someone I could totally trust to love me for myself.’
Jealousy appeared to be a factor in their relationship with Price suspecting him of cheating on her, and Bowers asking her to give up topless modelling.
During their relationship, they were embarrassed when a sex tape featuring the two of them and another woman was stolen from their flat and leaked on to the internet.
Their relationship started to sour after Another Level split and Bowers started to forge a solo career by duetting with Victoria Beckham.
Although both has disputed each other’s version of events, Price fell pregnant with Bowers’ child around the end of their relationship and decided to have an abortion.
When the couple finally split, a distraught Price overdosed on painkillers.
First love: Price first got a taste of life as a celebrity couple with her first fiance, Warren ‘Ace’ Furman
Warren ‘Ace’ Furman
Price was just 18 when she met Furman, who was then a primetime TV star better known as Ace in Gladiators.
She moved into his Essex home and the couple soon got engaged, but split two years later.
In an interview two years ago, Furman claimed Price’s behaviour ‘changed’ when she underwent her first breast enhancement operation, taking her from a 32B to a 32D.
After they broke up and Price’s fame ascended, Furman sold stories to the press about their ‘kinky’ sex life, claiming there were ‘whip marks on the ceiling’ of her bedroom.
He said of their split: ‘I really loved her but I couldn’t cope with her weird obsessions.’
In response, she claimed he was ‘jealous and possessive’ in her first autobiography Being Jordan.
