London: After weeks of speculation, Katie Price a.k.a. Jordan has finally announced she has separated from husband Alex Reid after a stormy 11-month marriage.
In a statement, the 32-year-old glamour model admitted that she married the cage fighter ‘too quickly’.
“We all make mistakes. Alex and I have had a number of difficulties over the past few months,” the Telegraph quoted her as saying.
“I accept that these were in part caused by my marrying too quickly – we all make mistakes and this was one,” she added.
Jordan also blamed Reid, 35, for changing and becoming obsessed with fame.
“Alex changed from the man I fell in love with and some of his behaviour became difficult for me to understand and caused issues,” she said.
Jordan said his desire to promote himself ‘contributed to our alienation’.
The reality TV star also said the couple had failed to resolve their differences because ‘the issues between us are too deep rooted’.
The statement went on to say that Reid has asked Jordan to delay announcing their split because he wanted more time to think, but subsequently posed for newspaper photographs with her son Junior in a gym.
She denied reports she had discussed financial matters with her divorce lawyers, and said claims the announcement had been delayed so her film crew could capture Reid``s reaction on camera were a ‘complete fabrication’.
“I am deeply upset that my relationship with Alex has failed but I know it is the right thing for my children and I that we separate. My children are my absolute priority in this and they are being shielded from what is happening,” she said.
