London: Glamour model Katie Price`s marriage to Alex Reid is in trouble and according to reports it is Pakistani origin boxer Amir Khan who is behind the split.

Last week the 32-year-old model had taken to Twitter to announce that her marriage is indeed "in crisis" and it is her closeness to Amir Khan that was the final straw for Reid, reported Sun online.

The 24-year-old world champion has been linked to Price many times in the media and the mother-of-three had flown to Las Vegas last month to watch one of his bouts.

"The breaking point for Alex came when he saw stories about Katie and Amir Khan. Then when Katie announced she was running the London Marathon with Andrew Gould this year, it was another nail in the coffin" said a source close to the 35-year-old former cage fighter.

Price and Khan first met when they recorded TV show `Scream If You Know The Answer`, in May last year. An announcement about a split, which will end a marriage lasting just 11 months, is expected any day.

Price was earlier married to `Mysterious` girl singer Peter Andre for three years and they divorced in 2010.
