Peter Andre has hit back at his ex-wife Katie Price’s claims he’s making money from her ahead of her fourth wedding to fiancé Carl Woods.
Katie, 43, has jetted out to Las Vegas to tie the knot with Carl, 32, and after stories emerged that Pete and her other ex-husband Kieran Hayler had sent legal letters raising concern for their children over the plans, she hit out at them on Instagram.
But Pete, 48, broke his silence this weekend to deny her allegations he was trying to make money off of her ahead of the nuptials and ‘never gets involved’ when it comes to commenting on her turbulent love life.
He wrote bluntly: ‘I don’t do stories. It’s not my bag. I never get involved. Just thought I’d let anyone interested know. Nice try though [smiley emoji].’

Pete, who generally doesn’t engage with Katie’s social media activity, took to Instagram with his side of the story after the reality star made accusations online.
Naming Pete and Kieran in a damning Instagram post, she wrote: ‘I’m asking you both kindly to leave me alone now and stop making money from my name.’
The online spat comes as pals of her ex-husband Kieran claimed Katie could be kept away from some of her children if she marries Carl Woods in Las Vegas.
A friend told MailOnline both Kieran and Peter have sent legal letters raising concerns for their children Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, and Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven, if the troubled model, 43, goes ahead with marrying former Love Island star Carl, 32.

The pal branded Katie ‘a selfish mother’ for putting herself first rather than focussing on the relationship with her family, who they claim have been kept in the dark about her fourth marriage.
They told MailOnline: ‘Kieran and Peter are livid Katie hasn’t taken the children’s feelings into consideration and has gone completely behind everybody’s back.
‘Pete has already sent legal letters today. Kieran feels she is putting Carl first and is a very selfish mother and has done this because all she cares about is her relationship with him.’

The source claims Katie’s children, in particular Jett, doesn’t want to be around their future stepdad Carl and they’re ‘shocked’ the former Loose Women panelist ‘wants to marry a man that her children don’t like.’
Katie posted on her Instagram story that she feels ex-husbands ‘Peter and Kieran have contributed to the state of my mental health’ and asks them both to stop using their children as a ‘pawn because it isn’t fair.’
MailOnline understands that Katie plans to get married in the next couple of days and will broadcast the nuptials on her YouTube channel.
However, the source believes it is unlikely Katie will have the time to buy a white gown for the occasion, adding ‘they wouldn’t be surprised if she walks down the aisle in some prostitute’s dress or a short skirt and high heels, which is so her style right now.’

Katie was pictured on Friday drinking what appeared to be an alcoholic cocktail despite the fact she was meant to have taken a course at The Priory following her drink drive charge at the end of September.
The mother-of-five faces a possible prison sentence after pleading guilty to drink-driving and admitting taking drugs after a crash near her home in Sussex.
Kieran’s friend added that they believed Katie would have ‘laid low’ following the charge in which she is due to be sentenced on December 15 and questioned how she was allowed to go to America given ‘how strict’ rules are allowing tourists into the country.
They’re also surprised Katie has agreed to have a second Vegas wedding after she married her third husband Alex Reid, 46, in Sin City 10 years ago.

Friends close to Kieran said he had no idea she was flying to America or getting married to Carl but as soon as he saw her in Vegas, he knew she would be walking down the aisle ‘because she’s obsessed with this romance.’
However, the pal doubts this marriage will last very long, and won’t receive backing from her close family members including her mum, Amy.
They said: ‘Their marriage will be over before it’s even got going, which will be embarrassing for them. I would love to know what her mum thinks, what Amy f***ing Price thinks.’
