Katie Price’s ex-husband Kieran Hayler has reportedly warned their two children that she is facing jail for harassment.

The former glamour model, 43, was recently charged with harassing Kieran’s fiancée Michelle Penticost and will appear in court when she returns home from Thailand. 

According to The Sun, friends of Kieran believe he wants to see Katie locked up if she is convicted.

An insider said: ‘Kieran and Michelle have kept a dignified silence throughout this and, after learning Katie was charged, they hope justice will be served.

‘Kieran thinks that if Katie has done something wrong, she needs to learn that actions have consequences.

‘He has told their two children that if Katie has done something bad, she could go to prison. Kieran has always been honest with the children as he wants them to understand right and wrong.’

The source added that it has been a ‘stressful’ time for everyone involved and now the couple just want a resolution.

Katie and Kieran are parents to Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven, while he and Michelle are parents to seven-month-old son Apollo. 

Katie is also mother to son Harvey, 19, with her ex Dwight Yorke along with Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with her ex-husband Peter Andre. 

Katie was arrested in January on suspicion of breaching her restraining order after she allegedly texted Michelle.

The star is banned from contacting Kieran’s partner under the terms of a five-year restraining order imposed after she verbally abused her in a school playground. 

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Katie Price and Kieran Hayler for comment.

It comes after Katie was ‘suspected of sending an anonymous poison pen’ letter to a family member of Kieran’s in which his fiancée Michelle is described as a ‘w**re’.

It is claimed the note had a Heathrow Airport postmark on the envelope and Kieran believes it was sent just a few hours before Katie jetted to Thailand earlier this month.

A source told the Daily Mirror: ‘Michelle has passed the letter to the police. It’s been a very upsetting time. They just want to move on.’

MailOnline learned Katie, currently away with fiancé Carl Woods, will appear before magistrates in Crawley on April 12 for allegedly breaching a restraining order against Michelle.

The troubled reality star was arrested on January 21 over claims she sent an abusive text to Michelle.

She spent the night in a cell after being quizzed by officers at Worthing Police station who had earlier picked Katie up from her home in Horsham after a report was made.

Katie allegedly branded flight attendant Michelle a ‘c***ing w***e piece of s***’ and a ‘gutter s**g.

MailOnline understands that Katie may have breached the order a second time when she sent an anonymous letter attacking Michelle to a relative just before flying out to Thailand.

A police source told MailOnline: ‘Katie Price was arrested a few weeks ago for breaching a restraining order placed against her following an argument with the fiancée of her former partner, Kieran Hayler.

‘Now she is believed to have written an anonymous note attacking Michelle Penticost via one of her family members.

‘As such Katie has been charged with harassment and will appear before Crawley magistrates next month.’

Mother of five Katie was banned from contacting Michelle, 39, ‘directly or indirectly’ after swearing at her in a school playground in 2019.

Breaking the terms of the restraining order carries a maximum prison sentence of five years.

Katie also risks jail time for being arrested while still on licence for her drink-drive shame.

Michelle, who also has a ten-year old son Valentino from a previous relationship, has grown close to Katie’s two children she shares with Kieran.

The couple met in 2018 and got engaged the following year.

Former Loose Women host Katie travelled to the Far East with Carl for her latest bout of cosmetic surgery – a boob job and full body liposuction procedure – and has remained there for over two weeks.

The couple, who got engaged last April, have experienced a tumultuous 12 months.

Katie avoided jail in December when she was handed a 16-week prison sentence, suspended for a year, as well as a two-year driving ban after admitting drink-driving while disqualified in December.

She also tested positive for cocaine after she rolled her BMW near her home in Horsham.

Last month, fiancé Carl issued a public denial on Instagram over abuse claims, saying he ‘didn’t lay a finger’ on Katie and said he had ‘black and white proof’ to clear his name after he was charged with using threatening and abusive behaviour towards her in an incident at their house in Essex.

Carl is Katie’s first serious major relationship since her split from Kieran in 2019.

They were together for seven years, marrying in 2013 in the Bahamas, but their romance was marred by Kieran’s two flings with two of Katie’s close pals.

She was previously married to Peter Andre for four years, before her ill-fated marriage to Alex Reid, which lasted just 11 months.

The Real Husbands of Katie Price

In the decades since she first rose to fame, Katie Price has enjoyed – and quite likely endured – a decidedly busy love life that has seen her walk down the aisle three times before heading to divorce court in equal measure. Here’s a look at the trio with whom she exchanged ‘I dos’… and ‘I don’ts’:

 

PETER ANDRE (2005 – 2009)

The nation got to watch love blossom between the pair when they starred alongside one another on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here back in 2004. The flying sparks soon became nuptials, with blushing bride Katie and her erstwhile pop hunk beau tying the knot at Highclere Castle (the grand Berkshire estate of Downton Abbey fame) in September 2005. Katie, who was already mother to son Harvey (born in 2002 following a romance with former footballer Dwight Yorke), soon started a family with her new husband. The couple welcomed son Junior in 2005, while daughter Princess followed in 2007. Creation between the pair also came artistically, with the release of reality programmes, a failed talk show and a foray into the music world. However, after four years of securing their position as the Ken and Barbie of reality TV and glossy magazine deals, the pair announced in 2009 that they were going their separate ways.

 

 

ALEX REID (2010 – 2012) 

Katie soon switched her romantic allegiance from a onetime ab-bearing pop heartthrob to musclebound MMA fighter Alex Reid. The two met at Michelle Heaton’s 30th birthday party at London’s Cafe de Paris. But shortly after they got together, Katie dumped Alex on live TV, only for him to win her back and the pair go from strength to strength. Weeks after proudly cheering her man on to a win on the 2010 edition of Celebrity Big Brother (also featuring none other than her ex-boyfriend Dane Bowers), Katie jetted off to Las Vegas to tie the knot with her new partner in February 2010 after just seven months of dating – and nine months after divorcing Peter. Following their Sin City sojourn, the pair returned to their native UK, where they had a formal ceremony – which was filmed for a TV series. However, after just 11 months of marriage, the pair announced they were splitting and their divorce was finalised in March 2012. While Katie declared at the time that she married Alex ‘too soon’, she would later go on to reveal that a major factor in their split was his cross-dressing alter-ego Roxanne.

 

 

KIERAN HAYLER (2013 – 2021)

Showing herself to be a true woman of the times, Katie embarked on a romance with former stripper Kieran after the two met on the now-defunct Blackberry Messenger service in 2012. And just two months after altering the paths of their lives via those thumb-tapped fateful opening messages, the twosome would go on to exchange nuptials in the Caribbean. Kieran proposed to a thrilled Katie on Christmas Day 2012, and just three weeks later, the pair would be pronounced husband and wife in the idyllic shores of the Bahamas on January 16, 2013. They had their marriage blessed in Weston-super Mare, and in the months that followed, it appeared that Katie had finally found her happily ever after. They welcomed son Jett in August 2013, and daughter Bunny in August 2014. But Katie’s world came crashing down in 2014, when she discovered that Kieran had cheated on her with her close friend of 20 years, Jane Pountney, and was enjoying a fling with another of her pals, Chrissy Thomas. After publicly lashing out at all parties involved (and naming her pet pigs after her friends-turned-foes), Katie appeared determined to make things work when she renewed her vows with Kieran in 2015. But alas, it would not turn out to be third time lucky for Katie, as the pair split in 2018 amid even more cheating allegations. Their ‘amicable’ divorce was finalised in early 2021.
