Katie Price is an English journalist, reality TV celebrity, author, former model, singer, and entrepreneur. She rose to stardom as a topless model known as “Jordan,” a self-made pop culture phenomenon. She eventually started using her own name. In the tabloid The Sun, she was the most successful page three girl. She has a lot of modeling, hosting, and reality TV employment thanks to her significant plastic surgery.

Her personal life, despite being three times married, left a lot to be desired. Many chastised her for putting her children in the spotlight, particularly her eldest son, Harvey, who had physical, emotional, and mental disabilities, while many praised her for bringing special needs children’s issues to light.

Katie Price was born Katrina Amy Alexandra Alexis Infield in Paddington, Brighton, England, on May 22, 1978. She is possibly most recognized for her appearances in the British tabloid daily The Sun as a topless female beauty model. Jordan’s ascent to prominence as a result of this exposure also carried with it some infamy for having had her breasts surgically augmented. She has been the focus of a number of reality TV shows that have chronicled her often turbulent home life, beginning with a trilogy of documentaries by British filmmaker Richard Macer.
Price has had a number of high-profile personal relationships. She married three men: musician Peter Andre (2005-2009), professional fighter Alex Reid (2010-2011), and builder and part-time stripper Kieran Hayler in 2013. Hayler cheated on Price, and the world wondered about the future of their marriage as Price debated whether or not she would stay with him because of their children. Price told ‘Mirror’ (celebrity news) in June 2014 that she felt obligated to give Hayler a second chance because she owed it to her children, however she also admitted that the reconciliation was not going well.
