Alex Reid claims he was ‘abused’ by Katie Price (Picture: WireImage)
In 2019, he won a court case against her after she allegedly showed sexually explicit photos and videos of him to a Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side TV audience, and was awarded £250,000 in compensation and legal costs.
Reid claims he has so far only received £1000 from bankrupt Price – and on Monday, bailiffs were seen attending her home, reportedly to take items equalling the amount owed to her ex-husband.
He has now spoken out alleging he suffered ‘years of abuse’ from the My Crazy Life star, and says the court ruling in 2019 was a ‘landmark hearing … whereby a celebrity has intentionally publicly humiliated me.’
‘This is backed by years of direct threats from her mouth,’ he claimed to The Mirror.

He said it was ‘admirable how she sticks up for [son] Harvey’ but accused her of doing ‘exactly what people have done to you and your own son’ to other people.
Price has been married three times: to Reid, Peter Andre for four years, and Kieran Hayler for six years, with Reid saying he was ‘the shortest marriage to Price, which is really positive as I managed to get out and escape.’
‘Unfortunately I didn’t escape the years of abuse from my bitter ex,’ he claimed.
‘I walked away for years, but the continued abuse has been so much … the judge made a decision and she has to face her responsibility, as every action has consequences.’

A rep for Price told the outlet in response to the claims: ‘Let him get on with it… Kate won’t be responding to any stories put forward by Alex or his team. It’s old news and it’s boring now.’
Metro.co.uk has approached her reps for comment.
Reid’s comments come after bailiffs were seen outside Price’s home, with a source telling the Mail Online that High Court Enforcement officers ‘will be visiting two different locations including her mucky mansion to retrieve items to the value of the amount that Alex is due.’

Price was not believed to be at home in her so-called Mucky Mansion, as she travelled to Ireland on Sunday evening for a makeup masterclass in Dublin.
She has not commented on the reports of debt collectors at her home, however did take to Instagram where she shared a clip from an old interview with Jamie Laing’s Private Parts podcast.
In the clip, from a 2023 interview, she says: ‘This is the trouble, and even in therapy, I’ve realised men are the destroyer in my life.’
Later in the day, she again took to Instagram to advertise her OnlyFans.
Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Price for comment.
