Friends claim the chain of events that led to her arrest started after the 40-year-old had a text row with new toyboy Alex Adderson, 25, over his former flame Robyn Smart – and hours later the relationship was over.
The former glamour model feared Robyn is still the love of his life despite moving out of the Essex property they shared.
“Katie is always arguing over Alex’s ex Robyn. On the day of the incident, Katie had swapped vicious texts with Alex saying he was in love with his ex than her,’ claims the source.
According to a source, Katie then began texting her ex Kris Boyson, who was enjoying a 30th birthday in Woolwich, 60 miles from her house in Horsham, West Sussex.
She was so jealous that he might be surrounded by hot women that she jumped into her pink Range Rover and sped to the pub.
Yet the day had started off innocently enough when her manicurist friend came to visit and told her that she was getting engaged.
Although Katie's meant to be abstaining from alcohol due to her strict rehab regime with The Priory, she demanded they celebrate with a glass of wine – and things snowballed from there, says the friend.
“The day had already started off on a bad note when she had a lunchtime drink at home as a toast to her friend, who does her nails and announced her engagement, so Katie said: 'Let’s have a glass of wine'.
“When she saw Kris was out for his birthday, she got dressed up and went to see him.
“She sent him a private Snapchat video of her getting into the car, saying she’ll see him soon, but he thought she was joking.”
The night ended with Katie being arrested and spending 13 hours at a police station, after crashing her pink Range Rover into a parked car and a bush as she left the bash.
Kris collected her the following morning, and the pair have rekindled their romance since.
It is understood she was not injured in the crash and did not need medical treatment.
Katie and Alex started dating in September, a matter of days after she split from boyfriend of five months Kris.
However, the businessman and his ex Robyn were seen rowing in the street last week, reportedly due to the presence of Katie's car outside his house.
