Katie Price says 'my children have not been taken off me' after a celebrity mum has her two kids placed into foster care after claims of neglect

The 40-year-old shut down speculation she is the party-mad mother who has chosen a wild social life over her kids, during a live Instagram video this afternoon.

Katie said: "I'd like to clarify I'm not the person in the papers today whose kids have been banned or taken away from them.

"I've not been banned from seeing my kids either."

The TV star has enjoyed a number of wild nights out in the last few months following the breakdown of her marriage to Kieran Hayler, with ex-husband Peter Andre recently banning her from seeing their children Junior, 13, and Princess, 10.

However, Katie has toned her antics down since finding love with new man Kris Boyson and said that she's "happier than ever" now that Kieran has left the family home.

Yesterday The Sun revealed how a celeb mum has had two of her children taken away and placed into foster care.

Sources claimed the mother, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was said to have been neglecting the youngsters while pursuing her glitzy lifestyle.

Social services are understood to have intervened after a member of the public claimed they had seen her allegedly assaulting one of her children in public.

Officers are then said to have uncovered a series of other problems.

A judge is believed to have placed the children into care with another family close to the mum’s £1million home.

It is understood both infants were regularly left to “fend for themselves” while she continued to strut the red carpet.

A well-placed source said: “She has been struggling to cope recently.

"They are lovely kids, very well mannered.

“But she won’t give up her celebrity life to concentrate properly on them and things have all got a bit too much.”

The source added: “Social services got involved after she was accused of pulling her son’s hair.

"Then further problems came to light.”

The mum, a well-known face on television, is said to be distraught at losing her children.

A spokesman for the local authority which is handling the case said: “We cannot and would not comment on care proceedings.”

The star’s agent did not respond to a request for comment.
