Katie Price unfollows ex Peter Andre on Instagram after he takes legal action over 'lies' in book

KATIE Price unfollowed her ex husband Peter Andre on Instagram over the weekend.

Last month, The Sun revealed that Peter, 48, had called in lawyers over claims Katie made in her new book, Harvey & Me.

The Mysterious Girl singer has instructed his legal team to contact Katie after she claimed Pete "had no interest" in staying in touch with former stepson Harvey.

In light of the furore, Katie has unfollowed her former husband on Instagram and still isn't at the time of publishing.

One fan told The Sun: "It's so weird as when I went to his profile on Friday, Katie was following him – but today she's not".

It should be noted that Peter, who is married to Emily MacDonagh, didn't follow the former glamour model on social media prior to this.

We revealed in October that Peter had called in lawyers over claims Katie made in her new book, Harvey & Me, claiming he “had no interest” in staying in touch with former stepson Harvey.

The Sun understands that Peter’s solicitors sent legal letters and evidence after Katie’s claims that he refused to stay in contact with her disabled son – whose father is footballer Dwight Yorke – after their 2009 split.

Sources said at the time: "Pete is a great dad – he was devastated to be blocked from seeing Harvey and begged to see him more and more.

"He's tried on hundreds of occasions to see him. Pete is sick of Katie's lies and being dragged into her life again.

"He doesn't want her talking about him. He doesn't talk about her, she needs to stop talking about him."

In the book, Katie wrote that her son Harvey was upset when she and the singer split, saying: "Even mentioning Pete's name to Harvey stresses him out."

Pete helped to raise Harvey during the couple's four-year marriage after the teenager's biological dad Dwight Yorke abandoned him as a baby.

But Katie said when they split in 2009 it had a huge impact on Harvey, who has Prader-Willi Syndrome, autism and blindness.

The 43-year-old star wrote: "The split from Pete really upset Harvey. It must have been frustrating for him at the time because he couldn't express how he felt.

"But now he can and he remembers a lot more than you'd think. It's really sad."

Peter has since remarried and had two more children, Theo, 5 and Amelia, 7.

He co-parents Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with Katie.

In 2009, Pete was given compensation and a public apology from his ex after he sued for defamation over an interview in Heat magazine.

She had falsely claimed he had cheated on her and did not genuinely care for her disabled son, Harvey.

Katie agreed to pay him undisclosed damages and make a public apology in a statement that was read at the high court.

Approached by The Sun, Katie's rep said: "I can confirm Kate has not heard from Peter's lawyers today.

"Everything in the book detailing Peter's and Harvey's relationship was cleared by legal.

"Kate of course wanted Peter to continue his relationship with Harvey following their split, but unfortunately due to Harvey's medical needs and the care he required this wasn't possible.

"We have maintained a positive relationship with Peter and will continue to do so for all those involved."
