Alex Reid ‘refuses to sign divorce statement’

Katie Price’s marriage woes are continuing after her husband Alex Reid reportedly refused to sign a statement confirming they were to separate.

According to The Sun, the couple attempted to work out a statement several days ago with her lawyer – but it was halted after Alex reportedly broke down and begged Katie to let him remind her why they first fell in love.

However the reality TV star – aka glamour model Jordan – is said to have refused, leaving them in a stalemate situation – but still living under the same roof.

“The situation is verging on the ridiculous,” a source told the paper. “Everything was agreed on the wording of the statement and the separation at the weekend.

“It was simple enough. A few lines saying the marriage hadn’t worked out, they wished each other well and they wouldn’t be saying anything further.

“Katie signed the papers but, when it came to Alex, he broke down and cried. He wouldn’t do it,” the insider added.

“He still thinks, given time, he could remind her why they fell in love in the first place. He’s a broken man – he can’t believe it hasn’t worked out.”

The paper also reports that Alex – who married Katie last February shortly after being crowned winner of Big Brother – also splashed out £5,000 on Christmas gifts for the star in an attempt to rekindle their romance.

It is also alleged that the cage fighter was devastated after pictures of Katie on a night out with boxer Amir Khan, appeared in the press.
