Katie Price has addressed the backlash from trolls who mum-shamed her for supposedly posting an 'inappropriate' video of her son Harvey.
Earlier this month, the former model shared an intimate video of her 20-year-old son who was lying in her bed.
The viral clip begins by showing Harvey - who is diagnosed with autism and Prader–Willi syndrome - resting in her bed.
Price, 44, says: "Look at what a cheeky s**t he is! Harv, what you doing in my bed?"
The son replies: "I'm cuddling."
"Cuddling?" Price asks. "You snore! Harv... I want you out my bed!"
"Alright mum," Harvey then says.
Katie sarcastically replies: "F**k sake Harv... Honestly Harv," while Harvey adds: "Here we go..."
Commenting on the video, one viewer wrote: "Wholly inappropriate.
"That poor young man. Leave him in peace. Always exploiting for coin."
"Why are you exploiting Harvey when times get hard," put another.
While someone else added: "Totally inappropriate at his age regardless of his needs."
Others saw no wrong-doing in the clip, with one person commenting: "Oh you two make me smile your love as a mother is lush and so unbreakable."
Another commented: "Ahhh nothing better than cuddles with your mum you are a fantastic mummy too."
"This video is so heart warming but so funny at the same time," put a third.
In an interview with Women's Radio Station yesterday (16 January), Price has now had her say on the situation: "Harvey is a big baby. At college they are not allowed to cuddle and touch him or anything. When he’s here, he just wants to hold my hand, stroke my hair, give me kisses.
"I don’t care what anyone says, they can think what they like."
Commenting on Harvey's girlfriend that he met at college, the mum added: "They’re not sociable. They’re blunt and matter of fact, and it just makes me laugh."
Harvey's father is former Manchester United and Aston Villa footballer Dwight Yorke.
Last November, Price was criticised for picturing two of her children - Bunny and Jett - sitting on a stationary horse without protective helmets.
The reality star shared the photo with her social media followers recently and captioned it: "My three babies."
Some were supportive of the photo, with one person commenting: "Love the hearts on his hind quarters from the clip. Good old Wallis."
However, many also questioned the mother as to why her children weren't wearing protective gear while sitting on such a large horse.
One thought: "Love the picture but where are your two babies riding hats? Appreciate the horse is still at time of picture."
A second person said: "No saddle or hats! Do you know how quickly a horse can bolt???"
