Peter Andre and his wife Emily are said to have been left 'upset' after getting dragged back into drama with Katie Price more than a decade after their divorce.
He's still linked to Price through their two children, Junior, 18, and Princess, 16, though the former couple's relationship is known to have been strained in the years since their split.
One new conflict comes in the form of a book set to be released this week by Price's mum, Amy, titled The Last Word.
Amy said she wrote the book to 'set the record straight' about her daughter's life as well as offer up some 'confessions' about her own.
Speaking about its release, the mum said: “I know I’m going to get told off. Any grievances or things I’ve been upset about that people have said or done, I’ve put it in.”
In The Last Word, Amy takes aim at her daughter's exes, including Peter, Alex Reid, Kieran Hayler and Carl Woods.
She makes a series of allegations against Pete, claiming he was 'manipulative' and 'passive aggressive' and describing him as a 'handsome prince', while her daughter was the 'sacrificial lamb' taken to slaughter in exchange for Andre's fame.
The book is set to be released in full tomorrow (12 July), but Andre has reportedly already taken issue with the claims made by Price's mum.
A source close to the 'Mysterious Girl' singer told OK! Amy's comments are 'upsetting' to him and Emily, adding the couple are prepared to fight back.
One source told the publication: “Pete’s considering legal action. He just doesn’t understand why his name keeps being mentioned – it was a long time ago. This shouldn’t be allowed to happen again and is upsetting for him and Emily.”
Similar claims have been made by a source who spoke to Closer, who commented: "He is absolutely livid about some of the things which have been said about him. They are unfair and untrue and he feels like he is being used to sell books.
“But this is his life and it has caused him a lot of upset. Peter knows the truth. He knows what he is and what he isn’t. After all he has done for Katie and the kids over the years, he thinks he deserves to be treated with a bit more respect than this.”
It's far from the first time Andre has butted heads with the Prices since the divorce. The former glamour model has previously had to make a public apology to Andre after he accused her of defamation, and in 2015 Price accused Andre and his agent of leaking private information which damaged her reputation.
