Katie Price slams ex Dwight Yorke for refusing to see son Harvey

Katie Price slams ex Dwight Yorke for refusing to see son Harvey

The TV personality shares Harvey with the former Trinidad and Tobago national football team coach.

Katie Price has claimed her ex-boyfriend Dwight Yorke still refuses invitations to spend time with their son.

After dating briefly in 2001, Katie, now 45, announced that she and the former Aston Villa icon were expecting their first child together.

However, the relationship was short-lived as the I’m A Celeb star allegedly discovered that Dwight, now 51, had been unfaithful.

Speaking about the allegations in 2009, the ex-footballer said: "I think anyone who's in a relationship would like their partner to be faithful and I'm saying I wasn't the perfect partner, she knows that.”

It’s claimed that after Katie - real name Katrina Amy Alexandra Alexis Katie Price - gave birth to Harvey, 21, Dwight denied paternity until a test successfully proved he was the child’s dad.

In a new interview with The Guardian, the mum-of-five has opened up about the relationship that the father and son share 21 years later.

She said: “The door is always open. I would love the day I see Dwight and Harvey in front of each other.

"My mum still contacts his manager every year, and asks does he want to see Harvey for his birthday, and it’s always the same – 'no'."

In 2009, Dwight said the lack of time spent with Harvey was due to being based in the North West of England playing for Manchester United on a daily basis.

“Not sitting here and say I'm a total perfect father, I've made mistakes along the way and I would love to turn the clock back,” he previously said.

Speaking about Harvey’s personality, Katie told the publication: “I just want Dwight to know what a gorgeous young man Harvey is.

“Harvey has so much banter. He’s just a funny little b*******.

"You never know what’s going to come out of his mouth. He rules the roost when he’s home."

Harvey, who is the eldest son of Katie, has Prader-Willi Syndrome, as well as being autistic and partially blind. He currently lives in a residential specialist college called National Star College and requires constant care.

As per The Prader-Willi Syndrome Association, one in 22,000 children will be born with PWS. It is also estimated that there are around 2,000 people living with the condition in the UK.

MedlinePlus further states that those with the syndrome are prone to behavioural problems, such as outbursts and stubbornness, as well as compulsive behaviours like skin picking.

Tyla has contacted a representative for Dwight Yorke for a comment.
