Furious Peter Andre instructs lawyers over Katie Price ‘lies’ in new book and ‘he’s sick of being dragged into her life’

FURIOUS Peter Andre has called in lawyers over claims his ex-wife Katie Price has made in her new book, Harvey & Me.

The singer has instructed his legal team to contact Katie after she claimed Pete “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 say "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, out tomorrow, Katie says 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 says 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 writes: "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.

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."
