Bankrupt Katie Price has been unable to resist a new puppy – which comes with a ton of costs including food, vet visits and micro-chipping.
The former glamour model, 41, who was made bankrupt at a London court on Tuesday, having blown her entire £45million fortune over the years, had not been deterred by her financial woes when deciding to add to her long list of pets.
Katie’s newest furry friend, named King, means she is now the owner of three dogs, a cat and a hedgehog – all of which she will need to take with her if she ends up homeless as a result of her bankruptcy.
It is reported that the mother-of-five’s dog Sparkle had a litter and the surgically-enhanced beauty has been selling the offspring but one of the little pups had captured her heart.
A source told The Sun Online: “Even though she doesn’t know where she’s going to live and is totally skint, Katie’s decided to keep one of Sparkle’s puppies – so now she has three dogs, plus the hedgehog, a cat that wees everywhere and the horses.
“Everyone’s despairing – how will she find anywhere to rent with a zoo of animals?
“But she’s determined to have a new puppy. She keeps joking she craves babies or puppies.”
It comes after Katie didn’t bother to turn up in person to court on Tuesday or send a lawyer to fight her corner in regards to her finances.
JMW Solicitors, who represented the insolvency practitioner overseeing Price’s IVA, said: “She hasn’t acknowledged the petition.”
She had submitted a payment plan in the form of an Individual Voluntary Agreement late last year to manage repayments of an estimated £250,000 of debt.
But Katie was unable to meet her creditors’ demands and couldn’t pay back the six-figure amount in time.
She was supposed to be paying off £12,000 a month to her various creditors.
But Katie failed to satisfy the terms of her debt plan and in September a bankruptcy charge was laid on her West Sussex mansion.
After a chaotic week, it seems that Katie’s bankruptcy woes could leave her homeless just before Christmas.
Katie’s hectic week has also included a rumoured break-up from toyboy Kris.
It was claimed their romance was over for good, but their united appearance at Sheesh last night hints the couple are back together again.
Reports suggested the hunk dumped his on/off girlfriend over a furious row about her reality television show My Crazy Life.
Their turbulent romance hit rock bottom after Katie cheated on him with builder Charles Drury.
But Kris reportedly plans on sticking around to help Katie with her five kids and chauffer her around now she has no money for a nanny or driver.
Katie also hit headlines this week after drink-fuelled rage.
She blamed her money woes on ex husband Peter Andre in a bizarre boozy rant on a train.
