Katie Price has taken aim at Dwight Yorke, the father of her eldest child Harvey.
Back in 2002, Katie welcomed her son with the Trinidadian coach and football player following a short-lived romance.
It’s understood that Katie, now 45, and Dwight, 51, broke up after she became pregnant at 23 and discovered he had cheated on her.
She has since claimed that the former Premier League player disowned their son, who was born with a rare condition called Prader-Willi syndrome and is also blind and has autism.
Katie has now claimed that one of the last time she saw her ex was when she gave birth.
Speaking on the most recent episode of her podcast, Katie slammed Dwight for being late to Harvey’s birth and refusing to cut the umbilical cord after he’d been delivered.
‘Dwight turned up at the last minute but he didn’t want to come in the room or cut the cord so dad did it, he cut the cord,’ she said.
‘And anyway I remember Dwight saying “oh there’s a bruise” and I thought “don’t insult me”.’
She went on to share that the bruise was a Mongolian blue spot, a type of birthmark which eventually fades.
Katie said their exchange marked the ‘last time I sort of saw Dwight,’ adding: ‘I didn’t see him many times after that.’
Over the years the reality TV star has shared details about her turbulent relationship with Dwight.
Two years ago she said that while she wanted Harvey to have his dad in his life, ‘he just wasn’t interested in any of it’.
‘”This isn’t about me. This is your son and your flesh and blood”, I said,’ she wrote in her book, Katie Price: Harvey and Me.
‘But he just didn’t give a s**t.
‘There’s only so much you can try before you realise you’re flogging a dead horse. I got up and left and that’s the last time I saw him. I haven’t heard from him since.’
In 2009, Dwight told Sky News his lack of involvement in Harvey’s life was the result of ‘a combination of different things’.
‘One my time schedule and being based up in Manchester and a footballer on an everyday basis,’ he began.
‘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 rejected Katie’s claims he abandoned their son and said: ‘I am not going to hear any more that I did not care for Harvey, or have any understanding of his needs or that I was not interested in his welfare.’
