Katie Price is never far from the headlines – usually because of something dumb that’s she been involved in or said – but this time it’s a bit different as her and her son Harvey have been targeted by blackmailers to the tune of £50,000.

The first indication that something was wrong happened when she tweeted the following on Saturday night:
It later emerged that the reason she cancelled her appearance was that blackmailers had threatened to ‘smash Harvey’s face in’ and demanded that £50,000 and an Armani dress (bizarre) be delivered to an East London address. They also claimed that they would leak details of an affair Katie’s husband was involved in to the press if they weren’t given the money.
A source close to Katie said the following about the situation:
This is all the more horrifying for Katie because she has experienced threats against her children before. On three separate occasions she has had to get the police involved.
The thought of anyone harming the kids sickens her to the core, and until the police have caught the perpetrator, she feels she just can’t leave them.
Katie is really shaken by this and is hoping against hope that the police catch this person as soon as possible. She knows they will be living in fear until they do.
Sounds like a tough break for the reality TV star, but hopefully the police can actually find these jerks and arrest them fairly quickly so their lives can go back to normal. It seems like they’re on it so hopefully it won’t be too long until the situation is resolved.
Also, £50,000 doesn’t seem like that much money to blackmail someone for when you think about it? Surely you would set your sights a little higher and demand a bit more if you were going to do something like this?
