Katie Price has said she "hates" her children's fathers and said she does not co-parent with them because they have no contact.

But the 43-year-old reality star and mother-of-five insisted she would never use her kids against her exes and believes in the importance of showing a united front for the children.

Price was asked on Netmums' Sweat, Snot & Tears podcast about co-parenting.

She said: "Forget it, I will stop you there. I hate the dads."

"The Priory number one and The Priory number two. That’s all I’m saying."

"My relationship with them are non-existent. I’m blocked from with one of the dads, and it was always lawyers, lawyers. And now I refuse to do lawyers, lawyers — but luckily they're old enough that I can talk to them direct.

"One dad there is just absolutely no contact with and he tries to control me all the time.

"And the other dad, I can’t bear him, but we talk for the kids."

The former glamour model — who checked herself into rehabilitation clinic The Priory in January 2020 and September this year — went on to tell the parenting podcast that she maintain the image of a happy relationship with her exes for the sake of her children.

She went on: "Never ever use the kids as a pawn.

"If you hate the other parent, don’t let your kids know and just do what’s best for the kids.

"You want a happy home when they are with you and a happy home when they go to them.

"Don't argue in front of them and just be happy for them — what you say behind closed doors when you argue doesn't matter, cause the kids don't hear it.

"Always think of them kids, they want their mum and they want their dad.

"Let your kids see both parents. Never use the kids, ever, just 'cause you hate your other half."

The former glamour model is mother to 19-year-old son Harvey, whose father is footballer Dwight Yorke. He initially denied paternity, and since it was proved by DNA test has had no contact with Harvey.

Price shares Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with first husband Peter Andre. They met on the third series of the ITV jungle reality show in 2004. They married in 2005 and split in 2009.

She married Kieran Hayler in 2013 and they share and Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven. The couple renewed their marriage vows three times before splitting in 2018.

Price began dating Carl Woods in June 2020 and in April this year they announced they were engaged to be married – her seventh engagement.

Last year Price's teenage daughter Princess revealed on her You Tube channel that her mother and father had very different approaches to parenting.

She said: "On my dad’s side things are more organised and just a bit more strict.

“Because when you come to my mum’s side she’s like ‘Yeah, you can have whatever you want. Go ahead!'"

She added: "I’m sorry to stitch my mum up here — but if it wasn’t for my dad, we probably wouldn’t have any manners.”

Price is due to appear in court on drink-driving charges on 15 December.
