Former cage fighter and ex of Katie Price and Chantelle Houghton, Alex Reid, has fallen on some hard times. Some very hard times indeed.

Alex, who was married to Katie for two years, has revealed that he is almost bankrupt and £400,000 in debt. He says he might have to take up fighting again to pay off his debts.

He’s living in a one-bedroom flat in North London and seems to think his ex-wife is out to get him.

He told The Mirror: “I won’t lie. I am petrified about getting back in the ring. I know I could be badly hurt. I’ve been hospitalised at least 10 times in my career with concussion, fractured orbital bones, all sorts.

“I know what I’m up against at my age because I am past my best. But I have no choice. How bad are things? I haven’t got a pot to p*** in.”

Alex, who has a daughter, Dolly, with Chantelle, says he ran up the huge bill during his marriage to Katie which ended in 2012. He also blamed legal fees from their split and then his separation from Chantelle.

He added: “The debts have been mounting up and it must be around £400,000 now. It is scary. I’ve been as low as anyone can go. Two and half years ago I thought about ending it all.

“Then I thought ‘how dare you’. I couldn’t put my family, my daughter and my ¬beautiful fiancée through that kind of hurt.

“The funny thing is I spent most of my money on Katie. When everything was going wrong between us I paid £8,000 for a holiday in the Maldives to try and bring us closer together.

“Holidays, rings, jewellery, clothes, none of it was a problem. There was always plenty of cash.”

But those haymaking days are but a distant memory for Alex, who believes Katie’s revelations about his cross-dressing ruined his chance of a media career.

He said: “I think Katie has tried to destroy me to be honest. I think she just got bored with me and saw me as a way of keeping her media profile up by being controversial.”

Alex is now engaged to personal trainer Nikki Menashe, who he shares his modest home with.
