Katie Price was rushed to hospital in the early hours of Monday morning with an eye injury following a ‘serious’ altercation.
Police were called after the incident occurred at a property in Essex, who called for paramedics.
Essex Police confirmed that a man has been arrested on suspicion of assault and is currently being held in custody according to Daily Mail.
In a statement, Essex police said:
We were called by colleagues in the ambulance service to reports of an assault in Little Canfield, shortly after 1.30 am this morning, Monday 23 August. We arrived and found a woman who had sustained a facial injury that required hospital treatment. A 32-year-old man was arrested a short time later on suspicion of assault. He remains in custody.
In a further statement, Essex police added: ‘Our investigations are continuing at the scene today.’
According to Buzzupdate News, a source close to Katie said:
Katie is ok, but it’s quite a serious altercation that’s happened. She is currently working with the police.
Katie last posted on social media on Sunday when she shared an image taken by her fiancé Carl Woods, 32, that showed the pair posing with her youngest children Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven.
Katie also revealed the family had spent the weekend staying in Carl’s home as she shared a picture of Bunny cradling their pet dog, with the caption: ‘Excuse the mess we are doing Carl’s house up but how cute does bunny look with buddy.
The family time came moments before the couple took to Instagram to hit back at trolls who accused Carl of using Katie for her money.
After Carl shared the family snap, one user commented: ‘Thought you guys broke up?’, to which Carl responded, ‘never believe what you read mate’.
The former Love Island star wrote alongside a picture of himself by Katie’s hospital bed: ‘Support your women, Even when you don’t support her situation!’
Katie and Carl began dating in June 2020 and announced their engagement in April, just six weeks after Katie’s divorce from her third husband Kieran Hayler was finalised.
Speaking to OK! magazine about their engagement, Katie said: ‘It’s refreshing to be with a man that if I decided I never wanted to work again, he’d look after me, I just love him.
We’d spoken about it a lot, so I knew he was going to, I just didn’t know when. It was amazing. Carl asked my mum and dad for permission – and Junior. With Carl, Mum’s already told him not to mess me around and so far he’s passed the t****r test.
