Katie Price: Dwight Yorke hasn’t seen our son Harvey for a year
Katie Price has criticised ex-boyfriend footballer Dwight Yorke for abandoning their son Harvey.
Katie, also known as glamour model Jordan, dated briefly in 2001 but their fling ended before Harvey was born in May 2002. As the boy grew up, he was found to be blind and suffering from septo-optic dysplasia, which causes growth issues and mental problems as well as the visual impairment, causing the boy to need around-the-clock care.
Katie told OK magazine recently that Dwight has “no understanding of his son”: “He’s always come and gone. He wouldn’t see him very often. He should be ashamed. [He] hasn’t seen Harvey for a year.
“I think the last card he sent just said: ‘To Harvey, Dwight.’ Probably the last time he sent him a present it was more suited to [her three year old son] Junior than Harvey.
“He occasionally texts my mum and asks how Harvey is. When I’m away I phone Harvey because you can talk to him, but Dwight never picks up the phone. He’s got no idea.
“I know Dwight’s got another child now and he’s focused on that one. I’ve always said to Dwight he can take him for a visit if he learned about Harvey’s medications.
“Our nanny could have taken him to visit Dwight but nothing.”
But, she added, it’s Dwight’s loss, not her’s or Harvey’s: “I couldn’t give two s**ts [about him]. Harvey has me, Pete, my family and Pete’s family - he has lots of love.
“Pete’s his dad at the end of the day.”
Katie has two further children - son Junior and 18 month old daughter Princess Tiáamii - with husband Peter Andre.
