It has been a tough year for Katie Price. First, her marriage hit a rough patch after husband Kieran Hayler, 30 was caught cheating with their children's nanny Nikki Brown. Just days later, Price was also devastated to find that her mother Amy was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and has only three years left to live.
The 39-year-old old has now confessed that she turned to anti-depressants during this difficult period in her life.
"I've been on medication since my mum was diagnosed. It's just been a lot to deal with. It's helping," Price admitted in an interview with Reveal magazine.
The Loose Women star had previously lashed out at Hayler, her third husband, after discovering his secret affair with 40-year-old Brown.
"He said they'd had sex a handful of times and then a handful became a year. It was always unprotected, because apparently that added to the thrill of it for him. I was absolutely gutted and I was crying and going mad, like a lunatic. I can remember shouting over and over that if I went off and hurt myself it would be his fault," Price told The Sun.
Following her marital problems and her mother's terminal illness, the model had earlier revealed that she was scared she would suffer a breakdown and had been consulting a doctor.
She said: "I feel like I am in shock and I don't know what I am doing, what I am feeling. This isn't a normal situation. To go through so much in such a short time is stressful."
Before this, Hayler, who has been diagnosed with sex addiction, had also had slept with two of Price's friends— Jane Poutney and Chrissy Thomas.
Despite his cheating ways, Price says that she still loves her husband. She admitted: "I still love him. The Kieran that I know, I love. The other Kieran is horrible. It's just so far away from the man I married.
"I can't believe he slept with those women. It proves he has an addiction. I know it's not me. He has an addiction because those women are disgusting.
"Kieran's such an amazing person. He's just got that side to him. But it's not fair on me. If I'm like, 'yeah, I'll forgive you, he'll do it again."
Hayler is a former stripper and shares two children with Price— son, Jett Riviera Hayler and daughter, Bunny Hayler.
