Katie Price has finally addressed the infamous video of her rapping about ‘loving cocaine’, which surfaced following a wild weekend in Spain on a hen-do.
Now the former glamour model has addressed the footage, shot on a phone by someone at an after-party with the star, claiming that the headline that made the press was ‘most damaging’ of her career.
First addressing Melody, the friend whose hen-do Katie was attending in Majorca in late August, the mother-of-five apologised for her actions, before admitting she did use the drug in the wake of her split with Kieran Hayler.
‘We arrived in Spain on the Wednesday, I don’t remember what day we all went out. Some of us went to a party and I did a stupid video,’ Katie said.
‘I‘m such a knob when I drink anyway. And there I was rapping about doing coke, what an absolutely twit.’
‘Before I went to Priory, yes I was doing cocaine, I self-medicated and I got myself out of that rut,’ she added in a preview for her show, Katie Price My Crazy Life. ‘It hasn’t happened again since and it’s not going to happen.’
In the video that emerged from the Majorca hen-do, Katie, 40, links up with two men – known only as ‘Patrick and Lewis’ – and poses with the boys at their hotel room party, rapping about ‘loving coke’ because it ‘gets her in the air’, adding: ‘f*** my job in the media’.
She sang: ‘Made me do a line but I don’t care, I love the coke, you know, it gets me in the air.’
‘Yeah course I was aware there was coke there,’ she said. ‘Most parties people go to these today there’s coke. Doesn’t mean to say I have to do it…because I was in a bad way everything tumbled out of control.’
Katie admitted the headline that accompanied the video when it was made public was the ‘most damaging headline, most damaging bit of press’ she’s had in her 25 years in the spotlight.
She claimed she’d ‘never been associated with drugs’, before taking the illicit substance amid her split with third husband Kieran, with whom she shares two children, Jett, four, and Bunny, three.
