Fans of Katie Price might be surprised to learn the star has reportedly splashed out on a brand new Ferrari – despite being banned from driving and, as has been highly publicised, reportedly bankrupt.
The 43-year-old mum-of-five is said to have spent £179,000 on a new car – which is in her favourite colour of bright pink.
Last year, Katie crashed her BMW while drunk near her home in West Sussex – leading to a high-profile court case in which she plead guilty to drink-driving and while banned and uninsured.
She was subsequently given a 16-week suspended sentence, with a condition of unpaid work, and a two-year driving ban – however that has not seemingly stopped her from finding a brand new dream car.
According to The Sun, Katie has bought a bright pink Ferrari and will be raring to get behind the wheel once her ban is lifted.
A source told the publication: “Katie’s getting a pink Ferrari – it’s worth £179k and she sees it as a gift to herself after everything she’s been through. She can’t wait to get her driving licence back.”
They added: “Katie’s planning to pay for the car in instalments now she’s back to earning money again after the bankruptcy.”
