Katie Price’s family share plea for her privacy as they release statement on star’s mental health

Katie Price’s family have shared an impassioned post telling her followers they are “worried about her wellbeing” in the wake of reports of her car crash earlier Tuesday, September 28. 

The statement read: “This message has been written by Kate’s family.

“As a family, we have for some time been concerned about Kate’s wellbeing and overall mental health.

“Today, our worst fears nearly came true. As a family, we have been and will continue to help Kate get the help she needs.”

The public post continued to say that the 43 year old’s family hope she will now seek the “necessary treatment” to get the help she needs, and that they are looking forward to the star returning to the “mother, daughter and sister” they all know.

“We hope that she will realise that she cannot battle her issues alone,” the statement went on. “We would kindly ask that the media and wider public give Kate the time and space she needs to seek the necessary treatment, so that she can hopefully return to the Kate we know and love as a mother, daughter and sister.”

Katie’s family finished their statement by sharing more of their concerns for the star, and hope she will continue her “path privately moving forward”.

“We are concerned and worried about her deeply, we know she lives her life publicly and to many she is fair game, but as a family we hope she can find her path privately moving forward during this very difficult period in her life,” the family said.

“We are not asking for sympathy – just that it is recognised that Kate is unwell.

“We take great comfort in reading the messages of support and love for Kate that we will pass on to her, in the hope that these positive messages will help spur her on.

“It takes great strength for one to acknowledge they need help. We hope the door is now open for Kate to learn to love herself and to be happy within. Mental illness is not a personal failure. The Price Family xxx,” the statement added.

Katie’s fiance Carl Woods has since released his own statement, as he told his followers that “relationships are tested” but he loves her “100 per cent” and will “always be here” for her.
