Making front page news since an announcement that they are separating are Katie Price and Peter Andre. Having lived their relationship in the public eye will they now go through divorce in public too?
The newspapers have already highlighted the complicated legal issues which will have to be considered as a consequence of the split. Decisions will have to be made concerning a financial settlement, with newspapers estimating their joint fortune to be in the region of £50million. It is reported that Pete signed a prenuptial agreement prior to the marriage saying he didn’t want “anything from her other than love.” It will be interesting to see whether a prenuptial agreement was signed and whether the couple honour it in agreeing the financial split.
The other major issue will be how best to look after the children Harvey, six, Junior, three and Princess, one. Not an easy thing for any couple going through a break-up, but even more difficult I would imagine when you live your life in the public spotlight.
A tough time for the couple. Let’s hope the media will leave them to sort out their relationship in private – I do however doubt that will be the case.
