Katie Price confronts Molly Mae as she throws fake tan line weeks before bankruptcy hearing
KATIE Price is set to take on Molly-Mae as she launches a fake tan line weeks before her bankruptcy hearing.
The former glamorous model and mother of five teased her exciting new “money spinner” project on social media this week.
Katie, 43, is set to expand her empire with a self-tan line that allows fans to get her “designer tan on the cheap”.
A source exclusively told The Sun Online: âThis is her last source of money as she makes her comeback – a line of self-tanners.
“It’s no secret that Katie loves to sunbathe and that she even had a recliner in her house at one point, but it’s a fan’s way to sunbathe for no cost!”
“She’s always moaned that the stoves didn’t offer enough dark or enough blanket, so she pulls out hers,” the insider added.
They teased the new product, “She’ll never give up on vacations or lounge chairs, but that way fans can get her trademark tan on the cheap.”
Katie will join a long list of celebrities who already have their own tan lineup, including Molly-Mae, Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner.
Love Island star turned businesswoman Molly-Mae, 22, launched Filter in 2019, with products stocked by clothing site Pretty Little Thing.
Her success saw her signing as the creative director of the fast fashion company early last month on a lucrative seven-figure deal.
Katie’s tanning line will be added to her long list of start-ups, including eyelash collections, equestrian kits and children’s clothing.
The media star launched a line of beauty products, Scented By Katie Price, in March, selling bath bombs, candles and relaxing sprays.
This precedes Katie’s bankruptcy hearings next month, where she will return to court to discuss her massive Â£ 3.2million debt to creditors.
After declaring bankruptcy in 2019, the courts refused to release her due to non-reimbursement of losses.
Katie was supposed to pay back Â£ 12,000 a month to her creditors after taking out an Individual Voluntary Agreement (IVA) – but failed to do so.
Officials will now review his attempts to pay off heavy debts to creditors two years after going bankrupt at the next hearing.
She has seen her once-lucrative Â£ 45million media empire crumble after her third marriage to Kieran Hayler fell in 2018.
Her bankruptcy was extended in November 2020, which gave her more time to collect the money she owed.
Katie is now under pressure to pay off the Â£ 3.2million debt after failing to attend meetings and address repayment of losses.
A source told The Sun: âKatie has to come back next month – the debt is huge and it’s unlikely that she will be able to pay it off.
“She hopes the court understands why progress is slow.”
THE ARRESTED KATIE ATTACK
The court hearing comes amid a difficult month for the mother of five, after she was reportedly punched in the face at her home in Essex last month.
While his attacker was arrested on suspicion of assault – the man has since been bailed out by Essex Police until the end of the week.
A source told The Sun: âPolice have asked for more time to find out exactly what happened.
“Investigators will continue to examine the night in question with various forms of evidence to establish what happened before deciding whether or not to charge the man in question.”
The star was pictured with a bruised face and cut lip after being punched in the attack, as she told The Sun she had to go “to the hospital”.
“I’m still stunned. I’m devastated. I told the police I was assaulted and I’m in shock that it happened,” Katie said.
âI ran away after being punched – I ran to Harvey’s house nearby and now have damaged my feet, which I had already injured. I can not say more.
