I was raped when younger, says Katie Price
Katie Price was raped more than once when she was younger, she said today.
The glamour model turned reality TV star, 31, made the revelations while denying allegations that her new boyfriend Alex Reid had been in a film glorifying rape.
In her OK! magazine column, Price - aka Jordan - said there had been a lot of "rubbish" written about the gangster movie.
Price said: "I was appalled by the headlines claiming he's taken part in something which glorifies rape. This is completely untrue.
"Rape is a subject very close to my own heart. I was raped when I was younger, more than once.
"Needless to say, I'd never be associated with anything or anyone so sick.
"I've never talked about this before, but I feel I have to now because I was so hurt by these accusations that I would not take a subject, which affects so many women, seriously."
She said Reid was also upset about the claims.
"Someone who was close to Alex was also raped and he is as horrified as I am by these claims.
"I urge any woman who has been affected by rape and needs help to talk to somebody they trust about it."
Price did not go into any more detail about what happened to her.
She said of Reid: "I'm so happy at the moment. Alex and me are really strong.
"There's been a lot of rubbish written about his new gangster movie, people saying it's porn.
"He's acting. He didn't have sex. He had his pants on."
In an interview with Piers Morgan previously, an emotional Price also mentioned that she had encountered "some weirdo in a park" as a child.
She said: "I'm not going to talk about it."
