Katie Price has revealed she feels anxious when she goes out with her children because some people “think they can use and abuse you”.
The mum-of-five, 45, opened up on her podcast The Katie Price Show, saying that she had some nerves during a recent trip to Brighton with her children.
The star said she was with Jett, nine, Bunny, eight, Princess, 16, and 21-year-old son Harvey, who has multiple disabilities, including partial blindness, autism and Prader-Willi syndrome, which can cause extreme appetite and weight gain.
She said: "I get really nervous at the minute when I go out, because I know people stare. It just sometimes gets me a bit, 'On no, what's going to happen?'
"So I'm with Harvey and there's all lager louts and people just grab Harvey and he weren't in the best mood because he had to walk.
"I don't know what it is but some people just think they can use and abuse you, like ‘Give us a picture, do this, this that.’
“Harvey wasn’t in the best mood and ‘Alright Harv’ and they touch him and he’s like, ‘No thank you’.”
The star added that "people should have some respect".
Some fans then posted message on social media saying they were pestered because Price’s children were in the public eye.
However, others defended the star, who is also mum to 18-year-old son Junior.
"People need to learn some decorum and educate themselves, just because someone is in the public eye it doesn’t make them a zoo animal," said one.
"Celebrities deserve lives too," said another.
Price had Harvey with her ex Dwight Yorke.
She shares Princess and Junior with her ex Peter Andre, and Jett and Bunny with her former flame Kieran Hayler.
