BRITAIN’S best-selling author, Katie Price, is making preparations to divorce her toyboy lover Leandro Penna, Seleb Spy can exclusively reveal.
The animated sex doll is not yet married to the 25-year-old Argentinian hunk but has already instructed her lawyers to prepare for the inevitable divorce proceedings.
Publicity-shy Price, 32, was spotted with a ring on her engagement finger this week and is said to be desperate to wed Penna as soon as possible. However, she was horrified to learn it would be illegal for her to get re-married before she finalises her divorce from current husband, Alex Reid.
A source close to the glamour model claims she has also ordered her lawyers to attempt to find any legal loopholes permitting bigamy in cases where one partner needs to get re-married for an ITV2 reality show they have scheduled and hasn’t got time to get divorced from their current spouse.
“Apparently there is no legal precedent for that, so it could go to the High Court.” Our spy said.
Price took to social networking site Twitter, last week, to vent her frustration at the current anti-bigamy laws: “I just don’t see what the problem is with a bit of an overlap. I mean, I signed up to my new Vodaphone contract a few weeks before my old O2 contract was finished.
“How is marriage any different?”
In order to avoid enduring the same inconvenience when the time comes to divorce new beau Penna, Jordan is having her legal team fill in as much paperwork as they can now, with the aim of being able to finalise the divorce within six months after tying the knot.
The couple have been inseparable since meeting at Sir Elton John’s post-Oscar party in February this year, despite neither being able to speak the other’s language. Price has said she is keen to learn her lover’s native Spanish, and is currently studying the packaging of her Old El Paso Fajita Kit very carefully, and listening to Geri Halliwell’s Mi Chico Latino every day.
The model – whose last single Free to Love Again broke a UK record after staying at the top of the charts for nine consecutive weeks – was due to run the London Marathon, yesterday, in aid of her favourite charity, the Katie Price Foundation for Katie Price, however had to pull out at the last minute after doctors warned it could cause complications with her recent vaginal reconstructive surgery.
