It’s not unusual for Katie Price to let her hair down, but eagerly awaiting fans were left appalled when the former glamour model ‘disgraced’ herself at a meet-and-greet with on Saturday night in Bangor, Wales.
The 39-year-old appeared at the Cube nightclub over the weekend, with thousands of young fans turning up to meet their idol. Those in attendance were left unimpressed as the star turned up late for the paid appearance – a whole hour to be exact. She was reportedly set to arrive at 1am, but due to delays, had less than an hour to meet those who had paid to for the once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Aside from her late arrival, many fans claimed that she seemed to be ‘drunk’ due to her strange behaviour, while some even believed she was ‘on something’.
Katie was allegedly seen to be making strange poses in selfies and even took the opportunity to tell fans that she was expecting another baby. Whether this claim is true or not is yet to be revealed.
Taking hold of the microphone at the Welsh venue, she said: “Beautiful people, “Why aren’t you all cheering? Is it cos I’m pregnant?”. Realising what she had admitted to, she said that she was simply “joking”.
Fans paid £5 to attend the VIP event, however many admitted that the Loose Women star was completely ‘incoherent’ in her speech which made it difficult to understand what she was saying as she spoke to the crowd.
She later went on to invite audience members up on stage with her and even had the nerve to steal hats and glasses off those who asked for a selfie.
According to the Mirror Online, one fan in attendance named Liam Grey said: “I just couldn’t understand anything at all, it wasn’t a problem with the sound system”.
“There was people in a line next to her and I’m pretty sure she told them to snog each other because they did.
“She didn’t show up until about 2am. She was on the mic talking about something and I haven’t got a single clue what she was on about – it was just noise.”
Liam also admitted that she seemed to be loving the attention and took the opportunity to flaunt herself, by posing inappropriately and taking full advantage of her skimpy outfit which consisted of a tight-fitting crop top and knee-high boots.
“To put it bluntly, she was acting a bit slutty. She was acting like a model, flinging her hair around, posing and stuff,” he continued.
Another shocked fan named William Mansoor also commented on the star’s erratic behaviour, telling the newspaper: “Everyone there was talking about it at the time. When she was doing that game thing it was hard to understand what was going on – and it was uncomfortable to watch”.
Whilst on stage, Katie demanded that the DJ play her brand-new single, but the poor guy awkwardly had to confess that he didn’t have it on the playlist. Even the doorman claimed that he was ‘looking after’ the star in a serious of Instagram photos.
Another clubber at the event named Keziah Hanks told The Mirror Online that Katie had definitely been drinking, due to her bizarre mannerisms and failed to show an ounce of sympathy to fans who had been waiting all evening to meet her. He said that the star spent literally seconds with each fan, leaving many disappointed.
Once the event had finished, many of those in attendance were left outraged by the former glamour model’s unprofessional attitude, with many taking to social media to complain:
“I’m embarrassed for her, what a mess,” one angry fan wrote on Twitter.
“She looks so rough,” another commented.
After a short but sweet 50 minute appearance at the venue, Katie was picked up in a pink Range Rover.
This isn’t the first time the 39 year-old has disgraced herself in a club though. Back in 2016, she made an appearance at a venue in Derby and while under the influence of alcohol, became involved in a verbally abusive disagreement and later took off all of her clothes in the club’s loos.
She was reportedly paid a whopping £13,000 for the gig and felt the need to apologise for her inappropriate behaviour.
Katie angered many fans a few weeks back, as she was captured ignoring Holly Willoughby during her speech on behalf of This Morning at the National Television Awards.
Siting next to Loose Women co-panellists Nadia Sawalha and Saira Khan who were cheering for the rival daytime show, Katie was spotted looking slightly bored and decided to scroll through her phone just as the cameras zoomed onto her.
Taking to the microphone, Phil said: “We love getting up very very early even when it’s cold and dark so that we can work on a show that we’re so proud of. And I can work with someone who I absolutely adore.”
Holly then added: I’m lucky to work with not only one of my best friends, but as far as I’m concerned, the best team in the business. And… Bradley Walsh! What a devil!
“Bradley Walsh is our new doctor. He’s taking over sexual health, so if anyone’s got an issue, come and speak to Doctor Brad.”
Viewers of the NTA’s were quick to spot Katie’s rudeness and took to Twitter to comment:
Stop tweeting @KatiePrice and stop being so rude #NTAs,’ one viewer wrote on social media, and another added: ‘Katie Price get off your phone. There’s a time and place for it FFS. #NTAs’ one viewer wrote.
‘Welldone @thismorning well deserved winners @OfficialNTAs shame @KatiePrice wasn’t happy for them being on her phone,’ another wrote.
However, a supporter of Katie commented that she may have had a very good reason for her diverted attention: Maybe @KatiePrice was texting the kids night or the producers of loose women to give an idea, wish people would stop judging and presuming. #NTAs2018,’ they wrote.
