Katie Price has taken a brutal swipe at her ex-boyfriend Dwight Yorke revealing how many times he has seen his son Harvey Price in 21 years.

The former glamour model, 45, and the football star, 52, dated for a brief period between 2000 and 2001, during which time Katie became pregnant with Harvey.

Her eldest child, now 21, was born with Prader-Willi Syndrome, autism, and septo-optic dysplasia, a condition that affects brain function, meaning he spends most of his time away from Katie in a boarding facility to receive special care.

Dwight initially denied the paternity of Harvey, demanding a DNA test that proved he was the infant’s father.

Since then, Katie has claimed he has only seen Harvey nine times since he was born but that she keeps the door open should he want to contact his son.

‘I think he’s seen Harvey about nine times in his life,’ she claimed during an interview on the Anything Goes podcast with James English.

‘I’ve tried to send him pictures of Harvey on Instagram, Harvey playing the piano, he just ignores everything – doesn’t want to know. But the door’s always open. Always.’

When asked why she remained so open to him sparking a relationship with Harvey despite his lack of interest, she explained: ‘I don’t know, because I’m like that. I’m like… Really I should say f**k off you a******e, you don’t deserve him, you’ve not been part of it.

‘I don’t know. I just think… if he saw Harv and saw how amazing he is, for him to be like f***ing hell, I haven’t seen my…. it’s his biological son.

‘Any man can make a baby but it takes a real man to be a dad in my eyes, but it’s still his biological son, and I suppose, to prove him wrong.’

She continued: ‘When he found out he was blind and all of this, he was like, “Oh, he’ll never play golf, he’ll never play football because of you”, and it’s not my fault, is it?’

Katie has always been open about her fight for Dwight to see Harvey, previously opening up on her heartbreak over the sports star declining to see his child every year on his birthday.

‘My mum still contacts his manager every year, and asks does he want to see Harvey for his birthday, and it’s always the same – no,’ she told The Guardian.

‘I just want Dwight to know what a gorgeous young man Harvey is,’ Katie explained. ‘Harvey has so much banter. He’s just a funny little b. You never know what’s going to come out of his mouth.’

Katie claimed that one of the last times she saw her ex was when she gave birth to Harvey.

Speaking on an episode of her podcast, the reality TV star slammed Dwight for being late to his son’s birth and refusing to cut the umbilical cord after he’d been delivered.

‘Dwight turned up at the last minute but he didn’t want to come in the room or cut the cord so dad did it, he cut the cord,’ she said.

In 2009, Dwight told Sky News his lack of involvement in Harvey’s life was the result of ‘a combination of different things’.

‘Not sitting here and saying I’m a totally perfect father, I’ve made mistakes along the way and I would love to turn the clock back,’ he continued.

He previously rejected Katie’s claims he abandoned their son and said: ‘I am not going to hear any more that I did not care for Harvey, or have any understanding of his needs or that I was not interested in his welfare.’

The star also has Junior, 18, and Princess, 16, with first husband Peter Andre, and Jett, 10, and Bunny, nine, with third ex-husband Kieran Hayler.

Metro.co.uk has contacted representatives for Dwight Yorke for comment.
