Peter Andre discusses divorce
Peter Andre met with divorce lawyers yesterday (21.05.09) to discuss legal separating from Katie Price and getting access to his children
Peter Andre met with lawyers to discuss a divorce from Katie Price yesterday (21.05.09).
The singer's legal team reportedly advised him to request full custody of the children the couple raise together - son Junior, three, 23-month old daughter Princess Tiaamii and Katie's son Harvey, six, from a previous relationship - to ensure he ends up with at least shared custody.
Peter, 36, is set to meet estranged wife Katie today (22.05.09) - her 31st birthday - to discuss a possible divorce and custody arrangements.
A friend told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Kate's in for a real birthday shock when she arrives home and discovers Peter has already been to his lawyers to talk about divorcing her.
"There's really no turning back for him. It's all gone too far. He's not at all interested in seeing Kate to talk about the future. He is only concerned with seeing his children as soon as possible."
Katie arrived back in England with Princess and Junior yesterday, after flying to the Maldives shortly after the couple's split was announced last week.
Her security guard is quoted as saying: "She is devastated at what is happening but he knows if a divorce goes ahead Katie will fight tooth and nail for everything.
"He loves his kids and the idea he might have limited access is breaking his heart. There is a very large financial aspect for him to consider, but all he really cares about is the children."
Peter has been staying with his manager after he returned from seeing his family in Cyprus to find his belongings removed from his home and the alarm code changed.
