Glamour model Katie Price rang a live TV chat show this morning (16.09.09) to defend herself against claims she made up her rape allegations to get attention
Katie Price phoned a live TV programme this morning (16.09.09) to say she will never name the "famous celebrity" who raped her.
The 31-year-old glamour model called British chat show 'The Wright Stuff' after watching the panel discuss her decision to reveal she was sexually assaulted by a well-known star.
Katie - known as Jordan - expressed her outrage at claims she had fabricated the story as a publicity stunt, insisting she only made the crime public to defend her cage fighter boyfriend Alex Reid, who was accused of simulating rape in a new violent film. Speaking to show host Matthew Wright, she said: "I haven't just come out and said I got raped, I was actually sticking up for Alex. It came out in the newspapers that he was doing this rape thing and I stuck up for him in my OK! magazine column.
"I would never do something like that for sympathy. It has all got out of context and I think it is really out of order to say I would do it for sympathy. I would never do that and I will never name the person that did it. That's not for me to do. I am the victim here."
Katie - who is awaiting her divorce from Peter Andre to be finalised - also blasted the media for blowing her confession "out of proportion".
She said: "I am absolutely livid. I have mentioned it in my column, then I did a shoot with the kids and the press have gone on and on about it. I am absolutely livid - they dig and dig and dig.
"I don't make a joke about it - it is a serious matter. I woke up this morning and it's over the front of the newspapers."
But Katie denied she would go to the police, claiming that discussing the attack would be too upsetting.
She explained: "It happened absolutely years ago and like anyone, it's just a hard thing to do. It's been done now, what do you do? I would say if something happens you should go to the police."
