Peter Andre celebrated the end of his marriage to Katie Price yesterday (22.10.09).
The 'Behind Closed Doors' singer hugged his brother Michael Andre and agent Claire Powell in Brighton, South East England, after receiving his decree absolute, the legal documentation which states his three-and-a-half year union to the glamour model is officially over.
He told the pair: "It's over. I've moved on. It's been hard but you guys have always been there for me. I've been hurt by this but I'm a stronger man now. I can cope with anything."
According to friends, the 36-year-old singer - who has two children, Junior, four, and two-year-old Princess Tiaamii with Katie, and has raised her son Harvey, seven, like his own child - is planning muted celebrations to mark the end of the relationship.
One pal said: "On one hand he's delighted, but the separation has been far from pain-free. Of course he'll celebrate, but he has a lot of thinking to do."
Peter - who pledged to remain celibate until his divorce was finalised - is now looking forward to dating other women.
Another friend revealed: "He's a hot-blooded man and the last few months have been difficult. But he's always wanted to do the right thing by Kate and the kids. And that meant not being on the market until things died down. Now that moment has finally come. Pete was always 100 per cent faithful during their marriage and even when the divorce was going through."
Katie, 31, marked the divorce by claiming their marriage often felt like nothing more than a "business" deal.
The brunette beauty - who is now dating cage-fighter Alex Reid - said: "For me and Pete it is a business, we know the entertainment business is a fake world, not a real world."
