Katie Price has been branded "cruel" by jilted lover Alex Reid's mother.
Carol Reid launched the attack on the glamour model after she publicly dumped the cage-fighter on British TV, hours after quitting reality show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here'.
Alex had flown over to Australia, where the show is filmed, in order to propose to the star.
Carol said: "I watched the TV and it seemed very cruel the way she spoke about Alex. He really loved her and gave up a lot for her, and this is how he gets treated by her.
"I can't get through to him at the moment. All I know is that he is in Australia and his phone is off. He must be upset. I'm worried for him."
Alex, 34, is said to have been spotted sobbing over the couple's split in
Katie - who started dating Alex seven months ago in the wake of her messy divorce from singer Peter Andre - seemingly made her decision after Alex revealed his marriage proposal plans to a newspaper at the weeken.
The pair are set to meet again for showdown talks, although not until a film crew for Katie's UK reality TV show, 'What Katie Did Next', can be flown into Australia.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "The crew have been told to get out there as quickly as possible as there is going to be fireworks
"Katie's not stupid and wants massive ratings for her show."
