Katie Price thinks she would have been ''damaged'' if she hadn't ended her marriage to Alex Reid
Katie Price was "emotionally drained" after the break-up of her marriage to Alex Reid.
The 33-year-old star - who called time on the couple's relationship just 11 months after they tied the knot - admitted she "had no choice" but to give up on their union earlier this year, otherwise she would have become "damaged".
Katie - who was previously married to Peter Andre - said: "I find it really, really upsetting. I would not give up on a marriage without good reason. Pete ended our marriage and I would not have done that to someone else unless I had no choice.
"I had to get out of my marriage to Alex or I would have been damaged. I couldn't cope with it anymore. I was emotionally drained."
The former glamour model - who has three children, Harvey, nine, Junior, six and Princess, four, from previous relationships - thinks it was "fate" that she and Alex weren't able to have kids, despite her undergoing fertility treatment.
Katie - who is now dating Argentinean model Leandro Penna - explained to Britain's OK! magazine: "Alex and I were trying for a baby, but that was before he changed. I am very grateful for the children I have. It must have been fate, I was having IVF - it wasn't meant to be.
"But I am going to have more children. There's no rush, things will happen when they happen."
