Katie Price is learning to deal with her past thanks to the support from her boyfriend Carl Woods, a source reveals.

The 42-year-old opened up about being raped in a park at the age of seven on a recent podcast, and having lewd photos taken by a photographer when she was just 12 – insisting men were “the thing that’s always been wrong in my life”.

But sources have revealed that with Carl – who she started dating in July last year – she feels she finally has the trust and support she craves.

“Carl is a great partner for Katie because he knows when to put her in her place,” new magazine's source says. “He won’t let her sabotage their romance with insecurity or by pushing him away. He knows she has trust issues with men from her past, but he’s determined that she sees he’s honest and loyal. If she ever doubts him, he’ll go above and beyond to prove it. He wants her to know she has full transparency with him.

“Katie hinted at things from her past in the early days of dating Carl, but lockdown has been really cathartic for them both and she’s felt able to open up to him like never before and share painful things she went through.

"He’s never judged her and, if anything, he’s encouraged her to deal with things head on and work through her trauma. She knows she can lean on him.”


Speaking to Annie MacManus on her podcast, Changes, Katie – who is a mum to Harvey, 18, from her relationship with Dwight Yorke, Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, with first husband Peter Andre and Jett, seven, and Bunny, six, with third husband Kieran Hayler – opened up about dealing with her past trauma during a stint in The Priory last year and admitted many of her issues stem from her biological father walking out on the family when she was a child.

“I was too young to remember but subconsciously it’s there,” she said. “So they worked out the reason why I jumped in and out of relationships. It’s wanting that father figure because they’ve always let me down.”

Katie first discussed being assaulted as a child in her autobiography Being Jordan in 2004 and has since spoken extensively about struggling to trust men, revealing last year: “I still speak to a doctor from The Priory because of my past. It’s to help me realise that not everybody is going to cheat and not everybody is going to lie to me. I find it really hard to trust any guy.”

But sources say Carl, 32, is willing to go to great lengths to prove he is trustworthy and has offered Katie access to his phone and social media to demonstrate that he won’t betray her.

“Carl will happily give Katie his phone and let her look through it and she has the passwords to all his accounts.

"He knows this isn’t ideal, but he hopes that in time she’ll realise he really has nothing to hide. He wants to be with her forever and raise a family together and wants to prove that she’s found the right man at last.”
