Katie Price Furious Over Jokes About Her Disabled Son


Katie Price
The British star has consulted to her lawyers after comedian Frankie Boyle made jokes about his child Harvey Price who is blind and autistic.


British model-turned-reality TV star Katie Price has called in her lawyers after a comedian told a series of sick jokes about her disabled son. Scottish funnyman Frankie Boyle cracked several gags about eight-year-old Harvey during his "Tramadol Nights" show on U.K. network Channel 4.

Referring to Price's battle with her ex-husband, singer Peter Andre, for custody of the child, Boyle said, "Eventually one of them will lose and have to keep him." He also suggested Harvey - who is blind, autistic, and suffers from a condition that makes him gain weight easily - could be prone to attacking his mother.

Price was so disgusted by the remarks, she issued a statement blasting Boyle and is consulting her lawyer about the possibility of taking legal action. She tells Britain's Daily Mail, "Harvey Price is a little miracle. Every day he overcomes so many difficulties with the help of family and medical experts and has so many tiny battles to win due to his medical problems and autism. I love him and am deeply proud to be his mother. If Mr Boyle had a 10th of his courage and decency he would know that to suggest, let alone think funny, that Harvey may sexually attack me is vile and deeply unfair..."

"To bully this unbelievably brave child is despicable, to broadcast it on television is to show a complete and utter lack of judgment. I have asked my lawyers to write to Channel 4 on Harvey's behalf." A spokeswoman for Andre adds, "Peter is angry and very upset at Harvey being mocked in this way. Children, especially a disabled youngster, should be off-limits."

A Channel 4 spokesman says, "Frankie Boyle is one of the highest profile comedians in the UK; he's well known for his controversial humor and the program carried appropriate warnings as to the nature of the material. The joke aired in the context of a late night comedy show."

Harvey is Price's son from a previous relationship with footballer Dwight Yorke.
