Katie Price’s son Harvey is in hospital with a painful condition.
Just weeks ago the 21-year-old – who suffers from Prader-Willi Syndrome, autism and was born with septo-optic dysplasia, a condition that affects brain function – was rushed to hospital for a problem with his ear.
Now, he is in hospital again with the same issue. As well as his ear problem, the ex-glamour model Katie revealed her son has also cracked his head open again.
In August, Harvey smashed his head through her car window on the way home from a family trip to Devon. Katie, 45, revealed Harvey had become distressed when his ears popped on the motorway.
Glass shattered everywhere, and the kids’ faces looked like a ‘murder scene’ according to Katie, who had to act quickly to calm the situation and get them off the road.
Currently in hospital again, Harvey desperately wants to come home, according to the Mucky Mansion star, who seems to be missing her son.
‘I’m going to go and see Harvey today. He’s not well with his ear,’ Katie revealed on her The Katie Price Show podcast to her younger sister Sophie Price in the latest episode.
When Sophie expressed her sympathy, and noted this ear problem had been going on for a while, Katie continued: ‘It’s so bad now, and he cracked his head open again.
‘He’s got hospital on Monday so I’m going to go and see him, because he’s like, “Mummy can you come and see me,” and then when I see him today he’ll say, “Can you take me home?”‘ shared the mum-of-five.
‘So in a week when I’m back, I will bring him home for a few days,’ she explained.
On a previous podcast episode, in which Katie opened up about the ear condition, the worried mum said: ‘They’ve syringed his ear out at the hospital again yesterday. He’s calling me going [crying] “mum” and all that.
‘Last night when he went to bed they put a bandage around his head to stop him doing that with his ear. So he’s phoning me feeling sorry for himself.’
She continued: ‘All he wants to do is stay in a hotel and I know why, because he wants all the room service. But his behaviour is so bad at the moment and his ear doesn’t help. Like I can bring him home but he will smash everything.’
Katie made the ‘heartbreaking’ decision to put Harvey into full time care back in 2021 when he turned 18 until he is ‘at least 25’.
‘It’s so upsetting to think I won’t see him every day but this is the best thing for Harvey and we have to think positively because I don’t want him to think I’m just getting rid of him,’ she told The Sun at the time.
‘I need to learn to let go but it’s tough – anyone in my position knows how hard it is,’ she added.
This comes after Peter Andre – father of Katie’s two children Princess, 16, and Junior, 18 – revealed he and partner Emily MacDonagh announced they are expecting a child together.
As well as her eldest Harvey – whose dad is football coach Dwight Yorke – Katie shares Jett, 9, and Bunny 8, who she shares with dancer Kieran Hayler.
