Katie Price demands register of cyber bullies following trolling of her son

By Joe Nerssessian

Action needs to be taken, Katie has said.

Katie Price has called for the introduction of a national register of cyber bullies.

The former glamour model, whose eldest son Harvey has been the target of online abuse, started a petition demanding the Government take action over the trolls which has attracted more than 200,000 signatures.

Appearing on Loose Women on Tuesday alongside Harvey, Katie revealed three people had been arrested by police investigating abuse of the 14-year-old, who is partially blind, autistic and has Prader-Willi syndrome.

She said: “The police don’t know what to do with them.

“They don’t know how to punish them or a consequence.

“There are always a lot of people who have bullied people and stuff but when its really bad there should be action taken.

“And obviously nothing has been done.”

The petition demands the Government should introduce a data base of those found guilty of online bullying and Katie told the ITV show that being named on the list could affect people’s job prospects and make them think again before posting abusive messages.

Katie also addressed a backlash over an Instagram upload of her nine-year-old daughter posing in a bikini.

Katie joked that Princess, nine, had “learnt from the best”.

She said her daughter “doesn’t know what sexy is” and hit out at critics, adding: “Princess has seen me and Peter’s (Andre) pictures since she was four.

“Some people are saying they are too sexy.

“If I said to Princess, ‘Princess don’t pose like that it’s too sexy’, she would look at me and say ‘what do you mean?’

“Maybe they should question themselves saying why are they looking at her thinking she’s sexy.”
