The husband of the woman Katie Price accused of cheating with her husband has said the drama is no more than "a storm in a teacup".
The reality TV star announced on Twitter that she will split from her husband of a year and a half.
The star has been at the centre of a love triangle with Kieran Hayler and her best friend of 20 years Jane Pountney.
Yesterday she took to Twitter to claim her husband of a year and a half, with whom she had a child last November, had been cheating on her for seven months with her 49-year-old friend and bridesmaid.
She told her two millions followers that 27-year-old Hayler had been been having a ‘full blown sexual affair’ with Jane Pountney.
She told her fans: "Sorry to say me and Kieran are divorcing. Him and my best friend Jane Pountney been having a full blown sexual affair for seven months."
She branded her former friend who was bridesmaid to her for two weddings "a wh*re homewrecker sl*t".
However the 51-year-old businessman husband of Jane Pountney has denied his wife had a sexual affair with Price's husband, saying it was more of a drunken kiss.
'Now Katie has gone and put the whole thing for everyone to read about on Twitter, which she didn't really need to do, and a drunk kiss has turned into a full on affair," he said.
Derrick Pountney held a crisis meeting with Price, his wife and Hayler at his home yesterday. Price was pictured arriving separately to her husband Hayler at the home of her former friend.
Derrick Pountney was photographed seeing Katie Price to her car after the three hour show down. He told waiting reporters that the two former friends had 'A lot of this drama has been a storm in a teacup and there's a lot of misunderstandings to sort out.'
He told reporters he had known of the dalliance between his wife and Hayler for weeks:
"There has not been a "full blown" affair going on, it was more like a drunken kiss. All four of us are good friends, but things between Kieran and Jane just went a bit far."
