Michelle Penticost, who is engaged to Katie Price’s ex-husband, Kieran Hayler, felt ‘scared to go out’ after the former glamour model, 44, sent her ‘vile’ text messages calling her a ‘gutter slag’
Katie Price’s ‘vile’ text message to her ex-husband’s fiancée left Michelle Penticost feeling ‘threatened and scared’ to go out.
The former glamour model, 44, arrived at Lewes Crown Court for sentencing today, alongside her fiancé , Carl Woods, after pleading guilty to breaching a five-year restraining order against her ex-husband Kieran’s fiancée, by calling her a ‘gutter slag’.
The mum-of-five has been handed an 18-month community order at Lewes Crown Court to carry out 170 hours of unpaid work after admitting breaching the restraining order by sending abusive messages.
Katie was first slapped with the five-year restraining order which forbids her from contacting her ex-husband’s partner, directly or indirectly, after she admitted to using abusive language in 2019 towards Michelle, 39, at the school gates.
In January this year, Katie messaged Kieran, 34, accusing him and Michelle of conducting an ‘affair.. behind my back’ while they were still together.
In the messages, Katie labelled Michelle as a ‘c***ing whore piece of s*** ‘ and a ‘gutter slag’.
During court proceedings today, a victim impact statement read to the court stated that Michelle Penticost said the impact of the restraining order breach by Katie Price had a ‘devastating effect’ on her mental wellbeing.
She said: “The impact of what Katie has done is very upsetting, I feel threatened and intimidated.
“I feel demoralised and not wanting to go out. The language used made me feel scared. I felt it was an attack on me.
“The consequences are I feel she will attack me. I felt by having a restraining order it would make me feel safe but by someone breaching it it has made me feel very vulnerable.”
Judge Stephen Mooney told Price: “In my judgement, this offence was committed out of anger.
“The words you used were highly offensive and inflammatory so the breach cannot be considered minor.
“In my judgement, balancing the aggravating and mitigating factors, the appropriate sentence is a medium-level community order.”
Price showed no emotion as the verdict was announced but gave a brief smile as she left the dock.
Before she departed into the court on Friday morning, Katie launched into a foul-mouthed tirade.
The reality TV star was heard to say ‘suck my d***’ as she made her way past reporters, one of whom asked her about the chance she could go to prison.
Katie was dressed in a striking green dress for the hearing and clutching a straw-look bag, with a pair of large tinted sunglasses covering her face.
After making her guilty plea in March, Katie was warned by Judge Stephen Mooney at Lewes Crown Court that she was ‘at risk of going to prison’.
