A week before Katie Price’s bankruptcy hearing,the reality star is thought to have spent £1,000 on a new puppy.
The model is undergoing her second bankruptcy hearing following a 12 week notice to try and fix her financial woes back in August but a source close to Katie has claimed that she has made the decision to shell out a grand to buy a new do, after she was devastated by the loss of her German shephard Queenie, who sadly passed away after being run over.
In February she took to Instagram to reveal the tragic news of Queenie’s death: ‘I’m absolutely devastated and heartbroken my faithful loving family dogs [sic] life Queenie has been shortened as she was killed by a heartless delivery driver who ran into our dog.’
‘Seeing her struggle and drove off without telling us and left her to die very disappointed a human being can be this heartless! Security cameras show this and we have reported to police! DEVASTAED is a understatement [sic].’
The insider told The Sun: ‘Katie’s last German shepherd was run over and killed by a takeaway driver and recently it’s been weighing heavy on her mind.
‘She sold off loads of her animals but she thinks a dog would help take her mind off everything going on in her life right now.’
They added: ‘A puppy would keep her busy and away from partying.’

The source also adds that the mother-of-five would like to find a new place to live, but is worried she will lose her West Sussex Mansion.
They add: ‘It is looking more and more likely as she has just weeks to come up with a plan to pay back her debtors…she has started looking for places to move into but it’s not easy considering she needs at least four bedrooms for all her children.’
‘But it’s dawned on her that she will need a lot of money to get the sort of house she wants, which she just doesn’t have at the moment.’
