Katie files for divorce from Alex
Katie Price has taken the first step on the road to divorcing Alex Reid, by lodging a petition with the court.
The couple, who split earlier this year, were only married in February 2010, shortly after cagefighter Alex finished a stint on Celebrity Big Brother.
Katie - aka Jordan - has since spent time with an Argentinian model, Leandro Penna, whom she met at an Oscars party in Los Angeles last month.
A spokesman for Katie confirmed that a petition was filed yesterday (March 10).
Alex will in time respond and then it will be dealt with by a judge, eventually leading to a decree nisi.
Katie was previously married to singer Peter Andre with whom she has two children.
The 32-year-old mother of three has brought her new friend back to the UK after meeting him at Sir Elton John's Oscars party. She has posted pictures of herself with the 25-year-old on Twitter.
