Katie Price considered hiring prostitute for teenage disabled son Harvey

Katie Price's husband Kieran Hayler suggested that they should hire a prostitute for her son Harvey.

Katie Price has thought about hiring a prostitute for her 15-year-old disabled son Harvey.

The 39-year-old's teenage son suffers from severe autism, septo-optic dysplasia and Prader-Willi syndrome. And to help her son progress through the journey of puberty, Katie has thought about potentially employing a sex worker to take his virginity.

"My son's 15 and he has autism and he’s going through puberty and its natural to experiment then," Katie said on Wednesday's (12Jul17) episode of Loose Women.

"Kieran (Hayler, Katie's husband) has joked that we should get him a prostitute... And I have thought about it, I don’t know what to do, I don’t know if that’s what I want to."

Katie's admission comes after she revealed in 2016 that Harvey had a girlfriend - a young girl called Tia who attends the same south London school as her son.

And during an interview with OK! Magazine, Katie detailed the mostly platonic relationship between Harvey and Tia, who have been together "for a few years".

"They're so cute together," she said. "She bought him some aftershave and body lotion for his birthday. I don't think they kiss or anything like that, but I think they sit next to each other at school."

Katie isn't the first star to have considered hiring a prostitute for a disabled child. Author Kathy Lette, who was a guest on today’s Loose Women, recently penned a piece for the Mail on Sunday newspaper where she admitted that she had thought about hiring a call girl to help her own autistic son become sexually mature, writing: "Not one, but two of the mothers I’ve befriended through the National Autistic Society suggested that we take our sons to a brothel... But even the temporary solace of sex might do something for his flagging confidence. Is soliciting a prostitute a seriously abnormal thing to do? Yes. But mothering a child with autism tends to recalibrate one’s view of normal."

Kathy continued in her piece to tell readers that her son had shortly afterwards met "a beautiful young woman who appreciated his wit and warmth and individualism".
