Katie files for divorce from Alex
Katie Price has taken the first step on the road to divorcing Alex Reid, by lodging a court petition.
The couple, who split earlier this year, were only married in February 2010, shortly after cagefighter Reid finished a stint on Celebrity Big Brother.
Price - 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 Price confirmed that a petition was filed on Thursday.
Reid will in time respond and then it will be dealt with by a judge, eventually leading to a decree nisi.
Price 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.
