Price sorry for Andre cheat claims

Peter Andre has accepted a public apology from ex-wife Katie Price over claims he had cheated on her and wasn't genuine in his feelings for her son Harvey.

The glamour model and reality TV star has also agreed to pay Peter undisclosed compensation, which he would pay into a trust fund for Harvey and make a contribution to his legal costs, solicitor Mike Brookes told Mr Justice Tugendhat.

Mysterious Girl singer Peter had brought defamation proceedings over interviews Katie gave to Heat magazine in October 2009 and on The Graham Norton Show the same month.

Neither Peter, who is in Australia after appearing in I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!, nor Katie were at London's High Court for the brief hearing.

Mr Brookes said: "Mr Andre brought these proceedings because his relationship with his children and his reputation are important to him, which Ms Price understands.

"Mr Andre and Ms Price are pleased that they have reached a compromise to the proceedings and they now wish to put this matter behind them in the interests of their children."

The couple, who divorced in October 2009, have a son and a daughter together - Junior and Princess Tiaamii - while Harvey is from a previous relationship of Katie's.

Her solicitor, Keith Ashby, told the judge: "I confirm what has been said by Mr Brookes, that Ms Price regrets making the comments she made and she is very happy to confirm - as she has said publicly before - that Mr Andre has been a good father to Harvey and has demonstrated his love for him on many occasions.

"Ms Price is pleased that she and Mr Andre have been able to put this litigation behind them in the interests of their children."
