TODAY KATHY Price faces up to five years in prison for sending a “dirty sex” message to her ex-husband’s new fiancée Kieran Hayler.
The reality TV star, 43, violated an injunction after sharing a “vile and nasty” message against Michelle Penticost in January.
A concerned Katie was warned that she would face a maximum sentence of five years in prison today after pleading guilty to violating a restraining order.
Price was prohibited from directly or indirectly contacting Michelle under a five-year restraining order issued in June 2019.
She was also fined £415 for swearing at Michelle during an argument on the school playground.
Earlier this week, Katie, 44, was spotted watching her sister Sophie marry her partner Harry Brooks along with her family and friends.
She was joined by her children Harvey, 20, Junior, 17, Princess, 14, Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven, and her mum Amy, 64.
The media personality is said to have begged her little sister to move her big day forward in case she was jailed.
In January, she sent ex-husband Kieran Hayler a message calling his new partner Michelle Penticost a “dirty slut.”
Price last month pleaded guilty to the charge in Lewis Crown Court, turning around sharply after previously denying it in Magistrates’ Court.
Cathy was chosen to sit in the Crown Court, which would have meant a tougher sentence and trial by jury, when she appeared before Crowley Magistrates’ Court in April.
Judge Steven Mooney told her, “You obviously took responsibility for the offense and pleaded guilty while you were on probation, which means you risk going to jail.
“I will need to know the relevant parts of the background in order to decide what the appropriate sentence should be.
Everything you need to know about Katie Price
“Don’t be under any illusions, you risk getting an immediate prison sentence.”
The reality TV star spent 12 hours in police custody after she was arrested in January at her dingy mansion over text messages.
Kathy texted Kieran, “Tell your fucking bastard piece of shit girlfriend not to start with me,” before calling her “gutter shit.”
She faces a maximum of five years in prison when she returns for sentencing, as she was already on 16 weeks of probation.
Cathy has also been charged with speeding her BMW on a 60 mph road and will stand trial for that offense in a separate hearing in July.
This happened just 11 days before she flipped the engine while drunk on September 28, causing it to be completely destroyed.
She had already been banned from driving when she got behind the wheel after taking cocaine, drinking vodka and lemonade.
The judge convicted her because she believed she was “above the law” but could not send her to prison due to a loophole in the law.

The judge also said Price, who had six driving convictions, had “one of the worst driving records I’ve ever seen.”

A source told Kristen Bell Tattoos: “Kathy is telling everyone she’s going on vacation, not jail! She buys her holiday wardrobe.
