While she insists that this week's split from Peter Andre was his idea, and that she is absolutely devastated, some sources suspect that the whole thing could be a tawdry publicity stunt cooked up by Katie Price herself.
She's got her fourth autobiography coming out soon, while he is about to release an album full of gut-wrenching ballads about losing the woman he loves.
Does sound like a Speidi-like publicity stunt, no?
About two weeks ago, the model formerly known as Jordan felt anxious, she confided, because she thought that she was simply not earning enough.
She had dyed her hair a plain brown because she said she was "fed up" with highlights, and cut down her longtime stylist's hours due to fiscal woes.
Having been in America for months, paying rent on a house in Malibu but not earning any money, the attention whore was starting to feel broke and forgotten. And nothing annoys an attention whore more than the threat of obscurity.
A source who spent time with Katie Price recalls ger grumbling about her "thunder thighs" and being even more bad tempered than usual with Peter.
It was then she started to talk about a "massive comeback."
Katie said she was going to reinvent herself in a spectacular way - which she did not specify - confiding that she was going on one of her juice-only detox diets.
These are the sort of actions to which the 30-year-old is prone, and few took notice, as she often talks about wanting to be the nation's biggest star again.
Now, of course, things look rather different.
The "shocking pictures" which are supposed to have ended the marriage are harmless. Peter was said to have lost his $h!t when he saw them, but Katie was merely "cuddling up" to international dressage rider Spencer Wilton - he is openly gay.
Wilton and Price are friends through their shared interest in riding and her commercial ventures with equestrian clothing. In fact, the two are so close that it's hard to credit that Andre did not recognize the "mystery hunk."
So if they have not split up thanks to those pics, have they truly split up at all? According to reports, the reality TV couple looked perfectly happy as they exited the trendy London restaurant Nobu on Saturday night, hand in hand.
And hadn't Katie been talking only last week about her plans to have a third child with Peter gladly concurring with the idea in his most recent magazine column?
