Reality TV couple Katie Price and Peter Andre are divorcing after four and a half years of marriage.
The British glamour model, also known as Jordan, and the Aussie singer confirmed the news on Monday (11May09).
A statement from the couple's management company reads: "Peter Andre and Katie Price are separating after four and a half years of marriage.
They have both requested that the media respect their families privacy at this difficult time."
The pair, who met on the U.K. reality TV show Im A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, tied the knot in 2005 in an extravagant wedding at Highclere Castle in Hampshire, England.
They are parents to son Junior, three, and daughter Princess Tiaamii, one. Price also as a son, Harvey, from her previous relationship with soccer star Dwight Yorke.
The shock announcement of their break up came just hours after Britain's The Sun newspaper pictured Price cosying up to a mystery man during a drunken night out at the Syndicate club in Bristol, England - without Andre.
And news of the split ends months of speculation regarding the state of their marriage, which has been documented in their reality TV show Katie & Peter: Stateside.
