Peter Andre, who is of course currently at his brother Andrew’s side – Andrew is battling cancer of the kidneys – is reportedly worried about how his ex-wife Katie Price’s love life may affect their children.
As we reported recently, while Peter has been keeping vigil at Andrew’s bedside in a London hospital, he heard that a lawsuit that Katie lodged against him – and other former associates – earlier this year has been given leave to go to the High Court.
However, he’s not letting that affect the plans he’s made for Christmas with his kids, Princess and Junior, and as we also reported, he’s got a big treat in store for them when they spend time with him over the holidays.
But in the bumper December issue of Now magazine, friends of Pete’s say that he’s concerned about the press attention that Katie receives whenever she’s spotted out and about with a man…
His latest concerns are focused on Katie’s friendship with Gavin Henson – who of course starred in The Bachelor – with one pal of Pete’s saying, “He’s happy with Emily [MacDonagh] and has obviously got much more important things on his mind…
“But Katie knows how to push his buttons, even if she doesn’t mean to.
“She knows he has hang-ups about his looks and he hates her being public with guys because of the kids.”
The magazine adds, “Katie’s latest PDA is particularly poignant after Pete, 39, told Now last week that Junior, seven, and Princess, five, haven’t even seen him kiss his girlfriend of five months Emily.”
Of why his kids haven’t yet seen him being affectionate with Emily, Peter said, “There are ways to behave.”
However, a spokeswoman for Katie downplayed her night out with Gavin, saying, “She had a great night with friends – it turned into a long one.”

In the meantime, here’s a reminder of Peter and Katie in much happier times…
