Katie Price & Alex Reid in marriage breakdown?

The marriage of Katie Price and Alex Reid is said to be on the rocks, after only nine weeks! The pair tied the knot in Las Vegas in January but already cracks are beginning to show as Katie keeps calling Alex by her ex husband’s name and grows frustrated that he hasn’t yet knocked her up.

A source told The Sunday Mirror:

“It’s not so much cracks that are beginning to appear in their marriage – it’s more like gaping valleys.

“Katie’s the sort of girl who needs ­excitement in a relationship, but she’s showing signs of frustration and ­boredom.

“She thinks what she needs more than anything is another baby – she’s ­desperately broody and is telling people she’s at the stage where she might have to give up.

“She’s turning getting ­pregnant into a military operation – calling it the ‘Reidination Project’.

“But she thinks he’s falling short. She is even ­demanding he give up his career as a fighter to concentrate on building a family.

“She is blaming Alex, saying that he must have a low sperm count. He’s confident that he’s firing on all cylinders, but he’s not keen to have a sperm count test because he’s scared of how Katie would react if it came back low.

“She was expecting to fall pregnant before launching her Katie Price babywear range last week, but that date’s now passed, so she’s becoming frustrated to the point of putting their marriage in danger.

“They’re being urged to go to counselling sessions because Katie hates the thought of being twice-divorced.

“But they’re at each other’s throats day and night. They don’t have explosive rows, it’s more simmering contempt, sniping and little hurtful comments that eat away at their marriage.”

The source went on: “Alex is hurt that what is meant to be a loving, natural ­process is now all about ­fitting it in with her diary – it’s no more than a non-­emotional sh** in a boardroom, rather than a ­bedroom.

“He’s getting to see the real Katie and how she really ticks.”

Alex reportedly told friends that every time he fights with Katie, she calls him Pete.

One of them revealed: “He said if Katie calls him Pete one more time he’s going to start calling her by his exes’ names.

“Katie is always saying horrible things to him or stuff that hurts him.

“Alex said, ‘She’s bossy. I don’t know why she does that. She tries to reject me, then panics as I will walk’.”

Do it Alex, do it!!!! The divorce alone will be worth at least big magazine deal for you.
