Katie has rejected claims Harvey is in care (Picture: WENN)Katie Price has hit out at claims her son Harvey has been placed in residential care, leaving her ‘inconsolable.’
After speaking about her 16-year-old son who has Prader Willis syndrome, is partially sighted and has autism, Katie suggested there may come a time when Harvey will need to be placed into part-time care.
Now the mother-of-five, 40, has rejected claims Harvey was moved to a place an hours drive away, taking to Twitter to set the record straight.
‘Despite speculation led by New!magazine Harvey is not in full time residential care,’ the Pricey wrote on Tuesday.

It was claimed earlier today by New! magazine Katie’s eldest – she also has kids Junior, 13, Princess, 11, Jett, five, and Bunny, four – Harvey was now living an hour away, however it’s our understanding he is still attending school as usual.
A source claimed: ‘He’s about an hour’s drive from Katie’s house so it’s not just like he’s around the corner and that’s a big deal for her.
‘She’s massively emotional about it. She’s in pieces.’
Katie has previously blasted the idea Harvey will go into care, saying in a 2013 interview with the Guardian: ‘There are a lot of evil people out there. He’ll always live at home. He’s not leaving me.’
However, appearing on the Victoria Derbyshire Show earlier this year, the former glamour model said her son had been smashing up TVs, windows and iPads in the house.
‘He’s a danger to himself. For the first time ever, I’m thinking he might have to go [into] residential [care]. Monday to Friday,’ the 40-year-old explained.
‘Because he knows if he kicks off then the driver won’t take him to school, he’s sussed that out and he’s missing out on his education. He just wants to be with me all the time.’
Katie opened up about how ‘hard’ it is to care for him, as well as her other children.

‘I’ve never had respite, I haven’t got a carer with him, I do it all myself,’ she said. ‘But I’m really having to think about it.
‘I hate it, because he’s my life. Do you know what I mean? But I’ve got to do what’s best for him but it won’t be forever.’
