Katie was criticised by fans for “exploiting” her disabled son last month after the reality star took him to meet at the Acapulco club in Halifax.

She admitted it was Harvey’s first time going to a nightclub as they charged £10 for a ticket to the meet and greet at the event, with Katie reportedly pumping in £6,000.

But people tweeted their concerns about Harvey’s well-being in the noisy environment, with some accusing Katie of “taking advantage” of her son by paying to appear.

One wrote: “Anyone else think it’s absurd that Katie Price takes Harvey to a nightclub?

Another commented: “Harvey will only go there because she’s not going to be booked herself. She’s taking advantage of him again.

A third said: “Why the hell did Katie Price take Harvey to a nightclub to meet and greet?”

A source also criticized Katie for being “irresponsible” for bringing Harvey, who has complex medical and behavioral conditions, to the nightclub.

sources told OK!Magazine: ‘shell [Katie] Had to sit on the edge of her seat all night because you just had no idea how he would react to loud noises, knocks on doors, lots of people, talking and lots of flashes and cameras.

Katie, who has made several appearances in Acapulco, reportedly made £6,000 for the event, which will be deposited into Harvey’s bank account.

a source told sun: “Katie usually charges more, but she agreed to show up for £6,000 because she was eager for Harvey to make her own money.

“When he grows up, it’s all going to go into his bank account.

“Meet and greet costs £10 so the club can easily pay for her – people will be waiting in line to greet them!”

MailOnline contacted Katie’s representatives at the time for comment.

Elsewhere, Katie was warned Wednesday that she faces jail after admitting to breaking a restraining order by calling ex-husband Kieran Heller’s fiancée a “gutter s**g”.

The mother-of-five was arrested on Jan. 21 for allegedly violating her restraining order against Michelle Penticost and sending a swear word to her ex.

The message reads: ‘Tell your c****ng w**** s*** girlfriend not to attack me.

“She has a restraining order so shouldn’t try to provoke me because she violated it, and I’m sure she doesn’t want people to know that she’s having an affair with you behind my back. That gutter fuck.

Katie, who joined current partner Carl Woods at Lewis Crown Court, was later charged with breaching the restraining order but pleaded not guilty on April 27 and requested a trial at Crown Court.

However, she pleaded guilty and was told by Judge Stephen Mooney that she had “the potential for an immediate jail sentence”.

It was previously suggested she could face up to five years in prison if she is found to have breached the order.

Katie’s attorney, Nicholas Hamblin, said the star should avoid jail time again because only the words “tell you” violated the restraining order.

“If it wasn’t for those two words in the message, this wouldn’t be a breach,” he said.

Katie, who was released on bail, will be sentenced on June 24 for breaching restrictions.

On June 3, 2019, she was issued a five-year restraining order preventing her from contacting Penticost directly or indirectly.

The order came after Katie hurled swear words “abusive” at her in a row on the school playground.

Her lawyer added: “In this case, there is a lot of background information that needs to be brought to the court, which is very telling.

“Most of this is in the therapist’s report and the court needs to update her current situation and what has taken up a lot of her and others’ time over the years.”

“You’ll notice she’s on probation.

“Part of my role is to try to convince the court that in this case it is not fair to initiate a suspended sentence because of the mitigations available.”

Katie was arrested at her home at about 5.45pm on January 21 and taken to Worthing Police Station after sending swear words to Kieran.

She was released after a 12-hour interrogation, but not before police seized her phone, which was examined for evidence.

She stood on the dock at Court One, accompanied by a female security guard, smiling as her fiancée sat behind her in the courtroom.

When asked how she defended a charge of breaching the order, the former glamour model replied: “Guilty.”

Defender Nicholas Hamblin told the court the case against her was based on the words “told you…” which constituted indirect information on Miss Penticoster.

As part of the mitigation, he said, he would provide a wealth of personal information about Price in court.

Judge Stephen Mooney told Price: “It is clear that you have accepted an offence and pleaded guilty and you know you have committed an offence while on probation and are at risk of going to jail.”

While the report is being drafted, she will be out on bail until sentencing next month, he said. But he warned her that she would be “at risk of immediate imprisonment” by then.
