Carl Wood and Katie Price have broken up and called off their engagement.
The 43-year-old glamour model and 33-year-old car salesman were planning to marry this year and had been trying for a child.
“Katie and Carl have chosen to part up,” several sources close to the pair revealed. It’s been a trying few months for them, and their ongoing court issues have just added to the pressure.
“For the time being, it appears to be over, and they are both quite sorry about it.” However, it would come as no surprise if they reconciled.”
Carl proposed to Katie in April of last year, only ten months after they began dating, and it was Katie’s seventh engagement.
After all photographs of Katie vanished from Carl’s Instagram account this week, many assumed the couple was on the rocks.
She then appeared on Instagram without her massive diamond ring, adding to the speculation.
Carl was accused of using threatening, abusive, or insulting words or behavior in a disagreement with Katie, and he appeared in court just days afterwards.
Carl will stand trial after pleading not guilty to using threatening and insulting language.
He arrived at Colchester Magistrates’ Court holding Katie’s hand, but afterwards posted a mysterious message alongside a photo of himself and his dog, saying: “This is what loyalty looks like.”
If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of six months in prison.
“On the evening of August 22, 2021, the defendant got into an argument with his partner at his home address,” prosecutor Leigh Hart told the court.
“As a result, his partner moved out of his house and into another.”
“The defendant pursued her and attempted to force open the door of that home, and was overheard by neighbors shouting outside in the street.”
Mark Davies, Carl’s lawyer, claimed in court that the incident was “nothing more than a squabble.”
Carl was released on bail without conditions.
The court date was set after the pair appeared to be in love while on a romantic vacation in Southeast Asia.
Carl was seen affectionately massaging her stomach as they sat by their complex’s swimming pool, sparking rumors she’s pregnant while they’ve been abroad.
Katie already has Harvey, 19, and Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with first husband Peter Andre, and Jett, 8, and Bunny, 7, with third husband Kieran Hayler.
Plans for a wedding and a baby
Katie disclosed her plans to expand her brood following her most recent time in rehab, saying she wanted a large family with the Essex auto dealer.
In a note to followers, she said: “I’ve found the courage to make a positive change in my life.
“With weekly treatment and a focus on my future with Carl Woods and getting married, I’m feeling much better.
“And having babies, and committing to returning to being a powerful woman.”
She revealed in January of last year that all she wanted for 2021 was a husband and a child with Carl, who she met on ITV’s Love Island in 2016.
“I don’t think I’m growing any younger…”
“As I get older, I do seem younger, but you know what I mean,” she told The Sun.
“It all occurred so quickly, but I’m confident Carl is the right man for me.” He’s The One, and I’m overjoyed – just look at me!
“We’ve been making an effort.”
She also disclosed that the wedding would take place this year in the United Kingdom, allowing her mother, Amy, to attend.
