Katie Price ‘hopes Harvey dies before her’ as doctors issue heart attack warning
Katie Price revealed she hopes son Harvey dies before her, after doctors issued a stark warning.
The 42-year-old was left fearing the worst earlier this week when her eldest son was rushed to hospital, after falling ill at daughter Princess’ birthday party.
He was discharged and is currently recovering at home.
Speaking about his condition, the mum-of-five said she was warned by health experts that he is at serious risk of dying from a heart attack if they don’t make changes.
And she confessed that she hopes the 18-year-old will ‘go’ before she dies, as he won’t be able to cope without her.
‘The doctors have told me he’s at high risk of having a heart attack,’ she told the Sun. ‘I know it’s horrible to say, but I wish he’d go before me because he wouldn’t cope without me.
‘He’d be so heartbroken and wouldn’t understand where I’d gone.’
Katie also confessed her worries over Harvey’s health as he ‘weighs 27-and-a-half stone’ and gets ‘out of breath’ from walking up the stairs.
‘I can’t see him living past 50 unless we sort his weight and his breathing out,’ she added. ‘We try everything but cutting down food is hard’
Harvey is blind and autistic, and has also been diagnosed with Prader-Willi syndrome – which affects his speech and movement.

Happy Birthday to my Harvey Price. What a journey the last 18 years have been. You’ve defied all the odds and proven that you will not let your disabilities stop you. They said you’d never be able to read, but you love reading to your younger brothers and sisters. Your talent has no boundaries with your artwork on public display at Gatwick airport, designed your own greeting cards for Anna Kennedy Online and raising funds for the NHS by designing your own T-shirt. You light up a room with your unique humour and you have everybody in stitches. You keep me entertained with your diverse taste in music and keyboard skills, from Beethoven to Queen. Harvey Price, you make me so proud every single day. Mum x
The teenager suffered from chest pains at Princess’ birthday party, and was rushed to hospital in an ambulance.
The Celebrity Big Brother winner later shared a video on YouTube, telling fans: ‘He kept complaining of chest pains. I said “how does it feel?” and he said “like needles”. Straight away, because of his complex needs, do I call the doctor or do I call the ambulance?
‘I don’t like it when people waste ambulances’ time. He’s at high risk because of coronavirus, he’s high risk because of his obesity and the steroids he’s on and his medical condition so I did call 999.’
Katie was reportedly supported by ex-husbands Kieran Hayler and Peter Andre over the ordeal.
‘Both Pete and Kieran messaged Katie afterwards, offering help and support,’ an insider told the Sun.
‘She’s on really good terms with them now and they were both Harvey’s stepdad once, and he’s their children’s brother.’
‘They were both relieved when Harvey was discharged and went home.’
