Andre wasn't in marriage 'for the money'

Peter Andre doesn’t want any money from ex-wife Katie Price.

The ‘Behind Closed Doors’ singer – whose divorce from the glamour model will be finalised in six weeks – isn’t concerned about getting any cash from her, including the joint earnings they made when they were together.

A source close to Peter – who is legally entitled to half of the £12m they earned as a couple and a portion of his ex-wife’s £28m fortune – told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “Peter insisted that he and Kate signed a pre-nuptial agreement. It was simply because he never wanted to be accused of being in it for the money.

“And now they are divorced he is sticking to his word. Family, friends and love are the only things he has ever really cared about.”

Peter – who raises three children, Harvey, seven, Junior, four, and two-year-old Princess Tiaamii with Katie – is also furious with the 31-year-old beauty’s plans to have a party to celebrate their divorce.

He told a friend: “I am not about to celebrate something that has broken my heart. This marriage is not officially over for another six weeks and it is not something I’m happy about.

“The fact that she is throwing this party doesn’t surprise me in the slightest. It upsets me, though. I can only hope that she sees fit to do it when our three kids are not in the house as well.”
