Katie Price is facing her third court case of the year
Katie Price is due to appear in court for the third time this year after an alleged playground row with Kieran Hayler’s girlfriend.
The former model is said to have confronted Michelle Penticost at the school where she works as a teacher, allegedly asking her: ‘Are you enjoying f***ing my husband?’
Price, 40, is facing two charges of using threatening and abusive words or behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.
She had come face-to-face with Ms Penticost in front of shocked parents as she picked up Jett, 5, and Bunny, 4, her two children with Mr Hayler.
The alleged offence took place in the West Sussex village of Shipley on September 6 last year.
Sussex Police confirmed in a statement at the time that there had been a verbal altercation outside a primary school.
Price was criticised by a judge last week after she failed to attend a hearing at Crawley Magistrates’ Court as she was away on holiday with current boyfriend Kris Boyson.
District Judge Amanda Kelly adjourned the case until Wednesday after saying Price had shown ‘a lack of respect for the whole court system’.
In a brief hearing, the judge said Price and her solicitor seemingly had ‘something more important’ happening than to turn up to the court case.

The judge said it would be ‘tempting’ to consider issuing an arrest warrant but she decided not to as the penalty for the offence was a fine.
However a source close to Price said she was ‘unaware’ of today’s hearing but was ‘fully prepared’ for next week’s date.
The court was also told that Price had failed to turn up to a police interview in relation to the matter.
It is the third court case Price, who lives in Dial Post near Horsham, has faced this year.
The former glamour model has previously appeared in court this year over two separate driving offences – being drunk in charge of a vehicle and driving while disqualified and without insurance.

Price was criticised on February 25 when she laughed off a three-month driving ban after she was found slumped in a ‘very’ drunken state in the back of her vomit-covered pink Range Rover which police saw collide with a grass verge.
She was almost twice the legal limit after drinking four pornstar martinis when she was arrested in the early hours last October in Greenwich, South East London.
The TV personality was cleared of drink driving after claiming the driver was her boyfriend’s friend.
in January, she was banned from getting behind the wheel for three months after she admitted driving while disqualified and without insurance.
She was also fined £1,100 after being spotted driving on the A24 near her West Sussex home on July 25 while a six-month driving ban was still in place.
