Businesswoman and glamour model Katie Price is currently in Los Angeles with her entourage of beauticians and hairdressers following an escape bid by her second husband, Alex Reid.
I can reveal that Alex broke free of his custom-built cage style playpen at Price's Sussex home and made a run for it last weekend.
Reid made his way to his showbiz pal Vinnie Jones' Hollywood home but was turned away. Vinnie Jones said, "Some geezer calling himself Alex or Rocky or somethin' came round ringing me intercom wanting to hide out here. I told him I'd never bloody heard of him and to **** off 'cause I was watching Grease on me Betamax."
Katie located cross-dressing Alex's precise location within minutes of arriving in LA thanks to a tracking chip she had had injected into him with his steroids.
A dazed eyewitness said, "She cornered Alex near some bins on Mulholland Drive, and got what looked like a remote control out of her fake fur coat. She pointed it at Alex and he started cowering immediately, saying over and over "What Katie wants Katie gets". She then grabbed him by the ear and lead him away into her pink limo."
In a statement Katie Price said, "I can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that Alex tried to run away from me, and he did manage to get quite far, but he has learned now never to underestimate me. Hopefully this won't happen again, I had him reprogrammed while I topped up my Botox and he should be in full working order for Elton John's Oscars party this weekend, where I am scheduled to have a cat-fight with Vicky Beckham. You will be able to read about it in my new autobiography I'm Not Posh, out next week in all good supermarkets."
Earlier in the month I reported how Alex was created for Price by her plastic surgeon, a fact she was forced to admit after he broke down on The Johnny Wossy Show.
Her plastic surgeon, Dr. F. Stein, said, "We are having a few teething problems with the Artificial Intelligence Experimental unit, or Alex as he is commonly known. Thankfully this incident happened near where I am based in California, so I was able to turn him round in time for Kate's big fight."
