An expletive-laden abusive message sent by Katie Price to her ex-husband Kieran Hayler was read out in court before the reality star was handed a community order.
Katie told Kieran: “Tell your c***ing wh*** piece of s*** girlfriend not to start on me – she has a restraining order so shouldn't try to antagonise as she is in breach.
“I am sure she doesn't want people knowing she was having an affair with you behind my back the gutter s**g.”

It was heard that the message may have been triggered by an Instagram post by Kieran's fiancee, Michelle Penticost, which she denies was aimed at Katie.
The court heard the offence was committed due to Katie's use of the words "tell your", which was an indirect attempt to communicate with Michelle.
This was in breach of a five-year restraining order, imposed in 2019, which banned Katie from contacting Michelle directly or indirectly.
Katie has now been given an 18-month community order to carry out 170 hours of unpaid work, with an additional 20 hours for breach of a suspended sentence for driving matters.
She was also ordered to pay £1,500 in costs.
In a victim impact statement read out at Lewes Crown Court, Michelle said that Katie's actions had a "devastating" effect on her mental wellbeing.
She said it had been upsetting and left her feeling threatened, intimidated and vulnerable.
"The language used made me feel scared. I felt it was an attack on me," she said. "The consequences are I feel she will attack me."
Katie had feared that she would face a custodial sentence, after Judge Stephen Mooney had warned her that this was a very real possibility.
