KATIE Price’s ex-husband Kieran Hayler is to be quizzed over historic rape allegations after the model made a claim to police in relation to another woman.
Ex-stripper Kieran has voluntarily agreed to answer detectives’ questions over three alleged incidents with a woman who was known to the couple while they were still married in 2016.
Kieran, 34, is said to have immediately agreed to be interviewed, saying he was happy to co-operate and clear his name.
وقال مصدر: “Police have been in touch with Kieran regarding an allegation from 2016, which is believed to have been made by كاتي.
“It relates to someone they knew while they were married. Kieran is co-operating and insists he has done nothing wrong — but he’s happy to speak to the cops about it. He just wants to move on from his marriage to Katie.”
Sussex Police said: “We are investigating a report that in 2016 a woman was raped by an adult male known to her at a location in West Sussex.
“No arrest has been made. The woman is receiving support from specially trained officers.”
Kieran became Katie’s third husband in 2013 and they had two children together — Jett, ثمانية, and Bunny, سبعة.

But it was a turbulent romance and despite renewing their wedding vows three times, they split in 2018. Their divorce was finalised last year.
Last night a spokesman for Kieran said: “Kieran is very saddened by these false allegations, and is happy to fully assist the police and co-operate fully to ensure he is quickly vindicated.
“But he is keen not to get into a public dispute and would prefer to rectify this matter with the police as quickly and calmly as possible, and continue to focus on his own life and future.”
Troubled Katie, 43, got a suspended jail sentence last month for a drink-driving offence while already disqualified from the roads — her sixth ban.
A judge gave her a further two-year ban and warned that she would have been jailed except for a legal technicality — after she attended a rehab course at The Priory.
Katie has promised to change her ways and reform her behaviour as a result of the incident.
