Price and Andre granted divorce

Reality TV stars Katie Price and Peter Andre have been granted a divorce at London's High Court.

District Judge Bradley pronounced the decrees nisi - marking the penultimate stage of the divorce proceedings.

It was revealed the pair had both applied for a divorce on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour.

Andre's lawyers had asked that the divorce papers be kept confidential, but dropped the request when informed which documents would be released.

These included a copy of the marriage certificate, answers to set questions by the court about the former couple's petitions for divorce, and the judge's certificate granting a decree nisi.

Price, 31, who models under the name Jordan, and singer Andre, 36, chose to divorce each other, with neither party accepting blame for the split.

They filed cross decrees under Price K v Andrea PJ - Andre's real name.

Their separation was announced in May, but neither side gave a reason for the break-up. Since then, Price has claimed it was her husband's decision to leave her.

Press attention

The tabloid favourites met on the reality TV show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in 2004 and married a year later.

They have two children together, four-year-old son Junior and daughter Princess Tiaamii, two.

Price also has a son, Harvey, aged seven, with footballer Dwight Yorke.

In July, Price was interviewed by former newspaper editor Piers Morgan and claimed Andre had left her shortly after she suffered a miscarriage.

She has since released her latest book and Andre has re-launched his pop career, with a single called Behind Closed Doors, inspired by his relationship with Price.

They have also starred in separate ITV2 reality shows, documenting their lives since the split.
