KATIE Price’s daughter Princess Andre revealed she has distanced herself from friends who were “nasty” towards her brother Harvey.
Princess, who is Katie’s eldest daughter with ex Peter Andre, said that she is extremely “protective” of the 19-year-old who has a range of medical conditions including Prader-Willi Syndrome, autism and being blind.
In an extract from her mum’s new book, Harvey and Me, OK! magazine reported that the 14-year-old shared in one chapter that she doesn’t understand why people feel the need to be “so nasty” towards him.
Princess said: “He’s actually so innocent and people don’t realise that.
“I don’t get why people feel the need to be so nasty towards him. Some of my friends have taken the mickey out of him in the past, but they’re not really my friends if they do that.”
The teen also admitted that it’s been difficult to watch her older brother endure online abuse in recent years and branded the trolls behind the vile commentary “cowards”.
She added: “Unfortunately, Harvey gets loads of hate online, which is horrible.
“People don’t say it to our faces, but they say stuff behind a computer screen. They wouldn’t dare say it to Harvey’s face. They’re cowards.”
Princess added that she’s become “really close” with her older brother and “wouldn’t change him for the world”.
Princess’ comments come after mum Katie admitted “I can breathe for the first time” after son Harvey went away to college.
The 43-year-old former glamour model’s eldest son has a range of medical conditions including Prader-Willi Syndrome, autism and being blind.
The 18-year-old lived with his mum and siblings until August this year, when he moved to a residential college in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
Having Harvey staying at the residential college means she has time to focus on her own well-being as well as those of her other children.
Katie has four other children to care for; son Junior, 16, daughter Princess, 14, son Jett, eight and youngest child, daughter Bunny, seven.
Katie Price: Harvey & Me is released on October 26.
