Katie Price’s “ruthless” mum Amy Price interrogates her boyfriends to find out if they are “freeloaders”, she’s admitted.
The 42-year-old is currently dating Carl Woods but has been in relationships with “some terrible men” over the years, according to Amy.
“Kate’s got involved with some terrible men,” she told The Sunday Times Magazine.
“It’s the same pattern over and over. They all start off saying, ‘I love your daughter, I’ll look after her,’ then they live off her.
“Then there’s the hangers-on and the freeloaders. I spot them a mile off and I’ll call them out, but Kate’s got such a big heart and she’s so generous, she can’t see what they’re doing.”
The former glamour model was engaged to Warren Foreman in the 1990s before dating Dane Bowers.
She shares 18-year-old Harvey Price with estranged ex Dwight Yorke, who she dated between 2001 and 2002.
The star then went on to date the likes of Gareth Gates and Scott Sullivan before marrying Peter Andre – with whom she shares Princess, 13, and Junior, 15.
Katie admitted that she gets embarrassed by her mum’s need to interrogate.
“She’ll turn up at my house and say to the latest boyfriend: ‘Have you got a job? Or are you just going to ponce off my daughter?’” the star revealed.
“She is ruthless and it turns out she’s always right.”
Katie also dated Alex Reid, Danny Cipriani and Charles Drury, and got engaged to Kris Boyson in 2019 and Leandro Penna between 2011 and 2012.

The star was married to Kieran Hayler until recently and shares children Bunny and Jett with him.
Meanwhile, Katie and Carl have been inseparable since being snapped together over the summer, and have even spoken about starting a family.
The mum-of-five even recently revealed that she hopes to have four more children.
She told The Sun last month: “If I could, I’d definitely like another four kids. I might be able to, but my age isn’t helping.”
