Katie Price has announced she will be ‘taking a break’ from social media following the tragic death of her friend Caroline Flack.
The My Crazy Life star admits she is still completely devastated by the loss of Caroline, who died by suicide at the age of 40 on Saturday (15 February).
Amid calls for a crackdown on social media trolls, Katie stated she will be stepping back from social media platforms temporarily.
The 41-year-old shared a message in her Instagram stories on Monday evening, which said: ‘I’ve decided to take a break from this horrible media world.’
Referring to Caroline’s death, she continued: ‘I’m absolutely heart broken..
‘I’m having a dramatic change in my life for the better. I don’t want to have to read or see anything in the press about me, my family & friends or my exes.
‘This has all got to stop! I’ll be back when I’m ready.’
After news of Caroline’s death broke over the weekend, Katie revealed she had been due to see the former Love Island presenter in the coming weeks.
‘Devastated shocked we were only messaging not long ago to meet up as she wanted me my support RIP [sic].’
Katie has endured a challenging 12 months after being declared bankrupt in December and splitting from boyfriend Kris Boyson. There were reports that she faced homelessness and would have to move out of her West Sussex mansion, but Katie denied this.
Last week, the former glamour model revealed her beloved dog Sparkle had been hit and killed in a road accident.
Tributes for Caroline have poured in the past few days, with Atomic Kitten singer Kerry Katona sharing private messages in which the late presenter reached out for help in dealing with social media trolls.
During an interview on Sky News, Kerry broke down in tears and stated Caroline’s death ‘can’t be in vain’.
Love Island aired a tribute to Caroline when it returned to screens on Monday evening after two nights off-air, and featured a poignant narration from Iain Stirling remembering his friend fondly.
