Katie Price has appealed for help with her son Harvey’s exercise regime, revealing the teenager weighs over 28 stone.
The 41-year-old took to her Instagram stories to look for exercise options for Harvey, 18, during lockdown, as gyms are now closed for the rest of November.
Katie wrote: ‘Can anybody help I’m looking to rent a treadmill and rowing machine for Harvey that can take his weight 28 half stone and other gym bits as through lockdown I have to make sure he can exercise at home please help dm me [sic].’
At 28 and a half stone, Harvey is considered to be obese.
The teenager, Katie’s son with ex Dwight Yorke, suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome, a rare genetic condition that can impact muscle tone, sexual development and the function of the nervous system and can cause learning difficulties.
It also leads to a constant desire to eat food and a permanent feeling of hunger, which often leads to obesity.
Speaking about her son’s weight earlier this year, Katie told The Sun: ‘When Harvey went into hospital, I feared the worst. I always do.
‘The doctors have told me he’s at high risk of having a heart attack. He’s 27 and a half stone, wears 5XL clothes and he gets out of breath walking up the stairs. So of course I panicked.
‘I can’t see him living past 50 unless we sort out his weight and breathing.’
Harvey is also partially blind and autistic, and has been diagnosed with behavioural difficulties.
Back in July, the teen spent 10 days in intensive care after suffering chest pains and a high temperature, and Katie shared that doctors ‘discovered things’ about Harvey that they had not known before.
Katie – who is also mum to Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, with ex-husband Peter Andre and seven-year-old Jett and six-year-old Bunny with ex Kieran Hayler – has campaigned to have online abuse made a crime, after her eldest son was inundated with cruel messages on social media.
And the reality star last night called out a vile video posted on Twitter, in which a man in blackface impersonated a clip where Harvey swore on television.
She wrote on her Instagram stories: ‘I’ve been sent this disgusting racist mockery p*** taking about me and Harvey mocking his disabilities, clearly planned hence the face painting!
‘Does anybody know these disgusting humans as I will be reporting this to the police #harveyslaw words cannot describe how upset I am this is so cruel. These people need reporting.’
