Katie Price will likely be ‘traumatised’ and ‘need therapy’ following an alleged assault that saw her taken to hospital.

The star’s friend Danielle Lloyd has shared her support for the My Crazy Life star, but shared her worries it will take a lot for her to process her trauma.

Katie was rushed to hospital last week after police were called to her home in Essex at around 1:30am on August 23 following an incident involving alleged assault, coercive control, and theft.

Speaking about her friend’s ordeal, Danielle told Closer magazine: ‘It was totally heart-breaking to hear about Katie’s ordeal. I texted her as soon as I heard, but I don’t think she has her phone.

‘It really struck me, because I love Katie, if it’s true that she was assaulted I expect she’ll be totally traumatised and would need therapy.’

Katie – who is mother to Harvey, 19, Junior, 16, Princess, 14, Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven – recently revealed she’s ‘in shock’ as she opened up after police were called to her home and a man was arrested.She said: ‘I’ve got a big bruise, my face is all puffy, and I went to hospital. I’m still all dazed. I’m devastated. I’ve told police that I was assaulted, and am in shock that this happened.

‘I ran away after being punched — I ran to Harvey’s house nearby and have now done damage to my feet, which I previously injured.

‘The fight was unprovoked — I was just sitting there watching telly when the assault happened. I can’t say any more.’

The man arrested in connection with the alleged incident has been released on bail and is awaiting trial, as friends reached out to Katie in the wake of the news.

Kerry Katona wrote in her latest New column, via OK!: ‘What happened to Katie Price is devastating and I want to send her lots of love. The thought of anyone laying a hand on her – whether it’s a man or woman – makes me so sad.’

She went on: ‘Katie has always been there for me when I’ve been in a difficult situation and she knows I’m here for her now, and I’ve reached out to her.

‘Everyone is rallying around her and supporting her.’

A spokesperson for Essex Police previously told Metro.co.uk at the time of the alleged incident: ‘We were called by colleagues in the ambulance service to reports of an assault in Little Canfield, shortly after 1.30am this morning, Monday 23 August.

‘We arrived and found a woman had sustained a facial injury which required hospital treatment.

‘A 32-year-old man was arrested a short time later on suspicion of assault. He remains in custody.’
