Katie Price 'heartbroken' as son Harvey is set to spend first night at college three hours away

Just days after she was assaulted at her own home, Katie Price is facing more heartbreak as she prepares to see her eldest son Harvey off for his first night in residential college.

Katie, 43, has gone through a rigorous process of whittling down schools for Harvey, 19, who was born with Prader-Willi syndrome, septo-optic dysplasia and has autism.

They settled on a college three hours away, with Harvey set to live there most of the time.

A source told The Sun: ‘Katie’s heartbroken but knows that Harvey will have a brilliant time at his new college. He’s going for his first overnight stay this week to get used to things and being away from home.’

The residential college is said to be costing £350,000, although fees are eligible for government funding.

Katie has also said to The Sun of the changes: ‘It’s so upsetting to think I won’t see him every day but this is the best thing for Harvey and we have to think positively because I don’t want him to think I’m just getting rid of him.

‘When he’s three hours away it will break my heart because I won’t be able to get there as I’ve got to juggle him with my other kids.’

This comes after police were called to the TV personality’s home at around 1.30am on Monday, where a man was arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour.

Katie is not dropping her assault case after being taken to hospital following the incident at her Essex home.

Although it was previously reported that she ‘cannot face’ the prospect of a court appearance, a source close to the star said friends and family have rallied around her to ensure she has the strength to pursue a conviction. 

An insider told MailOnline: ‘It’s not true that she is dropping the case, but she is very scared and and is feeling emotionally vulnerable.

‘All her friends and family are behind her and will make sure she has the strength to pursue the case, so she is going full steam ahead.’

Following the assault, a man, 32, was released on bail after he was arrested for assault and coercive control over the attack. 

Despite the support of her loved ones, Katie still ‘doesn’t feel safe’, and has been beefing up the security at her home – where she is not currently staying – in the wake of her attack.

On Tuesday, the day after the assault, Katie was pictured with bruises to her face and told The Sun: ‘I’m still all dazed. I’m devastated. 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.’ 

Katie said she was attacked as she watched TV – forcing her to flee in terror to her eldest son’s nearby home.  

She said the alleged assault was ‘unprovoked’, adding: ‘I was just sitting there watching telly when the assault happened.’

An Essex Police spokesman said on Tuesday: ‘A 32-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour has been released on bail until September 20.’ 

Neighbours said they heard ‘loads of shouting and screaming’ on the night the model was rushed to hospital.

One neighbour told MailOnline: ‘There was something kicking off because I heard loads of shouting and screaming. It was definitely going off.

‘It was anti social and sounded like a load of p***heads coming back from the pub. There was a real kerfuffle.

‘Then I saw a car parked across the road for ages. Around half an hour after that I heard loads of talking.

‘I came downstairs to see what was going, but I don’t know what time it was because I didn’t have my phone with me. I didn’t see or hear any cops. I didn’t see any blue lights.’

Another said: ‘We heard an argument at about 11pm. I didn’t hear anything at 1.30am when the police were supposed to have been called because I was asleep.

‘I know that Katie Price had been living next door. I don’t think I had heard any big arguments before last night.’ 

Katie last posted on social media on Sunday when she shared an image taken by her fiancé Carl Woods that showed the pair posing with her youngest children Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven.

The image was captioned: ‘Family time’ with a heart.

Katie also revealed the family had spent the some time staying in Carl’s home as she shared a picture of Bunny cradling their pet dog, with the caption: ‘Excuse the mess we are doing Carl’s house up but how cute does bunny look with buddy ❤️’.

The family time came moments before the couple took to Instagram to hit back at trolls who accused Carl of using Katie for her money.

After Carl shared the family snap, one user commented: ‘Thought you guys broke up?’, to which Carl responded, ‘never believe what you read mate’.

As another user then penned: ‘he only wants her muni wen shes clearly broke shes got no muni [sic], Carl fired back, ‘Andy knows I got enough doe. So don’t worry about me. Guys known me for 20years’, he added, ‘mate. This world full of mugs. You know me mate.’

Katie then jumped in to defend her partner, writing: ‘ what you on about? @carljwoods pays and has his own money you d**k’.
