Katie Price and Alex Reid's split has finally been confirmed, after weeks of speculation.
Price released an official statement, announcing that the pair had gone their separate ways after 11 months of marriage.
The release revealed that the former glamour model was "deeply upset" that her relationship with cage fighter Reid had failed.
"Alex and I have had a number of difficulties over the past few months. I accept that these were in part caused by my marrying too quickly - we all make mistakes and this was one.
"I am deeply upset that my relationship with Alex has failed but I know it is the right thing for my children and I that we separate."
Thirty-two-year-old Price cited Reid's behaviour as one of the reasons for the split, as he became "fascinated by life in the media eye".
"Alex changed from the man I fell in love with and some of his behaviour became difficult for me to understand and caused issues.
"I have tried to help him with these issues but they have put a considerable strain on our relationship."
The mother of three also took the opportunity to clear up some of the reports that have been published in the media over the past few days:
"It is true that I have asked Alex to leave the family home and that he will not do so.
"I would like to make clear that the allegations that I have been dragging out any announcement so that my film crew can capture on film Alexs upset are complete fabrication."
Reid and Price started dating in July 2009, just eight weeks after Katie split from ex-husband, Peter Andre.
The pair married in February 2010 in Las Vegas.
