Ulrika Jonsson calls Katie Price a 'bad mum' after claims she hardly gets to see her kids

Ulrika Jonsson has slammed Katie Price as a 'bad mum' after recently complained she rarely sees her two youngest children.

Katie, 44, revealed she had been cut out of her two kids, Jett, 9, and Bunny, 8, who she shares with ex-husband Kieran Hayler after their relationship deteriorated. The former glamour model claimed "recent events" meant she has "limited access" to her kids, which is a claim Kieran has strenuously denied.

Writing in her column for The Sun , Ulrika savaged Katie for sharing her “heartbreak” over not seeing her kids due to her constant holidays. The former Gladiators star and mother-of-four wrote: "[Katie] Price says kids need their mum. No, Katie. Kids don’t need their mum or their dad. They need a good mum and a good dad."

“What really matters is the quality of the parent. A bad mum or dad is likely to do more damage than good. Many children spend much of their time reaching out for parents who simply never offer dependability and stability, and this is deeply damaging."

She then delivered a damning blow to Katie, concluding: "Who knows the truth behind the Price-Hayler story. But gripes about limited access sound a little strange coming from a mum who heads off on seemingly endless holidays."

Mum-of-five Katie made the admission in her new documentary for Channel 4 called ‘ Katie Price: Trauma And Me’ which is set to air on September 8. In a preview clip, she said: “The hardest thing I’ve had to deal with in recent months is having limited access to some of my kids.”

“Recent events have meant I’m seeing my youngest children less and the relationship between me and their father has broken down.

“It’s not good for my mental health and it’s certainly not good for their mental health. They should be having their mum in their life. At the moment I’m stuck in this rut with Jett and Bunny and it is frustrating for me.

“You know, seven months, how has it even got to this? It’s heart-breaking and I just wish it wasn’t like this. All I can do is hope that this won’t be forever.”

A representative for Kieran Hayler has denied Katie’s claims saying: "This is categorically untrue. Kieran's focus remains on the children's best interest and in maintaining the children's best interests and safety at all times,” they told The Sun.

“Miss Price's version of events are never accurately portrayed. It is a shame the producers of the program did not feel it appropriate to balance the claims by interviewing the fathers who have first-hand kept the children in a loving, caring and stable environment.”
