Just when things were starting to look serious for Katie Price and yet another new man, her romance has been delivered a blow.
The model's good friend Amir Khan stunned followers on Twitter by posting a series of messages yesterday claiming that she had dumped her current squeeze Leandro Penna for Khan's best friend.
The boxer and Saj Mohamed, a member of his team, have filled their social networking feeds in recent days with posts about Miss Price, with Saj, 23, even claiming: 'Katie is and will always b the love of my life.'
Olympic boxer Khan, 24, wrote: 'Wow jus got a msg, y katie price broke up with her new bf, mr @saj23x cud be the cause of it, I think they both made for each other. (sic)'
But Katie, 32, hit back this morning, saying that she has only met Saj twice before and that there was no truth to his claims.
After issuing a denial on Twitter, Katie put on a display of unity with Leandro this morning.
The couple held hands tightly as she arrived, hair still in curlers, at BBC Radio 2 ahead of a day of promotion for her new reality series.
The day didn't get off to the best start with Price missing her first interview with BBC Breakfast after being stuck in traffic.
She earlier rubbished Amir's claims that his friend and the reality star had enjoyed liasons in London and that after a 'lengthy conversation,' would be making an announcement about their relationship.
Khan also claimed that Mohamed was shopping in a jewellery store for a gift for Katie - all of which now appears to be fantasy.
The whole saga kicked off last week when Mr Mohamed lashed out at Leandro Penna, 25, on Twitter.
Seemingly continuing a previous exchange on the social networking site, he wrote to the Argentinian model on March 15: 'What you did last night was wrong, First rule coming to england.... show some respect you little b****!
He added: 'I've never said a bad thing about him or to him.... and he insulted me for no apparent reason in his own language.. that really got me vexed!'
The following day, Saj appeared amused when the Daily Mirror printed his cross words, and, perhaps eager to live up to his newly raised profile, continued the Twitter rant.
