In September 2021, Katie was arrested for drink driving after flipping her uninsured BMW X5 on its side on a country road near her home in West Sussex.

She was given a 16-week suspended sentence and two-year ban at Crawley Magistrates’ Court.

After attending her court hearing, Katie told the camera: ‘I have decided to see a therapist every week for the rest of my life. Mental health is cruel, people don’t understand it, you can’t see it. I need help.’

Katie’s mum added: ‘Katie asked why she was still alive so I’m not sure if she tried to kill herself. It was a cry for help. As a mother it is devastating, you never want to see your child go through this.’

Lee, the man who found Katie in her overturned car, said: ‘Katie was hysterical, she told me she didn’t want to be here, I’ve had enough. I gave her a hug and reassured her.’

Katie then said: ‘The way I was, I didn’t care if I died. A police officer took a picture of my car and put it on Twitter.’

Fans took to Twitter on Monday to express concern for the OnlyFans star, asking others to ‘stop trolling’ as they don’t know what she’s going through.

One wrote: ‘Seeing all the hate towards Katie Price after she came out about her trauma after being raped makes me sick. people will never ever believe the woman no matter how hard we try. For some reason they still want the ‘perfect’ victim. And they wonder why the woman will not come forward’.

Another wrote: ‘Absolutely loved watching Katie Price trauma and me on Channel 4 it’s something I could relate to I feel for Katie people need to start being kinder to her she’s only human and a vulnerable person knows that.’

‘To all those trolling, honestly give your head a shake and think about the consequences of your words on the subject. You don’t have to write anything, said a third.

Katie revealed that she stayed at The Priory rehab clinic to treat her post-traumatic stress disorder, adding that through therapy she has learned to deal with her past and recognize what triggers her.

‘I’ve thought a lot about my mental health, I thought I’d have to deal with it on my own and after years of neglect I had a mental breakdown in 2018 and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.

‘I hit severe depression a few years ago, depression on top of PTSD, I was suicidal, didn’t want to be here. I tried to kill myself. I knocked myself out and had black eyes. I had bruises around my neck. I woke up. I didn’t want to be here’.

‘It also goes back a long way, I was raped in a park when I was seven.’

Katie’s mother told the camera: “She’s not a bad girl, she’s just been hurt too much and taken on too much and controlled too much.”

Katie took control of her life again when she started her OnlyFans account. During her press day, she said: ‘It’s about being comfortable in my skin, nobody can judge me, I can share what I want to share.

‘I get so much sh**t for so many things, so I think I’ll do what I want.’

The mother-of-five then went downhill again when she was arrested on January 21 on suspicion of breaching her restraining order against Michelle Pentecost – her ex Kieran Hayler’s fiancee.

‘I know I shouldn’t have sent the message I lashed out, I’m dealing with trauma, there’s no one in my life I want to destroy. The past is the past. It has caused the breakdown of the relationship I have with their father’

Katie's mother told the camera:

‘They should have their mother in their lives, it’s been seven months, it’s heartbreaking, I just wish it wasn’t like this.

‘When my head is like this and they are all playing with happy families, it hurts me. I have taken the first step to change by not reacting to it.’

Katie’s stepdad wept as he said: ‘I’m proud of her, I think she’s done fantastic. It all went downhill after the divorce with Pete, all she got was backlash, I think it’s hurtful, I’m not saying she’s an angel.’

Her mother, who was also crying, told the camera: ‘When she does these things you can see her face light up, I love spending quality time with her, we will all continue to support her.’

Katie has revealed she attempted suicide after suffering ‘anxiety, depression and major trauma’ following her horrific carjacking in 2018.

She admitted she hit rock bottom after she was gang-raped during the ordeal and tried to hang herself, but after she passed out ‘saw her children’s faces’ and realized she ‘never wanted that to happen again ‘.

During the documentary, which airs on Thursday, Katie revealed that she came close to taking her own life after hitting rock bottom.

She said: ‘I have anxiety, depression and major trauma and I tried to kill myself. I tried to hang myself. I knocked myself out. I had black eyes, bruises around my neck, I didn’t want to be here.

‘But all I saw were the children’s faces and I never want that to happen again.

‘It was a nightmare. I didn’t give a f**k if I lived or died. I have struggled with my mental health for some time.’

Speaking about starting OnlyFans, Katie said: 'I get so excited about so many things, so I think, damn it, I want to do what I want.'

Katie is mum to sons Harvey, 20, Junior, 17, and Jett, nine, and daughters Princess, 15, and Bunny, eight.

In the documentary, which was filmed in the aftermath of her car accident in September 2021, Katie also admitted that the accident finally helped her realize she needed help and she checked into rehab.

She said: ‘Getting into the car was a terrible mistake, I’m so sorry. It was a good example of me being triggered and not knowing how to deal with it, an example of me getting out of control because I needed help.’

After attending her court hearing, Katie told the camera: 'I have decided to see a therapist every week for the rest of my life.  Mental health is cruel, people don't understand it, you can't see it.  I need help.'
