At 10.50 this morning, Can Associates sent out an emergency statement to all national media outlets.

The statement confirmed that Andre had met with Daily Star journalists yesterday. But it insisted that Andre had not revealed the reasons for his split with wife Katie Price, aka Jordan - as claimed in the paper.

The statement also said that Andre did not call Price ‘a drunken slapper'.

The statement, seen by PRWeek, read: ‘Yesterday Peter Andre went into the Daily Star offices to do a piece for their playlist section of the newspaper.  Whilst he was there it was arranged that he would do an interview with the newspaper at noon today to run in tomorrow's paper. 

‘We must make it clear that whilst Peter Andre was at the Daily Star offices he did not call Katie Price a drunken slapper nor did he reveal the reasons why he left her.'

Can Associates is headed up by Claire Powell and Neville Henricks. The firm also represents supermodel Rachel Hunter.
