Peter Andre reaches out: Let me help you Katie
Our source says: 'Pete wants to reach out to Katie. He knows she's having a hard time and he's scared of what she'll do next.'
Katie, 34, has been hitting the town hard, boozing and flirting up a storm with everyone from 18-year-old X Factor contestant Dan Ferrari-Lane to Tottenham footballer Jake Livermore, 23, as her relationship with fiancé Leandro Penna, 26, began to fizzle out last month.
Now has learnt she's also been sending emotional late night messages to her pal - and serial love cheat - Spurs footballer Jermain Defoe, 30, begging him to set her up with a teammate.
And she was seen wearing skimpy ripped leggings and a low-cut top for a rare lunch meeting with her 10-year-old son Harvey's father Dwight Yorke, 41, at Manchester's Panacea restaurant.
Katie was also rushed to A&E three times last month after an infection plagued her following her fifth boob job.
She also ranted about being bisexual while on stage at a transvestite night Tranny Shack at Madame JoJo's in Soho last Wednesday.
'It seems she's just desperate to remind herself there are men out there who find her attractive,' says our source.A friend of Pete's says: Pete wants to step in to help Kate if he can. He hates seeing her in Jordan mode, discussing her sex life with strangers.
'He wishes he could talk to her, but he knows it'll end in tears. She's a law unto herself.'
