Katie Price has reportedly insisted she doesn't live a "lavish lifestyle" as she attended her bankruptcy hearing over Skype from her Maldives holiday with boyfriend Carl Woods.
The 42 year old, who recently said her Love Islander boyfriend is the "biggest she's ever had", is said to have appeared at the hearing at London's The Rolls Building to tell them that "90 per cent" of her trips are for business purposes and her current island getaway is a "work assignment".
According to The Sun, Katie is being probed over concerns she's splashing out money on expensive holidays and luxury goods instead of paying her debts.
While the former glamour model was declared bankrupt in November last year, she has enjoyed no less than six holidays to Thailand, Spain, France, Turkey and a cabin getaway with 31 year old Carl before heading off to the Maldives.
