Katie Price's mum Amy has shared an open letter on her daughter's Instagram, addressing her exes who have spoken out following her crash and the press.

The model, 43, is currently seeking treatment in The Priory after she plead guilty to drink driving and driving whilst disqualified following a crash earlier this week.

Katie has stepped back from the limelight and her family previously shared a statement to share their concern over the star.

Now, in a new statement Katie's mother has addressed those who have spoken out on Katie following the crash and admitted she fears she could lose her daughter.

In the letter, which was posted to Katie's Instagram, 69 year old Amy wrote: "My Daughter Kate I am setting out my concerns as Kate's mother because I don't know how else to address the issues that have arisen on social media and in the press.

"I know better than most that Kate has made a career in which she has engaged with and benefitted from the press so I am not seeking to portray them as the bad guys and Kate as a victim.

"I am just asking that the press understand there may be consequences to their actions which I do not want them to then claim were not foreseeable.

"My daughter behaved appallingly when she got behind the wheel or a car intoxicated. She could have killed herself or someone else's child. I don't hide from that and neither does Kate."

She continued: "But Kate is not well. We asked as a family to have some space and privacy. Since our plea as a family there have been over 35 articles from various sources and interviews from ex-partners/husband all with an opinion."

Katie's ex Kris Boyson revealed he hopes the accident will be a "turning point" for the star after the accident on Saturday 2 October and Kieran Hayler is reportedly "furious" with the star.

Amy went on in the statement: "Many of these articles are complete fabrication (claims Kate has not been in touch with Harvey or is moving in with me for example).

"I understand what Kate has done will be reported upon – but just fabricating stories to sell newspapers?

"The press forget too quickly that their actions have consequences. If, as is my fear, we lose Kate then the narrative will change and people/media may remember all the good she did for causes in her early days and not be judged on her failures.

"How many more people do we need to lose in this world from mental abuse? It was not long ago I kept reading #bekind that seems to be a distant memory or media just think they can push the boundaries without responsibility."

Amy continued: "My daughter is mentally unwell, we have no idea what the future holds but what we do know is Kate's children will read and see every single article written. The abuse I am seeing on social media says so much for the society we live in – it has become a sad place.

"Please allow us time, allow my daughter space not because she deserves this but because I am asking as a very sick and poorly mother who is scared she will. Lose her daughter."
