Katie Price avoids bankruptcy after agreeing plan to pay off creditors
Katie Price has avoided bankruptcy after agreeing a plan to pay back what she owes.
A specialist insolvency and companies court in London was told on Tuesday that the former glamour model has agreed the plan with her creditors.
In October the 40-year-old, formerly known as Jordan, was given time to negotiate a deal with the taxman over her finances by a judge at a specialist insolvency and companies court.
The case was previously adjourned following a hearing in August to allow time for the consideration of an Individual Voluntary Agreement (IVA).
Lawyers representing her creditors told the court on Tuesday that her IVA proposal was accepted on 30 November.
An IVA is a formal agreement which lets people with debt repay their creditors at an affordable rate in a bid to avoid bankruptcy.
A representative for the reality TV star said after a hearing in August: “Katie is aware of the hearing and is working with her advisers to resolve her current financial issues.
“She hopes to be in a position to do so and reach agreement with her creditors.”
The former I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! star was once said to be worth more than £40m.
Katie Price rose to fame in the 90s as a glamour model making her debut on The Sun’s page 3.
She has had high-profile marriages including to pop star Peter Andre and former MMA fighter Alex Reid.
