KATIE Price’s boyfriend Carl Woods said he “doesn’t respect people that don’t respect him” as she takes an Instagram break.
The 42-year-old former glamour model has suffered a nightmare year, but has been leaning on new man Carl Woods for support.
However, as Katie takes a break from the spotlight to recover from her two broken feet, Carl has shared an Instagram post about “respect”.
He added the meme onto his Story, which read: “I don’t respect those who don’t respect me. You call it ego I call it respect.”
The Sun Online has approached Katie’s reps for comment.
Earlier this week, Katie called Carl her “rock” who has been there for him at her “lowest”.
She said: “I’m so happy I have the right people around me being in a situation feeling your lowest, I feel safe.
“@CarlJWoods is my Rock and couldn’t do this journey without him.”
The lower half of the picture read: “I have a bad habit of isolating when I am sad or depressed.
“Part of it is cause I don’t want to drain the happiness of those around me or burden them with my problems.
“Another part is cause my mental state is fragile and I don’t need anymore negativity to make me feel worse than I do.”
Katie recently said Carl, 31, is the only person who can “put her in her place”.
She explained: “I didn’t realise how badly I was treated until someone started treating me with respect.
This is why there is only one person who has finally put me in my place, I totally respect and can finally let me enjoy life how I’ve always wanted to be and share it with them.”
Katie continued: “I will NEVER put a step wrong and respect and love and changed my life by choice to finally have my happy ever after.”
The mum-of-five confirmed her new romance last month when she was spotted snogging the Love Island hunk as she left his home in Hertfordshire.
They then went on holiday to Turkey with her two children with ex-husband Peter Andre, 13-year-old Princess and 15-year-old Junior, but the trip ended in disaster when Katie broke both of her feet at a theme park.
The star has heaped praise on Carl for doting on her after the accident, with the hunk tending to her and carrying her in and out of cars and pushing her in a wheelchair.
The reality star has taken a break from social media after she ended up in hospital in “agony” – with doctors begging her to stay in bed and let her feet rest.
On Tuesday she stuck her feet in plaster casts out of a car window as she was being driven down a motorway, filming it on Instagram.
Now she’s decided to block all distractions and will take a break from social media and the pressures to post content for her fans.
A source told The Sun Online: “Doctors have told her she needs to rest in order to heal.
“She’s been living her life almost as normal and not taking it seriously, and now she’s found herself getting a talking-to by the doctor.
“She’s determined to get better now and is taking a two-week break from everything to focus on healing.”
Katie was rushed to hospital as medics fear she had suffered an infection after her operation, which they are now treating.
“She was in so much pain that she was in tears,” a source close to the model said.
Katie could be facing further surgery due to the injuries she suffered on holiday in Turkey last month.
She will remain in casts between three and six months before she can start her rehab.
The Sun revealed in July that the former glamour girl had been involved in a freak accident while on holiday in Turkey when jumping off a wall at a water park.
