Katie Price's Best Friend's Husband Dismisses Affair Allegations
Kieran Hayler’s been called every name under the sun by his now estranged wife, but finally someone else in the love-square has broken their silence.
After Katie Price blasted Kieran for allegedly having an affair with her best friend for the last seven months and announced that the couple had split up, Kieran kept quiet on the situation, but now the husband of Miss Price’s best friend has played down the whole situation.
Businessman Derrick Pountney, 51, said that tears had been shed at his home during crisis talks over the feud between Katie, his wife of 11 years Jane, and Katie’s third husband Kieran, but insisted the row had been a "storm in a teacup".
Mr Pountney, who has two children with Jane, told the Daily Mirror: "We are good friends of Katie and Kieran’s and have been good friends of Katie for a good 20 years. A lot of this drama has been a storm in a teacup and there’s a lot of misunderstandings to sort out. Jane and Katie have had a good old chat here this afternoon. Will she and Kieran break up, or could they get back together? I don’t really know."
He continued: "As for Jane and I working things out... again, I don’t know. This ‘affair’ has not really happened like it has been portrayed. I’ve known about it for about four weeks myself. All four of us are good friends, but things between Kieran and Jane just went a bit far. There has not been a ‘full blown’ affair going on, it was more like a drunken kiss. There were tears shed here today, all sorts went on. But Katie and Jane talked, they have been friends a long time and they are OK now.
"I was at Katie’s house earlier today and brought Kieran round here. I see myself as the peacemaker of the group. Everyone is just about on speaking terms now. I hope they can work it out."
