KATIE Price’s furious ex husband Kieran Hayler has been forced to take legal action against her after she compared him to Jimmy Savile.
The model, 43, made the shock comments after watching the new Netflix documentary about the evil paedophile, prompting Kieran’s legal team to send her a warning to remove it straight away.
A rep for Katie's ex told The Sun: "Kieran Hayler is seeking legal action in regards to the social media post made by Katie Price.
"For a woman that profusely professes to advocate mental health and anti trolling this is again somewhat contrary to 'the values' Miss Price claims to champion."
A source told us: "Kieran sent Katie and her team a legal letter telling her to take the posts down as soon as they saw them.
“It's horrifying for Kieran and his family.”

They added: “She's taken it too far – Kieran is furious and has told her to stop right away – or face the consequences."
In the upsetting posts, Katie told her followers: “Omg, I watched this and can’t believe what this man did and brought back memories.”
The mum-of-three then shared an article from earlier this year stating that Kieran was set to be quizzed by police over historic rape allegations after she made a claim to the police.
She made a further claim as she captioned the article: “Who is going to fix this?"

The Sun told in January how ex-stripper Kieran had voluntarily agreed to answer detectives’ questions over three alleged incidents with a woman who was known to the couple while they were still married in 2016.
Kieran, 34, is said to have immediately agreed to be interviewed, saying he was happy to co-operate and clear his name.
Sussex Police said: “We are investigating a report that in 2016 a woman was raped by an adult male known to her at a location in West Sussex.
“No arrest has been made. The woman is receiving support from specially trained officers.”

Kieran became Katie’s third husband in 2013 and they had two children together — Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven.
But it was a turbulent romance and despite renewing their wedding vows three times, they split in 2018. Their divorce was finalised last year.
A spokesman for Kieran said of the claims at the time: “Kieran is very saddened by these false allegations, and is happy to fully assist the police and co-operate fully to ensure he is quickly vindicated.
“But he is keen not to get into a public dispute and would prefer to rectify this matter with the police as quickly and calmly as possible, and continue to focus on his own life and future.”
