Katie Price says son Harvey can't walk alone as he might say 'hello you d***head' to someone and get beaten up
KATIE Price has said her disabled son Harvey couldn't walk the streets alone – in case he called someone "a d**khead" and they beat him up.
The 42-year-old reality star opened up about the 18-year-old saying the idea of him being out on his own would scare him.
Harvey was born with the rare disorder septo-optic dysplasia, which affects brain function, hormones and vision, plus autism.
She told New: "For him to walk the streets on his own wouldn't be realistic.
"What scares me is that if he walked past somebody and said, 'Hello you d**khead', because he does that because he thinks it's funny, someone could take that the wrong way in the street.
"He could get punched and he would cower. That breaks my heart. He needs 24-hour care but he can still have an independent life.
"After college he's definitely coming home to me, without a doubt."
The Sun revealed last week that Harvey will be moving to a residential college. He will still be allowed home at weekends and Katie can visit.
Mum-of-five Katie said: “It’s so upsetting to think I won’t see him every day but this is the best thing for Harvey.
"We have to think positively because I don’t want him to think I’m just getting rid of him.
“This is his chance to live an independent life, learn skills and socialise with people other than me.
“I’m trying to get him used to me not being there all the time. But he’ll call on his iPad and say, ‘Mum, I need you’, and I run to him.
“When he’s three hours away it will break my heart because I won’t be able to get there as I’ve got to juggle him with my other kids.
“When he goes to college he will learn to be an adult. He says now, ‘Mummy, I’m not a boy, I’m a man.’"
