Former glamor model Katie Price shared the most devastating incident of her life when she was raped at gunpoint while filming in South Africa in 2018.
Price, 44, says she “knocked out herself and had black eyes” in a failed suicide attempt as she struggled with her mental health after the attack.
The model was with her children and a film crew when they were ambushed by the attackers while driving from Johannesburg to Swaziland in two passenger cars while filming her ITV reality series My Crazy Life.
Speaking of the incident, the mother of five told MailOnline: “The experience when I was filming with ITV in South Africa we had no security, if we had security they would have helped when the six boys jumped out, held me at gunpoint and raped me.”
Price first spoke about the attack on Channel 4’s SAS: Celebrity Who Dares Wins in 2020, saying: “The police said it was a miracle they didn’t kill us.”
In her new documentary, which will air Thursday, the TV personality has reflected on her struggles with mental health, the situations that led to her downward spiral and the consequences of her actions.
“After years of neglect, I had a nervous breakdown in 2018. I was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder,” she told the program.
“I got severe depression a few years ago, depression on top of PTSD, I was suicidal, didn’t want to be here. I tried to commit suicide.
“I knocked myself out and had black eyes. I had bruises around my neck. I woke up. I didn’t want to be here.”
