Just days after cage fighter Alex Reid won Celebrity Big Brother in the UK, he and his girlfriend Katie Price have become husband and wife in a shotgun Las Vegas wedding ceremony.
Katie Price, also known as Jordan – and Alex Reid headed to Wynn’s Las Vegas Wedding Salon for the brief, family only wedding ceremony, in which they exchanged vows and rings. An insider close to the couple told the media: “They were scurrying around all day, shopping for rings and prepping for the wedding.“
According to Katie Price’s publicist, the wedding was not based on any financial deals or exclusive magazine rights with any publication. Price has drew a lot of criticism since her divorce with Peter Andre last year, and more-so with the latest wedding. Days after Alex Reid entered the Big Brother house, Katie dumped him via the media without his knowledge. As soon as he became popular in the public’s eyes, and it looked like he would win the show, her attitude towards him completely changed and she wanted him back again.
Many have speculated that she went back because she could profit off his new-found fame. It has been estimated that now the pair have married, they could each earn around £1.5 million per year for reality TV shows, similar to the TV shows Jordan took part in after she married Peter Andre. The pair are currently staying in the luxury £6,500 per night honeymoon suit at the Emirates Hotel in Las Vegas.
Nobody is expecting this marriage to last the distance, and many speculate that when the magazine and TV deals dry up, she will drop him like a ton of bricks. What do you think about Alex Reid and Katie Price’s Marriage? Is it genuine, or is this purely for the media deals the pair are now bound to setup?
