‘How dare you say this!’ Katie Price furiously hits back at ‘disgusting’ troll abusing her terminally ill mother Amy after posting hay bale snap

Katie Price furiously defended her terminally ill mother Amy, after a cruel troll left a vile comment under her latest post.

Amy was diagnosed with lung condition Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2017, a condition which impacts breathing and causes scarring on the lungs. 

The former glamour model, 42, took to her Instagram stories on Sunday to respond to the abusive message after she had posted a photograph of Amy, 65, sitting on a hay bale watching the sunset.

Katie had captioned the shot: ‘I love this picture of my mum’, alongside a red love heart emoji. 

However, the television personality was stunned when one troll commented: ‘How did she get up there???? She was dying 3 years ago and struggling breathing… Or was that more b**l to sell.’

Hitting back, Katie replied: ‘How dare you say this about my terminally ill mum. You disgusting human being’.

It comes after Katie penned a touching tribute to Amy as she marked Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Week on Thursday.  

The mother-of-five shared a post urging fans to donate to a charity appeal to fund research into the condition, which currently has no cure.

Amy was unable to visit Katie after being asked to shield during the COVID-19 pandemic, though the pair were able to reunite in June.

Katie first shared a pair of snaps alongside her mum from a recent holiday together, with the pair embracing in front of stunning beach views.  

She wrote: ‘There are no words to express the love that my brother, sister @sophie_pricey and I have for our mum. As you know, this is something that’s very close to my heart because my mum suffers from this condition. 

‘This week is IPF week. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a lung condition that scars your lungs and reduces the efficiency of your breathing. 

‘Approximately 6500 people are diagnosed with IPF every year. The @britishlungfoundation is asking for your support to help fund vital research and offer those with IPF hope for the future. See my latest story post for the link.’

Last month, Katie called her mum ‘my rock’ after a string of devastating events including the death of her puppy, Rolo, and breaking both feet in a freak accident while on holiday in Turkey.

Amy has been helping Katie to keep a positive mindset after she was left unable to walk for up to two years after jumping off a wall. 

A source told The Sun: ‘Katie’s mum has been amazing since the accident – a total superstar. 

‘As well as supporting her with many of the jobs she has had to do at home, Amy has been an emotional rock. She has insisted to Katie that this is just a blip and she will get over it. 

‘It has helped keep Katie in a really positive mindset at what is naturally a really, really tough time for her and given her a massive boost.’ 

What is idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis? 

  • Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a condition that causes the build-up of scar tissue in the lungs
  • It can lead to shortness of breath and eventual respiratory failure, and has been branded the ‘silent killer.’
  • The condition’s early symptoms are often missed or confused with a common cold or flu
  • IPF currently has no cure

A spokesperson for Katie told MailOnline: ‘Katie’s family, friends and supporters are keeping Katie focused and in good spirits – her own fun sense of humour is certainly keeping her spirits up.’ 

Katie also shared a lovely photo of her mother on Instagram and wrote: ‘How gorgeous does my mum look here in a picture taken today! 

‘Love my mum so much, she is my actual total rock!’  

When Amy was first diagnosed, she was given a three to five year life expectancy by doctors.  

‘I couldn’t cope and when you hear ‘terminal’ you think she’s not gone long left,’ Katie said last year on Loose Women. 

Speaking about how IPF, a rare condition that causes progressive and irreversible scarring of the lungs, has progressed, Amy said during the same interview: ‘I’m not too bad. 

‘I went for tests this week with the transplant team, they keep an eye on me, my lung function tests have dropped a little bit but that’s to be expected with what I have got because it is a progressive illness. 

‘But they do all the tests on the other organs in your body to prepare you for when they think you need a transplant – I’m not yet [on the transplant list] – and what they do is that they look at everything to make sure you can cope with it – your heart, liver and your kidneys and all that – and they are still 100 percent, they are fine.

‘So at the moment they go, ‘You are to healthy, go and enjoy yourself. And come back in six months.”
