Katie Price trolled for buying sofa despite being too skint to pay court fine

Katie Price has been viciously trolled for boasting about buying a new sofa despite claiming to be too skint to pay her court fine.

The former glamour girl, 40, has come under fire over her mucky mansion makeove r, which she detailed online this week.

After months of leaving her mansion in Horsham, West Sussex to rot, she’s finally cleared up the mess and done some DIY.

She took to Instagram to brag about her fancy new sofa and the sparkly wallpaper she had put up.

Katie wrote: " So well chuffed with my house how it’s come together and love my new sofa @tradepricesofaswalesuk woooo."

She added of her wallpaper: "You know I love sparkles my wall paper from @wallpapersales do this in different colours it’s soooo me and have it in my kitchen."

However, her followers pointed out that less than a week ago Katie claimed she was too broke to hand over a £1,100 fine for her driving offences.

One wrote: "Wish I could afford that when ment to be skint and can’t afford to payfine asking for time to pay."

Another added: "Amazing how does someone who’s spared bankruptcy afford a very expensive looking new sofa?"

A third wrote: "How did you manage to afford that as ur bankrupt and have a driving fine!!!!"

Katie has been battling spiralling money troubles for the last year and narrowly avoided being made bankrupt in late 2017.

However, she publicly declared she was still broke during her court date last Wednesday.

The mother-of-five was just handed a three-month driving ban and a £1,100 fine plus costs for two motoring offences.

It’s been a tense few months for Katie after it was reported that her mansion was so filthy it was deemed unsellable .

Back in August the mum-of-five, once worth a rumoured £45million, was given 12 weeks to come up with a repayment plan for her spiralling debts.

In October Katie was spotted smiling as she was snapped leaving an estate agents amid reports she was attempting to sell her £2million Sussex mansion to raise funds.

She managed to swerve insolvency after the tax man agreed to accept her proposed repayment plan for a £22,000 debt.

The star narrowly avoided bankruptcy after agreeing a last minute deal with her creditors and was able to keep her house which she has now given a total makeover.
