Katie Price has vowed "no one will ever destroy me again" as she said she finally feels in control of her life for the first time in 10 years.
The 43-year-old reality star was discussing her campaign for a new law against online trolling, inspired by her 19-year-old disabled son Harvey, and said felt she had finally turned her life around for the better.
Price told the Life, Interrupted with Simon Thomas podcast in an interview recorded in April: "It's the first time in 10 years I'm in control of my life and love me or hate me, if it wasn't for my situation I wouldn't have been able to start creating this Harvey's Law, and I'm all for helping people and using my position to be able to help others, especially like Harvey with the disability and to raise more awareness and do what I can now.
"I'm lucky enough to have turned my life around, I am here, I'm switched on and I feel brand new, and no-one will ever, ever destroy me again.
"You know I've made mistakes in the past, of course I have, but then people don't realise I was suffering at the same time. There's always reasons why people do things and you rebel.
"I can only apologise that sometimes I acted the way I did because I was hurting and I didn't know how else to let it out."
The Celebrity MasterChef contestant – who has previously spoken about her treatment for cocaine addiction – returned to rehab at the beginning of 2020 and was submitted to drugs tests before she could see her children again.
The former glamour model is mother to 19-year-old son Harvey – whose estranged father is former footballer Dwight Yorke – and teenagers Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with first husband Peter Andre.
Price has often said she felt she was portrayed negatively in her split from the Mysterious Girl singer and was embroiled in a lengthy legal battle with him and her former manager Claire Powell, which was settled privately in 2015.
She also has son Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven, with third husband Kieran Hayler.
Last year she was ordered to pay her second husband Alex Reid £25,000 for misusing information about his sex life.
The reality star – once said to be worth £40 million – was declared bankrupt in 2019.
