Has Harvey smashed things before?
Katie has detailed on many occasions how Harvey can smash things when he is startled or frustrated.
During an interview this January with Women’s Hour, Katie explained: “The crisis point was the point that my windows were getting smashed every morning because he wanted to be with me.
“He knew, because he was big and strong, that he’d smash a window and then the driver wouldn’t have him in the car because he’d go and smash the windscreen of the car, or he’d start attacking the driver.
“He’d do that because he knew if he did that, he’d be at home with me because they wouldn’t take him to school.”

How did Katie’s followers react to the post?
Despite the mess Harvey made, many of Katie’s fans only have sympathy for the teen.
One Instagram user responded to the post with: “Awwww bless him. People don’t understand do they how the simplest of things can set off triggers. Hope you’re okay.”
While another user praised: “This is what the media don’t show, they try paint Katie to be a horrible mother when she’s Harvey’s hero, best friend, everything…
“She’s done everything for her little boy… she’s a fantastic mother and I’ll always be a fan of Katie Price. You’re a beautiful soul Katie.”
And a third user commented: “Katie I feel for you, I had a disabled sister and family life was not good because of the violent outbursts but somehow we cope.”
