British model, Katie Price, has tendered an open apology after being spared jail for flipping her car while drunk.
She took to her Instagram page on Thursday to offer an apology for the incident, after her trial at a United Kingdom Magistrate court.
“I would like to thank my family – my children, my mum, dad, sister, brother, my partner Carl, Leigh, and my friends who have supported me throughout these past few months
“It’s been a really difficult time and I’m incredibly sorry for my actions – I’m sincerely grateful nobody was hurt – I realise the damage my actions could have caused not only to another family but to my own as well.
“I’m now spending time getting better – mental health is a hidden illness and can strike at any time.
“The triggers that cause my anxiety and behaviour are something I’m trying to understand, come to terms with, and learn to control moving forward.
“This will be a long process for myself and something I’ll continue to work on for the rest of my life. It’s also something I can work on with my family so we can progress on a new chapter together.
“Thank you for all the messages of goodwill that I’ve received. I’m going to surround myself with my loving family and friends and continue doing the work I love as it brings me enjoyment and helps my mental health. Thank you, everyone.”
The 43-year-old wrote the statement a day after being handed a 16-week suspended sentence and two-year ban at Crawley Magistrates’ Court.
According to Daily Mail, Price escaped jail because she complied with a requirement to attend The Priory, a £6,800-a-week rehab centre.
Price had committed her ninth motoring offence on September 28, 2021 when she flipped her car on its side at a country lane while drunk.
