Kieran Hayler was maintaining high spirits on Thursday morning after launching legal action over ex-wife Katie Price‘s social media postings earlier this week.  

The former glamour model, 43, said on her verified Instagram page she was watching the Netflix documentary on the disgraced Jim’ll Fix It presenter Jimmy Savile, and told her 2.7million followers it had ‘brought back memories’ before adding a picture of an article on Kieran, 35.

And despite the social media swipe, Kieran put on an positive front as he gave a thumbs up and wide smile for the cameras outside of his Sussex abode.

Kieran was clearly attempting to keep the legal drama at bay as he focused on preparing for his latest workout.

Someone seemingly rushing to her husband-to-be’s defence was Kieran’s fiancée Michelle Penticost, who shared a thinly-veiled post on her Instagram Story which read: ‘It’s time to move on my dear’. 

Good spirits: Former glamour model Katie, 43, was accused of 'psychological warfare' after she compared Kieran to Jimmy Savile and asked 'who's going to fix this?'

Katie was arrested on January 21 over claims she sent an abusive text to Michelle.

She spent the night in a cell after being quizzed by officers at Worthing Police station who had earlier picked Katie up from her home in Horsham after a report was made.  

Katie allegedly branded flight attendant Michelle a ‘c***ing w***e piece of s***’ and a ‘gutter s**g.

MailOnline understands that the mother-of-five may have breached the order a second time when she sent an anonymous letter attacking Michelle to a relative just before flying out to Thailand.

In latest proceedings, TV personality Katie was accused of ‘psychological warfare’ after she compared Kieran to Jimmy Savile and asked ‘who’s going to fix this?’. 

The article she shared on her Instagram Story told how he could be quizzed over three historical rape allegations relating to a woman – now known to be a minor under the age of 16. 

Katie added to her post ‘The underage girl in this situation needs justice too’. 

Hayler has previously said the claims were ‘false’ and ‘fabricated’ by a third party.

Investigation: The spokesman added: 'Kieran has assisted the police in fully co-operating to ensure he is soon vindicated'

Sussex Police, who was investigating, said it was probing a report that in 2016 a girl was raped by an adult male known to her at a location in West Sussex. No arrests had been made. 

Mr Hayler launched legal action over his ex-wife’s social media postings yesterday.

A spokesperson said: ‘Miss Price’s most recent outburst directed at her ex husband, Kieran Hayler on her social media serves no other purpose than to expose her own bitterness in driving unsolicited propaganda that is wholly made up of false allegations, this psychological warfare will not be tolerated.  

‘Kieran has assisted the police in fully co-operating to ensure he is soon vindicated.

Upset: A spokesman for Mr Hayler told the Sun: 'Kieran is very saddened by these false allegations, and is happy to fully assist the police and co-operate fully to ensure he is quickly vindicated'

‘Mr Hayler is keen not to get into a public dispute and will not engage with Miss Price otherwise than in the best interest of their children who remain in his stable care.

‘She’s taken it too far – Kieran is furious and has told her to stop right away – or face the consequences.

‘The posts will be coming down soon.’ 

A source close to Mr Hayler added: ‘Police have been in touch with Kieran regarding an allegation from 2016, which is believed to have been made by Katie. It relates to someone they knew while they were married. 

‘Kieran is co-operating and insists he has done nothing wrong — but he’s happy to speak to the cops about it. He just wants to move on from his marriage to Katie.’

The former stripper denies what he describes as ‘false allegations’ and insists he will cooperate with police inquiries to clear his name. 

The couple had two children together in that time – eight-year-old Jett and seven-year-old Bunny.  

A spokesman for Mr Hayler told the Sun:  ‘Kieran is very saddened by these false allegations, and is happy to fully assist the police and co-operate fully to ensure he is quickly vindicated.

 Michelle has grown close to Katie’s two children with Kieran. She also has her own child with the ex-stripper, seven-month-old son Apollo, and a ten-year old son Valentino from a previous relationship.
