English media personality, Katie Price reveals she was raped at gunpoint in South Africa in 2018

Katie Price has revealed she was raped during a horrifying carjacking in South Africa in 2018. 

The English media personality, model, and businesswoman disclosed this  ahead of her harrowing documentary Trauma And Me. 

Speaking in an interview with MailOnline, Katie, 44, recalled the terrifying ordeal which saw her held at gunpoint during filming for her Quest Red reality show, My Crazy Life with ITV. 

She detailed the traumatic events that led her to reach her breaking point, suffering a mental breakdown in 2018, and a failed suicide attempt where she 'knocked herself out and had black eyes'  after which she sought treatment for PTSD.

She said: 'The experience when I was filming with ITV in South Africa, we had no security, if we had security they would have been able to deal with the six guys that jumped us, held me at gunpoint, and raped me.' 

Katie was thrown out of the vehicle by the attackers, during her journey from Johannesburg to Swaziland in two people carriers with the production crew.
