Katie Price has reportedly demanded £500,000 from ex-boyfriend Dwight Yorke for child support back-payments for son Harvey.
The skint mum-of-five is thought to have asked her ex for hard cash after sharing a posted of her teenage son with his dad on Instagram on Friday night.
Katie is currently battling bankruptcy after blowing her £45million fortune.
With her third divorce on the way, she is desperate for cash to support her family.
"Katie’s in a dire financial situation and she thinks Dwight owes her thousands of pounds," a source told the Sun .
"She’s been telling friends that by raising Harvey alone, she’s spent millions on him – but half of that should have come from Dwight."

"Katie’s had to pay for nannies, nurses, the right school, medicine, clothes … the list is endless," the source continued.
"Just because Dwight’s not in his son’s life it doesn’t mean he gets out of paying for him.
"She thinks it’s about time he chipped in and is asking for £500,000, even though she says she’s owed way more than that.
"She’s never asked for anything off him, but with Christmas coming up, the least he could do is hand over some money to help her out now she’s struggling."
Mirror Online has contacted Katie and Dwight’s respective representatives for comment.

Katie reached out to her ex with a series of heartbreaking posts about their disabled son Harvey over the weekend.
Katie told Harvey’s biological dad that it’s "never too late" to be in his son’s life.
"Harv as a baby just found these pics. I am so proud of the person he has become. For any of my followers bringing a child up with complex needs I admire you," she wrote sharing baby pictures on Instagram.
"It’s not easy but it is totally worth it. To who has never been there for him just remember it’s never too late. The door is always open…"
She also shared a picture that 16-year-old Harvey had made for Children In Need night.
"Harvey is so clever. How cute he just made this for me. We are supporting children in need. Are you?" she commented.

Katie Price found out her baby daddy Dwight Yorke had cheated on her live on camera while she was secretly pregnant with eldest son Harvey.
The glamour model was on a lingerie photoshoot when she was presented with evidence the Aston Villa star had been partying with other women, despite getting her pregnant 14 weeks previously.
To make matters worse, Katie was already dealing with her secret pregnancy and was frightened that her unplanned baby would hugely disrupt her career path.
Katie ended up breaking the news of her pregnancy after the Dwight and Australian model Gabby Richens were splashed – causing public opinion to massively shift against him.
The two warring exes had a rocky relationship throughout the rest of her pregnancy, and while the footballer did turn up to hospital to visit his son, he swiftly decided not to be part of Harvey’s life.

Earlier this week Katie revealed how much her disabled son Harvey is struggling without his siblings.
The youngest two, Jett and Bunny, currently split their time between Katie and her ex Kieran Hayler, while Peter Andre has moved the other two, Junior and Princess, in with him.
But with just his mum for company, Katie said that her first born is pining for his brothers and sisters.
"Harvey’s been really lonely in the house without the other kids," she said on last night’s special of her reality show, My Crazy Life.
So in a bid to give him a playmate, she splashed out £1,000 on a blue German Shepard pup.
"There’s a new man in mummy’s life now, and who’s that?" she asked her son, who happily replied, "Harvey!"

"No you plonker, you’ve been in my life for 16 years," she joked before revealing she bought him the pup for company.
"I thought I’d get something to cheer him up, and I got Bear," she said.
Sitting alone in the sprawling but empty nine-bedroom mansion, she then taught Harvey to cuddle his pet ‘like a baby’
"He loves that Harv! Look at you, that is so adorable," she gushed, asking, "Do you like him?"

"He’s lovely!" her delighted son replied.
Later in the show, Katie admitted it’s not just Harvey, 16, who feels the absence of their once huge family.
"I miss having all five kids in the house at once. It’s been quite quiet without them all," she said.
"The hardest thing about a divorce is not having your kids and having to share them. But then again I would never, ever stop the kids ever seeing their dads because it’s not fair on the kids.
"But I hate it. When I go home and it’s just me and Harvs, it’s so quiet and lonely."
