Katie Price has admitted that Peter Andre did take her children off her after discovering her cocaine use.
She also claimed that her ex Kieran Hayler had gone behind her back to tell him.
Appearing on Loose Women today for the first time since she was handed a driving ban, Katie branded her ‘self-medicating’ "disgusting".
However she insisted that she was glad she told her family and checked into the Priory.
"If I didn’t say anything I would still be in that rut now," she said.
Asked about whether her children were still in her life, Katie said: "Why do I have to explain myself? The kids are all back to normal. I don’t blame Pete for doing what he was doing."

Katie added: "The ex told him I was self-medicating."
The mother-of-five last appeared on the ITV daytime show as a guest in October 2018, after which she was banned from driving for three months after pleading guilty to driving while disqualified.
She was fined £1,100, prompting her to flog her bright pink Barbie jeep on eBay .
Katie told the panel that it was "so good to be back" after her nightmare year.

After insisting that she was in a "good place", she said: "Obviously last year I wasn’t in a good place. So much was going on – it was hard for a human being to deal with."
Asked about her stint in rehab, she denied that she went to the Priory for drink and drugs and said that a combination of finding out about her mum’s condition, her ex cheating and her pets dying had contributed to her bad mindset.

Branding it a "nightmare", she said that during that period she just wanted to "sleep all the time".
In December she also narrowly avoided bankruptcy – something she has blamed on her ex-boyfriends as she continues divorce proceedings with ex Kieran Hayler, who is the dad to kids Bunny and Jett.
