The editor of a gay magazine has accused Katie Price of ruining her new husband Alex Reid’s career by banning him from appearing on the cover of the publication.

Reid, a cage fighter, was to appear on the cover of Attitude but editor Matthew Todd said that the glamour model started screaming and shouting during the unpaid shoot, calling it tasteless.

Todd told the Sun: “She just turned into a monster. It is all about money for her, but Alex was doing this to promote his career and he and his team had agreed to it.”

He continued: “We started the shoot and he was wearing a dressing gown, but when he moved on to the naked thing – which wouldn’t have involved full frontal – Jordan started this hysterical screaming that he wasn’t doing it as he wasn’t getting paid.

“She was screaming that it wouldn’t be tasteful – which coming from her is unbelievable.”

Todd added: “I’ve never had anyone screech like a loony in a shoot before.

“Her behaviour cost him the cover. It could have been really good for him – we have had amazing people like David Beckham and Robbie Williams who all did shoots for us without any problems.

“But she is damaging his career. It was just really, really unprofessional.”

Dancing On Ice star Danny Young was given this month’s front cover instead, while Reid was relegated to a small spot inside the magazine.
