    Alex Reid has accused his ex-wife Katie Price of getting her fans to say “the most horrific, disgusting things” to him on social media

    The 45-year-old former MMA fighter was married to Katie from 2010 until 2012, and has alleged he was “viciously trolled” by her and her fans after their marriage ended

    Alex - who is now in a relationship with Nikki Manashe - even claimed the comments people were making on social media got so bad he had to have “therapy for suicide” because of the impact it had on his mental health.

    Speaking during an appearance on FUBAR Radio, he explained: “For a lot of years I hated the word celebrity because it causes you to get so many so much negativity … I've been horrendously trolled, I mean, viciously.

    “I mean, mine specifically by the hands of my ex-wife, which is even crazier, who runs an anti-trolling society. And what she would do is she'd get all of her fans to say the most horrific, disgusting things. And there's that for a while when you're not strong enough and mature enough can really affect you.

    “I mean, I've had therapy for suicide. I've had so much therapy because the horrible, just disgusting things, sticks and stones may break your bones, but names will never hurt you. How they do.”

    The former paratrooper also suggested he has been “diagnosed with something” to do with his mental health, but wouldn’t give any further details.

    He said: “I’ve just been diagnosed with something. And it explains a lot. I'm not going to say what it is. I am a scaredy-cat and although I’ve had over 300 fights, I've mixed with soldiers, terrorists, I’ve been in the most scary situations, I put on another personality so I can cope with that. So I'm tough, but really deep down, there's a scared little boy who’s crying, screaming, not wanting to be there.

    “I've always felt different. I've always felt like I wanted to fit in. But when I got in there, I didn't fit in. And now I understand why. And I've taken all these guises … Just a scared little boy, looking for love.”

    Elsewhere on the radio show, Alex spoke about the COVID-19 pandemic and confessed he is an “anti-masker” who doesn’t believe wearing a face covering will prevent the spread of the virus.

    Alex also said he “100 percent” had the illness “right at the beginning”, and believes he cured himself by having a “positive mindset”.

    He said: “I’m of the opinion that the mask, I'm an anti-masker, isn't good for the immune system, isn't helping. The number one thing I think of health is what's going on in your mind and in your heart. And if you’re sad and miserable, one of the two things that are going to stop that is communication and community. Breathing in that air the whole time is not great. I'm not buying that.

    “I 100 percent have had it right at the beginning. I felt s***** for days. I had the poos and an achy body, all that stuff. And I didn't do anything. I just recovered, rested and did what you thought you would normally do when you feel poorly. I ate well. Listen, I’ve done all my partying. I’m not anti a party, but I'm 45 years young and I want to live another good 45 years, hopefully. So I look after myself. So I just was, it's a positive mindset.”
