However he was devastated at being refused access to Harvey, Katie's disabled son from her romance with footballer Dwight Yorke. He was very close to Harvey and had even called him his "first" son. Andre also made official moves to adopt him legally. Kate is still in love with Pete and wants to persuade him to give their marriage another shot," the Mirror quoted a source as saying.
"She was desperate to be present at the handover so that she and the kids could spend time with their dad and remind him how great family life is - and, hopefully, can once again be. But he saw through her ploy and has reached the end of his tether following a series of increasingly hostile rows, the culmination being one at the beginning of this week.
"He wants nothing more to do with her. As far as Pete is concerned, the marriage is over. Now it's all about the kids. Happily, Kate agreed Pete could see them over the bank holiday weekend, which meant the world to him. The only sour point was little Harvey. Pete's been itching to see the little one ever since the couple announced their split. But Kate dug her heels in when he refused to meet her face-to-face.
"Pete had high hopes he would see Harvey on Friday and over the weekend, but now it's looking unlikely. He is so sad. Katie hasn't seen Harvey for a week though either, so she feels she has to make up for lost time - plus it's her birthday so she wants her son with her. It's been an explosive cause of tension and things have never been so bad between the pair," the source added.
