Katie Price has admitted her 18-year-old son Harvey eats raw pizzas because of uncontrollable food cravings.
Harvey has Prader-Willi syndrome, a condition which causes him to be constantly hungry.
The teenager's recent weight gain has seen him balloon to 29st and doctors have warned he's at serious risk of a heart attack if he doesn't shed pounds urgently.
Now the former glamour model, 42, has revealed he will steal frozen pizzas from her fridge and eat them in a bid to curb his hunger.
Katie said: “I tell him he’ll die and he says, ‘No, don’t be silly, Mummy’s only joking’.
"He doesn’t understand. He’s always been a big boy, always been chubby, but now it’s ridiculous.
“His clothes are 7XL, there are only two shops on the internet where I can get clothes for him.
“He walks up the stairs and he’s sweating and out of breath."
“I’m really upset and worried about Harvey’s weight because now it’s on, the damage is done.
“People say to me, ‘Why don’t you just not let him eat?’ but they don’t understand.
“He’ll smash things or headbutt the walls if I say no to him.
“But there is no time to wait, he has to lose weight now.”
Katie believes his troubled relationship with food stems from his disability as she previously told The Sun: “It’s a cruel illness. He feels hungry all the time.
“Every time I feed him, it’s killing him.
“Even though it makes him happy, it’s cruel of me to do it.
“He needs to lose weight or he’ll end up dead. He doesn’t deserve that. I don’t want to lose him.
“He’s only 18, he’s got his whole life ahead of him. I will do anything to help.”
The bombshell has been forced to padlock the kitchen fridge and cupboards in a bid to stop his desperate attempts of finding food.
Katie, who is currently recuperating from a freak accident which saw her break both of her feet, has previously said she tells Harvey that "he'll die" if he continues.
