The reality star is re-selling old clothes from fast fashion companies, who already sell items at affordable prices, for even less as she tries to turn her financial misfortunes around
Katie Price has taken to re-selling cheap online fashion brands via her Depop platform following her latest bankruptcy court agreement.
The 48-year-old star was declared bankrupt back in 2019 – but has managed to maintain her luxury lifestyle including exotic trips abroad despite her money woes.
Last month, she reached an agreement in court to make repayments relating to £2.3 million that has been due to creditors – with the star agreeing to pay a ‘small contribution’ to reduce the amount owed to creditors along with a new regular payment plan at a High Court hearing on February 14th.
Meanwhile, she has been bringing in some extra cash via her page on Depop – a social e-commerce company that allows those with accounts to sell items to others.
But perhaps in a demonstration of how keen she is to make a penny, the star has been selling off items that were pretty cheap initially and re-selling them at discount prices.
One item, from online shop Girl In The Mirror – which sell items including cheap tongue-in-cheek clothes that are inspired by big budget fashion houses – was snapped up by a fan for just £7.
The mustard colored top has a design that has a passing resemblance to the famous Fendi logo which features two F letters interlocked – although the Girl In The Mirror item appears to include the letters I, E and F.
While Katie’s single-digit price tag for the resale of the item could be considered an absolute bargain as Girl In The Mirror typically sell jumpers and t-shirts for around £25 which would be considered affordable for many.
Other items sold by Katie include Hype Hoodies which she is selling for £20 when they originally retail for around £40 – while old sports bras are being sold for less than a tenner.
Last year, Katie was accused by fans of selling “strained” clothes via her Depop page – with angry fans leaving negative feedback.
One fan hit out the star over a pair of shoes they’d bought from her via Depop to claim they were “wrecked” when they arrived in the post.
While another unimpressed fan complained: “I’ve just received my item and it wasn’t stated in the description that it has a rather big black circle stain and 3 smaller black stains on the back of it…”
Despite the negative feedback, Katie holds an impressive five-star rating for her page – and she has so far flogged over 2,200 items.
As well as selling her old and allegedly well worn wares, Katie has been bringing in extra income via the launch of her OnlyFans page.
The website is notorious for it’s x-rated content which fans can pay to have access to – with sex workers around the world using it to top up their income.
Fellow British celebrity Kerry Katona has famously claimed she has made more than £1 million thanks to subscriptions since she signed up and started selling photos of herself.
However, there are signs that Katie isn’t enjoying such fortunes as she has slashed her subscription price in recent weeks by 50% and a lack of comments from fans hints that she hasn’t attracted that many fans to sign up.
While other reports have suggested that those who have signed up to her OnlyFans page have been disappointed by the content.
