Danielle Lloyd has spoken out in support of one of her close friends Katie Price following her alleged assault last month.

The 37 year old spoke about her "heartbreak" for the former glamour model and noted that she might need professional help to process her trauma.

"It was totally heart-breaking to hear about Katie's ordeal. I texted her as soon as I heard, but I don't think she has her phone," the soon to be mother of five told Closer magazine.

Pregnant Danielle continued: "It really struck me, because I love Katie, if it's true that she was assaulted, I expect she'll be totally traumatised and would need therapy."

Mum of five Katie was taken to hospital on 23 August following an incident at her Essex home.

In a statement, Essex Police said, "We were called by colleagues in the ambulance service to reports of an assault shortly after 1.30 am.

"We arrived and found a woman had sustained a facial injury which required hospital treatment."

The force later confirmed that a 32-year old man had been arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour and had been bailed until 20 September.

Opening up about the alleged attack after she was discharged from hospital, Katie said, "I've got a big bruise, my face is all puffy, and I went to hospital.

"I'm still all dazed. I'm devastated. I've told police that I was assaulted, and I am in shock that this happened."

A source recently told new that Katie wants a fresh start and to focus on her children after the alleged attack she suffered at her home.

"It's been a tough week, and Katie's feeling emotionally vulnerable, very fragile and exhausted. But she's also now more focused and just wants to get on with her life and put herself and her children first," it was reported
