Peter Andre again voiced his objection to the way Rebekah Vardy’s past jokes about her anatomy were repeated in public.
Earlier this month, the Mysterious Girl singer was mentioned during Rebekah’s infamous ‘WAGatha Christie’ smear battle against Coleen Rooney, after she gave a 2004 interview about an alleged sexual encounter with him.
The article carried the headline “Peter hangs like a tiny chipolata, shaved, ruffled, lasts five minutes,” with Rebekah admitting that she was “forced into a situation by my ex-husband” to do the interview.
During an appearance on Friday’s Loose Women, Peter spoke about how he felt about history resurfacing.
“Come to think of it, I don’t think it’s the fact that something was said, because I think we all say stupid things,” he told the panel.
“It’s more about the fact that something is mentioned again and again and again and again. At some point you kind of go…
“And that’s the only thing, it becomes more than just that. We all say stupid things. Everyone does. I’m sure I’ve said a lot of stupid things in my life.”
However, the Mysterious Girl singer joked, “Are you asking me to address the elephant in the room? Did I say elephant?”
Last week, Peter talked about being mentioned in court in a video posted to his social media channels.
“Sorry Emily [his wife] and the kids who got to see and hear some not-so-nice stuff,” he wrote in the caption, before saying in the video, “Since I didn’t have much to say about it, and just let everyone laugh and whatever, I’ll put get out.
“For fifteen years this has been going on, and I kept quiet and said nothing, and let everybody laugh and let everybody say what they wanted.”
“Okay, yes, now, [Rebekah] went to court and admitted that the story was made up, and she did it because her ex-husband forced her to. Fair.
“But put all that aside and think about how it feels if a man, or if I said that, about his anatomy, or a man said something about a woman’s anatomy, and made up something, I don’t know, I don’t know. . – you can use your imagination – to say something very unflattering.
“There would be outrage, absolute outrage. But because it’s been said about me, it’s been the butt of all the jokes, I’ve been taking it for fifteen years.”
He continued: “Some of you are going to say, ‘Oh, get over it, don’t say anything, whatever.’ You have to understand, what’s even worse is that this is discussed in a Superior Court, and the lawyer is bringing it up… and it’s brought up again. And the only one who stands there and takes blow after blow is me.
“And I’m going to laugh about it for a while, but think about what it would be like if it were the other way around, that’s all I’m saying.
“Okay, yeah, I think we all know now that it’s just a made-up story, okay, okay. But it’s a little more serious than that. And I think it’s not fair that something like this can happen again and again and again.
“We talk about all kinds of things, about mental health, about being kind and about all that kind of stuff, and nothing seems to change.”
