Katie Price's ex Leandro Penna has told how he ended their relationship because she was "driving him insane", according to reports.
The glamour model, 34, announced on earlier this week that she and her boyfriend, who met at the Oscars in February last year, had "mutually" decided to end their relationship but will remain friends.
But The Sun said that Leandro, 27, told an Argentinian magazine: "I left her simply because she is crazy. Katie's brain is not wired right, or the wires don't connect properly.
"I don't know what's wrong with her. I was thinking it over recently and one day decided to pack my bags and leave.
"There was nothing else I could do. She was driving me insane," he is reported to have told Caras magazine.
Despite an earlier brief split, Leandro added that there was no going back, reportedly saying: "Katie is totally crazy. What started beautifully in February last year has now come to an end."
In a statement on her website, Katie said this week that the split had been amicable:
"We will always feel deep affection for each other, but sometimes relationships just run their course... we've mutually decided to call it a day, but we really wish each other nothing but the very best and will remain best of friends," she said.
She recently denied reports she sent flirty messages to X Factor contestant Dan Ferrari-Lane from the group District 3.
