Toy boy Leandro Penna is left fuming after girlfriend Katie Price bans him from entering the Big Brother house.
Katie Price, aka Jordan, and Argentinean lover Leandro are on a collision path when it comes to future ambitions.
Living the lime light along side Katie, Leandro is itching to get some fame of his own. Back in his home county, Argentina, Leandro, 26, is a small time telly star and was left dribbling with desire when production bosses approached him to be on a line up of reality TV shows, including Big brother and I’m a celebrity get me out Of here!
If it was up to Leandro, we would be seeing his face littered across every show he could get one, but Jordan has firmly put a spanner in the works.
Fearing that her toy boy will follow the rest of her men and turn into a fame hungry junkies, Jordan has slapped a ban on him staring in reality TV shows, except for her own of course.
A source close to the couple reported: “Katie has told him that if he does any reality television it will be on her show or nothing.
“She doesn’t want him going into Big Brother or anything like that. The last thing she needs is another Alex on her hands.
“Reality TV has been the making of her, but has also, it it’s own way, destroyed every relationship she’s had – and she doesn’t want to let it happen again.”
Conscious that the public are cottoning on to the fact he is sponging off his girlfriend, Leandro is keen to start a career in the UK.
“Leandro know’s he needs an income. He does not have much work lined up in the US or in Argentina, so TV opportunities in Britain would suit him well.”
The insider adds: “Leandro is quite money focused. If big bucks are out on the table and Katie chooses to stand in his way, she’ll see a ruthless side to Leandro’s personality.”
It is understandable that Katie is reacting in this way towards reality TV, especially Big Brother. Last year in the supposedly ‘last ever’ celebrity big brother, her husband Alex Reid left the show with the winning title. The ex-glamor model originally seemed proud that her hubby had won over the publics hearts but her true feelings soon became clear.
After there messy split, in January the mum-of-three issued a statement which slammed the cage fighter for becoming obsessed with fame.
She said: “Our difficulties were not helped by Alex becoming more fascinated by life in the media eye. Obviously I cannot be critical of someone wanting to do this and originally I tied to help him with his career by getting him contracts with my production company.”
She added: “However, Alex’s desire to promote himself caused a change in the dynamic of our relationship.”
The source close to the stars added: “Celebrity Big brother changed Alex for the worse. She doesn’t want that happening to Leandro, too.”
