Unable to snag a similar gig as Caitlyn, former lover of Katie Price, Alex Reid has instead announced that he identifies as trans in this week’s Star Magazine. We’re guessing it wasn’t shot by Annie Leibovitz then. Having seen Alex dressed up as Roxanne in a gold swimsuit similar to the one Pricey wore in Ibiza, and after THOSE claims by Katie about slipping a thumb up his butt, it’s hardly breaking news… But it is the first time that Reid has publicly admitted he identifies as trans, and perhaps even to himself:

Alex says, “Ever since I was a child I’ve been happy to dress up and play different characters,’ adding that he can definitely relate to Caitlyn, 66, and looks up to her as a role model.┬áBruce was mocked because trans people are the last social taboo. We don’t have the same rights. Wow, I just said ‘we’. I guess I am. Why not be trans?” He also stated he looks up to Caitlyn and would like to be a role model for the trans community.

Katie Price previously said she would “destroy” him with the photos and videos she has of him. Is it wrong that we kinda wanna see them?

Alex Reid Exposed, his autobiography, will be out some time in 2016.
