Katie Price’s ex Kieran Hayler had air rifle seized by police after he was arrested

Police seized an air rifle from reality star Katie Price’s ex, Kieran Hayler, after he was arrested amid allegations he had made threats to fire it, it has been reported by The Sun.

Kieran, 36, was arrested on suspicion of child neglect and possessing a firearm.

A spokesperson for Sussex Police told The Mirror: "A man has been arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence and child neglect.

"He has been taken into custody for questioning. We will not be commenting further."

Cops headed to Kieran's West Sussex home at around 4pm on Friday, according to The Sun. He was then released after midnight.

Kieran broke his silence as he returned to Instagram at around 2am on Easter Sunday morning, by sharing a cryptic quote.

The quote read: "A person's true colours will always show within time. You may be fooled for the moment, but be patient and see what happens."

He also shared a snippet of an article that was headlined "Parental Alienation is child abuse" and included an explanation of what the phrase means and what the "primary strategies of an abuser" may be.

Kieran was seen on Easter Sunday with his fiancee Michelle Penticost, 41, and their son Apollo, as they put on a united front.

Kieran seemed to be determined to prove he was getting on with his Easter Sunday as he shared a number of snaps with Michelle and Apollo as they enjoyed an Easter egg hunt and a dinner out together.

He also shared a video of a table at his home covered with Easter treats, including chocolate eggs, books and toys, and tagged his partner.

Kieran could be heard saying in the background: "Oh, the Easter bunny has been this morning. Excited for Apollo and Valentino to get up and they get to see their stuff."

He was married to former glamour model Katie Price from from 2013 until 2018.

Kieran shares two children with Katie, nine year old son Jett and eight year old daughter Bunny.

Katie didn't miss an opportunity to slam her ex-husband, as she labelled him "disgusting".

She was seen at London Stansted Airport with her on-off partner Carl Woods, 34, and three of her children, including Jett and Bunny that she shares with Kieran.

She told The Sun: "I just think he's disgusting.

"That's why the kids have been living with me, there's a reason.

"He's a disgusting human being. I'm here to protect my children."

OK! has contacted Kieran and Katie's reps for comment.
