Peter Andre has blasted ex-wife Katie Price’s privacy court action against him.
The former glamour girl is suing the pop hunk in the High Court in the UK for allegedly spreading rumours about her following their split.
She claims the father of her six-year-old son Junior and four-year-old daughter Princess masterminded a smear campaign against her in the press.
It is alleged Peter conspired with manager Claire Powell and former pal Jamelah Asmar to claim she had cheated with her riding instructor Andrew Gould (32).
But angry Peter (39) has hit back by accusing her of spreading "wild and untrue" allegations against him.
And in court documents, he dismisses her claim for damages for breach of privacy as absurd.
Instead he accuses Katie — AKA Jordan — of deliberately thrusting her private life into the public eye for her own "commercial gain".
His lawyers also list examples where they allege Katie made accusations designed to paint him as the bad guy.
It is claimed Katie (34) deliberately revealed she’d suffered a miscarriage during a TV chat with Piers Morgan to blacken his reputation.
They also slammed her claims that Pete knew the identity of the man who allegedly raped her — and tried to leak it.
In 2009, Katie said she had been sexually assaulted "by a famous celebrity" but refused to name him or press charges.
Peter claims she was not sure whether she was raped at all.
His lawyers claim she told him "she could not remember what had happened as she and the man she had sex with had got extremely drunk".
They claim police investigating the case were forced to drop their enquiries as Katie refused to ID the culprit.
The court papers also cite interviews she gave accusing Pete of not being committed to her disabled nine-year-old son Harvey, and questioned whether he had been faithful.
Katie, now engaged to Argentine model Leandro Penna (26), was forced to pay Pete damages and apologised last year after he sued her for defamation.
The papers say Peter has been forced to protect himself from a "false and public attack" by Katie in order to correct the false image she tried portray in the public spotlight.
Katie and Peter have been at loggerheads since their marriage ended three years ago.
