Chantelle Houghton has revealed she's 'devastated' about former fiance Alex Reid's tell-all interview (opens in new tab). The cage fighter, who split from the ex-Celebrity Big Brother star on September 7, told Now that he isn't allowed to see their three-month-old daughter Dolly without Chantelle's presence and that he hates being apart from the baby. Chantelle hit back, writing in her New! column: "I am gutted that Alex gave an interview to a magazine about our break-up. I actually feel devastated that he did it so soon - it wasn't even a week after we split. "I'm upset about the timing and by what he said. It's so hurtful - this is my life, it's not a joke. I feel betrayed, really." The reality TV star continued: "I saw Alex the weekend before last, when he came to the house to see Dolly on the Sunday. And he came again last Saturday. Like I said to him, I'm just busy being a mummy at the moment." She added: "I take my hat off to all those single mums out there who have a full-time job, too. It can't be easy." Alex - Katie Price's ex - previously made a public video message, asking his ex to keep their relationship problems private, but Chantelle admitted to being 'really confused' by this. "I have seen Alex's video message and I'm really confused by it," she said.
