The mechanic who ‘pimped’ Katie Price’s Barbie pink Range Rover is apparently suing her over £3.5k worth of unpaid bills

The car may have seen better days after Katie ploughed it into another vehicle under the influence back in October, but earlier this year she took it to ‘celebrity garage’ Valet Magic to have it decked out in pink, faux fur and all things Barbie.

But now the owner of the garage, Robbie Orlando, claims he has been left with no choice but to take the mum of five to court after she failed to hold up her end of the bargain.

During a difficult financial year, Katie had asked the mechanic if he would do the expensive work for free – in exchange for coverage on her reality show, My Crazy Life.

“The production team called us to arrange filming and everything was good from our point of view. We returned the car and spent some more time filming – she was absolutely blown away with the results. It would have made brilliant TV.”

Despite her thrilled reaction and her promise to feature Valet Magic, Katie is now reportedly ignoring Robbie’s messages – and refusing to pay up.

“It’s not fair; it’s not even about the money to be honest. It’s not about that, it’s more you know we were offered a deal, the deal got broken and it’s not on. The least she could do is reply.” he said.

“I’ve asked them to pay for the work we’ve done or just give us the Jeep. If I don’t get a reply, the only thing I can do is take her to court."
