Dwight Yorke has jetted off to the Maldives, just as Katie Price pleaded with him to meet with estranged son Harvey.
The former Manchester United player had spent the Christmas period in Dubai and is continuing his holiday abroad, having now touched down in the Maldives.
Taking to Instagram, Dwight, 48, shared a snap alongside former cricket player Brian Lara and fellow former footballer Russell Latapy.
‘WELCOME to #Koodoo,’ he wrote. ‘About to enjoy this beautiful paradise with @brianlaraofficial @russellatapy.’
It comes after Katie, 41, shared an emotional video on Instagram of their son Harvey, 17, saying he ‘loved’ him, with the former glamour model pleading with Dwight to make contact.
In the clip, Katie asked Harvey who he would like to send a message to on Instagram, to which he responded: ‘Daddy Dwight.’
‘I love you, daddy Dwight, you look beautiful,’ Harvey continued.
As she shared the video to her Instagram page, Katie wrote: ‘Anyone who knows @officialdwightyorke19 please get him to contact his son. Harvey doesn’t deserve this, he [sees] his other son Tiger so I don’t understand.
‘He does charity work for different kids charity yet doesn’t see or support his own son. I don’t get it! [sic]’
The star later shared the same video to her Instagram story, adding: ‘@officialdwightyorke19 please see your son, get in contact, have a heart as Harvey doesn’t deserve the fact you see your other son and not him!
‘You’re always welcome and never too late! Why can’t Harvey meet his brother?’
Katie has claimed that Dwight has only met with Harvey – who has Prader-Willi syndrome, as well as autism and is partially-blind – a handful of times since he was born, despite her pleas for him to be a part of his life.
The two had split by the time Katie gave birth to Harvey, her first child, in May 2002 – and she has since criticised the former sportsman for his treatment of their son.
Dwight initially denied he was the father after Katie became pregnant, forcing her to undergo DNA tests to confirm he was.
