Peter Andre Models for ED HARDY – Christian Audigier

PETER Andre is to become a model for Michael Jackson’s favourite designer Christian Audigier (ED Hardy). The singer has signed a Β£500,000 deal after shedding a stone during the bitter divorce proceedings with glamour girl wife Jordan.
And now Peter, 36, aims to flaunt his new figure for the cameras as the face of Audigier’s hip range, Ed Hardy.
He was the star turn at a plush bash for the French designer on Wednesday at Movida in London’s Mayfair before heading off to dinner with old pal Dani Behr at swanky eatery Nobu.
A source revealed: “Christian had a meeting with Peter and they agreed for Peter to become the face of Ed Hardy in Europe. Christian is launching a new store in London this year and Peter will be a big part of that promotion.”
And the heartbroken star hinted that his split from Jordan, 31 – real name Katie Price – helped him clinch the big-money deal.
Peter, who appears with Jordan on their ITV2 show Katie and Peter: Stateside, admitted: “It’s amazing how stress keeps you trim. I might be looking all right, but I’m not feeling okay.
“Given the circumstances, I’m not doing as badly as I could be. My favourite tipple is whisky on the rocks but I’m not having a lot because I want to be fresh for work. And I don’t really feel like drinking.”
He told TV Biz at the bash how the break-up had taken its toll – particularly being separated from his children, Junior, four, and Princess, two, as well as his disabled stepson Harvey, seven.
Peter was devastated when Junior was caught on camera sobbing when he had to go back to Jordan this week.
The distraught Aussie confessed: “It’s so hard every time I have to leave the kids. That picture of my boy not wanting to leave really got to me – I was really emotional after seeing that.” But the deal with Audigier is set to throw Peter back into the limelight.
Audigier, 51, is so big he was planning on collaborating with Michael Jackson. Speaking before the superstar’s death, he said: “It’s the merging of the King of Pop with the king of fashion.
“Something explosive is going to happen.”
And this week, Audigier – who plans to move his company into the property where Jackson died – told how he had also been working on some creations for the star’s This Is It tour.
He said: “It was actually Michael’s dream. And it was kind of royalist – a mix of the real Michael Jackson and his alter-ego as the King of Pop.”
As well as the modelling deal, Peter has signed a million pound record contract with independent label Conehead.
His first single, Behind Closed Doors, from his new album is out next month.
The Mysterious Girl star recorded the CD, which features an emotional song about his stepson Harvey, during his three-month stay in LA this year – before his marriage fell apart.
Peter said about the Conehead deal: “I signed with them because they’ve listened and took on board what I want.
“It’s not about the money, but some of the big record labels didn’t offer me anywhere near what Conehead have.”
