LONDON (Reuters Life!) - The three-year marriage of glamour model Katie Price and singer Peter Andre ended on Tuesday after a hearing lasting just over a minute at London’s High Court.

The couple, who met while filming the jungle reality TV show “I’m a Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!,” were on a list of 21 seeking a “quickie divorce.”

After the names were read out, District Judge Bradley pronounced decrees nisi and later revealed that both parties had cross-petitioned on the grounds of unreasonable behavior, the Press Association reported.

The judge said none of the papers involved would be released because Andre’s lawyers had made an application to keep them confidential until a full hearing into whether they should be made public.

Price, 31, also known as Jordan, and singer Andre, 36, married in 2005 and went on to star together in a series of reality TV shows.

They have two children together — son Junior, four, and daughter Princess Tiaamii, two.

Price also has a son, Harvey, aged seven, with footballer Dwight Yorke.
