Who is Harvey Price’s dad Dwight Yorke and when did he and Katie Price split? – The Sun

FORMER Aston Villa and Man Utd legend Dwight Yorke was one of the most lethal forwards of his generation.

Yorke famously dated Katie Price and the pair have a child together – but Dwight is estranged from his son Harvey…

Who is Harvey Price's dad Dwight Yorke?

Yorke is a pro footballer turned footie pundit.

Yorke began his career at Villa and was first discovered by the late Graham Taylor in 1989 while the club was on a tour of the West Indies, in his home country of Trinidad and Tobago.

He stayed at the club for nine years until he moved to Manchester United in 1998, where he starred in the 1999 treble-winning side.

A speedy striker, Yorke was something of a super-sub and netted a number of key goals off the bench.

In 2002 he signed to Blackburn Rovers for £2million and stayed for two years before spending one year at Birmingham City.

Three years later he headed Down Under to Sydney FC, where he was reportedly picking up a wage of $1million a season.

He went on to play for Sunderland in 2006 where his ex-teammate Roy Keane was manager at the time.

Dwight retired from football at the end of the 2008/2009 season and went into punditry.

When did Dwight Yorke split from Katie Price?

Dwight Yorke dated Katie Price briefly in 2001.

Their relationship was brief, as it has been reported that Dwight cheated on Katie while she was 14 weeks pregnant.

Harvey was born in May 2002, the year after they'd split.

The ex-Aston Villa and Manchester United forward initially denied Harvey was his, but the claims were proven wrong with a DNA test.

Why doesn't Dwight Yorke see Harvey Price?

Katie has repeatedly slammed her ex for not wanting to see their disabled son. 

In her book Love, Lipstick and Lies she described how Dwight met Harvey after his 10th birthday – but only because her mum rang his manager.

She wrote: "It wasn’t a friendly meeting and I didn’t hear from Dwight afterwards. It’s such a shame. All I can say is that he is missing out on a very special little boy.

"Personally, I think he is scared of seeing Harvey…Dwight should try. He would get so much love in return."

As well as Harvey, Yorke has a son called Orlando who was born in 2007.

And in October 2019, Price threatened to confront Harvey’s dad by turning up unannounced at his house on camera with their son.

She told the camera: "What I would like to do is turn up to his dad's place – Dwight Yorke's – ring on the doorbell and be there with Harvey, for him to see Harvey.

"That's what I would like to do and I will do that. I think Dwight should start entering Harvey's life, it's been years."

In January 2021, Price made the heart-wrenching decision to put Harvey into care.

Katie, 42, told The Sun: “It breaks my heart. I don’t want him to think I’m just getting rid of him.”

What is Dwight Yorke's net worth?

Yorke was forced to attend an insolvency meeting after falling into debt in 2018.

In 2017 he also faced financial troubles but a petition against him was dropped after his debts fell to below £5,000.

As a result he was forced to put the Cheshire mansion he shared with his ex Katie Price on the market.

And in March 2018, he was forced to knock £100,000 off the £2.25 million asking price. 

A source told The Sun's Bizarre column: "Dwight’s been desperately trying to get his finances back on track over the past year as his company’s assets dwindled to just £2.

They added: “When you think of how successful Dwight was as a player, it is really quite difficult to believe it has come to this.”

 

In December 2018, the former Trinidad and Tobago international forked out £1.5million after being the subject of a bankruptcy petition from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

Since hanging up his boots in 2009, Yorke has worked as a pundit for Sky Sports, while he also briefly held the position of assistant manager for the Trinidad and Tobago national team.

As of 2021, his net worth is estimated by CelebrityNetWorth to be £18.3million.
