AFTER being declared bankrupt this week, Katie Price has very little to celebrate but it didnt stop her painting the town red.
The bedraggled reality star, once the queen of red carpet events, hit the bottle at an All Bar One in central London with pals, including a mystery man.
Katie threw herself into the night, at one point stopping to FaceTime her son Harvey, during which she screamed out the words to Jay-Z and Alicia Keys classic Empire State of Mind.
Onlookers tell me she was hammered and clearly determined to forget all about her financial woes, with no sign of on-off boyfriend Kris Boyson in tow.
A fellow drinker said: Katie was all over the place. She obviously doesnt care about what happened.
She was saying this is actually a good thing for her and that shes planning a big Christmas.
It was a long way from her days surrounded by celebrities. Then she decided to call Harvey and was dancing around on her mobile phone while singing to him.
Later in the night, she was pictured cosying up to a mystery man, wrapping an arm around him and leaning in after a long evening on the booze.
Im told Katie has been hitting the bottle hard most of this summer as she refused to face up to her problems, which have reached a head in the past few days. Once worth an estimated 40million, Katie was declared insolvent this week after she failed to keep up with repayments on her spiralling debts.
And a day later she was on the losing end of another legal battle when she was ordered to pay her ex Alex Reid 150,000 after he brought a case against her for leaking revenge porn.
Maybe its time Katie accepted her showbiz days are over. Even if I quietly admit it, Ill miss her antics.
Let Rob entertain you
ROBBIE Williams ticked another item off his bucket list on Thursday night when The Boy In The Dress a new musical which he wrote the soundtrack to opened in Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Speaking at its opening night this week, he said: I would like it to win an Academy Award, let alone the theatre. Dream big.

Meanwhile, David admitted he couldnt have dreamed of the success the book has gone on to have.
He said: The thing is with anything creative, you just do it and hope its good.
But youd have to be delusional to think, One day its going to be a musical.
The Britains Got Talent judge has released several best-selling kids books, but isnt forcing his own son Alfred to read them.
He said: I just let him choose what books to read. But my family enjoy my books.
Shaggy cooks up a plan
REGGAE legend Shaggy has hired a private chef to stop his band getting the munchies during recording sessions.
The Jamaican-born singer said his band were partial to smoking weed and revealed his food bill had gone through the roof since he started working on his next record. Shaggy, named Virgin Holidays chief Caribbean officer, said: Im in my studio now and you dont want to smell the aroma in here.
My band are high and always smiling. The thing is my food bill has gone up, but I got a chef to keep them going.
Im surprised they get any work done at all.
Hat’s off to Ellie
ELLIE Goulding gave pop star Sia a run for her money by almost obscuring her entire face with this quirky hat.
Im no fashion expert, but quite frankly it looked like she had a lampshade on her head during the gig in Dallas.

The singer donned a half-black, half-white outfit for a Salvation Army gig
To her credit though, she was performing at a fundraiser for the Salvation Army to help those in need.
Ahead of her set, Ellie posed with the American Football teams cheerleading squad and even tried out some of their formations.
Luckily shed taken off her daft hat so she could see what she was doing.
She must have had a lightbulb moment hours later, as even she realised the comparisons to a piece of furniture were fair.
Having a laugh at her own expense, the singer posted the famous Anchorman quote, I love lamp on her Instagram story.
She might want to think twice next time she has a bright fashion idea.
