Katie Price insists she is "not in love" with new man
The former glamour model has been dating the Argentinean hunk since February after meeting him at Sir Elton John`s Oscars party in Los Angeles but although they are getting on great she insists the relationship is still in its fledgling stages.
Speaking in her reality TV show `Katie`, she revealed: "I`m not in love with the guy, it`s only early days. I`m independent, I don`t rely on anyone. It`s hard for a man, they need to gain my respect. I like to test and see how far I can go. Leo bosses me about all the time."
Although she isn`t ready to say she loves Leandro, Katieinsists the thing she likes most about him is the fact he is a real man.
The 32-year-old beauty - who was previously married to Peter Andre and is in the process of divorcing second husband Alex Reid - added: "I`ve realised what a man`s man is. A man`s man is somebody who can do DIY, fix your car, cook, change a light bulb. Leo is a man`s man. Hard to believe he`s only 26."
Katie recently went to Argentina with Leandro to meet his family and while they were in the South American country they were involved in a car accident that killed two horses.
Although she has said she isn`t in love with the model, the TV star wrote "Es todo un tierno. Lo amo" which roughly translates as "It`s all tender. I love him", on her twitter page in March.
