Jodie Marsh had ex James Placido 'removed' from her house prior to harassment arrest

Jodie Marsh had ex-husband James Placido "removed" from her house in April prior to her arrest over harassment claims.

The 37-year-old star is in the midst of a row with her former husband over money she says is owed to her father, and was charged with harassment without violence on Tuesday (11.10.16).

Now, a spokesperson for the model has said she discovered a "number of things" about her former flame after she had him "removed" from her house in April.

The source said in a statement: "Jodie removed James Placido from her house back in April 2016, since his removal Jodie has discovered a number of things about him.

"Jodie was arrested four months ago and charged last night with the offence of harassment for texts she sent to Mr Placido.

"Jodie completely denies the charges of harassment and looks forward to going to court, not only to prove her innocence but so that the full truth can finally come out.

"We have not further comment at the moment, other than Jodie has some very exciting projects coming up and she is forever grateful to her loyal fans for all their support at this time."

Jodie has had an ongoing feud with her estranged spouse since their split and previously revealed she is doing "much better" now they called time on their romance.

She said: "Considering the hell he put me through, I'm happier now. I'm over the shock of what happened and think, 'Thank God I'm not with him.' I'm much better off without that. It's a relief. I don't need a guy to be happy in life.

"I can't say [what caused the split], but put it this way, I would have been happier if he'd cheated on me. I could have coped with that. My fans know me. They know that I wouldn't have been madly head over heels in love with somebody, for it to end in an instant, without a very very very big reason.

"I wouldn't be telling people, 'This is my soul mate', for it to end overnight so suddenly. There's obviously a massive, massive reason. I genuinely thought that was it for life."

Jodie is due to appear in court in Chelmsford on November 9.
