London, (ANI): katie price a.k.a Jordan has been accused of an i-pod rip off, for she's charging almost double the normal Apple price on some of her personalised iPod products. Kate's iPod models are customised with her own designs and some even contain her KP crest.

"katie price is going to milk that for every penny because she's greedy but that's not right," the Daily Star quoted Dr Adrian Rogers, from campaign group Family Focus, as saying.
