Katie Price has previously revealed she is divorcing third husband Kieran Hayler, after he admitted having a year-long affair with their children's nanny.
But it seems that she has set a deadline for the end of the marriage, reportedly expressing a desire to be divorced 'by the end of the summer'.
In a further development, the former glamour model, 39, is allegedly allowing her adulterous ex to remain living in her mansion with her.
Despite ending the marriage, Katie is said to believe it's best for the two children they share together - Jett, four and Bunny, three - if Kieran remains in close quarters . She also wants him to stick around and work on the farm she has on the grounds of the house.
According to The Mirror, all this is in the name of keeping things 'amicable'.
'The moment he slept with her best friend, that was when it was over,' the source told the publication, referring to Kieran's past indiscretions which saw him having affairs with Katie's close friends Jane Poutney and Chrissy Thomas in 2014.
'She has done everything to make it work but said, she won’t go on living a lie,' the source went on. 'At the moment, they co-habit. But she is unhappy. Being no stranger to divorce, she wants it amicable.
'The kids are their focus and having him around is good for them. He will stay in the house as long as they can stick it out to help maintain the property and care for the kids.'
A rep for Katie has been contacted for comment.
The Sun reported previously that mother-of-five Katie had caught her ex stripper husband sending intimate emails to their nanny Nikki Brown.
The Loose Women panelist said: 'I was gutted. For a year I was basically paying her to f*** my husband.
'They had sex everywhere except in our bedroom, they even did it in the kids’ bathroom.'
Katie, who has been married to Kieran for more than four years said she had cried and screamed 'like a lunatic' as her husband confessed.
She said: 'When I confronted him he denied it at first, even when I said she’d admitted it. I was crying, asking, "How could you do this to me again?"'
But Katie revealed that seconds after he admitted his third affair, Kieran had accused her of cheating by sending texts to other men behind his back.
She said she had but it was merely as a 'self-defence mechanism' as she suspected her was sleeping around.
As well as children Jett, four and Bunny, three, with Kieran, Katie is also mother to Harvey, 15, with Dwight Yorke and Junior, 12 and Princess, 10 with Peter Andre.
This will be Katie's third divorce, she was previously married to Peter Andre from 2005 to 2009 and Alex Reid from 2010-2011.
Katie and Kieran married in the Bahamas in January 2013, just five weeks after they first met, and when Katie was pregnant with Jett.

The couple's seemingly sturdy marriage was rocked to its core in 2014 when Katie discovered Kieran and Jane becoming intimate on a sun-lounger during a group holiday to Cape Verde - after which she knocked out her rival's tooth.
Katie and Jane had known each other for 20 years when the 10-month affair came to light, and the latter was even maid of honour at Katie's weddings to Alex Reid and Kieran.
After Katie rumbled the pair's affair, which started when she was heavily pregnant with Jett and in hospital, and made Kieran undergo a lie detector test, she took to Twitter to announce she was divorcing him.
Days before she had revealed she was six-months pregnant with daughter Bunny.

She later made the shocking revelation that Kieran had bedded another close friend, former glamour model Chrissy Thomas, who Katie had known since she was 18.
The affair revelations continued as Katie detailed in her autobiography Love, Lipstick and Lies that Kieran used to meet Jane in a carpark for unprotected sex and that the pair had romped in her horse stables after she held a onesie themed New Year's party.
After initially announcing she was leaving her third husband via Twitter, Katie had a change of heart after she revealed Kieran was a sex addict who was hooked on the thrill and was seeking professional help for his addiction.
She also she would have left the plasterer turned farmer if she hadn't been pregnant.
