Alex Reid has admitted he and wife Katie Price were left "miffed" after Peter Andre reported his daughter's black eye to lawyers.
Australian singer Pete was concerned when two-year-old Princess arrived at his house with apparent bruising on her face earlier this month.
After Pete contacted his lawyers, who then got in touch with Katie's entourage, cagefighter Alex decided to call police to clear the matter up.
Later reports suggested the "bruising" was smudged eye make-up.
"Princess left our care in perfect, happy health, so we were extremely concerned to be told she had bruises and two black eyes," Alex wrote in his weekly column.
"As anyone in their right mind would do, I immediately contacted the police.
"After examining Princess, the police sergeant told us there was no bruising on Princess that a two-year-old wouldn't have from simply being a toddler, and she definitely didn't have any black eyes.
"Despite being relaxed, me and Kate were very miffed about the experience."
