A model is in a lot of trouble after being seen topless at a beach in the Maldives, according to police.

38-year-old Katie Price of Brighton, the United Kingdom, went to the Maldives to enjoy the warm weather and the spectacular beaches.

While at one of the beaches, she was photographed walking around topless, enjoying the sun and showing off her 32GG breasts.

After the naked photos of Price went viral, police launched an investigation against her for violating Sharia law.

The Maldives is a Muslim nation and its laws are based on the teachings of Islam. The Maldives Police Service said that if Price is found guilty of public nudity, she faces a large fine or even a prison sentence.

Price, her husband Kieran Hayler, 30, and her five children, Harvey, 14, Junior, 11, Princess, 9, Jett, 3 and Bunny, 2, are staying at the newly-opened Kandima resort in the Maldives.

The government wants tourists to observe local customs.

“Local laws reflect the fact that Maldives is an Islamic country. Serious violations of local laws may lead to a prison sentence. Public observance of any religion other than Islam is prohibited.

“You should respect local traditions, customs, laws and religions at all times, and be aware of your actions to ensure that they don’t offend, especially during the holy month of Ramadan or if you intend to visit religious areas.

“Dress is generally informal, but you should be sensitive to local dress standards when visiting non-resort islands. Nudism and topless sunbathing are not allowed anywhere, including on resort islands.

“Same sex relations are illegal, and convicted offenders could face lengthy prison sentences and fines,” the U.K. government warns.
