Kerry Katona Splits From Husband George Kay Following Arrest Reports

Kerry Katona has confirmed the end of her marriage to George Kay.


The pair tied the knot just over a year ago, five months after the birth of their daughter, Dylan-Jorge Rose.

However, a spokesperson for Kerry has now announced that their relationship is now over, saying: “It is with deep sadness that Kerry announces the end of her marriage to George Kay. Her focus now will be on her gorgeous children.”

The news of their split comes after reports claiming that George was arrested over the weekend, on suspicion of physically assaulting her while armed with a taser.

A police spokesperson said: “On Saturday police were called to an address in Gorsedene Close, Crowborough, after a report that a woman had been assaulted.

“A 35-year-old man was arrested at the address on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm to a 35-year old woman, and of unlawful possession of a Taser. He was later released on police bail until 24 October while enquiries continue.

“The woman had sustained bruising to her face and arms.”

Kerry has had a tumultuous time since marrying George in September last year, including during the summer, when he was reportedly arrested in conjunction with the theft of tens of thousands of pounds’ worth of jewels.

Reports in July suggested that their marriage was on the rocks, but she insisted this was not the case, writing on Twitter: “Rumors are just that...rumors. People that start them are ignorant and so are the people who believe them!! [sic]”

Kerry has four children from her two prior marriages, to Mark Croft and Brian McFadden.
