Kerry Katona's Ex-Husband Brian McFadden Supports Her Through George Kay Marriage Split

Brian McFadden has revealed he’s been supporting his ex-wife, Kerry Katona, through her recent marriage split.


Following weeks of speculation about their relationship, Kerry confirmed earlier this month that she and George Kay had split, after one year of marriage.

The former Westlife singer has now told OK! magazine that he’s been offering Kerry a helping hand through the difficult break-up.

He said: “I’ve told her that I’m there for if she needs me.

“Molly and Lilly [Kerry and Brian’s two daughters] are spending a bit of time at mine at the moment but I’ve said that I’ll look after all her kids if she needed a bit of a break… she’s just getting on with it, as she always does."

It’s good to hear that Brian and Kerry have cleared up their differences, as relations between them haven't always quite so friendly.

When Brian was living in Australia, back in 2013, a furious Kelly told reporters: “I never had a dad myself and I think any kind of man who moves to the other side of the world and leaves their children is terrible - I don't think it's acceptable.

“I've got no animosity towards Brian, I just hate the fact he's abandoned his kids. Unfortunately that relationship doesn't exist."

Kerry and Brian during happier times

Two months after her divorce from Brian was finalised, Kerry married Mark Croft in 2007, with whom she has two children.

She then married George in September 2014, but things haven’t gone smoothly for them ever since.

In the months leading up to their split, reports claimed that George had been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery, following the alleged theft of jewels said to be worth tens of thousands of pounds.

Weeks later, he was reportedly arrested again, this time for assaulting Kerry, and illegally possessing a Taser.
