Kerry Katona’s Ex-Husband George Kay
Kerry and George met as teenagers at Padgate High School in Warrington where they were childhood sweethearts. They rekindled their romance in 2012, when George worked as a security guard on Kerry’s tour for her autobiographer, Too Much Too Young. They married in September 2014, five months after she gave birth to their daughter, Dylan-Jorge. The couple later divorced in 2017.
George had a long history of drug abuse and had battled mental health issues for many years. In October 2015 she confirmed that they had split, alleging he had assaulted her. He was arrested by police but charges were later dropped due to lack of evidence; Kerry had a restraining order out against him and it as thought he hadn’t seen his daughter in over a year.
Kerry discussed their marriage breakdown on Loose Women in 2018. She cited her and George’s mental health problems as the main reason behind their split.
“I think you get your relationship, at first you all pretend to be something you’re not and you fall in love then you see someone’s true colours, even my true colours come out as well,” she said.
“When someone has mental health problems, as I have – which I’ve been ridiculed for for eight years – it’s hard to walk away from somebody and I loved him, I didn’t want to walk away, I wanted to help him.”
Kerry added: “I’m not gonna sit here and place blame, I take responsibility, I allowed that situation to happen, I allowed that into my own life and I’ve only got myself to blame. I have to take them actions and deal with them and move on.”
