UK train-wreck, often referred to by PerezHilton.com as the British Britney (head shave era), Kerry Katona, really is getting a divorce.
The former singer started a host of rumours last week when she changed her Facebook status from “Married” to “Single”. Some thought it a genuine error, while others thought she was telling the world that she was splitting from her husband, former cab driver, Mark Croft.
Katona has revealed that the split and the situation between her and her current husband are far worse than first thought. She says that he has essentially been stealing money from her and that she has lost trust in the marriage and so wants to call it quits.
The pair had a huge row over their finances. Katona is the breadwinner and since her singing career ended she has kept herself, her husband (who she employed as her driver) and her children afloat with various magazine deals and TV appearances and more than one reality show.
The star reportedly thinks Croft’s been swindling her after she discovered he’d paid £455,000 into his Modena Developments firm without her knowing. A source revealed ”He stuck it under her nose and said: ‘Here you go, we’ve got the money. So just stop bloody worrying about it” ”All of Kerry’s earnings are paid to her company KK Media, and she had no idea how such a sum came to be in Modena’s account. It shook her faith in Mark badly and she asked him to leave.”
Katona has also reportedly told friends ”This has to end. Mark’s bled me dry. He won’t take another penny of my money.”
According to MrPaparazzi.com, earlier today Katona appeared on the driveway of her home with her accountant (yep), who read a statement to the press about her split from her husband Croft.
In the statement Frank Cochran, from company Celebrity Financial Planning, announced that he’s been appointed as her new financial adviser, and then he went on to say “Miss Katona has been very upset by the breakdown of her marriage to Mark Croft and as a consequence she has asked for independent financial advice. Miss Katona has appointed our company to answer all enquiries re her finances. We will be working to remove her bankruptcy order ASAP. If anyone has any information considered useful I would appreciate them contacting me at their earliest convenience.”
This woman is a serial train-wreck, but I was hoping this time she had really found love. Such sad news for Kerry.
