Kerry Katona has admitted that she is relieved that her ex George Kay died in fear that he could have killed her.
In her first interview since Kay & # 39; s death from a drug overdose on July 6 at the age of 39, former Atomic Kitten singer, 38, said his death had her daughter Dylan-George, 5, & # 39 ; rescued & # 39; of growing up & witness the psychotic episodes of her father. & # 39;
Kerry also revealed the moment she discovered his death, and stated that when she saw his father calling her, she assumed that George was on her way to her home to abduct their child & # 39;
Kerry Katona, 39, has admitted that she is relieved that her ex George Kay died in fear that he could have killed her
Speaking to the Sunday People about George – with whom she was married from 2014 to 2017 – Kerry said: & You must remember how he endured us. To be honest it is almost a relief that he died when he died, when DJ is at this age.
& # 39; If he had not died, it would have been me. My mother says she just waited for the police call to say he had killed me. & # 39;
Kerry explained that she could never fully relax unless he was sent back to prison or if he was dead.
The blonde also explained what went through her when George & # 39; s father called her about his death.
& # 39; My first thought was that he came to the house to kidnap DJ. Then I received a message from his brother Ash, in which he told me to call him and suddenly I just knew. I knew George was dead. & # 39;
Kerry admitted that her first reaction was just & # 39; screaming & # 39 ;, and her other children Max, Heidi, Molly, and Lily & # 39; throwing herself on the floor in complete shock & # 39; – despite being petrified & # 39; from George.
When it came to little DJ, Kerry explained that she sat down and told her that & # 39; dad had fallen asleep and woke up in heaven. & # 39;
Kerry also admitted that she had tried to rent a car to see her mother, but was refused because George had rented a car in her name and had not paid the fine.
She also touched his fight with drugs, and admitted that she & # 39; furious & # 39; was up to him that he could not leave & # 39; those s *** & & # 39 ;.
A few weeks before his death, George shared an image of himself and Dylan-Jorge on his Facebook page next to the caption: & # 39; Dad always loves you xxx. & # 39;
Reportedly, a house ban had been issued that kept George away from Kerry at the time of his death.
The couple initially met during their teenage years at Padgate High School in Warrington, where they were childhood favorites.
The former couple developed their romance during their thirties while Kerry was on her book tour for Too Much Too Young and George worked as her guard.
During their three-year marriage, George fought mental health problems and Kerry later claimed that he had been violent against her during their relationship.
She divorced him earlier in October 2015 after 13 months together and a month later he appeared in court accusing him of hitting their house after allegedly armed with a Taser-style device and a knife.
However, he was later acquitted after prosecutors had shown that they did not have enough evidence to get a conviction.
A few months later, the couple led to reconciliation rumors for the first time when they were discovered with their daughter. The couple was determined to make their relationship work and appeared in the reality show In Therapy to discuss their problems.
They then renewed their wedding vows in November 2016.
Kerry said shortly after the reconciliation OK! magazine that George & # 39; not a monster & # 39; and that they both had & # 39; fiery temperament & # 39 ;.
She explained: & # 39; There was never a restraining order that was wrongly reported. I never felt threatened. I have not been an angel in this either. I can get angry and angry too. & # 39;
Kerry is a loving mother for five. She has two daughters with former Westlife partner Brian McFadden – Molly, 17 and Lilly-Sue. She also shares Heidi, 12, and Maxwell, 11, with second husband Mark Croft.
Shortly after George's death, Fathers4Justice had attacked Kerry on Twitter and claimed that she had & # 39; blood on her hands & # 39 ;.
But Lilly-Sue and other social media users reacted furiously and called the tweet & # 39; disgusting & # 39; and & # 39; nasty & # 39 ;.
Kerry threw her support behind her teenage daughter when she informed the campaigners that they & # 39; never knew George like her family & # 39; and that her mother risked her neck & # 39; on numerous occasions & # 39 ;.
The teen's tweets are: & # 39; @ F4JOfficial I find your tweets repulsive and insensitive. You have to remind yourself that he had children who are using social media at an age.
& # 39; You didn't know George like us and to have the guts to talk about my mother who had lurking her neck for that man on countless occasions where no decent person is despicable.
& # 39; We are in mourning and people like you are toxic. Using death for your own gain and to increase your support is disgusting. I send love and illuminate your way because it is clearly needed. & # 39;
Kerry made sure to & # 39; like & # 39; and then retweeted the passionate tweets from Lilly-Sue, and did the same with other tweets that supported her in light of Fathers4Justice's comments.
