During an interview in May Kerry Katona insisted she'd never physically fought with George Kay


Kerry Katona was open about her marital troubles with George Kay in the months before their split.

But now, in the wake of George’s arrest for allegedly assaulting his wife, some of Kerry’s words about the nature of their rows seem particularly haunting.


Kerry Katona on battle with self harm

Back in May the Atomic Kitten star insisted she’d never got into a physical fight with George and suggested that she’d be quick to walk away if that ever happened.

‘[The rows are] never, ever physical,’ said Kerry, 35. ‘Do you honestly think that if George ever got physical with me I would be sat here right now to tell the tale?

‘He would only have to touch me and I would fall down.’

Kerry even joked during the chat with OK! magazine: ‘Actually it did get physical the other day – George is at home, under the patio!

‘I think words are more dangerous. I have got a pretty lethal tongue.’

The mum-of-five word’s make for sad reading now. It was confirmed on Tuesday night that Kerry and George – who are parents to 17-month-old daughter Dylan-Jorge – are ending their marriage after just a year.

Earlier in the day it was reported that George had been arrested. Police in Sussex confirmed that an incident had taken place in which a 35-year-old man was in possession of a taser and had left a woman with bruising to her face and arms.

Sources tell The Sun that more than one call was made to police and raised voices were heard when it unfolded on Saturday.

It’s also reported that the couple had had an altercation earlier in the day.

Kerry had previously spoken during the candid interview back in May about how ‘devastated’ she would be if her relationship with George ended.

‘I would be absolutely heartbroken if we split up and I would never date again,’ she confessed.

‘I think I would become a lesbian! If it didn’t work out with George I would never get in a serious relationship ever again.’

But it seems that the couple never managed to get their marriage back on track after what Kerry called their ‘really explosive’ rows, which she claimed were frequently about money.

It comes despite the fact that Kerry clearly hoped they could get through the bad patch.

‘It’s not like we have fallen out of love,’ she said. ‘It’s just the situation we’re in.’
