He forces her to miss their daughters’ First Communion

When Brian McFadden recently launched a foul-mouthed rant at Kerry Katona branding her a ‘pig-faced mole’, you’d think their already fractured relationship couldn’t get any worse.

But Now can reveal that Kerry, 29, faces another blow at the hands of her ex-husband as she’s been excluded from one of the most important days of her daughters’ lives: their First Communion.

The couple’s children Molly, eight, and Lilly-Sue, seven, made their Communion in Dublin among Brian‘s family and friends this month.

Brian‘s still raging at Kerry after her comments about him in the papers, so the last thing he wanted is to see her at an important family event, even if she is their mother,’ a source tells Now.

Kerry pushes certain buttons and he knows he’ll explode if they come face to face. So he said he didn’t want to see her anywhere near the church, or at the party afterwards.’

Defiant as ever, Kerry had initially vowed to attend the ceremony in Ireland before changing her mind and staying at her Surrey mansion.

‘She wanted Molly and Lilly-Sue to enjoy their big day and she knows if she saw Brian it’d end in a big row,’ our source adds. ‘So she’s put her children first and has taken a back seat.’

A spokesman for Brian McFadden was unavailable for comment.
