Susan Katona failed to declare money she received for magazine interviews


Kerry Katona’s mum has pleaded guilty to wrongly claiming income support.

Susan Katona, who did not appear at the hearing at Runcorn Magistrates’ Court, has been accused of failing to declare money she earned from magazine interviews she gave about her daughter.

Her lawyers admitted she wrongly claimed council tax benefit from July 2006 to March 2007.

The case has been adjourned until 9 June.

Kerry, 27, has not spoken to Susan, 48, for over a year after the pair fell out over the reality TV star’s husband Mark Croft, 37.
