Despite earning a healthy injection of cash by appearing on Celebrity Big Brother, the past few years has left Kerry Katona vowing never to walk down the aisle again…
The bubbly reality TV star is ‘relieved’ she is finally free from her second husband, Taxi driver Mark Croft’s firm grip but the grueling settlement has certainly taken it’s toll.
Mark, 41, and Kerry went their separate ways after five years of marriage but having aÂ reasonably modest occupation her ex did his best to take her to the cleaners.
With her divorce settlements already tallied at 2, with WestlifeÂ Brian McFadden being her first, the 31 year old star thinks she would be mad to go through another.
‘I was sad when my marriage to Brian McFadden was over but this time I’m not at all,’ spills an honest Kerry.
‘It’s such a massive relief and a weight off my shoulders knowing I’m no longer married to Mark Croft.’
The news she’s now officially free and single is the second great headline to come from this rather testing year, the first was scooping second ranking in CBB a few weeks back.
But after battling through bipolar disorder and facing the brink of bankruptcy and now having her reality TV show The Next Chapter axed, Kerry has had a tough time of late and embraced her newly discovered single roots.
But after she was caught cosying up to ex Corrie teenager Lucien Laviscount in the Big Brother house and were later snapped shacking up for the night together in a five star hotel, rumours were ignited that she has bagged herself a toy boy.
However the young mum-of-four laughed off the insinuation that she may be settling down with a 19-year-old ‘boy.’
‘He’s just a little kid,’ she says. ‘When his balls have dropped and he’s gone through puberty then maybe he’ll be a good dad.
‘One things for sure. I’m never getting married again – I can’t afford the divorce!’
That’s the spirit Kerry!
