Kerry Katona reveals she's 'glad' ex-husband George Kay is dead as she feared he would kill her and kidnap daughter DJ

KERRY Katona has revealed she's "glad" her ex-husband George Kay is dead – as she feared he would KILL her and kidnap their daughter DJ.

The former Atomic Kitten star has given her first interview since her former spouse passed away from a drug overdose three weeks ago aged 38.

Kerry, 38, told The Sunday People George's death was inevitable before revealing their relationship was so toxic she feared he would kill her.

As she wept, she told the publication: "George couldn’t be saved. He was always going to die.

“If he hadn’t have died, it would’ve been me.

“My mum says she was just waiting for the call from the police to say he’d killed me.

“And I know myself, I’d never have been able to relax unless he was either back in jail or dead.

“Now he’s dead, there’s a sense of relief.”

The couple married in 2014 but split just 12 months later, with Kerry also securing a restraining order against her ex last year.

George, an ex-rugby player, had a history of mental health issues and drug problems and was found at the Holiday Inn in Runcorn, Cheshire after allegedly eating cocaine.

The couple have daughter Dylan-Jorge – known as DJ together, and Kerry told The Sunday People she had feared her ex would kidnap their little girl.

As she recalled the moment she found out George had died, she said: "My mobile phone rang and it was George’s dad.

“Suddenly I felt this intense anxiety. I thought, either he’s dialled me by mistake, or George is on one.

"So the first thing I did was ring home and tell the kids to lock the door.

“My first thought was that he was coming to the house to kidnap DJ.

“Then I got a message from his brother Ash, telling me to ring him and suddenly I just knew. I knew George was dead.”

Kerry then had to break the news to her five children, including five-year-old DJ.

The star chose to tell her older children – Molly, 17, Lily, 16, Heidi, 12, and Max, 11 – first, getting a friend to take DJ to the supermarket while she broke the news.
