Kerry Katona has opened up about the agony of her split with ex-hubby Brian McFadden.
Kerry and Brain tied the knot in 2002 but it was days before their wedding that the former Westlife star got carried away by a lapdancer.
“That killed it for me. I loved Brian and I trusted him. I remember thinking: ”But he’’s the fat one from Westlife. Why would he do this to me?”” the News of the World quoted Katona, as saying.
By then Brian and Kerry had become parents to Molly, now eight, and Kerry soon fell pregnant with Lilly-Sue, now seven.
Kerry recollected: “I thought we could work through it, but after Lilly was born, Brian told me he didn”t love me. I didn”t know it then but he”d met Delta.”
In 2004 Brian, 30, left Kerry, 29.
She said: “I didn”t fight. I saw the way he looked at Delta. He had never looked at me that way – I knew he had gone.”
When Kerry arranged for the children to meet their father, who had just flown back to London, her heart broke as she saw Brian with Delta.
She said: “I remember thanking God I”d dressed up because this vision with a perfect figure, white shiny teeth, and a beautiful complexion was next to him. She was about a foot taller than me and I felt like a piece of rubbish.
“I was so nervous all I said was: ”Hiya Love, are you all right?” This to the woman who had taken my husband.”
According to Kerry, Brian, who now lives in Sydney with Delta, 25, rarely meets his daughters.
She said: “He phones the girls about five times a year – but Lilly doesn”t really know who he is. I”ve never told them what really happened.”
Kerry added: “Brian has a new life in Australia now. I”m not bitter. I”m just sad for him. He’’s missing out on two amazing little girls.
“A couple of times his mum tried to go for legal custody, but never Brian.”
