Kerry Katona feared her late husband George Kay would kill her and her daughter Dylan-Jorge.
The reality star opened up about her late husband’s death for the first time on Loose Women today.
Kerry broke down in tears as she described how George used to spit in her face when she handed over their little girl to him.
Kerry said: “I feel guilty DJ didn’t get to see her dad for a year. I’d hand DJ over to her dad, and I would fear I wouldn’t get her back.”
“He would spit in my face and DJ would start to spit in my face. I know if I’d have stayed with George I’d be dead. I know it 100 per cent. Or DJ would.”
George passed away back in July at the age of 39, after suffering a suspected drug overdose.
Kerry said: “He gave me hell when he was alive. He’s better off where he is. He was so unhappy on this earth.”
“He had so many demons, so many issues, we thought when DJ was born he’d change his ways, he had chance after chance. He was never going to change, never going to change.”
“I left George because of what he was doing. I didn’t make him do anything he didn’t want to do. I won’t be blamed for his death,” she said.
“George had very many issues. By the time I’d worked all these issues out, I was already madly in love with him, we had a baby on the way.”
“We’d known each other since we were 14. I always fancied him, he always fancied me. When the violence started, it’s almost like you’re being groomed. Everyone says, ‘Why didn’t you walk away?’”
Kerry and George started dating back in 2012, got married in 2014, but ended up divorcing in 2017.
