The relationship timeline of Kerry Katona and George Kay
Kerry and George had met as teenagers and they both were from Padgate High School in Warrington. They reconnected in their 30s and at this time George was the security guard on Kerry’s promotional tour for her autobiography, Too Much Too Young. He had just come out of jail after serving six years behind bars for blackmail.
After this chance re-meeting in 2012, the couple began dating. Kerry already had four children from previous relationships namely Molly, 16, and Lilly-Sue, 14, Heidi, 10, and Maxwell, 9. The couple had a daughter in April 2014 and they named her Dylan-Jorge (DJ) and she is five now and they wed in September 2014. But they had major marital issues and Kerry had a restraining order in place against him.
There were several public bitter spats and meltdowns and police also were called in. Besides, George was into drugs and Kerry had accused that he had used foul language and physical violence against her. He had once climbed naked on the rooftop of property in Formby, Liverpool and yelled for help. Police had to intervene and coax him to come down. Kerry said at that time:
“For me that was the nail in the coffin. I just thought, you’re a dad, have some self-control.
“He has had so much power over me for so long, but I can’t let my children go back to that, even if I could.”
The couple split in 2017. She apologized to her older daughters, Molly and Lily. She said:
“I said to the girls, ‘I’m so sorry I’ve let this go on for so long.’
“They said, ‘Why are you standing for this? Just leave him.’”
