Financially embattled Kerry Katona takes back husband days after split
16 MARCH 2009
Just three days after announcing the breakdown of her marriage, Kerry Katona's husband Mark Croft was back at her £1.2 million Cheshire home.
On Friday the 28-year-old was in tears outside the property as her new accountant, Frank Cochran - called in to help figure out what's happened to the former Atomic Kitten's £3 million fortune - confirmed the couple's relationship was on the rocks.
At the time of the rupture Kerry insisted: "He's been destroying my life. Mark is dead to me." But on Sunday the pair were spotted kissing and hand-in-hand in a supermarket car park.
The mum of four, who has a lucrative contract as the face of Iceland and reportedly makes £1 million annually, was declared bankrupt last year after being unable to pay an £80,000 tax bill. She reportedly learned of her dire financial state after her children were turned away from nursery school because the fees had gone unpaid for six weeks.
A pal of the ex-singer revealed that when Kerry learned the mess her accounts were in she was "livid", but says: "Since then Kerry has calmed down and wants her financial advisors to complete their investigation before she decides anything."
