Kerry Katona’s daughter has slammed Fathers 4 Justice after it claimed she has “blood on her hands” following the death of her ex-husband George Kay.
The former rugby player died over the weekend, with unconfirmed reports that he suffered an overdose.
Following his death, the parental rights group’s founder Matt O’Connor sent a tweet suggesting that George was “heartbroken” after Kerry allegedly denied him access to their daughter Dylan-Jorge – claims described as “inaccurate” by Kerry’s family.
“Tragic news about the passing of George Kay who came to Fathers4Justice for help,” O’Connor tweeted on Saturday (July 6).
“He was heartbroken after [Kerry Katona] denied him access to daughter Dylan-Jorge. Katona’s not ‘heartbroken’. She has blood on her hands.”
His comments were widely criticised on social media and were also condemned by Kerry’s oldest daughter Molly McFadden.
Replying to that tweet, Molly accused Matt of being “inaccurate and extremely insensitive”, requesting that he remove the post from social media.
“I suggest take this tweet down,” she said.
“How dare you make statements this disgusting at such a vulnerable time, your accusations are inaccurate and extremely insensitive.
“I truly hope you never find yourself in this kind of situation. Vile words from a vile person you should be ashamed.”
Kerry’s mum Sue added: “Well said [Molly] and so true,” as many others on Twitter also criticised the Fathers 4 Justice post.
Kerry and George began dating in 2012 and got married in September 2014.
Kerry has yet to officially comment on George’s death.
