Tv - Kerry Katona Axes Wedding Plans After Bankruptcy Declaration
British singer/reality Tv star Kerry Katona has been forced to put her wedding on hold after declaring herself bankrupt for the second time.
The Atomic Kitten star filed a petition in Wigan County Court in England on Tuesday (02Jul13) after struggling with money problems for the past 10 months. She previously filed for bankruptcy in 2008 after she was left unable to pay a $133,300 (£86,000) tax bill.
Katona announced her engagement to personal trainer George Kay earlier this year (Apr13) but their plans to walk down the aisle have been postponed after her financial troubles spiralled out of control.
A source tells the Sunday Mirror, "Kerry decided she could not afford the wedding. She is also keen not to be seen living it up and is aware that hosting a wedding where celebrities would be quaffing champagne would look outrageous after the bankruptcy.
"So they have decide to wait until things improve and they are likely to get married next year... Then she spoke to George who was gutted (upset) but understood and has been really supportive."
The wedding will be Katona's third - she was previously married to former Westlife singer Brian MCFadden, who she divorced in 2006, and taxi driver Mark Croft, who she officially split from in 2009.
