Kerry Katona’s family have called claims by controversial campaigning group Fathers4Justice disgusting after the death of her ex-husband George Kay.
Fathers4Justice founder Matt O’Connor tweeted that Kerry had ‘blood on her hands’ over George’s death – believed to have been caused by a cocaine overdose.
O’Connor claimed the celebrity refused him access to their daughter Dylan-Jorge.
But Kerry’s oldest daughter Molly, aged 17, said his comments were “disgusting” and “inaccurate and extremely insensitive”.
Ex-rugby ace George collapsed at home and was taken to hospital but doctors were unable to save him.
After the news became public, O’Connor tweeted: “Tragic news about the passing of George Kay who came to Fathers4Justice for help. He was heartbroken after @KerryKatona7 denied him access to daughter Dylan-Jorge.. She has blood on her hands.”
Molly responded: “How dare you make statements this disgusting at such a vulnerable time, your accusations are inaccurate and extremely insensitive. Vile words from a vile person you should be ashamed.”
O’Connor, whose group is known for headline-grabbing stunts where dads dressed as superheroes scaled tall buildings, told a news outlet: “George was clearly unwell but the heartbreak of not seeing his daughter will have exacerbated the problem. He could have had supervised contact but they chose to cut him off instead.”
Earlier this year he attacked David Beckham over his sister’s baby, and the group has previously pelted Tony Blair with purple powder and scaled Buckingham Palace.
Kerry, the former Atomic Kitten star married George five months after she gave birth to their daughter in 2014.
But in October 2015 Kerry revealed she had split from the former Warrington Wolves after an incident.
Friends said at the weekend that Kerry had never stopped George seeing their daughter.
