Brian McFadden to challenge Kerry Katona for custody of their daughters
The former Westlife star is said to be planned to act after Kerry’s behaviour has become increasingly erratic over the last few weeks, including a slurred interview on This Morning last week.
A source told the Sun that Brian was “livid” when he heard about the interview and watched it in “complete disbelief”.
The former couple currently share custody of daughters, seven year old Molly and six year old Lilly-Sue, but as Brian lives with fiancee Delta Goodrem in Sydney, the girls spend most of their time with Kerry and her new husband Mark Croft (and Kerry & Mark’s two younger children) in Cheshire. The source added that Brian hopes to move the girls out to Australia full-time to protect them from Kerry.
In related news, Brian told New magazine recently that they had children too young.
The pair were just 21 and Kerry’s girl group Atomic Kitten on the cusp of success when she got pregnant with daughter Molly.
Brian told the magazine: “I don’t think I was ready to have children when they first came along, but when it happens you automatically have to grow up.
“You go from everything being about you and enjoying your life and having fun and no responsibility to having all this responsibility coming onto you.”
He added that Delta, who he is planning to marry next month, is more like a “big sister or an auntie” to his daughters: “She lets them get away with things I wouldn’t, so they kind of turn to her when they want something or do something bad. The three of them together are quite naughty.”
