Kerry Katona reportedly travelled 250 miles to console her ex-husband George Kay’s parents after he died of a suspected cocaine overdose on Saturday.

According to The Sun, the former Atomic Kitten singer travelled from her East Sussex home on Monday to meet with George’s parents Alan and Hilary in Warrington, Cheshire.

Kay, a former rugby player, was found collapsed at his home in Warrington and later died in hospital from a suspected cocaine overdose.

Prior to her 250 mile journey, Katona was accused of being responsible for Kay’s death, after Fathers4Justice founder Matt O’Connor claimed she denied him access to his daughter Dylan-Jorge.

Following Kay’s death, O’Connor wrote in a tweet: 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. Katona’s not ‘heartbroken’. She has blood on her hands. Matt O’C #RIP

Katona’s daughter Molly responded to the tweet by saying: "I suggest take this tweet down.

"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."

O’Connor had previously told The Sun that Kay’s mental health was deteriorating after the family stopped him from seeing his daughter.

"The last time I spoke to George he was in a bad way,” he said. When fathers have problems they are banned from seeing their children whereas when mothers like Katie Price and Kerry Katona have problems, they get sympathy from the public and dealt with very differently.

“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. Your mental state is going to suffer. When you’re alive but can’t see your children it’s like a living bereavement. It’s a tragedy for his daughter.”
