Kerry Katona hits back at cruel troll who says cocaine and alcohol binges 'robbed her of her looks'

KERRY Katona hit back at a cruel troll last night who claimed cocaine and alcohol binges "robbed her of her looks".

The mum-of-five, 40, has openly battled drug addiction but has been clean for over ten years.

Kerry struggled with her mental health during her drug addiction in the early noughties, and previously revealed how her cocaine addiction, marriage woes and the loss of her £250,000 Iceland deal made her want to end her own life.

But the former Atomic Kitten star managed to get clean ten years ago when she checked into a fitness bootcamp with her mum before going to rehab in Arizona and she has been clean ever since.

Last night, the inspiring star shared a photo on Instagram of her standing next to her fireplace in her luxurious home.

She modelled a tracksuit from her clothing range, and captioned the snap: "Hands down my favourite outfit😍 from ✨ NEW Joggers, Tee’s & Jumpers now online & you get a signed photo from me with your order today!"

But one mean follower left a nasty message beneath her post.

They said: "Too much sessions ie coke and alcohol has robbed you of your looks no offence"

Kerry spotted the comment and replied saying that beauty shines "from within".

She said: "None taken! Beauty (isn't) skin deep my darling it shines from within! Have a beautiful and blessed day".

In 2019, Kerry exclusively revealed to The Sun that for years she used cocaine as a crutch to help her with mental health issues and personal problems, but that it only made things ten times worse.

She said: “I call it devils dandruff because it's toxic,  it’s manipulating, it gives a false sense of security, it’s not really there for you, it's ruining you."

She went on: "It's an escapism. Taking coke is better than facing the scariest thing going on in your life. You’re constantly chasing that buzz and you don't want the come down. The downers are awful.

"After taking drugs I used to have fits. My eyes would roll back and I’d be frothing at the mouth. I could have died, I could have chocked on my own tongue, my own saliva."

Kerry also revealed how her own drug addiction started at 14 – an age when the strongest thing most kids will have tried is a cigarette.

Kerry continued to take cocaine during her days in Atomic Kitten – using it to help with a fame she says was overwhelming – but managed to get clean after her marriage to Westlife star Brian McFadden in 2002, moving to Ireland with him and having two children, Molly and Lily.

However, their marriage broke down 2004 and Brian went on to date Australian singer Delta Goodrem after their divorce. Kerry had a nervous breakdown and ended up back on cocaine.

Against all the odds, Kerry managed to get clean ten years ago.
