2016Kerry Katona's ex-husband George Kay has reportedly died of a suspected drug overdose at the age of 39. She gave birth to their daughter in April 2014 and they were married in September that year.

It's being reported that George was pronounced dead on arrival to hospital yesterday (Saturday 7th July). In the hospital, doctors were still trying to resurect him, but that didn't help.

George has been struggling with mental health issue and drug abuse for many years.

Addressing her 174,000 Twitter followers, Aisleyne penned: "Omg this is so very sad", as she shared an article about George's death.

The source revealed, 'Kerry was told this afternoon that George suffered an overdose and was taken to hospital, but was declared dead on arrival, ' a family friend said.

"Nobody knows what kind of drugs he took and whether it was intentional or whether it was an accident", said an insider. Kerry is heartbroken, he's DJ's dad and she loved him once'.

Kerry and George gave it another go but they split again in 2017, with a source saying at the time: "Tensions reached breaking point about a month ago and it all came to head when George told Kerry that he was exhausted of acting as a nanny to her kids".
