London: English singer Kerry Katona and ex-husband Mark Croft are battling it out against each other for the custody of their children.
Atomic Kitten band member Katona and cabbie Mark Croft are busy making dossiers to prove that the other isn’t fit for the job.
Katona and Croft may expose their marriage’s darkest secrets in a bid to get custody of three-year-old daughter Heidi and two-year-old son Max.
While Croft has Katona’s video in which she is seen caught snorting cocaine in the bathroom of the family home, Katona has planned of hitting him back with branding Croft as a former coke dealer who is currently pumping himself up on muscle-boosting steroid drugs, reports News of The World.
“This is all-out war and it’s going to be very dirty. Kerry used to be in Atomic Kitten and now she’s going nuclear,” a source said.
“Both of them are desperate to hang on to the kids and prepared to reveal all the most damaging lapses, lies and infidelities to do it,” the source added.
The judge called in the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS) to evaluate the pair.
The hearing is planned for November and the result may get declared in January.
“CAFCASS will spend time with Kerry and the kids then assess how Mark manages. But it’s already got really nasty,” a source said.
“Kerry accused Mark of once being a drug dealer when he drove a taxi in Warrington. That made him absolutely furious. He says it’s utter rubbish and told Kerry to prove it or shut up. So now she’s trawling for evidence.
“And they’re not speaking to each other at all. They send texts about the kids and that’s all. This is one almighty fight and I don’t have a clue that’ll come out on top. They both have so much ammunition,” the source added.
