Kerry Katona is divorcing George Kay, her husband of 11 months. The former Atomic Kitten singer announced through her spokesperson that their marriage is ending.

In a statement, her representative said: "It is with deep sadness that Kerry announces the end of her marriage to George Kay. Her focus now will be on her gorgeous children."

According to reports, Kay was allegedly arrested for assaulting her on Saturday and possessing a Taser gun.

Newspaper reports claim that Katona "sustained bruising to her face and arms" following an altercation with Kay at the couple's home in East Sussex on Saturday.

A spokesman for Sussex Police said: "On Saturday police were called to an address in Crowborough after a report that a woman had been assaulted. A 35-year-old man was arrested at the address on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm to a 35-year old woman, and of unlawful possession of a Taser."

The couple wed in September 2014 and are parents to 17-month-old daughter Dylan-Jorge.

Katona has children Molly, aged 14 and Lilly-Sue, aged 12 with former husband Brian McFadden, and Heidi, aged 8 and Max, aged 7 from her marriage to Mark Croft.
