Brit singer and TV presenter Kerry Katona spoke out against rumors claiming she used drugs, despite being twelve weeks pregnant. The former Atomic Kitten behaved erratically during a recent interview on the UK’s GMTV. Rumors swirled that Kerry was a “cokehead,” which Kerry vehemently denied.

Kerry claimed her manic behavior is a direct effect of her bi-polar disorder:
It’sthe bi-polar. I’m often up and down. I think that’s why some peoplethink I’m on coke. One minute you’re “Grrrrrr!’ then the next you’redown. I find it sick that people think I’d take drugs while pregnant.
Kerry and husband Mark Croft suffered a tough year: a home invasion, rumors of marriage difficulties, and a near miscarriage; despite the difficulties, Kerry affirmed the family, including daughters Heidi Elizabeth, 9 months, Molly Marie, 6, and Lilly-Sue, 4, is great.
I haven’t had a turbulent year, everything’s been fine. I’m dead happy. I’m happier than Larry, whoever Larry is.
Kerry addressed her near-miscarriage last September, admitting it was “horrible.”
Thebaby scare was horrible. I didn’t want people to know I was pregnant soearly but someone phoned the hospital pretending to be me and found out.
The next thing I know I’m bleeding heavily and when I had a scan it looked like there was nothing there.
I was told there was an 80% chance I’d miscarried. I was crying,thinking we’d lost the baby but Mark was convinced it was still there.I went back a few days later for another scan and there it was, thisbeautiful heartbeat.
Kerry, 27, admitted to oneproblem she struggles with daily: an addiction to cigarettes. Althoughher pregnancy is fragile, she can’t quit.
I’m trying my best to give up but I wouldn’t say I’ve totally quit — I’ll have the odd one now and then.
Told she’s been exposed for smoking while pregnant in a weeklymagazine, she rolls her eyes at the gossip stories she attracts on adaily basis.
All I ever read is “Kerry’s a cokehead!” and ‘Badmother Kerry went on honeymoon without her kids!’ Next week it’ll be,“Kerry, Queen of the Chavs” caravanning holiday!
The way I see it, if my life seems so troubled and cheers people up then I’ve done a good deed.
Kerry stressed this might be her last child: she and Mark hope for their first boy.
Being an only child and being brought up in foster care, all I ever wanted was a family.
If this one is a boy I will stop. We’d both like a boy, but if heor she is anything like Heidi we’ll be delighted – she’s so good. Idon’t even know I’ve got her.
