Former Atomic Kitten star Kerry Katona has spoken candidly about the terrifying abuse she's previously received from online trolls.
The 41-year-old expressed that the targeted mistreatment was so bad, she even had a troll message her: "Are you not dead yet?"
Not only this, but Kerry also revealed that unpleasant followers have often labelled her as an "unfit mother". But the singer insists she no longer cares for their opinions and tries her best to not pay them any attention.
Writing in her column for New Magazine, the reality star said she can relate to football presenter Alex Scott who was recently targeted by trolls online.
The star penned: "Trolling is one of the most horrific things anyone can go through and I really feel for our kids.
"I've been called an 'unfit mother' and been asked: 'Are you not dead yet?'"
She added: "You do start to believe the horrible comments after a while. But for me, I got to a certain point in my life, when I was 36, where I told myself: 'Other people's opinions of me do not matter, they do not define me as a person.'"
Altogether, Kerry currently has five children; Molly, 20, and Lilly, 18, who she shares with former husband Westlife star Brian McFadden and Heidi, 14, and Max, 13, with ex partner Mark Croft.
The star also has a daughter, seven-year-old Dylan-Jorge with her ex George Kay, who passed away in 2019.
Recently, blonde bombshell Kerry appeared on hit TV show Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins and won over viewers with her boldness when discussing her past abuse she had previously faced in her relationship with George.
It comes just weeks after football presenter Alex Scott, 36, spoke openly about about the target abuse she received online following the rumours that she was likely to take over hosting duties on A Question Of Sport.
Talking to Women's Health she expressed: "Being an athlete, you’re used to criticism, and I could always take that as a footballer in terms of: ‘I don’t think you had a good game.’ But trolling – it’s not related to what I can improve.
"I went from being on screen doing a job I love to thinking: ‘I know what’s going to happen as soon as I step off this chair.'"
"I’d go home and it felt like I was all on my own. [I’d think], I’ve got no one to talk to, no one knows what I’m experiencing or going through," she added.
