Star pays tribute to mother on birthday

Kerry Katona took to Instagram to wish her mom Sue a happy birthday.

Former 40-year-old Atomic Kitten singer is celebrating her mother’s 61st birthday.

Kerry used social media to share a few heartwarming snaps of the couple.

She also used the post as an opportunity to advertise her second hand clothing store on Depop.

Kerry wrote: “Happy 61st birthday, mom @suekatona, love you. The dress is from @monsoon and is for sale on my Depop. “

Kerry and Sue haven’t always had such a positive relationship

Dozens of Kerry’s fans wished Sue a fabulous day, while almost as many complimented Kerry on her stunning floral dress.

Despite her lovely homage to her mother, things between the two weren’t always ideal.

Kerry previously said it was her mother who first sparked her previous struggles with drug addiction.

What did Kerry Katona say about her mother?

It was only last year that Kerry remembered her mother encouraging her to try drugs when she was 14.

On Instagram Live, the mother of five stated, “I know my mother is watching. I’m very proud of my mom and who she is today, but my addiction started when I was 14.

“I went to the pub on a Sunday like they do from the north and I remember my mother going to the pub.

“And I went to the bathroom, I was 14 and she had this bag of white powder. I said, “Mom, what is that?” She said, “It’s sorbet.”

Then she mimicked dipping her finger in her pocket and guessing she’d tried.

Kerry continued, “I don’t blame my mother or I say, ‘My mother is a bad mother’ – my mother didn’t know otherwise.

“Neither did I and as I got older and older it wasn’t going fast anymore and then I met a boy and he introduced me to cocaine, I must have been around 15, 16.

“I was a really, really good kid, but when I grew up it just went downhill from there.”

Kerry’s mother confirmed the sorbet story

Meanwhile, in 2018, Sue performed alongside Kerry on Good Morning Britain.

She confirmed the sherbet story, saying the substance was quick.

Sue then claimed, “It’s embarrassing. It was silly, it was dangerous, it was unforgivable.

“I wasn’t in the right mood. All I can say is that I was crazy

“When I did this, I was working in a pub and thought it would be fun.

“She was my friend, not my daughter. And it was totally, totally wrong. “
