Washington, Mar 25 (ANI): Kerry Katona is considering legal action against a British tabloid which accused her of becoming heavily addicted to cocaine in a bid to cope with her rocky marriage to Mark Croft.

According to the News Of The World, the former Atomic Kitten singer had begun indulging in three-day drug binges that had left her on the brink of suicide.

She was also reported to be taking amphetamines and anti-depressants, reports Contactmusic.

A representative for Katona has released a statement announcing the star is now taking legal advice and wants to pursue the matter through the courts.

The statement reads, “A News of the World article has made several extremely defamatory allegations today about Kerry Katona and drug abuse.

“These allegations are completely untrue and we will be speaking to our solicitors today about taking legal action against this story.” (ANI)
