Kerry Katona lost big playing poker high on coke
Kerry Katona once blew £6,000 pounds playing online poker while high on cocaine.
The reality TV star famously battled drug problems and was hooked on cocaine during her marriage to second husband Mark Croft.
And she reveals that her addiction got so bad, she would snort drugs while locked in her bedroom gambling online - until she lost thousands in one game.
She tells the Daily Star, "I used to gamble. I was really good at poker. I used to do it on the internet, in my bedroom, most of the time off my head on coke.
"I'd be sitting there in bed with a laptop on my lap playing online poker going: 'Get in. This is dead good this.'
"I'd have a little line of coke and go back online and bet some more. I was always really good at it but then one day I lost six grand and I thought: 'S**t.' I was like: 'F**k that, I'm not playing no more' and I never played it again."
Katona was declared bankrupt in 2008 after being slapped with a huge £82,000 tax bill.
what do you think?
What a great period in her kids' lives that must have been! How thoughtful of Ms Katona to casually share that little nugget of information so flippantly. Nothing like a bit of humble regret.
