Meanwhile, the former Atomic Kitten' group member claims that she's not bankrupt, even though she was declared so by London's High Court last week. She insists that the order is set to be annulled this week as the money is available, but just hadn't cleared in time for the deadline set by the authorities. Katona had managed to reduce her 417,000 pounds tax bill to 82,000 pounds, but HM Revenue and Customs pressed ahead with the bankruptcy petition, which was first issued in January.
"Obviously I'm upset about it but it shouldn't have happened. I've been promised that it will be sorted out this week," she told Star magazine. Katona also dismissed claims that her taxi driver husband Mark Croft was simply with her to sponge off her wealth. "What's wrong with a woman being the main breadwinner? It's sexism. People have got it in their heads that he's bleeding me dry and just after my money," she said.
