Kerry Katona hits back at trolls after her daughter Dylan-Jorge, 5, wore a full face of makeup for Instagram snaps
KERRY Katona has hit back at trolls who slammed her for letting her five-year-old daughter Dylan-Jorge wear make-up.
The mum-of-five ‘s youngest child with late ex George Kay posed for photos on Instagram wearing a thick layer of lipstick, mascara, eye-shadow and eyeliner as well as heavy make-up on her eyebrows.
But the post didn’t go down well with fans and many accused her of encouraging the little girl to grow up too soon.
Hitting back, Kerry told the “bore brigade” she won’t apologise for letting her daughter experiment with makeup.
“The bore brigade were out in force last week, having a go at me for posting pics of my DJ wearing makeup,” she writes in her column for New! magazine this week.
“I’m not apologising for anything. DJ’s a little girl and she loves putting on makeup like Mummy and her big sisters.
“It was Molly who did it, and I thought DJ looked absolutely beautiful.
“It’s not like she does it on a daily basis. Molly’s super talented with makeup and she can practise on her little sister any time she wants.
“If you have a problem with that, do one.”
Last week, Kerry told fans her daughter Molly, 17, applied the make-up as they needed a girly day of fun, alongside a gallery of photos of Dylan.
She wrote: “So after dj watching @123_mollymc do her big sisters makeup @lils.mc dj wanted to get hers done so we’ve all had a very girly day with lots of fun which was very much needed!“Before anyone starts to kick off about dj wearing makeup it was just a little bit of fun and great makeup practice for molly! No one was hurt in the making of these pics.”
One said: “Your daughter does not need make up she is has plenty of time once she is older, natural beauty is the best.”
Another groaned: “This is just wrong. She shouldn’t have to wear makeup at her age. and should be allowed to just be a kid. This is sending her the wrong message that being grown up and pretty girl is wearing makeup.
“It’s almost 2020 and we are still doing this to our girls.”
One more remarked: “Sending out wrong signals to wrong people.”
Kerry is also mum to daughter Lilly-Sue, 14, with ex-husband Brian McFadden, and Heidi, 10, and Max, nine, from her relationship with Mark Croft.
Kerry has had a tough time recently and is facing a trial in October after being accused of failing to send one of her five kids to school.
She and late husband George split in 2015 and she was forced to take out an injunction against him after a series of domestic incidents.
Earlier this month he died after being rushed to hospital suffering from a suspected drug overdose.
The former Atomic Kitten star has been haunted by the sudden death of her exwho is believed to have died after “eating a quantity of cocaine” at the Holiday Inn in Runcorn, Cheshire.
Last week Kerry admitted she was in counselling over his death and was “haunted” by the tragedy.

However, she has her sights set on a new relationship after signing up for Celebs Go Dating earlier this year.
The singer and presenter said of the E4 show: “It was really, really intimidating for me. All people know me for is being loud and a gob on legs and very confident when it comes to dating.
“I met my first hubby when I was 18. I’ve always really committed to a relationship, so when you have to walk into a room full of men, for me it was really daunting, like, ‘Oh my God, I feel a bit mortified.’”
