George passed away on July 6 after reportedly suffering a drug overdose at a Holiday Inn, aged 39. Kerry insists that he didn't try to take his own life, admitting that she thinks the overdose was accidental.

She idolised her dad. We still had his photos up around the house. She loved him to bits and he loved her. I've never, ever disputed that.
