Kerry Katona has hit out at reports claiming she could end up on the wrong side of Katie Price after having her photo taken with Kieran Hayler.
Tabloid favourite Kerry, 39, criticised a newspaper website for 'exaggerating' as she took reporters to task for trying to stir up trouble with her former glamour model pal.
The row stems from Mirror’s claims that Katie, 41, would be "fuming" with Kerry for "cosying up" to Kieran as they had their picture taken at a promotional event.
Kieran, 32, and Kerry were snapped together at Tulley's Shocktober Fest Scream Park last night, with a host of former Love Islanders also in attendance.
However, a furious Kerry this afternoon dismissed the report - and questioned why the press can be "so determined to try and cause [bleep] between me and Katie".
"Think you need to grow up we’re not in a school playground!" she insisted.
They don’t half exaggerate!
Kerry continued: "Having a pic with my friend’s ex isn’t a bloody crime! Stop hating and start loving!"
Slamming the choice of words used in the report, she added: "'Cosying', my God - we stood next to each other for a pic!
"I was with my boyfriend! They don’t half exaggerate!"
Earlier this week it was reported Kerry might be keen on recording a song with Katie.
It has been claimed Katie is set to release a track with X Factor winner Sam Bailey - and former Atomic Kitten singer Kerry is said to have considered getting involved.
She is said to have told New! mag: "For a brief second I thought about joining the fun, maybe recreating the glory days being in a girl band, but let's face it, I'm not worthy of humming in front of Sam!"
"And can you imagine the criticism we'd get if me and Katie did a single together? Dear God," Kerry is said to have added.
"Mind you, it'd have number one written all over it, wouldn't it?"
