FORMER Westlife star Brian McFadden has slammed his ex Kerry Katona saying their daughter Molly got her musical talent from him.
The couple married in 2002 before separating in 2004 and their divorce was finalized in 2006.
They share two daughters Molly, 21, and Lilly-Sue, 19.
And Kerry was recently blown away by Molly’s voice after she shared a clip of herself singing online.
However, Brian believes this talent comes from telling him that Kerry “isn’t Mozart”.
He said Subway: “With music, I would say [she’s following in] my steps. I don’t think she’s following in her mother’s footsteps. I wouldn’t say his mother is exactly Mozart!”
And although he thought about doing a duet with his daughter, he thinks she would find it corny.
He said: “Molly and I sit around playing guitar, and I listen to her music all the time, but I think Molly would think it was a little cheesy for us to sing together.
“I’m more rock and pop and she has this modern singer-songwriter style.”
Brian previously told how he missed a lot with his two daughters – and fought with his ex Kerry.
Opening to Closer magazine, the Irish singer confessed that he regretted “not being there so much for his two eldest children”.
Brian said: “I was just a kid myself when I had Molly and Lilly, and I was then at the height of my career at Westlife – we were literally working 365 days a year, and there was no there was no FaceTime so I couldn’t talk to the kids.
“I could only see them when I got home.
“So it was a lot harder and I missed a lot of things that I would have liked to see with the girls.”
Luckily, Brian and Kerry now have a better relationship, and the fact that the girls are older makes co-parenting easier.
He added: “It’s very easy to co-parent now that the kids aren’t kids anymore. It was obviously a lot harder when they were growing up.
“Kerry and I haven’t had a great relationship since the day we broke up until now, really, but it’s been a long time.
“We were just kids when we met and when we broke up, but we have enough life experience now that we are moving on and there are no problems.
“There are no more fights.”
