Katie Waissel splits with husband
Katie Waissel has reportedly called time on her relationship with Brian Moote following just a year of marriage
Katie Waissel has split from her husband.
The 'X Factor' reject - who took part in 'Celebrity Big Brother' over the summer - was to play Princess Jill in a pantomime production of 'Jack and The Beanstalk' in Cheshire this weekend, but she's been forced to pull out in order to grieve after she and her spouse Brian Moote, whom she married last year, called time on their marriage.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Katie and Brian have split, and she is simply too upset to handle the gruelling regime of a pantomime. She's jetted back to America and has set up home in New York with her dog, Norman. Christmas will be tough on her own, but having to put on a brave face in front of a full house every night would have been tougher. She's devastated things with Brian haven't worked out."
The 30-year-old wannabe singer set tongues wagging earlier this week when she was pictured without her wedding ring while she walked her pet pooch in New York City.
The news that Katie and Brian have gone their separate ways will no doubt come as a shock to their friends and family as they only got married in October 2015.
And the pair seemed very much in love in the summer as they revealed they were hoping to start a family together once Katie's stint in 'CBB' had concluded in August.
She said: "Brian and I are thinking of having babies. I want to get my body pre-baby ready, so good nutrition is vital. I'm such a broody person and can't wait to be a mum."
However, Katie is no stranger to giving up on her marriage at the first hurdle as she also divorced her first husband Brad Alphonso in 2012 after just two months.
