Myleene Klass has given some raw insight into the emotional turmoil following her 2013 divorce.
After three years of marriage, Myleene split from Graham Quinn, the father of her two daughters, Ava, 11, and Hero, seven.
Detailing the very trying time, the 40-year-old has now revealed she had turned to alcohol to numb the “humiliation” of the marital fallout.
Speaking with Kate Thornton and Tamzin Outhwaite on Yahoo’s White Wine Question Time podcast, Myleene confessed her relationship with booze became a point of concern.
Revealing she had become reliant on having a drink every five hours, Myleene explained: “I remember waking up and thinking it’s ok to have a drink at 11am, because I hadn’t had a drink in five hours.
“The humiliation, you’ve got people looking at you, blaming you without a clue as to what the f**k is going on…”
The mother-of-two then detailed her battle with the financial peril of her divorce – as her reported £11million fortune was thrown into jeopardy after Myleene failed to sign a pre-nuptial agreement.
“I was doing breakfast TV and I went to get out the car and I thought, ‘I can’t’.
“And I opened the door, and I couldn’t get out the car. I couldn’t breathe. Finances were spiralling because I thought, ‘I’m going to lose everything’.”
It’s claimed that Graham was the director of Myleene’s company, meaning he would have had legal authority of her financial resources.
Myleene, who can be heard becoming audibly upset, then added: “Lauren (Laverne) came and visited me at 4 in the morning, that’s how low I was.
“I didn’t want the divorce to define me, but it did change me irrevocably. I’ve never ever been in the position where I’ve had to ask people for help.”
Myleene previously vowed to never speak to her former husband again, resulting in Graham publicly hitting back on social media in 2015.
Taking to Twitter, Graham shared: “I’ve stayed quiet for three years now but enough is enough.
“Please explain to me how I took your money? I lost so much money from our divorce and our house that we bought together.”
