British singer Kerry Katona has filed for bankruptcy.

The Atomic Kitten star filed the petition under her full name, Kerry Jayne Elizabeth Katona, at Wigan County Court in England on Tuesday (02Jul13), according to the Irish Independent.

Despite her money problems, the 32 year old appears to still be in good spirits - in a post on on Tuesday morning, she wrote, "Morning twitter! Hold your head high and be proud, never be ashamed! Always try your best and believe in yourself! Have a great day".

It's not the first time Katona has faced financial struggles - she filed for bankruptcy in 2008 after she was left unable to pay a $133,300 (£86,000) tax bill.
