Former ATOMIC KITTEN KERRY McFADDEN is allegedly demanding half of pop hunk BRIAN's current fortune and future earnings following his decision to end their two-year marriage.

Kerry moved out of the couple's home in Ireland last month (SEP04) and moved into a house in Cheshire, northern England, because the former Westlife singer's punishing solo schedule had damaged his relationships with Kerry and the couple's daughters MOLLY, three and LILY SUE, one.

And now the blonde beauty is reportedly seeking a one-off payment of at least $9 million (GBP5 million) as part of her divorce settlement, followed by another $9 million if the REAL TO ME star's bid for chart glory is successful, reports Britain's DAILY STAR newspaper.

Kerry's friend says, "If their split goes to court Kerry will fight for half of everything, and more. His solo career's taken off. That's happened with Kerry's support."

The couple's spokesman Max Clifford confirms, "It was Brian who brought it to an end. He is not feeling the same way anymore."
