Ch­eryl ‘It’s em­bar­rass­ing!’

It’s all she’s wanted for a long time but our in­sid­ers re­veal Ch­eryl’s reel­ing fol­low­ing the end of her sec­ond mar­riage

Look (UK) - - FRONT PAGE -

An­other week of drama for Ch­eryl as fi­nally, after a year of wran­gling, her di­vorce from hus­band of 19 months Jean­bernard Fer­nan­dez-versini was granted. A state­ment from her rep said last week: ‘Ch­eryl and Jean-bernard have ob­tained a de­cree nisi in their di­vorce pro­ceed­ings. No fur­ther com­ment will be made and they ask for their pri­vacy to be re­spected.’

It marks the end of a long bat­tle for Ch­eryl, 33, whose re­la­tion­ship with 23-year-old Liam Payne has been over­shad­owed by her di­vorce pro­ceed­ings with JB. Friends say that while she’s hurt and em­bar­rassed by the past year, she can fi­nally move on with Liam.

As Look re­ported pre­vi­ously, Ch­eryl’s beau may have al­ready pro­posed – he’s des­per­ate to ce­ment their 10-month re­la­tion­ship for good. De­spite this, the pair will have to wait for an­other six weeks be­fore the fi­nal order of­fi­cially end­ing Ch­eryl and JB’S mar­riage – known as a de­cree ab­so­lute – can be granted, en­abling ei­ther party to move on and re­marry. While fans would ex­pect the for­mer Girls Aloud singer to be beam­ing with hap­pi­ness fol­low­ing the news, Ch­eryl is still feel­ing sore in the wake of her sec­ond failed mar­riage. ‘I’m still a per­son. I’m still get­ting di­vorced – it hurts,’ she said on Piers Mor­gan’s Life Sto­ries in 2009, where she spoke about her di­vorce from Ash­ley Cole, adding: ‘It’s em­bar­rass­ing. I feel numb.’ She did, how­ever, tweet Lit­tle Mix last week ask­ing for their new al­bum, which in­cludes the song Shout Out To My Ex. Throw­ing shade?

Ch­eryl, who’s nei­ther con­firmed nor de­nied she’s preg­nant de­spite de­but­ing a bump in Paris two weeks ago, pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted ‘there’s no right or wrong’ when it comes to re­la­tion­ships. ‘I’d never have taken my vows if I didn’t [think it would last for­ever]. It’s not some­thing you’d ever go into lightly, think­ing: “If I feel dif­fer­ently later it doesn’t mat­ter.”’

So will Ch­eryl be more cau­tious third time round? It’s un­likely. Pals tell us she ‘doesn’t want to waste any time when it comes to Liam,’ so it’s no won­der she’s plough­ing ahead with their wed­ding plans. They want to be ‘mar­ried as soon as pos­si­ble’ ac­cord­ing to our in­sid­ers.

‘Ch­eryl and Liam want to marry abroad. They’ll fly their friends and fam­ily over for com­plete pri­vacy,’ says our source. ‘Their wed­ding plans all had to be very se­cre­tive while the di­vorce was in progress but now Ch­eryl wants to move things on very swiftly – they both know the fu­ture is all that mat­ters now.’

With the news that Liam has se­cured a US record deal with Re­pub­lic Records, the pair are now re­port­edly look­ing at homes in LA to make the US their per­ma­nent base.

‘Ch­eryl’s hop­ing that Los An­ge­les is where they can cre­ate their fu­ture to­gether,’ adds our source. ‘She sees this as the per­fect time to make a com­pletely new start.’

The Ge­ordie singer sent Twit­ter into melt­down last week when pho­tos sur­faced of her cud­dling Liam’s dog Parker at for­mer band­mate Ni­cola Roberts’ birth­day din­ner. She kept her bump hid­den in the pho­tos but is ex­pected to ad­dress all the ru­mours at her Stor­mflower Plat­inum per­fume sign­ing in Lon­don this week.

Ch­eryl told us ex­clu­sively: ‘I had so much fun cre­at­ing this fra­grance. It’s dif­fer­ent to the other Stor­mflower per­fumes so it took a lit­tle longer to cre­ate. I wanted ev­ery­thing to echo the change in smell. The scent is re­ally beau­ti­ful, mor­eish and it can be worn day or night.’ Life does seem to be smelling pretty sweet for Ch­eryl.

Mar­riage is not some­thing you’d ever go into lightly
