ch­eryl: ‘i don’t feel At­trac­tive Any more’

Af­ter a life-chang­ing year, Ch­eryl’s been plagued by self-doubt – but Liam’s do­ing every­thing he can to help. Bless…

Fol­low­ing a 2016 that saw Ch­eryl fi­nally end her di­vorce battle with Jean-bernard Fer­nan­dez-versini, face a huge back­lash for her new re­la­tion­ship with One Di­rec­tion’s Liam Payne and deal with be­ing apart from him for sev­eral months, she’s sup­posed to be look­ing for­ward to a fresh start in 2017. How­ever, our sources re­veal that the singer is ac­tu­ally feel­ing tired and wor­ried.

‘Ch­eryl might be pro­ject­ing a happy im­age on­line, but she’s ac­tu­ally feel­ing very in­se­cure,’ says our source. ‘She looks very dif­fer­ent and the stress of Christ­mas has taken its toll.’

Other in­sid­ers have hinted the 33-year-old’s low mood is down to the cruel and false cheat­ing ru­mours sur­round­ing 23-year-old boyfriend Liam over Christ­mas.

In De­cem­ber, Twit­ter users sug­gested that he’d been seen kiss­ing some­one else af­ter at­tend­ing a pre­miere with­out Ch­eryl – ru­mours that all proved un­true. The false re­ports are said to have an­gered Ch­eryl at a time when she’s been feel­ing very sen­si­tive.

‘She’s find­ing it hard at the mo­ment,’ an­other friend tells us. ‘Her body has changed so much and she feels unattrac­tive. She’s se­cretly wor­ried that their age gap will come be­tween them.’ Of course, it’s been a whirl­wind ro­mance for the cou­ple, whose ages dif­fer by 10 years. This time in 2016 the pair hadn’t yet gone pub­lic, while 12 months on Ch­eryl’s been seen with a bump – de­spite re­fus­ing to com­ment on preg­nancy ru­mours. The star is also said to be fo­cus­ing on how she’ll cope alone in 2017.

‘Liam’s got big plans for his music ca­reer and it’s go­ing to keep him in the US for a long time,’ says a source. ‘She’s a home­body so it’s go­ing to be very dif­fi­cult to be apart. It brings up all the bad feel­ings from her pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ships.’

It’s also prov­ing dif­fi­cult for Liam, who’s con­stantly try­ing to re­mind his girl­friend that she’s every­thing to him: ‘Liam’s as­sured her he’ll be there for her 24/7, but it’s still hard.’

It might ex­plain why Liam, who’s been very open about his feel­ings for Chez, is still mak­ing sure ev­ery­one knows how he feels. Last week, he took part in a fan Q&A ses­sion on Twit­ter and when asked who his woman crush was, told the user: ‘We all know the an­swer to that,’ be­fore adding: ‘[I’m] the hap­pi­est I could be.’ It’s enough to make us sick. We reckon Ch­eryl could do with a lit­tle Twit­ter trawl…
