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…
