CH­ERYL: TER­RI­FIED BY ON­LINE AT­TACKS

The star’s said to be reel­ing af­ter a nasty new wave of vi­cious on­line at­tacks…

It’s been a long nine months, but we can fi­nally hear the pit­ter-pat­ter of tiny feet. But de­spite Ch­eryl and Liam’s baby news, a close pal has re­vealed that Ch­eryl is grow­ing in­creas­ingly pro­tec­tive over her new fam­ily’s safety af­ter a se­ries of new tweets and com­ments from mean trolls.

We’re not sur­prised. Com­ments such as ‘If you dis­ap­peared, no one would care,’ and ‘go die in a whole [sic]… are you black­mail­ing Liam?’ have ap­peared on Ch­eryl’s In­sta­gram pics re­cently, leav­ing her ‘ter­ri­fied’.

It comes only a year af­ter the singer went through a sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tion fol­low­ing her and Liam’s big re­la­tion­ship re­veal. When the pair went public, Ch­eryl was hit with in­sults such as ‘re­pul­sive w***e’ from pro­tec­tive Direc­tion­ers who also told her to ‘f**k off ’.

In an ap­pear­ance on The One Show in Novem­ber, Ch­eryl spoke about be­ing trolled on­line, cit­ing these ex­pe­ri­ences as the rea­son she’s now a Child­line am­bas­sador.

‘There was a pe­riod of time where I was go­ing through re­ally hard per­sonal stuff,’ the singer said. ‘The scru­tiny, the lies, all the stuff on so­cial me­dia. That’s how I can re­late to the kids be­cause I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced the judg­ment, the bul­ly­ing.’ But the new com­ments are said to have hit the star hard as they di­rectly at­tack her as a mum.

One In­sta­gram user went so far as to say: ‘We will steal your baby,’ while oth­ers com­mented: ‘I hate you’ and ‘If this is [Liam’s baby] our lives will be de­stroyed’.

As Look re­ported last week, it’s one of the rea­sons the cou­ple have vowed to keep their lit­tle one out of the public eye and have gone to ex­treme lengths by ‘pic­ture­proof­ing’ cars and or­der­ing cus­tom-made pushchairs.

And fol­low­ing a re­cent in­ci­dent in­volv­ing Liam’s band­mate Louis Tom­lin­son at LAX, Ch­eryl is said to be grow­ing in­creas­ingly ner­vous about se­cu­rity.

‘These vile com­ments have meant she’s ter­ri­fied to leave the house,’ says our source. ‘She’s upped her se­cu­rity team be­cause she doesn’t want to take any risks.’ How­ever, it seems the show­biz world is just as ex­cited as we are to wel­come baby Chiam. Last week, Holly Wil­loughby in­vited Ch­eryl, Liam and the new baby onto Celebrity Juice (you might be wait­ing a while, Hols) while Ne-yo re­vealed his plans to write a lul­laby for the new ar­rival. He said: ‘A fly lil’ lul­laby for a fly lil’ baby n’ su­per fly lil’ mama.’ We couldn’t have said it bet­ter…

We will steal your baby!
