She might be queen of keep­ing a low pro­file, but a se­ries of re­cent events has left Cheryl reel­ingé

Sarah go­ing in the CBB house is the ul­ti­mate be­trayal

It’s been over four months since Cheryl wel­comed her first child with boyfriend Liam Payne. And while she’s spent the ma­jor­ity of her ma­ter­nity leave out of the pub­lic eye and en­joy­ing life as a new mum to baby Bear, the last few weeks have seen a ma­jor turn­around af­ter she was forced to con­front a se­ries of dra­mas: an ex, a former friend and a former band­mate.

We get it: it must be frus­trat­ing for Cheryl. Ac­cord­ing to our source, the 34-year-old just wants a ‘nor­mal life’. But it seems that might not be so straight­for­ward, af­ter Chez is said to have rowed with former Girls Aloud band­mate Sarah Hard­ing, re­sult­ing in Cheryl un­fol­low­ing Sarah on Twit­ter. Sarah, 35, later posted a cryp­tic quote on In­sta­gram, read­ing: ‘Those who hurt you will even­tu­ally face their own karma.’

While the rea­son be­hind their feud hasn’t been con­firmed, sources say the ar­gu­ment stemmed from Sarah’s de­ci­sion to en­ter the Celebrity Big Brother house last week. While Cheryl’s re­port­edly wor­ry­ing over what Sarah might say, she’s also said to be fum­ing that Sarah will be spend­ing time with re­al­ity star Jemma Lucy, who had a three-month fling with Cheryl’s ex-hus­band Ash­ley Cole, re­port­edly not long af­ter their split.

‘Cheryl’s hav­ing a great time as a mum and is fo­cused on that, but she’s dis­ap­pointed that her former band­mate will be hang­ing out with a per­son linked to her ex af­ter their break-up,’ says our source. ‘For Cheryl, it’s the ul­ti­mate be­trayal. Sarah was a huge part of her life at the time of the split, and for Sarah to put all of that aside for five min­utes of fame is un­for­give­able. She can’t be­lieve she would hang out with Jemma on TV. ‘She re­ally feels strongly that she won’t trust or work with Sarah ever again – and that spells bad news for a po­ten­tial Girls Aloud re­union. With­out Cheryl on board, it won’t work.’

While Sarah has since spo­ken out to in­sist: ‘I’ve got Cheryl’s num­ber, we don’t have to prove we’re friends on­line,’ she’s also claimed she won’t be dish­ing the dirt on the other girls, say­ing: ‘I wouldn’t go in there to talk about the band or their se­crets.’ And on launch night she ad­mit­ted she didn’t like con­fronta­tion, say­ing: ‘I’ve been in a girl band and don’t like it.’

But while Cheryl’s said to be hav­ing ‘sleep­less nights’ since the show started, she was handed yet an­other blow last week, when former X Fac­tor judge Nicole Scherzinger was spot­ted hang­ing out with her ex-hus­band Jean-bernard Fernandez-versini. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, Cheryl and Nicole have had a rocky re­la­tion­ship from the start, with Cheryl writ­ing in her au­to­bi­og­ra­phy that Nicole was ‘a bit crazy and odd’ when they first met. Now Chez is said to have taken the pho­tos of Nicole and JB shar­ing a cheeky glance at one an­other as a per­sonal dig.

‘Cheryl feels Nicole’s crossed a line by pur­pose­fully link­ing up with her ex-hus­band,’ says our source. ‘She thinks it was a cheap pub­lic­ity stunt and feels Nicole hasn’t even con­sid­ered how it would make her feel. The way Cheryl sees it, girls should stick to­gether no mat­ter what.’

We can see why things might be get­ting on top of Cheryl at the mo­ment. But ac­cord­ing to sources, the star’s main con­cern re­mains her life with 23-year-old Liam and their son Bear. ‘Cheryl’s not go­ing to let any­thing come in be­tween her and Liam,’ in­sists our in­sider.

What’s more, Cheryl might fi­nally be re­turn­ing to the spot­light (for the right rea­sons) af­ter shar­ing a snap while on a photo shoot last week, writ­ing: ‘Back at it @lo­re­al­makeup #wor­thit.’

While she might be hav­ing some girl drama, it seems Chez and Liam are stronger than ever, as the 1D star re­ferred to Cheryl as his ‘wife’ yet again. Let’s hope it’s a sign of things to come…
