Defiant Cheryl: ‘i’ll have the last laugh’
Geordie background, Cheryl has always been rightly proud of everything she’s achieved – and now she’s a single mum to 20-month-old son Bear, we’re told she feels it’s even more important to her to keep earning her own money. While ex-boyfriend Liam Payne is providing financial support for Bear, the insider says she wants to be independent and give Bear the life she could’ve only dreamed of when she was younger, adding that she’s shrugged off the backlash, putting it down to people being “snobby”.
“Cheryl knows this is her market and thinks the extensions range will be hugely popular with her fans in Liverpool, Essex and, of course, Newcastle,” says the source. “She knows she’ll have the last laugh, and this is just the start of what she hopes will be something bigger. She’s already thinking about retiring from music and this could be her way out – a businesswoman who makes money while she sleeps. It’s all part of her big plan.” n Kate Randall
