Cheryl Cole has officially sealed the deal on her divorce from her husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez! Now that she’s a free agent, does this mean she and Liam Payne will take their romance to the next level?
It’s official! Pop star Cheryl Cole, 33, is a free woman! Cheryl was granted a legal split from her second husband, Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, in London on Oct. 20. The couple were together for 18 months before agreeing to part ways for good.
According to divorce documents obtained by The Sun, Cheryl cited Jean-Bernard’s “unreasonable behavior” as the reason for their split, claiming that his behavior and their union in general caused her “stress and weight loss.” Yikes! While it’s pretty difficult to determine what specific behavior may have caused Cheryl stress, in recent months, the star has been noticeably thinner. Fans were shocked to see the singer’s weight had plummeted drastically when she returned to The X Factor in July 2016. While arriving to the singing competition’s preliminary auditions in July, the singer looked extremely thin with her ribs showing and her clothing appearing to slightly hang off of her petite frame. Oh no!
It seems Cheryl and her ex-husband weren’t able to agree on much in their marriage, but they did reach an agreement to the terms of their separation. Cheryl was able to keep all of her million-dollar fortune, according to the Daily Mail. Not bad!
Cheryl and Jean-Bernard’s divorce comes 10 months after they announced their separation in Jan. 2016. They’d also reportedly been living apart for the past five months. It’s probably a little disappointing for Cheryl to end yet another marriage, but there is a silver lining: she’s now free get serious with One Direction‘s Liam Payne, 23!
Cheryl and Liam reportedly lit the flame on their romance in Feb. 2016, and they’ve been spotted numerous times on the red carpet together. The two are even rumored to have been expecting a child together, although those reports have not been confirmed. Now with her marriage legally out of the way, this will most likely give them the chance to move forward with their relationship in whatever way that may be.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Cheryl and Liam will tie the knot soon?
