Liam Payne’s girlfriend Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is trying to push through a quickie divorce from her ex-husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini. Does that mean she wants to wed the One Direction heartthrob soon?
This is messy. Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, 32, is desperately trying to push through her divorce from restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, 35, but it’s getting complicated because he’s haggling over money. But with Cheryl wanting the divorce papers signed off quickly, it begs the question does she want to get married to current beau Liam Payne, 22 in the near future?
Cheryl and Liam were subject to engagement rumors back in April and the private pair are said to have begun dating since the turn of the year. However, she cannot get married again until the divorce is settled, and that’s where the problem seems to lie for the couple, should they want to walk down the aisle soon.
But at London’s High Court, a judge denied Cheryl’s lawyers attempts to force a clean break from her ex, and now negotiations are turning ugly because Jean-Bernard reportedly wants a slice of her $4.5 million profits from her music, TV and beauty deals. It’s meant the whole thing has stalled, and she’s furious about it, according to The Sunday Mirror.
“Cheryl filed for divorce before Christmas and hoped things would be done and dusted by now as she is keen to move on with her life and new relationship with Liam,” a source tells the UK tabloid. This should have been dealt with absolutely ages ago but things have turned very sour. Jean-Bernard has hired top lawyers to make sure he doesn’t walk away empty-handed so obviously that has led to things getting very messy.”
Cheryl married the French restaurant owner in July 2014 after a whirlwind romance. They’d only been dating for three months before she walked down the aisle. The wedding came so quick that Cheryl completely neglected the idea of a prenup, so technically her $18 million fortune could be up for grabs.
We hope that Cheryl gets this resolved as quickly as possible, and perhaps soon we may be seeing her and Liam walk down the aisle very soon!
