Now that Cheryl is a married woman, she thinks that this tattoo is inappropriate. She also wants to remove it not only out of respect for her new husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, 33, for also for herself. She wants to let Jean-Bernard know that she has moved on from her past, especially about her relationship with Ashley.
The “Call My Name” singer inked the tattoo on the back of her neck after she married English footballer Ashley Cole. She divorced him in 2010 on allegations that he cheated on her with multiple women.
Following her second marriage to French restaurateur on July 7, she decided to cover the tattoo with brand new one, reportedly of a “phoenix”.
A source told The Sun newspaper that Cheryl is undecided whether to laser off the tattoo, or to replace it something like a phoenix. Her new tattoo would be symbolic, given the myth that a phoenix rises from the ashes.
The X Factor judge has a dozen tattoos on her body, including a massive one consisting of roses that covers her lower back and bottom, which generated a lot of controversy from the media and her peers. She already consulted US tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado about removing the tattoo.
Meanwhile, Cheryl has achieved her fourth No.1 single in the UK with “Crazy Stupid Love” after the song topped the Official Singles Chart. This will be Cheryl’s ninth number one in total, which includes her previous four chart toppers with her former band Girls Aloud and on the charity cover, “Everybody Hurts” in 2010.
This places Cheryl Cole alongside Rita Ora and Geri Halliwell as the sole three British female artists to achieve the same milestone. Her previous No.1 singles while going solo are, “Fight For This Love” in 2009, “Promise This” in 2010 and “Call My Name” in 2012.
