Although Cheryl Cole hasn’t brought in divorce lawyers yet, she is adamant that she’s still leaving her love-rat husband Ashley, and plans to quit her £3.5 million mansion in Surrey before Ashley comes home this week.
The Girls Aloud singer has told pals the Surrey home holds too many painful memories, and cannot stand to live there any longer. She is hoping to be out completely before Ashley arrives home from the French Sports Clinic where he’s having treatment on his broken ankle.
26-year-old Cheryl has already viewed TWO luxury properties nearby, and wants Ashley to buy her out of her share of their current home. In the meantime, Cheryl plans to rent an apartment somewhere. Ashley is said to be desperate to get home before she leaves so he can “work his magic” on her, where he’ll try to convince her to give him another chance.
Ashley Cole was originally due to fly home on Tuesday, but his leg hadn’t healed as planned so his stay had to be extended. He was going to leave anyway, but Chelsea Football Club told him if he ignored the doctors advice, he would be putting his chances of playing at this years World Cup at risk.
Yesterday he spent time in the clinics gym. A fellow patient said: “He looked like a man on a mission – head down saying nothing. His life is a serious business right now.“
A friend close to Cheryl Cole also told the press: “She wants to be gone before he gets home. She doesn’t want to see him. Her plan is to have her stuff out of the house before he flies home, then if they do meet, she can dictate the terms. The house holds too many memories after everything that’s gone on. He can have it. She’s going lock, stock and barrel. She’s already looking for somewhere else for her, her mum and her two dogs.“
