After four months of ‘will she, wont she’, Cheryl Cole has finally put her money where her mouth is, and has filed divorce proceedings with the high court against cheating husband, Ashley Cole.
And generous Cheryl Cole doesn’t want a penny from Ashley, nor does she want the £6 million Surrey Mansion. She wants a “clean break” without any wrangling so she can get on with her life, and he can concentrate on England’s World Cup Challenge.
Against all expectations, The X Factor judge has told lawyers to rush through a quick divorce because she is determined Ashley must go into the World Cup without being distracted by “emotional turmoil.” An insider told The Sun last night: “Cheryl made a swift decision to put England’s World Cup dreams ahead of herself. The divorce should be finalised before England’s first match in two weeks time.“
Cheryl Cole’s PR company Supersonic confirmed the divorce this morning, but refused to comment any further. The divorce papers, as expected, cite “unreasonable behaviour” and not “infidelity” as the grounds for divorce. The divorce documents state that after The Sun exposed Ashley’s sex-texting, The Girls Aloud singer confronted him about messages on his phone from other women. The documents state that Cheryl put it to him that he’d been unfaithful, and that he “admitted it.“
Cheryl’s lawyers have been working around the clock to complete the paperwork that will officially end the couples turbulent marriage, one month shy of four years. They formally lodged the divorce action at the High Court in London at 2pm yesterday. Cheryl and Ashley – who did not sign a pre-nuptial agreement – are both worth around £10 million.
“She has fully accepted there is no going back after Ashley’s cheating and their marriage breakdown. So this divorce will be clean, swift, amicable and smooth. Cheryl has no spite towards Ashley and has been incredibly mature and considerate in how she has handled the split,” said the source.
The divorce will end what started out in July 2006 as a fairytale match between showbiz and football. What do you think about the Cheryl Cole Divorce? Are you happy she has followed through on her earlier claims that she is definitely leaing him? Leave your comments below.
