Cheryl's 18 month marriage with JB is finally over.
Cheryl’s plans to divorce husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini broke in January and today the court hearing took a mere 14 seconds.
A spokesperson for the singer confirmed the news, explaining: ‘Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini have today obtained Decree Nisi in their divorce proceedings.
‘No further comment will be made and they ask for their privacy to be respected.’
Neither Cheryl or JB were present at the court in Holborn and it's reported that she is likely to keep all of her estimated £20 million fortune.
Cheryl has blamed the frenchman's 'unreasonable behaviour' to be the failure of the marriage which is what caused her to lose weight.
The revelation was made in the district judge’s certificate which was issued after the brief hearing.
The paperwork stated: “The marriage having irretrievably broken down, the facts proved being the respondent’s unreasonable behaviour.”
In one section Cheryl was asked: “If you consider the respondent’s behaviour has affected your health, state the effect it has had.”
An answer added Cheryl’s lawyers revealed: “It caused stress and weight loss.”
The paperwork means the union will be officially over in six weeks when the Decree Absolute is issued. All focus then turns to the future as Cheryl continues her relationship with Liam and the rumours of a baby on the horizon continue to grow!
