The former ‘X Factor’ judge has recently bought a $5 million two-bedroom apartment in Beverly Hills, and while she loves the city her close pal Kimberley Walsh revealed spending five days in Los Angeles with Cheryl recently made her realise how chaotic her bandmate’s life is.
She explained to the Daily Star newspaper: ‘t made me realise what it is like for her. I get scared for her in the madness.
‘t was wonderful to go and chill out completely. We had a bit of a dance and discovered coffee-flavoured Patron Tequila. It makes you a nice happy drunk so it was our girls’ holiday drink of choice.
‘The only thing missing was a bit of shopping but it became far too hard to organise as Cheryl gets hounded out there by the paparazzi. It was absolutely terrifying.’
Meanwhile, a model and former Miss Ireland contestant who has been linked to Cheryl’s ex husband Ashley Cole has claimed the soccer star has no plans to reunite with his former spouse.
Colette McBarron told The Sun newspaper: ‘Without saying too much I could guarantee that he probably isn’t, unless I’m hearing lies.
‘ can’t say I’ve never met him or that we’ve never been out together because clearly there are pictures of that on different occasions.’
The ‘Parachute’ hitmaker has reportedly cancelled immediate plans with the soccer player and ordered him to delete her phone number following claims made by flight attendant Kerry Meades claimed to have slept with the sportsman in Los Angeles last month, just days before he flew back to the UK to seal his reunion with Cheryl at her 28th birthday party.
A source said: ‘Once again Ashley appears to have outdone himself. Just as Cheryl’s getting back on track . he does this. She is humiliated.
‘Ashley had organised a family gathering, a barbecue, for when he got back from pre-season training in the Far East. This has now been scrapped. Cheryl told him on the phone yesterday that clearly Ashley isn’t yet ready to be a committed family man. At one point they had a blazing row and Cheryl basically said she was through with him and told Ashley to delete her number and leave her alone.”
However, the Girls Aloud star hasn’t completely turned her back on Ashley ‘ who she originally dumped following revelations he cheated on her with several women during their marriage – and there is a possibility she will agree to take him back again.
The insider added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: ‘Cheryl is determined to keep her head down now and focus on work. What will be with Ashley will be. But it can wait.
‘Although, in his defence, they weren’t officially back together when he had this fling so technically they were free agents then.’
Kerry ‘ who first met Ashley in 2004 ‘ says he showed no signs of wanting Cheryl back when they slept together and urged the pop beauty to dump him for good.
She said: “The whole time I was with him, he acted like a single man. When he cut off contact with me, I knew I had been dumped. It made me feel used and dirty, like I was a piece of meat.
“I don’t think Ashley has any idea how to be faithful to a woman and I am certain that he will never change. I feel sorry for Cheryl. I would leave him now before it is too late.”
Cheryl Cole has thanked doctors for ‘saving her life’. The ‘Fight for This Love’ singer was struck down with malaria earlier this month and has now paid tribute to the team of doctors and nurses who treated her, saying without them she might not be alive. She told experts at the Hospital for Tropical Diseases at University College London: ‘ want to say how grateful I am for everything you guys have done. I wouldn’t be here now if it wasn’t for you.’ The pop star is now planning to make a donation to the NHS medical centre to show staff just how appreciative she is of their help. ‘Her blood count was dangerously low, she had fluid on her lungs and she was jaundiced. But she was in the best possible place. The doctors there are first class and Cheryl knew afterwards she virtually owes her life to them.’ Cheryl, 27, has been holed up in her Surrey mansion for the past few weeks recovering, although she made her first trip out this week to a local Starbucks coffee shop. Her rumoured boyfriend Derek Hough has been getting her back to full strength by cooking the petite star an array of tasty treats from his home country America, including his specialty macaroni and cheese. A source told The Sun newspaper: ‘Derek’s been brilliant during her recovery. He’s been really hands on, treating her to his home cooking. His signature dish is mac n’ cheese, which has been the favourite in Cheryl’s home. Even mum Joan’s a fan.’ The pair arrived at Los Angeles International Airport last night (29.07.10), where the Girls Aloud star is believed to be continuing her recuperation before rejoining the judging panel on Simon Cowell’s pop star search ‘The X Factor’.
Cheryl Cole is keen to return to work. The ‘Fight for This Love’ singer ‘ who has had to take a break from all her commitments after she was struck down with potentially fatal tropical disease malaria ‘ has reportedly been texting Simon Cowell saying she is bored and wants to resume her role as a judge on his British pop star search show ‘The X Factor’ as soon as possible. Speaking to ‘GMTV’, Simon said: ‘The worst is over. The texts are getting increasingly feisty so she’s on the mend.’ However, the music mogul admitted he is trying to stop the 27-year-old brunette beauty ‘ who is believed to have contracted the illness while on holiday with rumoured boyfriend Derek Hough in Tanzania last month ‘ from rushing back to work too quickly. He explained: ‘t was serious and she was ill – we didn’t realise how ill. But judging by the text messages I’ve had, she is definitely looking forward to getting back to work.’ I think our job is to make sure she doesn’t come back too quickly because I think she’s bored out of her mind and going crazy.’ Cheryl ‘ who as well as pulling out of ‘The X Factor’ had to cancel her scheduled appearances at the V Festival in August .
Cheryl Cole has contracted malaria. The ‘Fight for This Love’ hit maker ‘ who collapsed at a photo shoot in north London on last Saturday ’ is believed to have picked up the potentially deadly disease after getting bitten by a mosquito while holidaying in Tanzania with dancer Derek Hough last month. An insider revealed to the Daily Mirror newspaper: ‘She had been taking malaria tablets regularly while on holiday and continued to take them even after she returned back, but she still tested positive for it.’ Derek rushed to the brunette beauty’s bedside as soon as he heard the news, and is now said to be blaming himself. The insider added: ‘He’s mortified by what happened and is utterly devastated at what she’s going through ‘ not least because it happened on a trip he’d planned. ‘t’s such a shame as she had such a lovely holiday with Derek and has such lovely memories of it. He is worried sick about her. He’s sticking close by her bedside and trying to keep her cheerful.’ Initially, it was believed the 27-year-old singer was suffering from severe exhaustion and gastroenteritis and had been working too hard on the new series of pop star search show ‘The X Factor’ and on her second solo album. A statement from Cheryl’s representative has confirmed she is cancelling all work commitments until she has made a full recovery. The statement read: ‘Following doctor’s advice Cheryl Cole will be cancelling all work commitments for the next week.’
Cheryl Cole supported by Kimberley Walsh. Kimberley Walsh is supporting Cheryl Cole through her marriage split. The Girls Aloud singer admits she is particularly close to her bandmate – who separated from soccer star husband Ashley Cole earlier this year amid allegations he had cheated on her with several women – and hopes she has been as supportive for her pal as she has been to her in the past. She said: ‘Of course, it’s hard when any of your friends go through something upsetting. But all you can do is be as supportive as you possibly can be. ‘With Cheryl and Nicola Roberts, it’s the same. I don’t know why we’ve bonded like we have, but I’d count them among my best friends. I look back at certain moments and think, ‘What would I have done without them?’ I wouldn’t have coped.’ While Kimberley is close to Cheryl and Nicola, she admits she has ‘drifted apart’ from Los Angeles-based bandmate Nadine Coyle and admits they don’t socialise together. She told Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine: ‘People look for conflict where there isn’t any. In any group there will be people you are really on the same wavelength as and others where it’s different. But it doesn’t mean we’re not friends. It’s like anyone you work with – you can get on really well but that doesn’t mean you want to go on holiday with them. ‘Nadine lives in Los Angeles now so it’s inevitable you grow apart.’ Despite the Irish singer quashing rumours of a rift between the group, bandmate Sarah Harding recently admitted she didn’t even know Nadine had made a trip to London recently. She said: ‘I didn’t even now she was in London – I only found out when I saw the paper. Because she’s in Los Angeles, I don’t really talk to her.”
Designer Roberto Cavalli Hopes To Snag Cheryl Cole For New Campaign. Cheryl Cole may be having a rough go with husband Ashley Cole and his recent revelations of cheating, but on an up note, the “X-Factor” judge won’t be out of work anytime soon. It is rumored that three major fashion houses are vying to snag the beauty to be the face of their upcoming campaigns. While two of the companies have not been disclosed, designer Roberto Cavalli is speaking up about his goal of making Cole a face for his newest collection. Rumors are flying that Cavalli offered Cole around $2 million to appear in the upcoming autumn/winter ad campaign. Cavalli recently stated, “Cheryl is a great brand icon. She is the Victoria Beckham for a new generation of women. Her fashion credentials aren’t yet up to Victoria’s, but she combines beauty, poise and elegance with warmth and a big personality.” On another note, Cheryl is unfortunately battling bronchitis. The singer has cancelled two upcoming public performances after falling ill. Cole has cancelled an interview on “Friday Night with Jonathan Ross” and a live performance on the U.K. station Radio One. A source told ContactMusic.com, “Cheryl has been a trouper up until now but the pressure has finally got to her. She is very sick and feeling very, very low. The bronchitis has knocked her off her feet.” Cole’s spokesperson said, “Cheryl has had to postpone all promotion until she is better.”
Cheryl Cole Doesn’t Want Ashley’s Money In Divorce Settlement In what is beginning to look like an ugly public split between former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole and estranged husband and soccer star Ashley Cole, new reports are now saying that Cheryl “won’t fight for her husband’s money,” and instead wants to erase him from her life as quickly as possible. Following a string of allegations of infidelity, Ashley – who is beginning to look like the Tiger Woods of the U.K. – has hit back at his wife, blaming her and her mother for the demise of their marriage. Ashley claims that since Cheryl’s mother, Joan, moved in with the couple two years ago, the couple’s sex life has suffered, forcing the Chelsea star to look elsewhere for satisfaction. Meanwhile, Cheryl, who is back in the U.K. after a quick trip to L.A., has kept quiet and instead wants to proceed with their divorce as fast as she can. A source tells the U.K.’s Sun: “Cheryl has not yet appointed a divorce lawyer but she is going through names and setting up meetings. She says she wants the divorce to go through as quickly as possible. Her statement made no mention of a divorce, but that was only for Ashley’s sake.” The source continues: “She will not be fighting for a huge settlement. She just wants to get our fast so she can press on with life and move on. The initial advice is that it speeds up the process if there is no claim for money. The more the couple can agree on, the quicker they can get their divorce stamped.” Meanwhile, rumors are circulating that Ashley’s mother is trying to step in to save the couple’s marriage as a “go-between” person, with little effect.
Liam Gallagher outraged the BRIT Awards lastnight (16.02.10), throwing his trophy in the crowd and snubbing his brother. The former Oasis singer appeared to collect the award for BRITS Album of 30 Years, a publicly voted accolade for the best album since the event started. Liam appeared onstage briefly to collect the trophy, and thanked the band’s line up – apart from his brother Noel, the band’s main songwriter and second vocalist. Referring to one of the group’s hits, Liam said: “I’d like to thank Bonehead, Guigsy, Alan White…. the best bands in the f**king world live forever.” He then threw his microphone and the award into the audience and walked offstage. Oasis split last year after a fallout between the volatile Gallagher brothers, and while Noel is recording a new solo album, Liam has formed a new band with the rest of the group’s members. Backstage at the event, he said: “I don’t know if we deserved it because there has been loads of great albums over the last 30 years. “But if they’re gonna give it to us then I’ll play the game and turn up and get it. “Now can we go and take loads of Class A drugs?” The missing microphone caused panic among the award organisers, and while the show was at an advert break, one of the stage team pleaded for its safe return. He announced: “We need this mic back. Please, if you have the mic will you return it, as one of our artists will not be able to perform without it.” The microphone thrown by Liam was given back and the show went on. Other performances at the event included rock band Kasabian, who performed their single ‘Fire’ on a stage which was partially engulfed in flames. They later won the award for British Group. Cheryl Cole – who is currently undergoing troubles in her marriage to footballer Ashley Cole, after he was caught sending lewd messages to other women – also performed her single ‘Fight For This Love’ singing through what appeared to be gritted teeth as she did a dance routine reminiscent of Michael Jackson
