Cheryl Cole has reportedly resumed her work schedule just one week after announcing her separation from husband Ashley.
The Girls Aloud star was allegedly taken to a North London studio to shoot a new shampoo TV advert.
“She looked tired and drawn but determined to put her work face on and to give a good performance,” a source told The Mirror.
“Working keeps her mind off her turbulent private life. She’s going to wash Ashley right out of her hair.”
Cole was recently confirmed to perform a headline set at the V Festival in August.
Posted February 23, 2010on:
Cheryl Cole has announced that she is to separate from her cheating husband Ashley Cole.
The X Factor star, who has been left devastated by the Chelsea football star’s string of betrayals, will call time on her three-and-a-half-year marriage, the Daily Mail has learned.
The 26-year-old this afternoon released a statement which read: ‘Cheryl Cole is separating from her husband Ashley Cole. Cheryl asks the media to respect her privacy during this difficult time.
‘We have no further comment to make.’
Mrs Cole had spent the past week in Los Angeles and flew into Heathrow Airport this morning. The star wore large black sunglasses and a trilby hat as she was ushered through the airport by two police officers. Tellingly, she was not wearing her wedding ring.
The singer’s silver Mercedes arrived home at 12.18pm, while just hours before, crocked Chelsea and England player Ashley left the mansion in a black Mercedes, with his crutches clearly on display – while he was believed to be hiding in the back seat.
Another source revealed: ‘Cheryl now just wants to move on. She’s had enough.’
Before returning to the UK yesterday morning, Mrs Cole viewed a number of properties in Los Angeles
These included a stunning Spanish-style five-bedroomed, six-bathroomed villa in the Hollywood Hills, which is on the market at £2.1 million
It has its own 800-bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar, outdoor barbecue and kitchen plus a stunning swimming pool and lies above the legendary Hollywood Bowl concert venue.
The star also visited a house in Beverly Hills but rejected that because she, ironically, believed it was too much like a ‘footballer’s wives’ home.’
Meanwhile, her close friend and confidante Derek Hough has told a friend he is eager for Mrs Cole to move to the US as he revealed she is ‘wonderful.’
Mr Hough, 24, was first introduced to Mrs Cole last October.
He then appeared on her one-off TV special at Christmas and also appears in the video for her forthcoming single Parachute, which is released next month.
He told the friend: ‘Cheryl is wonderful, simply wonderful. It’s terrible what she’s been going through.’
‘I hope she moves out here. That would be great.’
He also revealed that Mrs Cole would be coming back to support him during the new series of Dancing With The Stars, in which he is one of the main dancers.
He continued to the friend: ‘She’s certainly making time to come back and support me in the series.’
During their seven-and-a-half hours together at the London hotel in West Hollywood on Sunday night the pair also took pictures of Mrs Cole and Mr Hough’s dog on his mobile telephone.
Just weeks ago, the singer was planning to start a family with Cole and quit the X Factor.
However, now Mrs Cole is even considering moving to the U.S. following the breakdown of her marriage, which will work well with an offer from Simon Cowell to be a judge on his planned American X Factor next year, the Daily Mail has learned.
Cole was first exposed for cheating on his wife in 2008 with hairdresser Aimee Walton.
Earlier this month, it was revealed explicit pictures of him were sent from his phone to Page Three girl Sonia Wild.
And last week, Mrs Cole was left devastated when allegations emerged claiming he had slept with Vicki Gough, a 30-year-old secretary at Liverpool FC.
One of Cole’s alleged one-night stands - the fourth to come forward - then claimed he had sobbed down the phone to her that he would die if he lost his wife over their fling.
He is said to have pleaded with U.S. political aide Ann Corbitt to keep quiet about twice having unprotected sex with her in a Seattle hotel last July when Chelsea was on a pre-season tour.
A fifth alleged flame, Alexandra Taylor, also came forward to say she had sex with Cole on the night he ‘went public’ with Cheryl in 2004.
Meanwhile, it has also emerged Cole faces a battle for his future at Chelsea Football Club in the light of the scandal.
He faces a suspension or ‘meaningful’ fine from Chelsea after claims he hoodwinked the club into covering up his philandering.
Cole is due to be brought before Chelsea’s board as early as Friday to explain himself. The club decided to act because the defender’s alleged affair occurred while he was ‘on duty’ during a tour.
Cheryl Cole is rumoured to have been dating a 24-year-old dancer and Ashley Cole is not happy about it. The X Factor Judge told her husband Ashley Cole, the marriage was over and according to reports, dating the dancer shows that there is no going back.
The X Factor Judge who has been seen regularly with dancer Derek Hough since she escaped the UK after newspaper reports of her husband cheating on her, has denied that any romance has taken place and claimed that the couple are just good friends.
However, Cheryl Cole was seen leaving her dancer friend at 4am at a Los Angeles hotel leaving little to the imagination of what went on with the pair.
Sources close to Cheryl Cole have denied that any sexual relationship is taking place and claims that Derek is being a good friend and helping The Girls Aloud singer through this troubled time.
Cheryl Cole, 29, is now back in the UK where she is expected to make an announcement that her marriage is over with Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole while sources close to Derek Hough have claimed he is smitten with Cheryl Cole.
Ashley Cole went mad when he heard about his wife and the dancer according to a source within Chelsea Football club. According to the source, Ashley intended to do whatever it took to get his wife back but feels if the claims are true that his wife has been having a relationship with the dancer, then he has lost her for good.
Cheryl Cole would not be the only thing Ashley Cole has lost this week; the footballer was fined £200,000 for bringing shame on Chelsea football club over his antics off the field.
Cheryl Cole has topped a UK poll to find the most popular karaoke songs of 2010.
The singer’s debut solo single ‘Fight For This Love’ has been crowned the nation’s most popular track to sing in the survey conducted by Lucky Voice Home, beating off competition from Lady GaGa and Lily Allen.
The total figures are released today on the company’s official website – an online karaoke service with over 33,000 users and a catalogue of over 6,000 songs.
According to the results, Cole’s number one hit has seen a 110% week-on-week growth in popularity on the site since reports surfaced about husband Ashley’s alleged infidelities.
After weeks of furious speculation, Now can sensationally reveal that Cheryl and Ashley Cole’s marriage is over.
One last private phone call between the pair has taken place and official statements confirming the split have been drafted.
All that remains is for Cheryl, 26, to give her team the green light to release the news and the collapse of her marriage will be final.
In a remarkably businesslike approach, even for ambitious Cheryl, her focus is now entirely on her career plans.
She sent a clear sign to fans last week when she boarded a plane for LA the day after her Brits performance without any reconciliation with Ashley – and minus her wedding ring.
Despite repeated denials from her camp, Now revealed back in December that Cheryl was planning a move to LA in February, leaving
Ashley behind. We can also reveal the couple said their goodbyes and ended things privately weeks ago, long before last week’s allegation that he slept with a secretary and further claims of infidelity in the Sunday tabloids.
Our source says: ‘Cheryl’s spent most of her time in hotels since the start of the year, from where the split has been quietly managed. Tears over 30-year-old Ashley’s behaviour are reserved for when she’s alone with her mum Joan Callaghan. In public, she’s determined to be cool and confident.
‘She plans to leave Ashley. But don’t expect her to bow to pressure and do that now there have been a few stories about his cheating. She’ll do it when it suits her and that could be during the World Cup this summer, when it would cause him the most humiliation. She’s determined that he’ll suffer.’
Cheryl has a suite at London’s May Fair hotel, courtesy of her record company Universal. She’s spent most of the past two weeks there, but after returning from LA insiders expect her to return at least once to the mansion that she shares with Ashley in Oxshott, Surrey, to dampen speculation.
Tellingly, a holiday the pair had planned months ago to immediately follow the Brits was firmly cancelled this week. Instead, Cheryl flew to the US.
Our source says: ‘It’s obvious the marriage is in trouble, but Cheryl hates giving in to tabloid pressure.
‘She expected the end of the marriage to become front page news, but it was never part of the plan for a litany of sex scandals to overshadow this crucial stage of her career.
‘Cheryl’s furious that Ashley’s ruined a week when she should’ve been enjoying the spotlight. These embarrassing, sleazy kiss’n'tell stories and Ashley’s ridiculous excuses overshadowed her Brits performance and made her a laughing stock.
‘But Cheryl will get her revenge. She’s taking her time to do it properly. Ashley’s already feeling down because he’s at home nursing an injury and he’s desperate to play in the World Cup. She’ll wait until it’s meant to be his moment and then drop the bombshell – on her terms.
‘By that time, she’ll have had a couple of months in the US under her belt and will look like the strong one, while he’ll be at his most vulnerable and will be made to look a fool.’
Cheryl Cole has reportedly dumped her husband Ashley by sending him a text message, after articles in the press last week accused the footballer of having a number of affairs.
According to The Sun, Cheryl (who flew out to LA to work on new songs last Wednesday) sent Ashley a message yesterday (Sunday 21st Feb) telling him their marriage was over.
The paper claims the text read: “Move out. It’s over.” An insider then told the tabloid: “Cheryl has decided enough is enough and she is going to divorce him. She has told Ashley to get out of the family home because she does not wish to see him.
“She has no desire to hear any more excuses or explanations. Grand gestures will not help either. When she left for America last week she wasn’t exactly sure of her future.”
The source then added: “She wants to have put a statement out by the end of the week so she can start moving on. She has no desire to humiliate Ashley further and wishes to proceed in a dignified manner.”
Cheryl Cole has dumped husband Ashley after three years of marriage, according to a report today.
The Sun claims that the X Factor judge broke the news to Ashley in a text message from Los Angeles early yesterday, telling him: “Move out. It’s over.”
It is thought that Cheryl started considering a divorce after arriving in the States days ago, but finally made her mind up at the weekend following fresh infidelity allegations which were made against Ashley.
A source said: “Cheryl has decided enough is enough and she is going to divorce him. She has told Ashley to get out of the family home because she does not wish to see him. She has no desire to hear any more excuses or explanations.”
Claiming that the news will be officially confirmed within days, the insider added: “She wants to have put a statement out by the end of the week so she can start moving on. She has no desire to humiliate Ashley further and wishes to proceed in a dignified manner.”
The latest scandal to hit the Coles’ marriage began earlier this month when Ashley was accused of sending sex texts to two women. It was later claimed that the footballer had slept with one of the girls and further allegations have followed since then.
Derek Hough does fancy Cheryl Cole according to his ex Raquelle Garcie. Raquelle appeared in The X Factor 2007 with the girl band Hope. She has said that Derek confessed that he thought The X Factor judge was “an amazing woman”.
However, Garcie added that he would never cheat with a married woman and is “just being a friend” Cheryl can turn to.
She told The People: “Derek thinks Cheryl is an amazing woman. She is just his type, you can tell by the women he has been with before.
“He loves gorgeous women who are talented. And women like that love him because he’s a bit eccentric and a musician.
“He definitely fancies her. Whether they become a couple is simply up to Cheryl. Derek would be up for it.”
Raquelle dated Derek when he was as the London’s Italia Conti performing arts school and they are still close pals.
She added that he would wait until the Girls Aloud singer had split from her husband Ashley before he began a relationship with her.
She said: “He’s very moralistic. He’s a very kind, caring guy and was a great shoulder for me to cry on when we dated at college.
“He will be a fantastic help for Cheryl. But he would never ever do anything unless she was single. He’s not the sort of guy that would cheat.”
Cheryl Cole has allegedly told friends that she should have dumped husband Ashley months ago.
According to the Daily Star, the X Factor judge has been distrustful of her partner for some time and “knew that her marriage was over” late last year.
Ashley has recently been accused of cheating on the Girls Aloud singer with a number of different women.
It is thought that Cheryl, who is currently away in Los Angeles, has now told her loved ones: “I should have dumped him in December!”
A source said: “She can’t bear to be in the same room as him now. She says he has absolutely humiliated her. There is no way back.”
Earlier today, it was reported that Cheryl had dumped Ashley by text, marking the end of their three-year marriage.
Cheryl Cole has referred to rumoured boyfriend Derek Hough as a “sweetheart”.
The pair were recently spotted on a date in Los Angeles in the wake of the ‘Fight For This Love’ singer’s husband Ashley’s alleged affairs with other women.
Speaking to MTV, Cheryl said: “I’ve actually got Derek Hough as the choreographer for this video, he is a massive ballroom dancer!
“I absolutely love Derek’s work so it’s a pleasure to be working with him. He’s a sweetheart and he makes the day more enjoyable.”
The star has reportedly since split with the Chelsea footballer.
