Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s wedding to French businessman Jean-Bernard is rumored to have been on the rocks for a few months now, and the UK’s X Factor judge is thought to be getting closer to Craig David.
News of a divorce came out in January, when it was revealed Cheryl wanted to end the 19-month marriage.
Although neither Cheryl nor Jean-Bernard have confirmed their split officially, she previously cited his “unreasonable behavior” to explain the couple going their separate ways, as the Inquisitr reported.
But there could be a new love interest in Cheryl’s life, and it’s none other than singer Craig David, who the Geordie star met on the X Factor last year when he performed with her mentorees Reggie ‘n’ Bollie at the star-packed X Factor finale.
When they met a few months ago, the atmosphere between them was described as “electric.”
And Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has had enough of her husband’s jealousy, which was reported as “overwhelming.”
First came drama and rumors surrounding Jean-Bernard’s supposed jealousy over Cheryl spending too much time with her dogs. The 35-year-old Frenchman denied those and posted an Instagram photo of a pup as a response, which was reported by ibtimes.
So, we can bet Jean-Bernard isn’t going to like the new gossips surrounding his wife, Cheryl, and in particular, one in the Sun which reports that Craig David has been giving the Brit just what she needs.
“Cheryl has needed fun and friendship in recent months and Craig has given her that. They speak a lot and there is something special between them.”
But Cheryl’s also been spending a lot of time with her best friends, and was recently a bridesmaid for former bandmate Kimberley Walsh at her Barbados wedding.
In spite of these strong statements, the Sun also believes and reports that Fernandez-Versini himself is still chasing his beautiful bride, refusing to give up on their union. According to the newspaper, Jean-Bernard regularly sends Cheryl gifts and romantic letters.
A member of his family reportedly said that Fernandez-Versini was not ready to give up on Cheryl. He added that the couple were trying for a baby and that he still wanted to form a family with her.
According to the relative, Jean-Bernard had a special Valentine’s Day present planned for Cheryl, too.
But reports of “something special” growing between Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, 32, and Craig David, 34, are still popping up all over the internet. They could even be working on an album together, after they got chatting on the X Factor where Craig did his comeback by performing with the duo Cheryl was mentoring.
Apparently big fans of each other, Cheryl and Craig decided to work together on her upcoming album and the When The Bassline Drops singer could even write a track for the former Girls Aloud chick.
And Cheryl’s been dropping hints that she was ready to move onto new projects, with an Instagram post indicating she was heading to the studios again. It could be perfect timing for both artists, with Craig’s long-awaited new album, Following My Intuition, out later this year.
Although sources close to the star insist they are just friends, Craig’s been a supportive shoulder for Cheryl during the difficult times she has gone through splitting up from her husband.
What do you think, is this just another rumour or is romance possible between Cheryl and Craig? Could they be the musical couple of 2016?
