Liam Payne’s Girlfriend Cheryl Accused Of Manipulating Ex As Baby Bump Insinuated By Press

Liam Payne and Cheryl have been an item for several months, but the truth is that she is still married… and some say she might be showing a baby bump.

However, while Liam Payne and Cheryl have not said they are having a baby, there have been additional rumors that Cheryl is in communication with her soon-to-be-ex-husband’s current alleged girlfriend.

According to The Sun, Liam Payne and Cheryl have been showing the world they are madly in love, but they have been thwarted by baggage from Cheryl’s past. Although they are just rumors, those close to Liam Payne and Cheryl have claimed that they are such a good match that people imagine they will marry soon.

Liam Payne and Cheryl are true lovebirds

Adding to the relationship cement between Liam Payne and Cheryl, there are some speculations in the media after the Vogue 100 Gala that Cheryl is showing more padding around her lower abdomen, and this could mean she is pregnant.

When New asked Liam Payne and Cheryl’s spokespeople about the possibility of a pregnancy around May 23, they stated “This is a personal question and one we refuse to answer.”

Obviously, if Liam Payne and Cheryl are well-paired, they may want to move on with their relationship and make it legal, especially if babies may be on the way. Sadly, there is one person standing in the way of Liam Payne and Cheryl being One Direction’s first newlyweds — Cheryl’s soon-to-be-ex-husband: Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

Although it is not clear if Cheryl broke Jean-Bernard’s heart or vice versa, the couple has been having trouble with the divorce. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Cheryl and Jean-Bernard were initially thwarted because they were married in another country, and the laws of that country stated there was no quick divorce procedure.

Despite this, Cheryl put aside her relationship with Liam Payne, quit X Factor, and put her focus on getting the divorce settled, but Jean-Bernard was not signing the divorce papers.

Now, after being in the same town with both her soon-to-be-ex-husband and current boyfriend, Liam Payne, news has emerged that during Cannes, one of Cheryl’s old friends was obviously getting close to Jean-Bernard.

As it appears, Jean-Bernard is dating Vanessa Perroncel, and this person was Cheryl’s friend from the past, but the two have not necessarily been in touch until recently.

Liam Payne and Cheryl have been enjoying life as a public couple.

Along these lines, there are also rumors that Cheryl is getting her old friend Vanessa Perroncel to push her ex, Jean-Bernard, to sign the divorce papers, according to Lifestyle, and insiders state the following.

“Cheryl feels that Jean-Bernard is stalling on their divorce and just wants everything to be resolved. Vanessa assured her she would do whatever she could to help the situation. Cheryl finally feels like she has a glimmer of hope now she has a connection to Jean-Bernard and they can start talks.”

In the meantime, Liam Payne and Cheryl’s social media shows that they are relaxing.

Around May 20, Cheryl and Liam Payne announced on Twitter that they were joining the Food Revolution with Jamie Oliver, and Liam Payne’s last post was about Oliver’s “sexy chips.”

As for Cheryl, she has been posting clips of herself from Cannes or the Vogue awards ceremony, but she also posted one from Beyonce on May 25.

Of course, no matter which direction Liam Payne and Cheryl are going, it appears that there is no turning back for Cheryl because Sharon Osbourne might be taking her place at X Factor, according to List.

Alternatively, Cheryl might not need to be popular with X Factor or in the U.K. because J-14 claims a source close to Liam Payne and Cheryl is saying that her new focus is on America.

The source adds that Cheryl did not have much success in the past with her own career on television in America, but now that Cheryl and Liam Payne are together, she is cashing in on his American One Direction fans by being more “in demand.”
