Cheryl Fernandez-Versini isn't keeping quiet!
Ever since word of her romance with Liame Payne got out last month, the gorgeous gal has been taking some serious social media sh*t!
Plenty of people have taken to the internet to bash the brunette beauty about her relationship with the One Direction alum, especially focusing on the fact that she's ten years old than him.

Well, the 32-year-old has had ENOUGH.
On Thursday, the singer took to Instagram to pen a powerful message to all the trolls out there — particularly the women.
She shared a photo of a quote that read:
"Girls compete with each other. Women empower one another."
But the Girls Aloud member REALLY got into it in the caption, explaining that she doesn't understand why women attack each other, writing:
"☝🏼️🙌🏼👏🏼 It can be so hard at times being a girl, for sooo many reasons! But we don't have to make it harder for each other.. Why do we still feel the need to do that ?? I don't understand it. I have always been a Girls girl, and love other strong women. That is why I surround myself with them, and that is why I try to empower others."
She continued by telling her critics that it's not a good look, and encourages them to change their ways, adding:
"Trying to pull another person down, only speaks volumes about your character.! And not a thing about theirs.. There's nothing more powerful or beautiful than an inspiring, strong women that you can look up to or turn to… Be one!!!"
And then on Friday, the X Factor UK judge posted a simple selfie (above), and decided to clarify her previous comments, saying there's nothing cryptic about them:
"My posts are not ever intended to be 'cryptic' or hold 'hidden message'. If they're quotes then they're usual on general topics I care about and not about any personal situation I may be experiencing at the time. Not my style. Just easy and lazy writing for some 😘 Just wanted to clarify 😁Have a nice day 🙋🏻❤️"
She isn't the one who spoke out about this sensitive subject! Her main man also vaguely hinted at the digital backlash on Twitter earlier this week.
The former 1D member posted:
We're just glad Cheryl isn't afraid to stand up for herself!
