Cheryl Fernandez-Versini isn't getting that quickie divorce from Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini she wanted.
Despite filing the papers for it back in 2015, the estranged couple are still very much married.
One source dished:
"Cheryl filed for divorce before Christmas and hoped things would be done and dusted by now as she is keen to move on with her life and new relationship with Liam [Payne]… This should have been dealt with absolutely ages ago but things have turned very sour."
There's more though!

Nicole Scherzinger Burns Her Broadway Bridges, Ditching Cats For X Factor… And Andrew Lloyd Webber Is Absolutely FURIOUS!
We love her… but this is a TERRIBLE career move!
And it sure doesn't hurt that Andrew Lloyd Webber himself is her biggest supporter having utilized her numerous times as Christine in Phantom of the Opera.
Unfortunately, it seems as though Nicole isn't too appreciative of the legend taking a chance on a pop star because she just chose X Factor over one of the most famous musicals of all time!
Apparently, Nicky was supposed to begin rehearsals for Cats on Broadway next week but decided last minute to return to the UK singing competition now that Cheryl, Rita Ora, and Nick Grimshaw have all quit!
The Right Honourable Lord Webber is rightfully pissed because he actually believed she was set to win the Tony Award for her role as Grizabella in 2017, saying:
Five down, one to go.
The singer — who is totally not Becky with the Good Hair — apparently followed fellow judges Nick Grimshaw and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, as well as cohosts Olly Murs and Caroline Flack, out the door, leaving just Simon Cowell and the recently returned Dermot O'Leary as the faces of the show.
Rita shared her decision in a heartfelt message to fans on Twitter late Monday night, saying:
Sounds like they could seriously use some work from home days…
Dinah Jane Hansen, Ally Brooke, Camila Cabello, Normani Kordei, and Lauren Jauregui are currently on the cover of Billboard Magazine looking all sexy and confident, but in the pages they get surprisingly real about their struggles.
For one thing, Camila opens up about how going from auditioning for X Factor as a soloist to being in an A-List band gave her unbelievable anxiety, saying:
"I'll start with the low because that led to the high: I was having terrible anxiety, nonstop. My heart would beat really fast the whole day. Two hours after I woke up, I'd need a nap because my body was so hyperactive. It was so eff — sorry, but it was so f*cked up. I was scared of what would happen to me, of the things my brain might tell me. I realized the stuff I thought was important isn't worth my health. Now I write in a diary every day, work out and meditate."
We're glad she figured out what works best for her!
However, Lauren shares similar feelings about the Simon Cowell singing competition:
Music Exec L.A. Reid Says Prince's Death Is 'Mysterious' As The Singer Was 'Super Healthy' & 'Wasn't An Abuser Of Drugs'
As one of the music industry's top executives, there's no doubt L.A. Reid had a close relationship with Prince.
As you're aware, the music icon was found dead in his Minnesota estate on Thursday morning. Although the exact cause of death remains unconfirmed, his reps maintain Prince was suffering from the flu. Other reports claim a potential drug overdose triggered his untimely passing. An autopsy is set to be conducted today.
The 59-year-old producer appeared on the Today show on Friday morning to mourn the loss of his beloved friend and collaborator.
Reid told Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer that he is deeply shocked by the news — especially considering how healthy he had known the Purple Rain singer to be:
"The thing that really bothers me about it is the Prince I know was, like, super healthy. Vegan, wasn't an abuser of drugs, wasn't an abuser of alcohol, you know. He lived right, and he was clean. He looked young, he looked really healthy and vibrant. So the whole thing is really mysterious to me."
That is very strange!
He continued by remembering his talented friend:
