Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is ready for a name change… AGAIN!
On Sunday, it was reported that the X Factor judge is preparing to drop her married name following the split from husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini and as her new relationship with Liam Payne goes public. It is so ON!
Apparently, the I Don’t Care singer is looking to revert back to her maiden name Tweedy or to her first husband’s surname Cole. Hmm, very inneresting!
In case you forgot, the brunette beauty married her second husband back in July of 2014 after only dating the restaurateur for three months. The duo’s relationship has been reportedly on the rocks for sometime, so the 32-year-old is simply seeking to distance herself together.
A source told The Sun:
“Cheryl doesn’t want people to use the Fernandez-Versini last name wherever that is possible. She wants to put the marriage and an unhappy chapter in her life behind her.
But there are obviously practical matters to sort out and she can’t drop it officially until the decree nisi is granted. At the moment there’s still wrangling going on over the terms of the divorce.”
Well that makes sense! It’s said that the former Girls Aloud member is considering taking her ex Ashley Cole‘s last name since it is the most recognizable. The insider continued:
“Cheryl Cole became a brand. It wasn’t about Ashley in the end. A lot of people still refer to her as Cheryl Cole because it was under that name that she went from a girl band member to a massive superstar and household name.
Obviously she has a connection to that name and it’s really become nothing to do with Ashley or their relationship, which is entirely separate and caused her a lot of pain.”
Perhaps, Liam’s new squeeze will pull an Adele and simply go by Cheryl from now on. Who knows at this point!
