The pop singer was granted a decree nisi by a London judge in reportedly just 14 seconds on Thursday to end her marriage to French restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini. Neither party was present.
For those who don’t know, the decree nisi is an “order of the Court confirming that the grounds for the divorce have been proved and that the marriage has irretrievably broken down.” They will have to wait six weeks before applying for a decree absolute, which will finalize the divorce.
Liam Payne‘s girlfriend cited “unreasonable behavior” in the papers, and claimed it had caused her “stress and weight loss.”
You may remember, the 33-year-old filed for divorce at the very beginning of this year, 18 months after the two secretly wed in 2014.
Cheryl’s rep confirmed the news, releasing a statement to MailOnline:
“Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini have today obtained Decree Nisi in their divorce proceedings. No further comment will be made and they ask for their privacy to be respected.”
Additionally, it’s reported the UK native will keep her $20 million fortune.
There you have it!
