Cheryl Fernandez-Versini was granted a divorce in only 14 seconds after she blamed her second husband’s ‘unreasonable behaviour’.
The former Girls Aloud star was handed a decree nisi ending her marriage to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini at the Central Family Court in London.
The couple, who did not appear in court, split at the end of 2015 after less than 18 months of marriage. It is understood they had signed a pre-nuptial agreement, meaning Mr Fernandez-Versini walked away with none of Cheryl’s estimated £20million fortune. Both parties also signed a confidentiality agreement, preventing either from talking about their time together or of their split.
The divorce will allow Cheryl to change her name and focus on her relationship with One Direction’s Liam Payne, who she is rumoured to be expecting a child with.
