Cheryl has allegedly met with the former lawyer of Prince Charles to talk divorce proceedings from love rat hubby Ashley Cole.
Reports suggest the Parachute singer had an appointment with Fiona Shackleton, who represented Prince Charles throughout his divorce from Princess Diana and also fronted Paul McCartney’s legal battle during his split with Heather Mills.
It has been rumoured Cheryl sought the help of Shackleton in a bid to legally end her marriage to the Chelsea FC footballer as quickly as possible.
A source has said: “Cheryl is being told she should not drag this through the courts. Lawyers for Ashley could build a case that she wasn’t the perfect wife either.”
They added: “She has hardly seen him for months on end due to work and her mother Joan’s presence in the house has hardly been conducive to romance,”
The Girls Aloud star has been informed the couple’s assets are likely to divided equally as they have been married for less than four years.
Ashley is said to have cheated on Chezza with a number of women during their marriage with reports today suggesting the couple continuously fought over Cheryl’s friendship with Black Eyed Pea’s front man Will.I.Am.
