Nadine Coyle has insisted that she offered Cheryl support after her separation from husband Ashley.
Speaking to the News of the World, Coyle admitted that she hadn’t seen her Girls Aloud bandmate when she was in Los Angeles but explained that they had just not had time to meet up.
“I sent Cheryl an email and I called her,” she said. “I was like, ‘Hi’. And she said, ‘I’m in LA’.
“I was working on the album and dashing around. She was working and doing her thing. She wasn’t here for very long so we didn’t get the chance to meet up with each other.”
Coyle also denied reports that she believes Cole is “milking” the split.
“I’ve always been close to Cheryl,” she explained. “We’re completely different people. We respect each other for what we’ve done and the different places we’ve come from in life. It’s offensive to say I think she’s milking a really difficult time in her life for success. I would like to know who’s saying we’ve fallen out because I know it’s not coming from me.”
