Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts has claimed Cheryl Cole is still ‘undecided’ on whether to divorce her love-rat husband, Ashley Cole.
The X Factor queen, who split from Ashley in February may have been urged by family and friends to ditch the cheating footballer but Chezza’s bandmate Nicola has insisted Cheryl is still figuring out what to do.
The red head told Grazia magazine: “Right now, she’s trying to manage her feelings. Cheryl wants to be in charge of her own life and not listen to anybody else but her heart.`”
“Everybody has an opinion about her marriage now and she thinks it’s wrong. She doesn’t want to make a choice because of others. She even told her mum to back off a bit.”
Roberts added: “She wants to figure things out with Ashley. She’s the one who has to live with the decision. She is annoyed that everyone is so opinionated around her about her private life and it makes things harder for her.”
The Promise singer also told the magazine that Cheryl, who is reportedly ready to scrap her married name has never opened up about her feelings about Ashley’s supposed infidelity or their separation.
She said: “Cheryl has never asked for help or showed me how much she really struggles or how hurt she is…She is going through tough times right now, I know. She has a brave soul and she finds it hard to give up on things she believes in, especially Ashley.”
Nicola continued: “He was her life – everything. She’s not the type of girl who needs to cry on someone’s shoulder. But knowing Cheryl, she will return from it stronger than ever. She is so brave.”
