Nadine Coyle has fuelled further rumours of a Girls Aloud rift by failing to join the rest of the band in supporting Cheryl Cole perform on X Factor.
Sarah Harding, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts all watched Cheryl perform new single Promise This at the X Factor studios in London on Saturday night before going back to Cheryl’s dressing room to celebrate while Nadine was a no-show.
However, just 24 hours later, LA-based Nadine, who in the past has admitted it’s difficult to keep in touch with the rest of the girls, due to the distance between them, turned up on the red carpet at the Q Awards in London.
A source said: “It seemed strange that Nadine wasn’t supporting Cheryl along with the rest of the girls at the studios, especially as she was going to be in London less than 24 hours after the show.”
At the weekend Nadine told Fabulous magazine: “I don’t speak to the girls, not regularly. But that doesn’t mean there’s a problem on my part. I can only speak for myself because I don’t know what’s going on in other people’s personal lives, but there’s no animosity. Not from me, anyway.”
Asked which member of Girls Aloud she is closest to, Nadine replied: “At the mminute, none of them. We’ve known each other since we were 16 and everybody moves on. It’s just one of those things.
“Me and the girls always work together really well. But don’t worry because, as far as friendships go, I’ve got loads and loads of friends. I’m really not struggling in that area.”
