Cheryl has been showered with attention since she revealed her relationship to One Direction singer Liam Payne earlier this year, and not all of it has been positive.

One Direction fans are notoriously hard on the girls the boys in the band are dating and, amid rumours that she is ‘pregnant’ with Liam’s baby, they have even accused her of carrying someone else’s child!

Well, Cheryl has no problems hearing all of that. Talking to Fabulous magazine, she had the perfect response: ‘The good thing about being in your 30s is that you know yourself better. I learned to be less apologetic and not to give a s**t what people say.’

With her divorce to ex-husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini finalised and her relationship with Liam going from strength to strength, she also admitted how happy she is. Something we are glad to hear!




She told the magazine: ‘I’m happier than I’ve ever been before.’ Before adding: ‘Now is a very good time in my life.’

The pair originally met each other on The X Factor, and they’ve kept their romance relatively out of the public eye. Recently, the former judge has been embracing a more “normal” way of life.

‘I’m in the kitchen loads these days. I went out for dinner with Jamie Oliver and I was completely inspired.’

Okay, going out for dinner with famous chefs might not really be normal, but she’s getting there. It’s good to see the star on the up-and-up, despite any negative feedback she’s getting. You go girl!
