The arrogant love rant vents his anger at Cheryl over her innocent trip to Cannes

After rocking his fragile reunion with Cheryl Cole by hooking up with four other women while he was trying to woo her back, Ashley should be following in the footsteps of other love rats and keeping his mouth shut.

Instead, the arrogant footballer, 30, went into a jealous rage at Cheryl after hearing about her recent trip to Cannes with her manager Will.i.am.

Ash heard about her cosying up to Will and hit the roof,’ says a source.

It was posted on Will’s personal Twitter account, which immediately made Ashley think Cheryl was trying to make a fool of him.

‘So he sent her a text asking what was going on and then sent another saying: “What are you trying to do to me?” He didn’t stop trying to get hold of her.’

What a cheek!
