Frustration as Cheryl Cole's comeback is tarnished by ex Ashley Cole
The dust had barely settled after Cheryl Cole‘s amazing comeback performance when her love rat ex-husband found himself public enemy No 1 again.
Although Cheryl (and her abs) wowed us with her first live performance of new song Crazy Stupid Love on the Britain’s Got Talent final, it was Ashley Cole, 33, who made headlines the next day when it was revealed LA police want to quiz him over an alleged ‘battery’ claim by TV presenter Donatella Panayiotou.
Blundering Ashley‘s latest scandal comes just as things were looking up for Cheryl, 30.
She’s thrilled to be back on The X Factor, has a hot new BF in the shape of Frenchman Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, 32, and she’s never looked better. In fact, after he saw her recently, her pal Simon Cowell revealed: ‘I think she looked and sounded the best I’ve seen her in years. She’s in a much better place than I’ve ever seen her before.’
However, now Ashley‘s alleged bad behaviour has yet again cast a shadow over her life. Doesn’t it seem that whenever Cheryl does something positive, her past comes back to haunt her?
A source close to Cheryl says: ‘The timing of the Ashley drama couldn’t have been worse. She doesn’t want to be associated with him. That’s what riles her the most – she doesn’t want her name dragged up in everything he does.
‘She’s just launched her solo comeback and is back on top and excited to be mentoring new talent on The X Factor again. But now Ashley‘s latest drama is threatening to overshadow it all. It’s humiliating.’
