Cheryl Cole Having Breakdown In LA?
As her ex-hubby Ashley is said to have hatched a plan to win her back...
According to Now magazine, the Girls Aloud star is struggling with life Stateside, so much so that she has been constantly upset and calling Ashley and her mother, Joan Callaghan after feeling lonely.
The publication also claims that Chezza, who is trying to give up smoking, has turned to eating comforting junk food - bingeing on chips, pizza and KFC.
A source told the mag: "Cheryl's in a bad place emotionally at the moment. She feels like the world's against her and nothing's going right."
The X Factor judge, who is still waiting to hear whether she has landed a place on the US version of the talent show, is also said to have asked her mum to come to LA…otherwise she will turn to Ashley for support.
They continued: "Cheryl, who's been crying herself to sleep, told Joan if she couldn't get there, she'd be forced to call Ashley."
"What her mum doesn't realise is she's in constant touch with her ex-husband as he's really the only one who seems to understand what she's going through."
The Promise This singer has reportedly told pals in America that she is unwell, with a source claiming that Chezza's apparent sickness isn't true and that she is in fact in bed eating junk food.
A hotel insider told Now: "She's barely left the hotel and when she does it's for a quick swim or treatment, then she goes back indoors again."
They added: "During the day she's ordering room service a lot and has been eating Asian chicken salads and fruit plates and drinking sparkling water, but at night her diet completely changes. She's been ordering Domino's pizza and getting staff to bring her McDonald's."
While Cheryl is allegedly finding it tough in America, sources have also claimed that Ashley is hoping to get back together with the gorgeous Geordie later this year.
An insider claimed to the magazine: "Ash is telling everyone he's got Cheryl wrapped round his finger."
They stated: "He's doing his best to win her back and is confident they'll be reunited by the end of this summer."
According to The Sun, the Chelsea footballer is also planning to win back his ex-wife by buying a property in Dubai - one of Cheryl's favourite countries.
It is thought he is hoping the gesture will woo Chezza, with Cole telling pals he wants to remarry the Fight For This Love hitmaker.
A friend told the tabloid that Ashley has claimed: "Cheryl loves Dubai and I'm investing heavily there because of it. We love each other and we will be together again."
They added: "He truly believes the divorce is temporary. When he retires he sees them moving away. He says the only reason they split was because she had to be seen to act after his affairs."
