It’s All Over! Cheryl Confirms Her Divorce From Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini Has Been Granted
Cheryl has been granted a Decree Nisi, which means her divorce from JB will be finalised in six weeks' time
Now Cheryl can finally move on.
The 33-year-old singer has been granted a Decree Nisi from French hubby Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, after months of reported negotiations.
The divorce was granted in just 14 seconds at London's Central Family Court, though neither Cheryl nor JB were thought to be in attendance.
To explain the legal mumbo jumbo, a Decree Nisi is the first step in finalising their divorce, which means their marriage will officially be over in six weeks’ time when the Decree Absolute will be granted.
Chezza, who is rumoured to be expecting her first baby with boyfriend Liam Payne, is now free to re-marry.
Which is great news for fans of #Chiam!
Cheryl wed JB in a secret ceremony on the Caribbean island of Mustique in July 2014 after a whirlwind romance.
But sadly the pair separated last year after 18 months of marriage.
A rep for Cheryl told the Mirror Online: "Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini have today obtained Decree Nisi in their divorce proceedings.
“No further comment will be made and they ask for their privacy to be respected.”
It is thought that Cheryl will retain all of her estimated £20million fortune.
Now her marriage is finally done, we're hoping loved-up Cheryl and Liam will walk down the aisle.
We’ve got our hat on order!
