Cheryl Fernandez-Versini‘s husband Jean-Bernard wants everyone to know that their marriage ISN’T on the rocks.
Despite only getting hitched 16 months ago, the couple have recently been hit by unfounded rumours that they’re going through a rough patch.
This is due to the fact that JB has been absent from a number of Cheryl’s public events, including the past two X Factor live shows.
Other bashes he’s missed include September’s Pride Of Britain Awards, Nicola Roberts’ 30th birthday party in October and the Music Industry Trust Awards earlier this month.
Chezza also went solo to catch her BFF Kimberley Walsh’s debut in new show Elf: The Musical last week.
JB’s said to have been away on business trips, which 32-year-old Cheryl has found a ‘real struggle’ and ‘hard to cope’ through ‘without him by her side’.
It’s also been speculated that her hubby doesn’t enjoy being in the limelight.
But now Jean-Bernard has reportedly hit back on his private Instagram account, emotionally opening up about losing his father earlier this year.
According to the Daily Mirror, JB ranted on the social media site: ‘I normally don’t read or comment… But the truth is that even when my dad died I put my life on the line for my wife.
‘Yes I am working like everybody else to put food on the table but my priority is my wife as this is the last person that is family.

‘This is just nonsense. What matters is family and my wife is my only one left so if she need me I am always going to be there. My wife Cheryl is my priority nothing else.’
Jean-Bernard added that he’s been in London ‘for a week’, saying: ‘If she needs me on X Factor I will be there like I always did in the past.’
You tell ’em, JB.
