It hasn’t been the easiest of weekends for Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.
The 32-year-old has been forced to deny claims that she cheated on her estranged husband Jean-Bernard with now-boyfriend Liam Payne. Eek.
Cheryl and Liam went public with their romance back in February, but rumours emerged yesterday that they actually hooked up last year.
A source told The Sun On Sunday: ‘JB has been told that Cheryl was actually seeing Liam in October – two months before they officially split.
‘The information comes from people at The X Factor. JB was desperate to save their marriage and is absolutely furious.’
Cheryl was quick to hit back, Tweeting: ‘If anybody believes the s*** they’re reading today you really don’t know me at all.’
And supportive Liam, 22, re-Tweeted a fan’s comment reading: ‘Cheryl’s the most selfless and kindhearted human you will ever come across in your life. I just don’t understand why people are so cruel.’
However, things didn’t end there.
According to MailOnline, Jean-Bernard later took to Instagram to share the lengthy post: ‘Since months, papers , “sources ” , lawyers, Pr , management team and others have Been trying to intimating me .. [sic].
‘I have heard so many lies about me , my family ( that cant answer anymore ) and my situation.
‘I never seen anybody standing up and defend me by telling the Truth . I guess because it wasn’t in their interest ..

‘Certain people that love to say that they don’t comment on their private life can’t help themselves but to justify themselves which for me seems even more strange ..’
A spokesperson for Cheryl said: ‘Cheryl does not and is not going to comment upon private matters.
‘Jean-Bernard’s information about when Cheryl started her relationship with Liam is false.’
Cheryl married Jean-Bernard in July 2014. It’s believed she filed for divorce shortly before Christmas, citing ‘unreasonable behaviour’.
