Cheryl Cole has revealed exactly what happened the night that her ex-husband Ashley Cole finally confessed he’d been unfaithful.
In her autobiography, Cheryl: My Story, she says that it was the offer of a cup of tea that clued her in that something strange was going on:
“He hardly ever made tea and I sensed something was off. He’d been acting weird all evening.”
Not long after that, she says, Ashley was “flapping” while taking a call from his agent, before her rep called her to say a newspaper was going to print a story about his cheating.
“I went to the computer, waiting for the story to appear on the [paper’s] website. ‘You need to read this’, I shouted to Ashley. But he wouldn’t. He looked appalled with himself.
“I totally lost it. I was lashing out at Ashley in every way. I hit him in the face – I couldn’t help it. I was shaking him, kicking him, scratching his face, pushing and shoving him like I was a lunatic.”
