Cheryl’s former manager will.i.am has sent her his best wishes on her pregancy and having finally found happiness with One Direction star Liam Payne. The Voice judge, who managed Cheryl when she went solo, said he was happy that she was no longer unlucky in love.
In an interview the Black Eyed Peas singer said: “Cheryl is awesome and I am so happy for her – she is always in and out of bad relationships.” While will.i.am revealed he had not yet met Liam, he said Cheryl deserved some happiness.
Cheryl, a former X Factor judge, was first married to the footballer Ashley Cole. But the couple split when it emerged that he had cheated on her, with Cheryl later saying that she had coped in public but crumbled in private. She went on to marry French businessman Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Verini following a whirlwind romance. However, they broke up at the end of 2015.
The Fight for this Love singer has also dated American dancer Tre Holloway. However, they are understood to have struggled to keep their long distance relationship alive. She also had a relationship with another dancer the Dancing with the Stars professional Derek Hough after he appeared in her Parachute music video in 2009. Derek, who helped her get over the pain of her first marriage by taking her on a romantic trip to Tanzania, is currently staring in the US country music drama Nashville.
She and Liam first met when she was a judge on the X Factor and he was a contestant. He was just 14 and she was ten years his senior. The couple, now 33 and 23, are expecting their first child together this year, although they have been very private about the pregnancy. Cheryl was spotted sporting a huge baby bump at a carol concert in December, but she still has not confirmed that she is expecting.
