London: Former Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole says she got tested for sexually transmitted diseases after she found out her husband Ashley Cole had been cheating on her.

The `Under The Sun` singer was devastated when Ashley`s infidelities were revealed and went for tests to make sure she wasn`t at risk, reported Contactmusic.

Writing in her new book, `Cheryl: My Story`, she says, "His infidelity had been putting me at risk for a long time. I had to put my mind at rest. I was sad, sick and felt fury like I`d never experienced," she added.

Cole divorced the England soccer player in 2010 following revelations he had cheated on her with a string of women.
