London: Cheryl Cole’s divorce from estranged husband Ashley is just weeks away, it has emerged.
Legal experts have said the singer is just a couple of weeks away from cutting all ties with Chelsea defender Ashley, 29.
Cheryl, 27, started divorce proceedings in May, three months after she split from Ashley over his cheating with a string of girls.
“Cheryl’s getting near to being fully fit again and feels there’s one major obstacle to her recovery – finally kicking Ashley into touch,” a news daily quoted a pal as saying.
“The stress of her break-up and divorce proceedings hasn’t helped her recovery. Now she’s over the worst, all Cheryl wants to do is get her divorce and move on in life.
“She was naturally unable to sort out her divorce stuff while she was seriously ill. Now she is keen to bring her marriage to Ashley to a close and he feels the same. Neither wants to drag things out.
“Cheryl feels that finally becoming free of her marriage ties will be the tonic she needs to complete her recovery. She wants to look forward, not back. And that means finding a new man and eventually becoming a mum,” the pal added.
