London: Cheryl Cole has asked her former husband Ashley to ditch his mates because she feels that they were partly responsible for their split.
The Chelsea star, who is a huge gaming fan, has also been ordered to check in with Cheryl twice a day to make sure he isn``t up to any funny business.
"Cheryl can`t stand some of Ashley`s mates. She`s convinced a couple of the bad eggs are responsible for him straying,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.
"She`s really cracking down on his nights out.
"There`s no more, ``I`m off out, don`t wait up`` lines coming from him. She``s not taking any prisoners,” the source added.
