The star snuck out of the country yesterday as rumours fly about the strength of her marriage to Ashley
Cheryl Cole snuck out of the country yesterday amid rumours she is ready to end her marriage.
Leaving hubby Ashley brooding at home, Ms Cole jetted off to LA for a planned writing and recording trip, according to her publicist.
She’s also thought to have been invited to stay with David and Victoria Beckham during the trip, to try and ride out the publicity storm.
And now rumours have surfaced that a split could be announced ‘within weeks,’ after Ashley’s nude texting and alleged affair.
‘Cheryl is exhausted with it all. There was a point when she was going to ride it all out, but she has heard rumours of more women and cannot face it. They will split within weeks,’ one insider said.
Significantly, the worried songstress was sporting a strange sparkler on her wedding finger as she breezed through the airport yesterday – certainly not the £160,000 engagement ring given to her by her hubby.
In fact just months ago she gave fans a close up of her usual ring, flashing the rocks on Twitter, accompanied by the caption: ‘3 Words. Diamonds Are Forever.’
And friends say swapping her sparkler for a decoy is a significant move. ‘Cheryl’s most treasured possession is her diamond wedding ring,’ one said.
‘To onlookers it looks like she’s a married woman – but to Ashley it’s a clear sign that she feels their relationship is in big, big trouble.’
