Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s husband blasts new ‘stunt’ romance

The husband of British singer and X-Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has branded her new relationship a career-boosting ‘stunt’.
Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, 34, was allegedly left “humiliated” and “insulted” when Cheryl posed with One Direction star Liam Payne on the one-year anniversary of the death of the French restaurateur’s dad.
Posting a yoga snap of himself on Instagram last Friday (26Mar16), Jean-Bernard wrote: “It’s been one year… since my dad passed away… there is not one day I don’t think about you.”
A friend of the Frenchman told Britain’s The Sun newspaper, “What could be better for Cheryl’s career? An unknown Frenchman as her husband or a boy-band star ten years her junior? He really hoped they could salvage the marriage but now feels insulted and humiliated.”
Jean-Bernard and Cheryl tied the knot after a whirlwind romance in July, 2014, splitting up just 13 months later after Cheryl filed for divorce in January (16), citing “irreconcilable differences”.
The pop star’s three-month relationship with Liam was confirmed last Saturday (27Mar16) after a cosy black-and-white snap of the two appeared on Liam’s Instagram.
One Direction fans have hit out the star for dating The Girl’s Aloud singer on Liam’s Instagram (03Mar16), with one fan writing: “I love Cheryl, I don’t love what she’s doing right now. It seems very insensitive when the divorce hasn’t even gone through”
This isn’t the first time the couple has used Instagram to vent its relationship woes. Earlier this year, (Jan16) Jean-Bernard posted a series of cryptic messages hitting out about “lies, dishonesty” and “going through hell”.
Cheryl and Liam’s romance began in December (15), after the X-Factor star first made the decision to divorce her husband.
The One Direction singer previously dated dancer Danielle Peazer for more than two years, but they split in 2013. Liam broke up with girlfriend Sophia Smith last year (15).
