Cheryl Cole Weds French Boyfriend Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini In Secret After Whirlwind Three Month Romance
The former Ms Tweedy and ex Mrs Cole is now Cheryl Fernandez-Versin, after marrying her boyfriend in a secret ceremony.
This is not a drill, Cheryl Cole is now a married woman! The ‘Crazy Stupid Love’ singer wed her boyfriend Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in secret last week, after a whirlwind three month romance.
The singer shared the happy news via her Instagram page on Sunday, posting a picture of her enormous diamond engagement ring and wedding band. Cheryl captioned the image, 'I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop the speculation I want to share my happy news... Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14.. We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together.”
Cheryl and Jean-Bernard, a French restauranteur, had only been dating for three months, after meeting in April during the Cannes Film Festival. The Daily Mail reports that the couple wed on a beach in the Caribbean island of Mustique in front of only four guests, including Cheryl’s mother Joan and her PA.
Cole is said to be smitten with the 33 year old, with The Sun reporting that she had no hesitation about marrying him so soon into their relationship. According to the newspaper, the pair reportedly moved into Cheryl’s Hertfordshire home together last month. Jean-Bernard was also on hand last week when his new wife filmed the final round of 'X-Factor' auditions in Edinburgh.
This is the second marriage for 31 year old Cheryl, who previously wed footballer Ashley Cole in 2006. The couple subsequently divorced four years later, after reports that hel had been unfaithful. Her last serious relationship was with dancer Tre Holloway, whom she dated for 14 moths before the romance ended late last year.
Jean-Bernard is said to have had something of a ‘playboy’ reputation, having spent his twenties living the high life in New York. However in recent years he seems to have focused his attention on building up his pop-up restaurant business.

But the 33 year old must be doing something right, as jeweller to the stars Vashi Dominguez told the Daily Mail he values Cheryl’s engagement ring and wedding band at around £300,000!
Congratulations to the happy couple!
