Cheryl Cole's Divorce Granted

Cheryl Cole's marriage has been dissolved in less than 60 seconds.

The 'Fight for This Love' singer - who split from soccer player Ashley Cole in February amid claims he had been unfaithful with a string of women - wasn't present at London's High Court to see the decree nisi granted by district judge Chris Simmonds this morning (01.09.10).

In a brief hearing, the judge accepted the couple's four-year marriage had broken down because of the England and Chelsea defender's "unreasonable behaviour".

The brunette beauty has also claimed in legal documents the sportsman is still acting unreasonably.

The couple - whose divorce petition was listed under their initials "CAC v AC" in the hope of avoiding publicity - will now face a six-week "cooling off period" before their marriage is ended for good when a decree absolute is granted.

Cheryl, 27, is currently in Los Angeles with rumoured boyfriend Derek Hough as she continues to recover from the bout of malaria she contracted in July.

Meanwhile, 29-year-old Ashley is training with the national side for tonight's (03.09.10) European qualifying match against Bulgaria.

The couple are reportedly planning to split their assets - including their Surrey mansion - equally, while the Girls Aloud star will take custody of their two dogs, Buster and Coco.
