The singer wants to remove all affiliations to her ex-husband Jean-Bernard
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has had a hard time on the surname front for a number of years with the singer on her third reinvention - and now she’s keen to get rid of that one. The former X Factor judge is said to be "desperate" to get divorced so she can change her name "as soon as possible".
Cheryl is keen to move on from her old name in her new relationship
However, instead of reverting back to her most successful moniker - Cole - or her maiden name - Tweedy - sources claim that the 32-year-old will simply go back to being known as Cheryl.
The DailyMailOnline reported that an insider confirmed: "Cheryl has been using her first name professionally for some time."
The insider continued: "Cheryl is the one that wanted a divorce and she is desperate for it to go ahead.
"There are reasons for that which will come out in due course. She wants a divorce as quickly as possible so she can change her name and move on."
Cheryl has been rocked by cheating allegations over the weekend after her ex-husband posted on Instagram, "the truth always comes out".
Cheryl hit back, claiming the rumours are "s*it" and taking pains to point out she didn’t begin her new relationship with One Directioner Liam Payne until after her marriage had broken up.
