Cheryl Cole files for divorce

Cheryl Cole has filed for divorce from her estranged husband Ashley, her PR company has announced.

She cited "unreasonable behaviour" in her grounds for the divorce.

The singer and Chelsea defender split last February amid media allegations that the footballer had cheated on Cheryl.

During their near four-year marriage Ashley had been accused by the press of sending raunchy photograph texts to other women, while another claimed to have slept with him.

A divorce action was brought to the High Court in London yesterday (May 25th) and it is expected that it will be a 'quickie divorce', which could be finalised by the time Ashley heads to South Africa on June 11th for the Fifa World Cup.

It is reported that Cheryl will let the footballer keep their £6 million mansion.

According to the Sunday Times Rich List, the X-Factor judge is worth more than her husband, with a personal fortune of £10 million.
