Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is reportedly set to divorce her second husband.

A source told The Sun newspaper that the 32-year-old singer - who was previously married to soccer star Ashley Cole - to divorce French businessman Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini because of his 'unreasonable behaviour'.

The insider said: "Cheryl is divorcing JB on the grounds of his unreasonable behaviour. She has had enough of his jealousy.

"He didn't like it when she had to spend time with other men and even became jealous when she was hanging out with her dogs.

"Cheryl seems to want this over and done with as quickly as possible but it could be held up if she does have any talks with JB over a financial settlement."

Cheryl surprised friend and fans with her secret wedding to Jean-Bernard in July 2014 after just a few months of dating and pals now believe she rushed into the marriage.

The source said: "In hindsight, it's obvious Cheryl didn't really know JB well enough to commit to him for the rest of her life.

"But she was so madly in love and caught up in the moment - after everything that happened with Ashley she wanted to believe that love really does conquer all."

Cheryl and JB have not been spotted together in public since they attended a presenting duo Ant and Dec's joint birthday party in October.

And Cheryl's cousin Tony Tweedy previously claimed the singer and her husband have been struggling with the language barrier as she speaks little French and he knows only a small amount of English.

He said: "The family think the marriage is over. When I asked if Cheryl was happy with him, they replied, 'Put it this way, I'll give it six months.' That was three months ago, and look what's happening.

"Cheryl can't speak French. I'm told he speaks little English. What sort of relationship is it if she cannot speak French and he can't speak English? They may as well have a threesome with the interpreter."

Secretly split

Cheryl has secretly split from her husband five months ago.

A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "They actually split up in August. They are still very good friends but are now getting a divorce.

"In the end Cheryl realised she had married too soon and had been swept away by a bit of a whirlwind romance.

"Over time it became clear to each of them that they were very different people and from very different worlds.

"They are now focusing on making sure they stay friends. The divorce is amicable and they have both said they will always be there for each other."

Although Cheryl and JB were last spotted in public together at Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly's joint birthday bash in October, they attended as friends, having already been separately for a few months.

Cheryl and Jean-Bernard married in a secret ceremony in Mustique in July 2014 after just a few months of dating.
