We would like to make an official plea for Cheryl to come out of hiding; not just for us, but for the good of national gossip. As we type, there are rumours swirling that Cheryl and Ashley have split up, but also that they are on the verge of getting married, that Cheryl has quit showbiz for good, but also that the star wants to focus on her career. Contradictory and confusing? That's not the half of it.
A friend of Cheryl's told The Daily Mail, 'Once again Ashley appears to have outdone himself. Just as Cheryl’s getting back on track and working really hard on her music he does this. She is humiliated. Ashley had organised a family gathering, a barbecue, for when he got back from pre-season training in the Far East. This has been scrapped. Cheryl told him on the phone yesterday that clearly Ashley isn’t yet ready to be a committed family man.'
The chatty source continued, 'At one point they had a blazing row and Cheryl basically said she was through with him and told Ashley to delete her number and leave her alone. Cheryl is determined to keep her head down now and focus on work. What will be with Ashley will be. But it can wait. Although, in his defence, they weren’t officially back together when he had this fling so technically they were free agents then.'
Our head hurts, we just can't keep up...
