Cheryl Cole's broken marriage is set to cost millions. Talk has already turned to the rumoured £22m fortune she shares with husband Ashley Cole. And that means this could be one very costly divorce battle.
Ashley and Cheryl didn't sign a pre-nuptial agreement when they married in 2006. The X Factor judge and her footballer husband earn a reported £6million a year though their work and sponsorship deals, and they share a £3.5million mansion in Surrey.
It's been said that Cheryl could walk away from the marriage with at least half of their assets. The singer announced her separation from her husband of three-and-a-half years just hours after arriving back in the UK yesterday. Cheryl's friends have been rallying around her, with fellow X Factor judge Louis Walsh saying: "I think the world of Cheryl, she's a great girl. "She deserves somebody amazing. She will be absolutely fine - she's a fantastic, strong star."
Meanwhile, celebrity publicist Max Clifford said the split would boost Cheryl's profile, adding: "It's obviously sad, but she didn't really have any choice. "It must have been a hard decision because clearly she loves him and, in spite of everything, that will have been very, very painful. "You naturally want to believe the best of people that you love."
