The former couple are yet to reach a settlement to end their 18 month marriage.
Cheryl’ s estranged husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini has reportedly hired one one of the UK’s top divorce lawyers in a bid to reach a better financial settlement. Jean-Bernard is said to have dumped his former legal team after failing to reach an agreement with his estranged wife.
Cheryl’s ex Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini is thought to have hired a top legal team.
The Mirror reports that Cheryl may have to pay out as much as £5million, despite their marriage lasting little over a year. A source told the newspaper: “She just wants this settled and to move on with life.
“The legal dispute should have been long finished by now but he clearly wasn’t satisfied with what was on the table and has decided to try a new team.” Finances aside, there’s also said to be a dispute over a non-disclosure agreement, which will keep the details of their marriage and divorce private.
“Initially everything was amicable and pleasant, it’s a real shame,” a source added. “They had a lovely time together and for a long time a good marriage, which sadly didn’t work out because over time they found they were quite different people."
“She had no idea how different they would turn out to be.” Jean-Bernard’s team are said to have previously won multi-million pound settlements in high-profile divorces. Cheryl and Jean-Bernard married in July 2014 after a whirlwind three-month romance. They are thought to have separated last August, before the news became public in December.
