Singer Nadine Coyle is fuming over reports she's accused Girls Aloud bandmate CHERYL COLE of "milking" her split from her soccer star husband ashley.
Cheryl Cole parted from her husband of three years last month (Feb10) after their marriage was rocked by allegations he had cheated on her with five women.
Coyle voiced her support for her pal at the time, insisting she would snub the sports star if she ever saw him again.
However, reports in the British tabloids earlier this month (Mar10) suggested Coyle was angry at Cole for playing out the split in public, and was using the publicity to boost her solo career.
But Coyle is livid at the suggestions she isn't fully backing her bandmate.
She tells Britain's News of the World, "I've always been close to Cheryl. We're completely different people. We respect each other for what we've done and the different places we've come from in life.
"It's offensive to say I think she's milking a really difficult time in her life for success. I would like to know who's saying we've fallen out because I know it's NOT coming from me."
