Speaking to The Mirror, Cheryl's rep confirmed in a statement: "Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini have today obtained Decree Nisi in their divorce proceedings. No further comment will be made and they ask for their privacy to be respected."

No other details surrounding their divorce have been revealed.

Cheryl and Jean-Bernard's divorce comes over two years after the pair wed in secret in July 2014. They had tied the knot in a private ceremony on the Caribbean island of Mustique, just three months of dating.

The 'Fight For This Love' singer shocked fans by revealing she had married. Cheryl took to Instagram with a photo of her wedding band and engagement ring, and addressing fans, she added the caption: "I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop the speculation I want to share my happy news. Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14. We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together."

Rumours she and Jean-Bernard were divorcing first surfaced at the start of this year, back in January. It came just two months after Jean-Bernard had appeared to hit back at reports his marriage with Cheryl was in trouble.

He addressed the claims on Instagram and responded: "This is just nonsense. What matters is family and my wife is my only one left so if she need me I am always going to be there. My wife Cheryl is my priority nothing else."

Since then, he and Cheryl have remained notoriously private about their split.

Cheryl is now dating One Direction star Liam Payne. The pair first went public with their romance on social media in March, before making their red carpet debut as a couple in Paris at the Global Gift Gala in May.

Since then, it has been widely speculated that Cheryl is now pregnant with Liam's baby, but again, she has not addressed the rumours and is instead keeping us all guessing.
