A friend of Cheryl Cole tells The Sun that the Girls Aloud singer announced a separation on Tuesday, and not a divorce, only to soften the blow to her soccer star husband Ashley. “Cheryl still has extremely strong feelings for Ashley despite being let down, angry and hurt. So she decided to just issue a short statement that they have split up,” a friend explained. “It is permanent – make no mistake about that. But to soften the blow to Ashley she has allowed the slight possibility that one day – perhaps in six months time – she will hear what he has to say. However, it is more than likely she will press on and seek a divorce.”
