Cheryl and Ashley Coles one year split anniversary is coming up, as friends have told national Cosmopolitan magazine that they are worried for her health.
The star is said to be struggling to deal with such a hectic schedule in the public eye, and the personal torment inevitable during a divorce.
With Cheryl’s first Valentine’s Day as a single women looming, band mate and friend Kimberley Walsh spoke about her fears for the star, following her split from Chelsea footballer, Ashley.
“I do feel a bit protective,” she said. “I don’t like the fact she’s so trapped sometimes, trying to go out and about. There’s not a great deal you can do about it but it frustrates me.
“Everyone deserves a little bit of freedom and she doesn’t have that.”
Cheryl has had a difficult year, with Malaria almost taking her life, and has spent the last week in Venice with her brother. Whilst an on off relationship with dancer Derek Hough has provided the star with a distraction, it hasn’t been enough and she recently almost pulled out of a £250,000 Audi gig due to exhaustion.
