Cheryl and her French businessman husband Jean-Bernard have been married for less than two years, but their relationship has been under intense scrutiny from the beginning.
The pair have battled their fair share of separation rumours in the 16 months since they wed. Now, it looks like Jean-Bernard has had enough.
He addressed speculation that the two are headed for a split because of the huge amounts of time they spend apart.
The 32-year old X Factor judge has been open about her hectic schedule they is keeping her on the road and apart from her husband.
Yesterday he took to social media and blasted those who make claims that they are heading for a separation. According to The Mirror, he has been away on business in France and Dubai and explained his absence on Instagram.
“Yes I am working like everybody else to put food on the table but my priority is my wife as this is the last person that is family.”
He also wrote that he was “always going to be there” for is wife and that “even when my dad died I put my life on the line for my wife.”
“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.”
Speculation about their duo’s marriage was sent into overdrive when it was noted that Cheryl had skipped her husband’s birthday celebrations in August.
He instead opted to spend his night partying until the wee hours with his friends.
This is not the first time that Cheryl's hubby has felt the need to defend their marriage. While he says he doesn't often comment on stories about them in the media, he did leave an interesting comment on a video posted by Nick Grimshaw.
While it was quickly deleted, that didn't stop social media users from branding him posessive and rude. "Your comments on here earlier were pathetic. Did you delete them because you realised how stupid and unwanted they were too," commented one user.
