The stress of being married to JB caused my weight loss; Cheryl's divorce papers claim revealed.
Byline: HALINA WATTS email@example.com
CHERYL Fernandez-Versini's short-lived marriage to Jean-Bernard has officially ended as she claimed his "unreasonable behaviour" caused her "stress and weight loss".
In a 14-second hearing, the 33-year-old singer was granted a decree nisi at the Central Family Court in London.
The district judge's certificate stated: "The marriage having irretrievably broken down, the facts proved being the respondent's unreasonable behaviour."
Underneath a section "if you consider the respondent's behaviour has affected your health, state the effect it has had," there is an answer by Cheryl's lawyers which reads: "It caused stress and weight loss."
Judge Heather MacGregor held that Jean-Bernard had "behaved in such a way" that Cheryl "cannot reasonably be expected to live with (him)".
The marriage will be resolved within six weeks when a decree absolute is made.
But sources close to Jean-Bernard, 36, have revealed he was "shocked" by yesterday's ruling.
One said: "It's unfair that Cheryl's weight loss has been blamed solely on JB.
"It was a complete shock to him when the news broke yesterday."
Fans noted that Cheryl had lost a significant amount of weight when she returned for a new series of The X Factor last July.
At the time, her family told how the language barrier between her and her French husband had become a problem.
Her cousin Tony Tweedy said: "They may as well have a threesome with the interpreter."
Before tying the knot, Jean Bernard is believed to have signed a prenuptial agreement meaning Cheryl will keep all of her estimated PS20million fortune.
She is now in a relationship with former One Direction star Liam Payne, 23.
A source close to Cheryl said: "She is so happy to be moving on with her life and putting this chapter behind her."
The former Girls Aloud singer had been married to Jean-Bernard for just 18 months but living apart for five by the turn of 2016.
The divorce comes 10 months after their separation was announced in January.
They wed on the island of Mustique in the Caribbean in July 2014 after a three-month courtship.
Earlier this year, Jean-Bernard said: "It's been a tough year. I'm trying to move on. I'll never think badly of her. She is a great girl."
