It's over: Cheryl Cole to divorce Ashley over his 'unreasonable behaviour'

Cheryl Cole has launched divorce proceedings against Ashley Cole.

The singer is not asking for any money from the Chelsea player, who has allegedly cheated on her with a string of women, and instead plans to make a clean break.

The pair have a joint fortune estimated at £22m and share a nine-bedroom home in Surrey worth £6m.

In her divorce papers, Cheryl has cited 29-year-old Cole's 'unreasonable behaviour' as the reason for the split.

Cheryl has launched divorce proceedings against husband Ashley, seen together here fronting a much-maligned ad campaign for the National Lottery's new Dream Number in July 2006 ahead of their wedding

The divorce action was formally lodged at 2pm yesterday at London's High Court.

Her management Supersonic PR confirmed the news on Twitter this morning, writing the message: 'We can confirm the divorce. We have no further comment.'

X Factor judge Cheryl is said to want to get things done and dusted before England's first World Cup match on June 12, although legal sources say such a quick turnaround would be highly optimistic.

The Daily Mail revealed on April 17 that she would be seeking a dignified divorce.

A source said: 'When it happens, it will be quick, quiet and painless. Cheryl's style. All she wants is her home and her dogs.'

A source is quoted in The Sun today, saying: 'Cheryl made a swift decision to put England's World Cup dreams ahead of herself.

Success: Cheryl has forged a successful solo career and has relinquished any claim to Ashley's money

'The divorce should be finalised before England's first touch of the ball in South Africa on June 12.'

Girls Aloud star Cheryl, who turns 27 next month, has forged her solo career using her married name.

Sources close to the star recently suggested she may now consider just being known as Cheryl, or revert to her maiden name Tweedy.

Cheryl and Ashley did not sign a pre-nuptial agreement, meaning there could have been a messy battle carving up their estimated £22million fortune.

But according to sources, Cheryl just wants a clean break and is not interested in financial wrangling.

Cheryl officially announced she was separating from Ashley in February via her management on the Supersonic PR Twitter page.


Official: Cheryl's management confirmed the news on Twitter today

It came following a string of lurid allegations that he had cheated on her with a string of women.

He was branded a serial cheat after four women come forward making claims. He was linked to  Alexandra Taylor - who alleged she had sex with Cole on the night he 'went public' with Cheryl in 2004 - U.S. political aide Ann Corbitt, glamour model Sonia Wild and Liverpool club secretary Vicki Gough.

This came on top of an alleged tryst he had with 22-year-old hairdresser Aimee Walton in December 2007.

She then sold her story in the January, but Cheryl forgave Ashley and took him back.

He bought her a £160,000 square cut diamond wedding ring in the wake of the affair claims.

In November last year she even posted a picture of herself wearing the ring on Twitter following reports their marriage was in trouble.

She left the accompanying message: '3 words. Diamonds Are Forever.'

But just three months later, Cheryl was left crushed when yet more lurid allegations were made public.

Their divorce next month will come just a month before they would have celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary after marrying in July 2006.

In recent months Cheryl has been the subject of romance rumours with Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am.

She maintains they are just good friends, however he has publicly backed Cheryl in the wake of her split from Ashley and described her as 'the most beautiful woman in the world'.

He worked with her on producing her solo album 3 Words and last month the pair were seen cosying up together at a club during the Cannes Film Festival.
