Cheryl reveals she got tested for STDs after ex affairDecember 21, 2018
Cheryl threw up, cried and then got checked out at a sexual health clinic after Ashley Cole’s affairs emerged.
The singer could hardly believe it when four women came forward claiming to have bedded her husband, and she flew back from the US to confront him in 2010.
He’d already fled their house though, leaving Cheryl to read through the reports alone.
Despite initially thinking the women were lying, the details they gave were ones she said, "nobody could have known, and nobody should have known except me."
"One girl said they drank rosé wine in a hotel bedroom together, and that Ashley smoked. He does like rosé wine, and at first I told myself she could have seen him drinking it in the bar rather than sharing a bottle with him in the bedroom," Cheryl wrote in her 2012 autobiography, My Story by Cheryl Cole.
"The smoking, though? He’s a footballer and this wasn’t something he did in public. Hardly
anybody knew he smoked."
Details about the actual sex stung the most, with Cheryl revealing claims about ‘hand holding in bed’ tore her heart out.
"That hit a nerve, a big one," she continued. "That was my husband that someone else was talking about. The description ‘like relationship sex’ was so painful to read I blocked it out totally; I couldn’t deal with it.
"I pushed the papers away, feeling sick at the smell of the newsprint, and then I actually vomited."
Bereft, she spent days fluctuating between ignoring his phone calls and begging him to tell the truth and put her out of the ‘torture’.
"When I put the phone down I sobbed hysterically, like a little child does, crying so hard I was gasping for air and wanting to be sick," she wrote.
When Ashley came around to collect some things, she was the one who comforted him, claiming he "clung to me like a little boy."
But despite spending two months crying – sometimes hysterically, sometime silently into her pillow all night – she was certain that divorce was the only option. After all, Ashley had already been busted cheating two years earlier .
Taking matters in hand, she decided to get checked for STDs.
"I had to face the fact that Ashley’s infidelity had been putting me at risk for a long time, and I had to put my mind at rest," she wrote.
"I was given the all clear, but my emotional health was still in so much danger.
"I just wanted to get out of the marriage and out of the house."
Heartbreakingly, as her moving date grew closer, her devastation grew. Whilst filming The X Factor live shows she admitted she was ‘cracking up’.
"Every room held a memory, and I didn’t realise it, but I think I was actually going through a nervous breakdown," she said.
