According to a source, Cheryl is being prevented from taking her relationship with new love interest Liam Payne to the next level due to Jean-Bernard’s refusal to sign documentations banning him from talking about their short-lived marriage, reports dailymail.co.uk.
“Jean-Bernard has moved on, it’s been a really tough year for him with his father dying, leaving him the only remaining member of his family,” the source said.
“Then there is getting divorced and being bound by a confidentially agreement – which means he can never defend himself or clarify any false reports.”
“He’d never say anything bad about Cheryl, but he realised a long time ago, when he had to deal with everything alone, she wasn’t the girl for him,” the source added.
Cheryl married Jean-Bernard in 2014 after a three-month courtship. She announced their separation earlier this year.
