Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's estranged husband has lashed out after she denied cheating on him with Liam Payne.
Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini has broken his silence on his marriage to insist the "truth" had come out, despite the 'Only Human' singer slamming reports she had begun dating the One Direction hunk while still with the restaurateur.
Below a picture of a red carpet going through archways of roses he wrote on Instagram: "Since months, papers, 'sources', lawyers, PR, management team an others have been trying to intimating me.
"I have heard so many lies about me, my family, (that [I] can't answer anymore), and my situation... I [have] never seen anybody standing up and defend me by telling the truth. I guess because it wasn't in their interest...
"And now suddenly when the truth comes out from NOWHERE because the truth always comes out, certain people that love to say that they don't comment on their private life can't help themselves but to justify themselves which for me seems even more strange...(sic)"
Jean-Bernard spoke out after it was reported he was told by 'X Factor' insiders that Cheryl had begun dating the 'Steal My Girl' hitmaker in October, two months before she officially ended her marriage.
But the former Girls Aloud star hit out the claims and slammed:
"If anybody believes the s**t they're reading today you really don't know me at all."
Liam also appeared to back his girlfriend as he retweeted a message from a fan which read: "Cheryl's the most selfless and kindhearted human you will ever come across in your life. I just don't understand why people are so cruel."
And it has been claimed the former couple - who married in July 2014 - had actually split some months before Cheryl got together with Liam.
A spokesperson for the star told Mirror Online: "Jean Bernard's information about when Cheryl started her relationship with Liam is false."
And a source added: "Cheryl and JB actually separated in August and he moved out of her home."
