British 'The X Factor' judge Cheryl Cole divorces husband Ashley Cole
UPI News Service, 09/06/2010
Singer, actress and dancer Cheryl Cole, who came to prominence with the London-based group Girls Aloud, says she was granted a divorce in 60 seconds.
Cole married soccer-player Ashley Cole in 2006. His cheating was the cause of their divorce, Britain's Daily Mail said Monday.
"There's no children -- I'm very thankful for that," Cole said.
She said her divorce in London last week was a "quickie" ceremony lasting 60 seconds.
In an interview in the October issue of Vogue magazine, Cole said she has plenty to be happy about.
"I've just got to be grateful that I've got so many good things going on. I have. And there's no children you know? Some people's lives fall apart," she said in the Vogue interview. "Of course, it's heartbreaking, but it's not anything remotely like it could have been, and I'm very, very grateful for that."
Cole is a judge on the British reality show "The X Factor," and there is talk she will join former American Idol judge and founder Simon Cowell as a judge on a U.S. version next year, the report said.
"I have to perform. I have to deliver. I'd never want to give up what I do -- I love my music, I love being a judge on The X Factor," she said.
