Cheryl and Jean Bernard in festive spat


Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini appeared to be taking a dig at his former wife Cheryl when he revealed what is Christmas wish is: To have a loyal girlfriend.

While Jean-Bernard has congratulated the former X Factor judge on her pregnancy with her new boyfriend, Liam Payne from One Direction, who, at 23 is ten years her junior. But now the French businessman appeared to be criticising his ex wife when he posted a snap on Instagram, saying that it would be more realistic to get a dragon for Christmas than a loyal partner. However, he does then go on to say that he was only joking, before wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.

However, Instagram users immediately pointed out that they thought he was talking about Cheryl. The French restaurateur and Cheryl, who found fame with Girls Aloud, were married for only 18 months after a whirlwind romance.


And, the pair have clearly not kept in touch, as Jean Bernard said that he only found out that Cheryl was expecting in the same way as everyone else, through the media. However, he said that he was pleased for his former wife, adding that having children made the world a better place.

Now that his divorce from Cheryl has been formalised, Jean Bernard said that he certainly had not ruled out looking for love or remarrying. However, he felt that if it was meant to be, then fate would make it happen.

Jean Bernard and Cheryl got married on Macaroni Beach in Mustique after having only been dating for three months. They first met at the Cannes Film Festival in the South of France. While Jean Bernard is yet to find love again, Cheryl is loved up with Liam, with whom she is expecting her first child. The couple are preparing to welcome their new baby into the world in the New Year.
