Cheryl Cole and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini marry in private wedding ceremony nearly eclipsed by World Cup final
The X Factor judge marries Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini
Monday 14 July 2014
Cheryl Cole has secretly married her French boyfriend Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini after just three months.
In a well-timed announcement that meant the singer’s wedding was nearly completely eclipsed by the World Cup final, the X Factor presenter shared a picture of her engagement and wedding ring on her Instagram page yesterday.
The two were married in a low-key ceremony on the island of Mustique on 7 July, reportedly attended by only four guests. It would seem Simon Cowell’s invite must have got lost in the post.
“I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop the speculation I want to share my happy news... Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14. We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together.”
Fernandez-Versini, 33, is an entrepreneur and runs a pop-up restaurant business and reportedly divides him time between St Barts and the French Riviera.
In 2002, he was included in a New York Times feature, headlined A New Eurofestation – about a group of “hard partying jet-setters” known to New Yorkers as ‘Eurotrash’. He studied business administration at New York University and, according to the New York Times, took a gap year “just to party”. His parents footed the bill, naturally.
As a 21-year-old he had a penchant for fashion and every autumn would travel to Monaco to buy his new wardrobe, before heading to New York and Paris Fashion Week. In other observations, he has a touch of the Richard Bacon about him.
Cole divorced first husband Ashley Cole in 2010, after a four-year marriage.
