Cheryl and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini

Cheryl and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini are set to divorce this week.

The former couple - who announced their split in January after 18 months of marriage - will have their decree nisi read at the High Court in London on Thursday (20.10.16), the Sunday Mirror reports.

A source told the newspaper: "This has been the result of months of negotiations

"After months of debate Cheryl is really relieved the terms have been finally agreed by both sides."

However, no financial settlement has been reached between Cheryl - who is now dating One Direction star Liam Payne - and Jean-Bernard.

It was previously claimed that the divorce had stalled because JB was refusing to sign a "confidentially agreement".

The 35-year-old restaurateur - who married the 'Fight For This Love' hitmaker in 2014 after three months of dating - was said to be unhappy that the star was trying make him sign a contract, which will "never" allow him to defend himself against any false claims made about him.

A close friend of his said: "JB 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.

"Then there is getting divorced and being bound by a confidentially agreement - which means he can never defend himself or clarify any false reports."

And Jean - who lost his father last year - allegedly felt he received no support from his 33-year-old partner during this tragic time, which made him see that the former 'The X Factor' judge "wasn't the girl" he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.

The source explained: "He'd [Jean-Bernard] never say anything bad about Cheryl but all with everything alone, she wasn't the girl for him."
