Nicole Scherzinger has been spotted getting close to Cheryl’s ex Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini.
Nicole and Cheryl have been involved in a famous feud since the former Girls Aloud star was shockingly axed from the X Factor USA panel in favour of Nicole back in 2011.
Years later, it looks like there’s no love lost between the pair – and Nicole’s latest move is sure to rile her Geordie rival.
In photos posted over the weekend on Jean Bernard’s Instagram, the French restaurateur looked very cosy with Nicole at a club in London.
JB and Cheryl married in a secret ceremony after just three months of dating back in 2014.
However, the couple parted ways in a nasty split eighteen months later – and Cheryl has since welcomed her first child, Bear, with her new boyfriend Liam Payne.
Although the photos have raised plenty of eyebrows, given Cheryl’s rocky relationship with both Nicole and Jean Bernard, a source has insisted that the pair are just friends.
“Nicole was out with a group of friends after filming X Factor. JB is a friend of a friend and was introduced to Nicole. That was the extent of their conversation. The photo was taken as Nicole was leaving, it was concluded,” a source told Metro.
