Cheryl cole gives away jewellery in divorce clear-out

London, May 31 (IANS) Cheryl Cole is getting rid of the dead wood in her life including jewellery from her estranged husband Ashley.

The singer has given away thousands of pounds worth of gifts he bought her during their marriage. The unwanted necklaces, earrings and bracelets were dished out to her friends and mum Joan during a recent girls’ night in, reports.

A diamond heart pendant is said to be among the items given away by Cheryl, who is being comforted by dancer Derek Hough.

‘Cheryl has had a massive clear-out, like anyone would after a break up. A load of jewellery, especially earrings and necklaces, some of which were bought for her by Ashley, were thrown into the tidy-up,’ said a source.

‘She didn’t even like a lot of the pieces as they’re not her style, far too bling. Even the bits she does like, she doesn’t want to wear them, although she has held on to her wedding ring. She has closed that chapter of her life so she wants to get rid of a lot of the things they have accumulated.’

The singer filed for divorce proceedings against the 29-year-old Chelsea and England defender last week.
