British pop star Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s divorce from her estranged husband is reportedly being delayed by a cash row.

The 32-year-old pop star, who is currently dating One Direction singer Liam Payne, is trying to conclude a quick divorce from the French businessman, but so far, they have been unable to reach a financial settlement, reported Daily Mirror.

"Cheryl filed for divorce before Christmas and hoped things would be done and dusted by now as she is keen to move on with her life and new relationship with Liam," a source said.

"This should have been dealt with absolutely ages ago but things have turned very sour. Jean-Bernard has hired top lawyers to make sure he doesn’t walk away empty-handed so obviously that has led to things getting very messy," the insider added.
