CHERYL Cole has filed for divorce from husband Ashley Cole.

The Fight for This Love singer's legal team lodged her request for a "quickie" divorce at London's high court on Tuesday, where she cited his "unreasonable behaviour" as the reason behind the end of their three-and-a-half-year marriage.

This comes just months after it was alleged the soccer player had cheated on her with numerous women.

In a bid to end their union as quickly as possible, the 26-year-old beauty has told the England star she doesn't want his money and he can keep their R66,7million home if she can have a "clean break" from him.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "She wants a completely clean break with no malice or wrangling over property or money. Cheryl will not take one penny of Ashley's money.

"Crucially, people expected her to ask for their mansion as part of the divorce terms. But the house means nothing to her. Cheryl is giving the house to him."

Cheryl's publicity firm, Supersonic PR, said in a statement: "We can confirm the divorce. We have no further comment."

In February the Girls Aloud star announced she was separating from her husband after several women claimed they had received explicit picture and text messages from Ashley's secret mobile phone and had sex with him.

Meanwhile, is said to be in love with Cheryl.

The Black Eyed Peas star's mother, Debra Adams, has said the pair have grown increasingly close since touring together and claims the producer is "very fond" of the British singer.

She said: "Will is very fond of Cheryl." - Bang
