Cheryl Cole Drops Her Last Name

Cheryl Cole Drops Her Last Name

Cheryl Cole has reportedly dropped her last name, and wants to be referred to by her first name – Cheryl.

According to The Sun, the British singer is not removing Cole legally, it’s just a career statement.

Cheryl was recently married to Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole, who she divorced in 2010 following several high-profile claims that he had cheated on her.

A source told the paper, “[Cheryl's] in a really good place at the moment and wants to take life by the balls. She can’t wait to start performing live again and her new stage name has given her comeback an extra bit of spice.”

    I guess Jared doesn’t know that The Sun is one of the most unreliable news sources out there?

    I don’t understand why any woman, let alone a celebrity, would want to keep the last name of an ex-husband who repeated cheated and disrespected her so publicly. Why not just go back to her maiden name ‘Tweedy’ … and make it LEGAL too!

    ask susan sarandon.
    demi moore.
    lucy lawless.
    and countless others who decided to keep their former husband’s name, including me.
    it’s not uncommon.

    I don’t know about this one cause it’s not like Rihanna or beyonce where the name is so unique that you think of only one or a few people. When I think Cheryl, it could be Cheryl from down the street, from the office, at school, etc. Cheryl is a pretty common name so maybe she should stick with the last name? “hey did you see that new video by Cheryl?” I’m sorry it just sounds weird cause it’s just such a common name…

    there are those that dont really have unique names and came out with last names but they’re so huge people dont use their last names anymore.

    @Guy: it’s only weird because ur not used to it (yet). if she came out as just cheryl in th ebegnning no one would be making such a fuss about it now. it’s just a name people. get over it.

    cheryl cole is a nice name. she should keep it.
    changing her name is such a desperate attempt for attention and hype for her non-existant career. she should focus more on substance and image stuff will follow when u produce good work.

    hannah Says:

    futuremrsdicaprio Says:

    @pamela: That still doesn’t really answer my question. The man cheated on her, so I’m with NICOLE about why she would keep that jerk’s name.

    Serves her right for rushing to marry a black man with money..Did she ever date black men before. NO. Why Ashley Cole. He had money.

    What abt just called Cher? With the increasing amount of work she has done to her face/ boobs, its not hard to imagine seeing her n the real Che end up looking like twins..

    because her real name is TWEEDY!!!!!!

    Annie Says:

    I’m sorry, but “Cheryl” is not an unusual enough name to be able to do that. In fact I think Cheryl Cole has a much better ring to it for showbiz. Bad move.
