Cheryl Cole's husband, soccer player Ashley Cole, reportedly begged for her to give their marriage another chance and offered to go to sex rehab to tackle his problems
Cheryl Cole's husband offered to go to sex rehab to save their marriage.
The 'Fight for This Love' singer spent her first night back in the UK alone yesterday (23.02.10) after ending her marriage to soccer player Ashley Cole by text from Los Angeles, when it was revealed he had cheated on her with five other women.
Although Ashley, 29, bombarded Cheryl, 26, with a string of increasingly distressed voicemails, she ignored them as she discussed the end of the relationship with hunky dancer Derek Hough in the US.
A source close to Ashley told The Sun newspaper: "Ashley was calling every ten minutes or so and leaving messages.
"Ashley suggested they could go for counselling and that he could try therapy. He admitted for the first time that he has a problem.
"She was with Derek at the time talking about her future. One minute she was really upbeat, feeling strong and positive about a new life on her own. Then she would come crashing down and feel sorry for Ashley. But in the end she decided that she has to stay strong and stick to her plan."
After landing back in the UK, Cheryl returned to the couple's marital home in Surrey, hours after Ashley left to receive specialist treatment in France on his broken ankle.
Once at home, Cheryl phoned her mother, Joan, 49, for a heart-to-heart chat, but refused all visitors.
The Girls Aloud beauty left the house just once, when the fire brigade arrived after she accidently set a fire alarm off.
Cheryl is said to have initially made the decision to dump Ashley two weeks ago - when allegations surfaced that Ashley had sent naked pictures of himself to a model - but waited until after last week's BRIT Awards when she could fly to Los Angeles and have some time to think over her future.
Her final words to her husband were to tell him of her "disgust" at his behaviour.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "She thought his excuses were pathetic. She didn't believe a word he was saying.
"Her parting words to him were, 'You have lied, lied and lied. You disgust me. I'll see you around."
