Cheryl Cole's Posh advice
Cheryl Cole has turned to Victoria Beckham for advice on coping with reports her husband has cheated on her.
The Girls Aloud singer has been left "devastated" by claims soccer star Ashley had unprotected sex with another woman.
But Victoria - whose marriage to former England captain David Beckham was threatened by rumours he'd had an affair with his PA Rebecca Loos in 2004 - is doing her best to support her friend in her time of need.
A source said: "Victoria was really upset when she heard what happened and wanted Cheryl to know she was there for her.
"The pair are good friends, and Posh went through exactly the same thing in 2004.
"She stuck by her man and got through it, and she just wanted to tell Cheryl that she could get through it too. While the claims against David were never proved, Ashley might have a tougher time clearing his name.
"Three girls have now claimed they've slept with Ashley, and Cheryl isn't going to let him get off lightly."
Cheryl, 24, initially stood by Ashley after 22-year-old hairdresser Aimee Walton revealed sordid details of her alleged one-night stand with the Chelsea player.
The pop beauty then fled the couple's marital home after two more women, Brooke Healy and Coralie Robinson, came forward with more sex allegations.
