While Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is yet to address reports her marriage to husband Jean-Bernard is on the rocks, it seems she’s happy to fuel speculation about what’s going on.
The ‘X Factor’ judge has posted a very cryptic message on her Instagram account, as rumours about the pair’s relationship continue to swirl.

Chezza shared a motivational post with her two million followers, that read: "Sending love to all the women out there trying to love themselves in a world that constantly tells them not to."
This isn’t the only suspicious activity that has occurred on Cheryl’s Instagram in recent weeks though, as last month, she deleted a topless picture of Jean-Bernard.
The couple, who secretly married in July 2014, after just a few months of dating, have not been seen together in public since October, when they attended Ant and Dec’s 40th birthday party.
While JB was a regular presence at the ‘X Factor’ studios to support Cheryl during the 2014 series, he was notably absent from last year’s live shows.
Meanwhile, the restaurateur shared a new topless snap on his Instagram, as he posed with a tattoo artist who had inked his arm.

He previously rubbished reports of a rift between him and Cheryl, saying on his account: "This is just nonsense. What matters is family and my wife is my only one left so if she need me I am always going to be there. My wife Cheryl is my priority nothing else.”
However, it isn’t known if they even spent Christmas together, after her partied in Miami during the week of the ‘X Factor’ final.
A source told The Sun: “It's so odd that JB would leave Cheryl at a time when she is so exhausted after the most stressful week of her year. She's also had to face all the talk about her marriage alone and it can't have been easy.
“It's very telling that no one will say if they are physically together or not after such a long time apart,” they added.
He later posted his own cryptic message, writing: “Mean people don’t bother me a bit. Mean people who disguise themselves as nice people bother me a whole lot.”
