"It's not happening anymore": Cheryl Cole is done with dating after split from Liam Payne
Cole discusses life after her split, the pressures of motherhood and how she has sworn off dating in the future.
Cheryl Cole has said she is permanently done with dating after her split with Liam Payne in July. The 35-year-old pop star made this startling revelation during a conversation with Jessie Ware for her podcast 'Table Manners.'
According to Daily Mail, Cole said that her only priority right now was her one-year-old son Bear, who is the only man she needs in her life, "I know what I want in life, but in the romantic area, I am not as evolved. That area has stopped. It's not happening anymore. It's the end. It's the end."
Cheryl will soon be releasing her new single titled 'Love Made Me Do It', after a four-year break from the music industry. Jessie's mother Helena, who was also on the podcast, commended Cheryl for releasing new music after having such a public break-up, and the fact that Liam is constantly seen with other women. To this Cole replied with, “I couldn’t give a f***,” explicitly stating that she does not care what Liam does anymore.
The singer also revealed the lyrics from the song, with one line being, “I’ve fallen hard like a million times, on number seven of my nine lives. The ink on the skin is all the places I have been." She was then asked if she did indeed wear her heart on her sleeves, to which she said: “I just love people. I am a dreamer, I believe things that are not really happening. I am very romantic,” reports The Sun.
The single will be out on November 9. Dishing out more details on the single, Cole says her new songs are not about Liam or any other man because she wrote it much before her split with him.
During the podcast, Cheryl discussed her life as a mother and how important her son Bear is to her, she said that though she finds it hard to juggle so many things together, Bear will always be her priority and come before her career. She added, "I have to work on the juggling. It's a lot of adjusting. I refused to get help with him until he was 16 months old. It didn't feel natural for me."
Apart from her dating life and motherhood, the pop star shared other details about her interests, talking extensively about how much she likes to cook and that her favourite dish to make is roast. "I always do two meats because I like the flavoursome gravy of the beef and the meat of the chicken. "
The former Girls Aloud singer's private life has always been in the tabloids. She was previously wed to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini for 18 months before splitting up. She was also married to famous footballer Ashely Cole for 4 years before breaking up over his alleged infidelity.
