What is Nadine Coyle’s feud with Cheryl?
To many, Girls Aloud looked like the best of friends. But after their split in 2013, things reportedly turned frosty between the pals.
Nadine has let slip on various occasions that there was a rift between the girls.
During an appearance on Celebrity Juice in 2018, Nadine admitted that her and Cheryl were “never friends”.
When the band split in 2013, Nadine claimed that she wasn’t consulted, and slammed their decision to quit.
Cheryl retaliated in an interview with Attitude Magazine, saying that Nadine was “full of s**t”.
What has Nadine done since Girls Aloud?
Once Girls Aloud split up, rumours flew around that Nadine had decided to end things with the group due to a burgeoning solo career.
She’s strenuously denied ever wanting to split up and says it was her bandmates’ decision to leave the group behind, causing some serious beef with Cheryl Tweedy.
Nonetheless, as she had fronted some of the girlband’s biggest hits Nadine’s career looked really promising – but her first album was a complete flop.
Her debut album Insatiable, which she released in 2010, peaked at No. 47 in the UK charts before bombing out of the Top 100.

Nadine is not married but was in a long-term relationship with professional american footballer Jason Bell.
The pair have a daughter together, Anaiya, who was born in 2014.

A source told HOAR “Although Nadine and Jason were never married, they lived as a close family unit and remain good friends as they co-parent their young daughter.
“They still care for one another, but are no longer in a romantic relationship.”
Before Jason, Nadine was notably linked to Hollywood bad boy Jesse Metcalfe.

The pair clearly wish each other well as Nadine has congratulated Jesse on his acting projects such as US series Dallas via Twitter.
