Cheryl and Ashley Cole, who have now split due to allegations that Ashley had cheated on Cheryl with 5 other women, are expected to loose £300,000 on their Surrey Mansion according to property website ‘Zoopla.‘
The pair bought their mansion in October 2007 for £3,550,000, but it has since dropped in value to £3,247,537 which means a loss of £302,463 if they are to sell it.
The Girls Aloud singer and X Factor judge announced her split from Chelsea and England footballer Ashley Cole, after allegations hit the press that he had cheated on Cheryl with 5 other girls, all claiming some a sexual intercourse with him of some form.
A spokesperson for Zoopla.co.uk has released a statment saying “If the Coles managed to sell their Surrey mansion, they’d stand to make a loss in the current climate and this may well come as a shock for the couple who had the Midas touch.”
but added “However looking at other footballer pads it is likely that the property may well have a unique decorative interior and style for which a specific buyer may be willing to pay a premium for it.”
The Coles have a joint fortune of £17 million, according to figures from the most rescent ‘Rich List’
Before the couple got married Cheryl said that she found the idea of a prenuptial agreement “disgusting“.
“I think that’s defeating the point. We’re getting married because we’re committing ourselves to each other to spend the rest of our lives together. No ifs and buts,” she said.
“I think [pre-nups] are disgusting. I could understand if you’re 93 and you’ve got billions of pounds and this 24-year-old wants to marry you in a month. But we’re a work in progress, we’re going to build our married life together not thinking about if it ever ends.”
