Cheryl Cole has insisted that she isn't feuding with her Girls Aloud bandmate Nadine Coyle, despite years of endless speculation that all is not well in the camp.
The 'Call My Name' candidly talks about her relationship with "lead singer" Nadine in her new autobiography, Cheryl: My Story, and says she and the rest of her bandmates - Sarah Harding, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts - knew Nadine would try to launch a career in America.
"It was no secret Nadine was trying to launch a solo career in America," Cheryl writes. "She’d been living in the States for several years by now and was forever travelling back and forth."
"I felt we were lucky she was prepared to split herself in two. This was different, though. Having her manager actually on tour with us was crossing the line, and that’s when I knew that it was finally time for us to take a break."
Cheryl also adds that she "gelled well" with Nadine before saying: "I think we all expected her to come up with some sort of excuse, but she actually just admitted, ‘It’s not really my thing’."
The girls are clearly getting along better these days because they are reuniting next week to mark their tenth anniversary.
