Cheryl set to return three rings to ex-husband Jean-Bernard... days after he demands she hands over his late mother's heirloom 

It was reported earlier this week that Cheryl was baffled by her ex husband's request for his late mother's ring through the media. 

And now, the Fight For This Love singer is said to be returning not one, but three rings to the French restaurateur, including a £275,000 diamond.  

The former X Factor judge is believed to also be handing over £15,000 wedding band as part of her divorce settlement, according to the Sunday People

Moving on: Cheryl is said to be returning not one, but three rings to the French restaurateur, including a £275,000 diamond.

Keeping her £20million fortune intact after the split, the starlet - who is reported to be expecting her first child with beau Liam Payne - will give JB back his late mother's ring after he gifted it to her for their first anniversary.

The Frenchman at the time allegedly wanted the band to 'epitomise my unfailing, unconditional love'. 

MailOnline has contacted Cheryl's representative for comment.

The news comes after the songstress has hit back after JB demanded his ex return his late mother's ring via the media.

You can have it! The starlet will give JB his late mother's ring after he gifted it to her after their first anniversary (which the star is pictured wearing last year)

A source close to the star told MailOnline that she's 'baffled as to why the request has been made via a newspaper' and will return the family heirloom 'immediately.'  

A source told the Daily Mail: 'He gave her the jewellery to celebrate 12 months together.

'It belonged to his mother. It is now the 10-year anniversary of her death and he desperately wants it back, but Cheryl still hasn't posted it and has made no effort to return it. He is pretty upset and would like it back.'

An insider has told MailOnline though that up until now Cheryl had heard nothing from JB about the ring.

'Cheryl is baffled as to why this request has been made via a newspaper,' the source says.

'JB never asked for the ring back during months of discussions between lawyers. If this story is true and the request is made via their lawyers she will send the ring back immediately. She has not worn the ring since last year.'

Another friend of Cheryl's insisted the star had 'forgotten' all about the gift.

The insider said: 'Since they split up last year, Cheryl has not worn it. She put it in a safe place and totally forgot about it because he has never asked her for it.'

This comes after Jean-Bernard was pictured giving Michelle Heaton the eye at the Jack Reacher: Never Go Back European Premiere in London.

Now officially a single man, the French native couldn't help keep his eyes off the former Liberty X singer as she walked past him, sizzling in a coral floor-length gown in Leicester Square.

He had a big smile on his face as he talked to a pretty blonde who he may have arrived with.

Jean-Bernard's upbeat appearance comes after he was handed a decree nisi at the Central Family Court in London on Thursday morning to former wife Cheryl, 33.

The pair's ill-fated marriage ended in just 14 seconds with neither party was in attendance.

In papers filed at the court, Cheryl complained of Fernandez-Versini's 'unreasonable behaviour', saying it caused her 'stress and weight loss'.

The district judge's certificate handed out after the hearing said: 'The marriage having irretrievably broken down, the facts proved being the respondent's unreasonable behaviour.'

In one section entitled 'If you consider the respondent's behaviour has affected your health, state the effect it has had.'

Underneath with an answer by Cheryl lawyers, it said: 'It caused stress and weight loss.'

The singer shocked fans when her weight plummeted last July when she returned for a new series of The X Factor.

A statement released to MailOnline from Cheryl's camp reads: 'Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini have today obtained Decree Nisi in their divorce proceedings. No further comment will be made and they ask for their privacy to be respected.'

It is believed the pair have already agreed the terms of the separation, with Cheryl keeping all of her estimated £20million fortune.

The divorce comes 10 months after their separation was announced in January. It also marks a year since they were last seen in public together last October.

The couple had been married for just 18-months but living apart for five months by the turn of 2016, splitting on their secret second wedding anniversary.

Before confirming the split, there were reports of jealousy causing tension, while Cheryl's family admitted the language barrier was an issue.

As the pair lived separate lives last Autumn, the star's cousin Tony Tweedy said: 'Cheryl can't speak French. I'm told he speaks little English. What sort of relationship is it if she cannot speak French and he can't speak English? They may as well have a threesome with the interpreter.'

Cheryl was previously married to love rat footballer Ashley Cole, 35, for four years, between 2006 and 2010.
