Cheryl Cole is suing Now magazine for libel because of a story in which a front page headline claimed she was involved in a “secret romance” with rapper MC Harvey.
Cheryl Cole has filed papers to sue the magazine over the stories it ran after an interview with the Rapper. 32 year-old MC Harvey, real name Michael Harvey Jr, allegedly spoke with Now magazine and after much probing, revealed that he had a secret relationship with Cole, after her split from Footballer Ashley Cole. Cheryl Cole took to twitter immediately, when the story broke tweeting “Was this ‘relationship’ happening in your head?” A heated Twitter argument between the pair, followed with Harvey saying he had the emails to prove it, and ended his rant saying “rather go broke and work in Sainsbury’s than talk about Cole’s personal life”.
Cheryl Cole 28, is also suing over a later story headlined: Cheryl & Harvey: The Proof. Which claims that MC Harvey went on to take copies of the mentioned emails to the Magazine, with the purpose to, in his words, prove his relationship with Cheryl Cole.
Cole has filed papers against publishers IPC Media at the High Court suing for aggravated damages, for the original story and has accused Now magazine’s publishers of misusing private information about her, in the stories and is seeking an injunction to ban IPC media from repeating the allegations
Former So Solid crew member MC Harvey and Girls Aloud singer Cheryl cole fight it out on twitter after Harvey told magazine that they had a secret relationship after her split from Footballer Ashley Cole.
The argument started yesterday afternoon, after Cheryl Cole heard about the story in NOW magazine, Cheryl tweeted “Was this “relationship” happening in your head @harveyofficial?! Are you smoking something?’ Then tweeted again saying “@harveyofficial I think I’ve met you once maybe twice at public events and With your wife!! #s**tjustgetsweirder”
within minutes Mc Harvey replied with a collection of tweets, ‘Do you actually want me to tweet some of the messages you emailed me @cherylcole pipe down and stop playing the saint in front of your fans’….. ‘I had your back @cherylcole until you sent that s**t. Disappointed in you if the public seen these emails you would end up with egg on your face……’And let’s get this straight @cherylcole I don’t need no hype of you! I’d rather go broke and work in Sainsbury’s than talk about your personal s**t.’
Harvey, claimed he had a secret relationship with Cheryl when she was an X Factor judge back in the winter of 2010, When eveyone was reporting that she was dating DerekHough. He tells the new issue of Now magazine: ‘There was a relationship and an attraction to each other’s aura…She’s a good girl. We’ve got a great respect for each other. ”We started confiding in each other. A lot of it was like: “We can’t trust anyone out there, so we’re just gonna trust each other.”
Cheryl’s band mate Nicola Roberts came to her friends defence , Nicola tweeted: “Emails..?? I think someone’s been having you on mate..” The singer then added: “#shedoesntdoemailsshedoesphonesex.”, she also asked if Harvey had ever heard of fake accounts ! Harvey concluded the Twitter argument by tweeting ‘Its funny how the hype has calmed down since I mentioned the emails. Where I come from we don’t snitch I’d rather die than sell my soul #simples’.
Regardless to who is telling the truth, the publicity won’t be doing Harvey any harm, as his new music is due to be released next month, he has a single due to be released in March, a collaboration with young new artist Lady Leshur.
