The Saturdays’ record label bosses are preparing to sue editors at U.K. tabloid The Sun after they falsely linked British singer Frankie Sandford to Cheryl Cole’s estranged husband Ashley.
Sandford was alleged to have embarked on a romance with England soccer ace Ashley Cole following his split from the Fight For This Love hitmaker in February (10).
The publication claimed The Saturdays star had spent several nights at the sportsman’s home in the last few weeks.
Sandford shot down the report on Monday (04Apr10), insisting she had never even met Ashley.
She wrote on her Twitter.com page, “Really upset and angry by the story in The Sun. Can’t believe they can just print something that’s not true. I’ve never even met the man.”
Now executives at her record label Fascination have revealed they are seeking advice from lawyers about the report.
In a post on the Fascination Twitter blog on Monday, they wrote, “The story about Frankie in The Sun today is not true. She has never met him. We cannot say anymore as we are taking legal action.”
Cheryl walked out on Ashley Cole after he was alleged to have cheated on her with five different women.
Frankie Sandford has dismissed rumours that she is secretly dating Ashley Cole.
The Sun today claimed that the footballer – who split from wife Cheryl in February – was trying to keep his new relationship with The Saturdays singer under wraps.
Sandford, who was yesterday forced to shoot down suggestions that she was dating Aston Merrygold, has since taken to Twitter to refute the speculation about Ashley, writing: “Really upset and angry by the story in The Sun. Can’t believe they can just print something that’s not true. I’ve never even met the man.”
Sandford’s label Fascination Records echoed her sentiments in a similar post and is believed to be consulting lawyers over the article.
A tweet on the company’s Twitter account reads: “The story about Frankie in The Sun today is not true. She has never met him. We cannot say anymore as we are taking legal action.”
Sandford recently claimed that she has been single since she broke up with McFly star Dougie Poynter earlier this year.
