Most people get over a relationship by drowning their sorrows at the bottom of a glass - but Cheryl Cole has gone on a spending spree to buy a new home.
The nation tried to warn her, but blinded by love, Cheryl attempted to reignite the flame with ex-husband Ashley Cole.
Now she has been left inconsolable after discovering he had yet another fling with an air hostess as they made an attempt to rekindle their own relationship.
But Cheryl has splashed out on a Hollywood abode, overlooking the infamous Avenue of the Stars.

The palatial two-bedroom pad also boasts three luxury bathrooms, a home cinema and an outdoor swimming pool, all for the costly sum of $5,050,000 (£3million).
Cole's new Beverly Hills apartment was originally part of a five star hotel, which may explain the skyscraper exterior of the buildilng.
A local estate agent said: 'Cheryl has great taste. She is moving into the most prestigious address in the whole of LA.'
With a new home, the 28-year-old can finally move on, having called time on her doomed romance.
She has now instructed the shamed footballer: 'I’m done - delete my number.'
The former X Factor judge also cancelled a planned family party on what would have been their fifth wedding anniversary last Friday.
New reports have once again shown Ashley's true colours, with revelations he had a relationship with Virgin Atlantic crew member Kerry Meades.

The stewardess, 29, said she had bedded the sportsman back in 2004, before recapturing the magic just last month on holiday in Los Angeles.
They were reunited after a chance meeting at trendy supperclub on June 14.
The LA company boasts on its website: 'A night at supperclub is more than a dinner, it's a culinary journey like none you have ever experienced.
'It's the only thing better than breakfast in bed: DINNER in bed.'
Their chemistry led them to arrange another outing just three days later, when they met in a west Hollywood nightclub before going home for sex.

They slept together again on June 20, just 11 days before Cheryl’s 28th birthday party in London - it was this event that the couple kissed and publicly suggested they were officially back together.
Kerry claims when she saw Ashley last month he had a gift bag of Hustler lingerie, which she believes was intended as a birthday present for his former wife.
She said: 'He betrayed us both. It’s obvious the lingerie was for Cheryl’s birthday.
He obviously wanted to hide it. She should tread carefully.
'The whole time I was with him he acted like a single man.
'I don’t think Ashley has any idea how to be faithful to a woman. I’m certain he will never change.
'I thought he was serious about me and I definitely have feelings for him.
'Now I see he was getting back with Cheryl the whole time we were together. I feel sorry for Cheryl.'

Better left in the past: Cheryl has told former husband Ashley Cole to delete her number and move on from her
A source close to Cheryl said the Geordie girl is 'humiliated'.
They said: 'Once again Ashley appears to have outdone himself. Just as Cheryl’s getting back on track and working really hard on her music he does this. She is humiliated.
'Ashley had organised a family gathering, a barbecue, for when he got back from pre-season training in the Far East. This has been scrapped.
'Cheryl told him on the phone yesterday that clearly Ashley isn’t yet ready to be a committed family man.
'At one point they had a blazing row and Cheryl basically said she was through with him and told Ashley to delete her number and leave her alone.
'Cheryl is determined to keep her head down now and focus on work. What will be with Ashley will be. But it can wait.'
The source added: 'Although, in his defence, they weren’t officially back together when he had this fling so technically they were free agents then.'
Despite being a media darling, behind closed doors Cheryl's life has been shrouded with disappointment and bad luck.
Along with her relationship woes, the pop princess suffered a near-fatal blow when she was diagnosed with malaria in July 2010.
Following the will she/ won't she X Factor saga, both in terms of joining the USA panel and reprising her judging role on the UK version, Simon Cowell has now 'washed his hands' of his protégé and the pair no longer speak.
