Cheryl Cole's whirlwind romance and wedding to Jean-Bernard 'JB' Fernandez-Versini is the talk of several towns given his jet-setting lifestyle. Here HELLO! Online brings you all the details on the gorgeous French entrepreneur.
The pop star's new husband is said to divide his time between Paris, New York, Los Angeles and St Barts.
Friends say Cheryl Cole saw no reason to wait because she believes this is for life
JB, 33, runs pop-up restaurant and celebrity-hangout Cosy Box at Cannes. This starry cine festival was the perfect place for Cheryl to spend time with her new love, enjoying a series of dates on the Croisette.
He attended New York university, where unsurprisingly he was popular with the ladies.
While he's a sophisticated man of the world, JB isn't longing to be part of the celebrity scene. According to the Sun when Harry Styles came over to say hi to Cheryl, her beau asked: "Who's that?"
It's thought Jean-Bernard Fernandez Versini was behind Cheryl Cole's 31st birthday gifts
He's very protective of his girl. When he popped over to the bar to get some drinks, he warned one journalist: "Make sure no other guy tries to flirt with her."
The handsome restaurateur is teaching his new wife French, "mainly the bad words," he admits. In return, JB jokes that she is teaching him "the Geordie".
After love blossomed in Cannes, he travelled to Britain to meet her family and friends, who were just as charmed by him as Cheryl.
