Cheryl Cole Told To Get Therapy After Ashley Divorce

Cheryl Cole was advised to seek help from a therapist following her split from ex-husband Ashley Cole.

The 'Call My Name' hitmaker has had a turbulent few years as she was hired and fired by Simon Cowell on the X Factor USA, made a failed attempt to crack the US with music, near-death experience from malaria and obviously being cheated on by then-husband Ashley.

Cheryl has now spoken out about the media frenzy that has surrounded her for the last few years that nearly drove her to breaking point.

Talking to GQ magazine, the 28-year-old said: "I found myself at one point just looking at my team, thinking: 'Please somebody, help me,'"

Cheryl said. "Although I didn't do it, it was suggested that I seek therapy."

Cheryl, who is planning a musical comeback with her third solo album, has slammed the media for putting her in an "inhumane" position and said that her social life suffered terribly as she was left paranoid.

"I was paranoid the whole time. There was no escape, I was stuck in that glare, in that bubble," she told the magazine. "It's not healthy for anybody. I had no life. I was kept under surveillance. It was aggressive. It was dangerous and it was inhumane."

She also added: "They [the paparazzi] are sick people."
