Cheryl Cole has vowed to stand by her husband Ashley Cole following reports of his infidelity with a hairdresser - despite the Chelsea footballer admitting he was too drunk to remember the alleged night.
Single mother Aimee Walton, 22, claims she had sex with Cole after meeting him at a club on December 8.
Meanwhile in the Sunday Mirror, a second girl, glamour model Brooke Healy claims she also slept with Ashley following Chelsea's Christmas party in December 2006.
Brooke said, "Ashley told me not to tell anyone about what had happened."
"The majority of London's West End scene knows about Ashley and they know what he gets up to and that he's not faithful to Cheryl. I feel bad for her because she married somebody who isn't faithful."
Girls Aloud singer Cheryl and the left back player spent eight hours on Saturday locked in talks at their lawyer's office in west London as Ashley missed his team's game against Wigan Athletic.
In an interview with the News of the World, a "hurt and angry" Cheryl revealed that Ashley confessed about his behaviour hours after it happened.
The 24-year-old Geordie recalled, "When Ashley returned in a state he told me these girls had been invited into the VIP area..."
"He told me, 'Something happened last night but I was so drunk I don't know what.'
"All he could remember is his friends leaving him upstairs with this girl and him being so ill that he was sick and she was putting a bucket under his head, looking after him."
"I was furious, furious that he didn't know what had gone on."
"...Ashley had told me about a drunken night and I'd kept it a secret for nearly two months."
She continued, "I'd only told my mum. I adore the girls from the band but I hadn't even told them. It was something that Ashley and I had to get through together."
In reply to Aimee's claims that she romped with Ashley before and after "he vomited on the floor, all over the cream carpet", Cheryl hits back, "That's utter rubbish, I know that for a fact. I know Ashley intimately. When he's under the influence he isn't capable.
"When I heard what this girl had said I realised she'd made part of the story up. And, to be honest, that has helped me get through this.
"Obviously I felt sick to the stomach. What woman and wife wouldn't? And to be honest I felt humiliated and crushed that this girl was saying these things and people were believing it.
Describing Ashley's confession as "the worst night of my life", Cheryl admitted the couple's relationship has been strained, but insists "we love each other".
Cheryl continued, "It's fair to say we constantly rowed over the next few days."
"I know it must be hard being a single mum but that's no excuse to exploit Ashley and potentially ruin our marriage.
"I feel like I'm living in a nightmare and I don't know if people will allow me or Ashley to forget it.
"I don't want anybody to be angry with Ashley or to judge him—that's my job as his wife."
Ashley and Cheryl have been married for 18 months.
