We’ve been desperately trying to get info on him ALL DAY.
But when we stumbled across an old article about Cheryl Cole‘s new hubbie Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini (who she’s only been dating for THREE MONTHS)… we didnt’ *quite* know how to react.
The piece from The New York Times back in 2002 describes the popstar’s other half as ‘Eurotrash’ and a ‘playboy’, getting us all a little bit worried.
We hope he’s good enought for our Chez!
Journalist Julia Chaplin describes meeting Jean Bernard in a Manhattan nightclub, where he basically talks about all the gorgeous women in his life.
‘”Look, there’s that beautiful girl I met in Monaco last summer,” said Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini, 21, a New York University student from France, who summers on the Riviera, spends winter vacations in St. Barts and took last year off just to party,” it says.
The piece continues: “Mr. Fernandez-Versini’s evening had gotten off to a bumpy start. He had canceled his usual 10:30 p.m. dinner with an entourage of models and european friends at Downtown because Giuseppe Cipriani, one of the owners, was in Italy.
“‘It’s not the same energy when Giuseppe’s not there,” Mr. Fernandez-Versini said in a thick French accent. Instead, he rerouted to Serafina on Lafayette Street.
“There he spied a stunning young woman at a long table for 20, and jumped up to whisper to one of the restaurant’s promoters, “Can you ask her to come over to my table when I’m finished eating?”
“She joined Mr. Fernandez-Versini as soon as he’d washed his last bite down with a Red Bull and vodka. “Come to St. Barts for New Year’s!” he proposed.”
While you *might’ be thinking ‘douchebag alert’, we reckon that we were ALL pretty differernt when we were 21, and it’s TWELVE YEARS AGO FOR GOD’S SAKE.
Despite his partying, Jean Bernard managed to bag himself two degrees and start his own business… plus he’s a massive hottie.
Also – he seems completely besotted with Cheryl. We think she’s on to a winner!
