‘F**k Liam Payne’: Cheryl’s Instagram Was Hacked In A Really Upsetting Way This Morning

We wouldn't be surprised if she deletes her account permanently.

Cheryl has been extremely quiet on social media of late, so when two posts appeared on her Instagram feed in quick succession this morning, fans quickly knew something was not right.

Of course, it wasn’t so much the number of posts but the content they contained that sparked concern. In what appears to be an attack by hackers, two Satanic images appeared on Cheryl’s feed, both containing ‘666’ along with various profanities.

One of the posts, an upside down cross, even contained the words “F**K LIAM PAYNE,” direct hit at Cheryl’s boyfriend, with whom she’s strongly rumoured to be expecting her first child. “Have they broken up?” asked one confused commenter.

The second post, a Pentagram star, had the caption “666 HAIL SATAN B**CH THAT’S WHAT WE DO.”

Both images have since been removed from Cheryl’s Instagram feed, and activity on the account appears to have returned to normal after a brief outage. The singer recently opted to disable comments on some of her posts – three images posted during her Paris Fashion Week appearance with L’Oréal – but after this morning’s incident we wouldn’t be surprised if a total comment lockdown follows.

Just last Friday, the singer’s divorce from Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini entered the final application stage. Although the pair broke up in January, it’s though the divorce process was delayed by Jean-Bernard’s reluctance to sign a non-disclosoure agreement preventing him from speaking about his marriage to Cheryl in the media.
