( FF ) - Cheryl Cole's marriage has been dealt a further blow after her husband allegedly offered a girl he bedded money to abort his child.
Hairdresser Aimee Walton, who claims to have slept with Ashley last December after a drunken night out, had a pregnancy scare after their illicit sex session because Ashley refused to wear a condom.
Single mother-of-one Aimee says as soon as the soccer star's representative found out about the possible pregnancy, she was offered cash to get rid of the baby.
Aimee told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "The representative told me, 'The best thing for Ashley is to terminate the baby. You'll be offered private medical care and financial support to make the termination easy.'"
Aimee also claims Ashley - who married Girls Aloud singer Cheryl in a lavish ceremony in July 2006 - phoned her to apologise when he found out about the scare, saying: "F***ing hell! I'm shaking. I'm sorry. S**t!"
It was has also been claimed Ashley slept with another woman six months after marrying Cheryl, but paid her ?6,000 to keep quiet.
Glamour model Brooke Healy alleges she romped with Ashley at his Surrey home and he then offered her ?300 for a taxi home.
