Cheryl admits she is ‘struggling with her energy levels’

Girls Aloud singer Cheryl is said to be in a “dark place” since the death of her former bandmate Sarah Harding and trying to focus “on her wellbeing”.

Sarah tragically passed away in September after losing her battle with cancer and Cheryl is reportedly still struggling to come to terms with the shock.

A source told Closer magazine: “The shock and devastation have hit her so hard.

“She’s not in any mindset to think about performing so she’s taking a little break to prioritise her wellbeing.”

The report comes after Cheryl pulled out of her Birmingham Pride performance last month.

At the time the mum-of-one told fans she was not “emotionally, mentally or physically” able to perform.

Cheryl spoke of her grief after Sarah’s death, telling her followers about the: “painfully strange and horribly unfamiliar waves of disbelief” she was feeling.

Cheryl, Sarah, Nadine Coyle, Kimberly Walsh and Nicola Roberts spent most of their twenties together after forming Girls Aloud on PopStars: The Rivals in 2002.

However, as the years went by there were rumours of a rift between Sarah and Cheryl as she, Kimberly and Nicola went in a different direction.

The source added: “Despite making amends in the final months of Sarah’s life, Cheryl is filled with sadness over all the precious time they lost.”

Sarah and her Girls Aloud bandmates got together for a secret reunion in what became their final meeting before Sarah tragically lost her battle with cancer.

The Wear It Like A Crown singer headed off on a girls’ weekend with the foursome to reflect on everything the band had achieved.

The group stayed at private members club and hotel Soho Farmhouse where they were able to catch-up without intrusion.

The 100-acre-farmland was also convenient for Sarah, as it wasn’t too far from her mum Marie’s house where she had been staying during her treatment.

Sarah admitted she was nervous about seeing the girls, who hadn’t been all together for eight years.

In her book Hear Me Out she wrote: “I was picturing them all turning up looking fabulous and glamorous, while I looked … well, like I did. Not myself. Not my best.

“It’s not that I thought they wouldn’t understand or be judgemental, of course; it’s just that when we were together as a group, part of our thing was the glamour.”

The band proceeded to watch Girls Aloud: Off the Record, the reality docuseries made for E4 back in 2006.

Sarah said the girls were cringing over their past antics with Cheryl said to be particularly mortified.

“I have to say, I looked on fondly. ‘You only miss this when it’s gone,’ I told the girls,” Sarah said.

The Mirror has contacted Cheryl’s reps for comment.
