Cheryl's divorce from Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini will be finalised this week, according to reports.
The pair wed in secret in July 2014 after a whirlwind romance before they separated earlier this year.
They will be granted a decree nisi at the High Court in London on Thursday, The Sun reports.
Sources say that the restaurateur will receive no money in the divorce.
“After months of debate over this divorce, Cheryl is really relieved the terms have finally been agreed by both sides."
“The negotiations have been dragging on for ages, when all she has wanted to do is move on," a source told The Sun.
The news follows speculation that the former Girl Aloud singer is pregnant with boyfriend Liam Payne's child after she was spotted with what appears to be a baby bump.
“She is in a great place at the moment, and is really happy with Liam, so she’s delighted that she can officially draw a line under her marriage to JB. This means she can now focus on the future," added the source.
Cheryl (33) began dating the One Direction star in January this year, and he is said to be "thrilled" that the divorce is almost over.
“Liam was thrilled when he found out a few months ago that the divorce would be through by the end of this year."
“He and Cheryl can now start to plan their future together without this hanging over their heads," a second source told the paper.
“He has been talking to his friends about asking to marry her and hopes they can start a family fairly soon, which is something they both want."
The couple first met when Liam was a contestant on the X Factor in 2008, while Cheryl was on the judging panel.
