The Girls Aloud singer always denied Harvey's claims that they had a "communication relationship" following her split from husband Ashley Cole in 2010, suing Now when it reported that "several hundred emails" allegedly sent between the pair had been verified by a media lawyer.
Now printed a formal apology to the 'Call My Name' star in its latest issue today (February 19), agreeing to pay damages and legal costs after determining that the emails were composed by a "calculated and meticulous" hoaxer who "went to great lengths to deceive" MC Harvey into thinking he was talking to Cheryl.
Cheryl responded with delight to the magazine's statement online, tweeting the hashtags: "#nowmagazine #expensivelies #muggedoff #whohaseggontheirface?"
Uploading a picture of the apology, she continued: "Here you go.. #apology and I am now satisfied that you are F***ING LIARS!!!!!
"Turns out [Girls Aloud bandmate] @nicolaroberts was right #idontdoemailsidophonesex lolololol!!!"
Shortly after that, MC Harvey broke his silence on the matter, branding Cole a "fake arse pop singer" and her fans "Internet gangsters".
"Oh know I got twelve year old pop fans playing Internet gangsters what should I do. Soldiers my arse UNO brainwashed (sic)," he wrote.
"@cherylcole thanks for agreeing a settlement...Good thing you got money to protect your arse #fakearsepopsinger.
"Come to the surface don't hide behind... lawyers. your fans talk alot you don't.
"Cheryl soldiers lmaooooo what you no about soldiers chick never even spent a day in the ghetto #letsparty."
Digital Spy contacted MC Harvey's representatives, but they are not yet able to comment.
