Cheryl Cole 'Dating Taio Cruz'
Chezza is apparently 'smitten' with the Dynamite star...
According to Heat magazine, the Girls Aloud star has had a crush on Cruz for ages, with reports suggesting that after her failed reunion with ex-hubby Ashley Cole: "Cheryl is ready to move onwards and upwards in her love life."
Speaking of Taio, Chezza - who is thought to be working with the Dynamite hitmaker on her third solo album - is said to have told a friend: "Taio is beautiful, caring and so amazing. He gives me confidence I thought I'd lost. I'm completely clumsy and dippy around him."
The pal explained Cheryl had refused to let anything happen between herself and Cruz while she was with Ashley, but now the pair are "smitten" with each other and are ready to give their relationship a go.
They revealed: "Taio has told Cheryl how he feels. He wants to take the next step. There's a lot of sexual tension flying about - it makes going to work really great."
Last week, Cruz even posted a snap of Chezza on his Twitter page as she posed wearing one of his watches, accompanied with the comment: "The gorgeous miss Cheryl Cole Sporting her new Black and Gold RXTR "R1" Watch."
However, a friend of Ashley's has claimed that he will not be happy about Cheryl's supposed romance with Cruz, because Taio is supposed to be his pal.
A mate of Cole's told Heat: "Ashley doesn't know yet, but when he does find out, he'll go mental. He'll say it's a piss take - and that you don't do that to a mate. You don't get with his ex-wife."
Earlier this week, Ashley's current squeeze, Playboy model Melissa Howe, claimed the Chelsea footballer had erased all traces of Cheryl from their former marital home in Surrey, stating: "You wouldn't think she ever lived there."
