Cheryl Cole Tells Will.I.Am To "Back Off"
The Girls Aloud star reportedly thinks Will's advances are "too much"...
The celebrity publication also claims that Will has "upped his game" to date the 27-year old Geordie, following reports that she is set to move to LA for the US version of The X Factor and hopes to win Cole's heart over love-rival, Derek Hough.
Despite The Flood singer allegedly telling Will to back off, the BEP's star recently gushed about Chezza to Heat, claiming: "She's one of the strongest women I've ever met.
"I'm going to introduce her to friends so she can make LA a home and be happy there. She'll be surrounded by a bunch of talented folk to record with."
Will, who performed new single The Time (Dirty Bit) on XF last week, also reportedly changed his plans to party at Mo*vida after their performance to join Cheryl at Mayfair venue, The Red Room instead.
Cheryl's pal added to the mag: "After the club, Will invited Cheryl back to his hotel. But she said she needed to head back to hers as she was knackered."
"She had The X Factor the next day and said going back to his hotel room would have put out the wrong signals."
The friend claimed that Chezza is "flattered" by Will's advances, but is in a difficult position as she owes Will a lot and "he's a great friend."
Will.I.Am also told the mag that he has NOT tried to kiss Cheryl, claiming: "When someone doesn't really know what's going on and they're down, you can't take advantage of that."
