Cheryl Cole is dating for the first time since her public, and very messy split from footballer Ashley Cole. The 29-year old Newcastle-born star was celebrating her birthday in Las Vegas when she met up with backing dancer, Tre Holloway, The Sun can report.
The pair has been indulging in secret dates, and a source told the English Newspaper "It's early days but they are an item." During a swanky meal last Tuesday at top London restaurant, Roka, a fellow diner was stunned at their newfound affection; "They are clearly very close. Several times Cheryl leaned in to him and touched his knee as he spoke. There is certainly a spark between them."
Her new man, a dancer from New Jersey, has performed with Leona Lewis and appeared on American Idol. He is also said to be a close friend of her mentor and confidante Will.I.AM. He can't offer the same glamorous lifestyle that Ashley Cole could, his earnings as a world-class soccer player would supersede that of any backing dancer, but modest ties are perhaps what attracted a beauty like Cheryl.
Holloway rents a poky room from his chum in L.A, and has somehow kept his star-studded romance a secret from his close friends, until now. "This is the first I've heard about it. I don't even know who Cheryl Cole is." Said Tony Testa, who lives with him in Los Angeles.
