Pop star Cheryl Cole is dating an American dancer she met on the British version of The X Factor, according to a U.K. report.
Tre Holloway performed with the Fight for This Love hitmaker on the reality show in 2010, and they are said to have become close after they celebrated Cole's birthday in Las Vegas last month (Jul12).
They stepped out together twice in London this week (begs13Aug12), and a source tells British newspaper The Sun, "It's early days but they are an item. It's going well. They really like each other."
An onlooker noted of one of their dates, "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."
Cole split from her husband Ashley Cole in 2010 amid rumours of his infidelity, and their four-year marriage ended in divorce. She was subsequently linked to dancer Derek Hough, but has remained largely single since her split from soccer ace Ashley.
