Recalling their first meeting, Jean-Bernard said: “I fell in love, what could I do? I didn’t know Cheryl was famous when I met her. I was having a party at my house in South Africa and she turned up, but I didn’t know who she was. I always go for very beautiful women.”

Since their break-up Cheryl has been dating One Direction’s Liam Payne and is even said to now be living with him in LA. Jean-Bernard has been linked to a series of women, including Cheryl’s former friend Vanessa Perroncel and Pamela Anderson.

"I’m not going out with Vanessa, I’ve known her for 10 years and she has a boyfriend. Me and Pamela are good friends,” he said. “She is a great girl. We were also with Paris Hilton that night. Just because you are out with someone, doesn’t mean you are in a relationship.”
