Patrizio Pigliapoco is the latest in a long line of men to be linked to Girls Aloud member and former 'X Factor' judge Cheryl Cole since her split - again - from former husband Ashley Cole last year. Pigliapoco, a Spanish music producer, has reportedly been working with Cole on some new tracks ahead of her forthcoming album third album to be released next year but it's now being suggested that the pair are dating. Cole was once strongly linked with Black Eyed Peas member Will.I.AM, among others, but the pair strenuously denied it, instead insisting they were just good friends.
The UK's Daily Star has got hold of a source who told the newspaper "Cheryl and Patrizio have been together 24/7. They have really become inseparable. After a lot of near-misses when it comes to blokes, Cheryl hopes this one could be the real thing," the eagerly forthcoming insider went on to add "They have loved their late night sessions in the studio, just the two of them, they've rarely been apart and have genuinely fallen for each other. Cheryl really adores Patrizio - she loves his carefree attitude to working and to life, and can't wait to see him again."
Whether love really is in the air is to be debated, others Cole's been linked with in the previous twelve months include dancer Derek Hough, producer Alex Da Kid and singer Taio Cruz - all of which has turned out to be little more than rumour.
