"It's great news. I'm texting her right now actually," the News of the World quoted will.i.am as saying. He mentioned that Ashley could have done without cheating on his wife who is so beautiful.
He added: "What's that about, Cheryl's too nice to be cheated on. I don't know what he's doing. If she was someone out in the clubs then I would understand it. But she's not. She's the prettiest, hottest girl. She deserves better."
will.i.am also hopes to perform with Cheryl during his band's UK tour in May. He said: "I'm going to go on stage during Cheryl's set and sing my song Heartbreaker with her because she featured on the UK version of the song. I can't wait."
