London, (ANI): Cheryl Cole has fuelled romance rumours with will.i.am after the pair held hands and crooned a duet at a bash aboard the Black Eyed Peas' yacht in Cannes. "It was electric. We anchored half-a-mile off Monaco and it was like a mini concert. Cheryl and Will looked very much like a couple. The crowd was wall-to-wall VIP but they were all clapping at the end," the Mirror quoted a crew member of the 10-million-pound superyacht Black Shadow, as saying.
will.i.am is also expected to introduce Cheryl to his family at his sister's soon-to-be held wedding. His mum Debra Cain confirmed Cole had been invited to the LA ceremony next Saturday. "Yes, we are saving a seat for her. We love Cheryl and we are very happy she is performing with William. I spoke to him yesterday and he is really enjoying this tour with her," she said.
Debra added: "I can't tell you if they are boyfriend or girlfriend, you will just have to wait and see what happens. "William does have a girlfriend, but I can't tell you who it is. It is a secret."
