Cheryl Cole wants her new boyfriend to meet the cheating ex who's still part of her life

It’s awkward enough to bump into an ex while out with a new boyfriend – but Cheryl Cole actually wants Tre Holloway to meet her former husband Ashley.

Despite the heartache he caused her, Cheryl, 29, has stayed in contact with Ashley since their divorce in 2010 and he attended her birthday celebrations last year.

Cheryl thinks it might be a good idea for the pair of them to meet at some point,’ says a source.

Tre hasn’t kicked up a massive fuss about it but it’s hard for any man if their girlfriend is in touch with her ex.’ 

American dancer Tre, 27, seems to be surprisingly comfortable with meeting Cheryl‘s ex, though he isn’t too chuffed that the former X Factor judge still shares a surname with the footballer.

Tre wants to meet Ashley, he’s intrigued by the man Cheryl was married to and remains in touch with,’ the source tells The Daily Star.

Tre also finds it tough that Cheryl has no plans to change her surname, even though it’s Ashley‘s.’
