The couple are rumoured to be having a difficult time

Cheryl Cole‘s relationship with dancer boyfriend Tre Holloway is reportedly on the rocks.

The couple are currently living on opposite sides of the Atlantic because of work commitments and Cheryl, 30 – who’s keen to settle down and have kids – is said to feel ‘neglected’.

Cheryl and Tre, 28, first met on The X Factor in 2010 and got together last year, with Cheryl saying that ‘there is a stronger connection and a chemistry you wouldn’t have with any other dancer’.

The pair were last snapped at her 30th birthday party in the US in June.

Tre‘s career has flourished since Cheryl gave him a solo spot on her A Million Lights tour but now it’s claimed she fears ‘he doesn’t need her anymore’.

Cheryl hasn’t commented on the rumours but a Twitter account believed to belong to Tre seems to hint that they’re working on things.

‘So simple, but so true! “Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many,”‘ reads one Tweet.

Another says: ‘Some people are brought into your life to be mirrors, to show you behaviors and habits that need to change.’
