Boxer believes dancer Derek Hough is just a really good mate to Cheryl Cole
‘I had dinner with Cheryl and Derek in LA last week. They’re not going out,’ he claims. ‘He’s not her boyfriend.’
But is Derek, 25, who’s been linked to Cheryl since they starred together in the video for her single Parachute, just a cute accessory?
‘They care deeply about one another, but it really is just platonic,’ a source tells Grazia.
Cheryl, 27, has never spoken about the depth of her feelings for Derek, but we hope she’s having a great time with him.
The X Factor judge split from husband Ashley, 29, in February.
Update 19 August 2010: Amir Khan has denied that he made the comments quoted about Cheryl Cole and Derek Hough.
