Tre says the singer ‘likes' him too

The mum of Cheryl Cole’s new man says he’s very keen on Chezza.

Cheryl has been snapped going on several dinner dates with American backing dancer Tre Holloway this week and the pair are said to be getting pretty close.

And Tre’s mum Shirley Holloway has admitted that her son has talked to her over the phone about the Girls Aloud star.

‘He mentioned that one day last month they went somewhere,’ says Shirley, 56.

‘He never said she was his girlfriend. But he said, “Oh, she likes me”. I got the feeling he was maybe quite into her.

‘I’m curious to meet her. If this is a serious relationship then I’m looking forward to meeting her because I trust Tre’s judgement. If he likes her, then she must be a good person.’

Even though Shirley, who lives in New Jersey in the US, is excited to about being introduced to Chezza, 29, she’s a bit worried about her boy, who she says doesn’t have as much experience in love as Cheryl.

‘She might hurt him. She’s been married before,’ Shirley tells The Sun.

‘He has dated in the past in college and high school but it was nothing serious.

‘I don’t know Cheryl. I’ve only seen pictures on the internet.’
