will.i.am "loves" Cheryl Cole
The Black Eyed Peas star`s mother Debra Adams has revealed the pair have grown increasingly close since touring together and claims the producer is "very fond" of the British singer -who split from husband Ashley Cole in February after he was unfaithful to her.
She said: "Will is very fond of Cheryl. He says she`s an amazing woman. His feelings for her have grown from friendship into love and they`re good for each other."
Debra also admits she is excited about meeting the `Fight for This Love` hitmaker in the near future.
She told LOOK magazine: "I can`t wait to meet Cheryl. He`s told me lots of good things about her. Will has promised to take us out for a meal together next time the two of them are in Los Angeles.
"I give them my blessing. I like her and she seems like a nice girl."
While Debra is keen to meet Cheryl, the Girls Aloud beauty`s mother Joan has already got close to the US star when they hung out together backstage at the Black Eyed Peas concert at the O2 Arena in London earlier this month.
An onlooker said: "After posing for pictures with fans, Cheryl joined will.i.am who was visibly happier to have her there with him, and even spent some time talking to her mum, who came to watch her perform. Cheryl`s mum obviously got on with will.i.am so she seems to approve of the friendship."
