I got no money, no car to take you on a date, says Cheryl Cole’s ‘new’ beau

London: Cheryl Cole’s new dancer boyfriend Tre Holloway has come clean about his financial means by writing “I ain’t got no money, no car to take you on a date!” on his Facebook profile.

The cheeky statement has been borrowed from the lyrics of ‘The Way I Are,’ a song by the hip hop producer Timbaland.

But Holloway’s apparently modest financial means do not appear to have deterred former wife of footie star Ashley Cole, as she was spotted out in London with him earlier on this week, the Daily Mail reported.

The couple were photographed leaving Roka restaurant in Fitzrovia on Tuesday night.

Cole had led the way in a short black dress with a zebra stripe print and Holloway had followed in hot pursuit.

“They are clearly very close. Several times Cheryl leaned in to him and touched his knee as he spoke. There is certainly a spark between them,” the Sun quoted a fellow diner at the sushi restaurant as saying.

In recent weeks, the dancer was also seen gyrating with the former ‘X’Factor’ judge during her performances at the Capital FM Summertime Ball and in Soho nightclub G-A-Y, where the pair were seen holding hands, and even downing shots of tequila on stage.

They were also seen celebrating Cole’s birthday in Last Vegas last month, and were spotted leaving a nightclub together, after a party thrown by the popstars manager and close friend will.i.am.

The pair met, when Cole performed her track ‘Promise This,’ on the 2010 ‘X Factor’ finals.

Holloway grew up in New Jersey but now lives in LA and has danced with a whole host of stars including the late Whitney Houston.
