‘Smitten’ will.i.am calls Cheryl Cole ‘wifey’
London: Black Eyed Peas singer will.i.am has revealed how besotted he is with Girls Aloud member Cheryl Cole, who he apparently refers to as wifey, and says needs rescuing.
will.i.am, 35, real name Williams James Adams Jr, said that Cheryl’s husband Ashley was stupid to cheat on her, and that from now onwards he will be there for her whenever she needs him.
“She needs rescuing after all she’s been through and I’m the man to do it,” the Daily Star quoted him as saying.
“The way Ashley treated her was just stupid and she knows I will always be there for her now.
“If she’s in New York I will get a flight straight away to see her. If she’s in LA I’ll get on a flight there. I’ll even come to London if she wants me to.
“Whenever she needs me she knows I’m straight there, no excuses,” he said.
Troubled Cheryl, 26, who describes the hip-hop star as her “fairy god-father”, appears to have found a loyal friend in Will, though she remains undecided about whether to divorce Ashley.
But Will is keen to prove to Cheryl that he can be trusted.
“She isn’t the type of girl who’d go out there flaunting it. She’s a real good girl. When you get a girl like that you do what you can to keep her,” he said.
“To get a girl that’s hot who knows how to conduct herself is a rare thing. You’d have to be stupid to jeopardise that,” he stated.
The rapper has even been bragging to his fans that Cheryl is his “wifey”.
“When I chatted to Will at a London club, he kept calling Cheryl his ‘wifey’,” a fan revealed.
“It’s obvious that he’s besotted by her,” the fan added.
