London: Ashley Cole may be trying his best win wife Cheryl Cole back but the `Girls Aloud` singer seems to have moved on in life.

Cole, who performed on stage in a racy outfit at the O2 Arena, was spotted enjoying a cosy evening with American rapper will.i.am. The pair were seen huddled together at a
London nightclub following their appearance.

And it seems that wiill.i.am, 35, who called Cheryl "the most beautiful woman in the world", is keen to embark on a relationship with the `Fight For This Love` singer, who has
fallen out with her footballer husband over his alleged infidelities.

They laughed, gossiped and danced, and at one point, he leant in closely to whisper something in her ear. Apparently amused, Cheryl rewarded him with a playful pat.

Cole even introduced the performer to her mother Joan Callaghan.

"After posing for pictures with fans, Cheryl joined Will 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, so she seems to approve of the friendship," an insider said.

The 26-year-old singer has been supporting US hip hop act Black Eyed Peas on their European tour.

Will.i.am, or William James Adams, is the group`s front man, and also produced much of Cole`s debut album `3 Words`.

The pair were trying their best to avoid being photographed together while leaving the nightclub but rumours are abuzz that after months of working together they have become more than just friends.

It follows the revelations that Cole`s husband cheated on her. She now plans to divorce the Chelsea footballer after three-and-a-half years of marriage.
