London: Singer Cheryl Cole`s mother is wary about her daughter`s relationship with dancer Tre Holloway and fears he might break her heart.
Cheryl`s mother Joan Callaghan met Holloway, 27, at a party last month, where she told friends she was "wary" about his relationship with Cole.
The 53-year-old also said she was unhappy that Cheryl, 29, missed a recent family gathering with brother Garry because she was with her beau..
"It`s early days and she isn`t 100 percent sure of Tre yet. He looks good on Cheryl`s arm but Joan fears he will not be there for her long term," thesun.co.uk quoted a friend as saying.
Cheryl, who divorced England and Chelsea soccer star Ashley Cole in 2010, began dating Tre in March, five months after they danced together during her "X Factor" performance.
The friend added: "Any man dating Cheryl should be aware they have to pass the vigorous test and standards set by Joan. She sees herself as more of a protecting force than ever. As it stands Tre has a long way to go before he is accepted."
