Los Angeles: Choreographer Derek Hough has revealed that he had a brief relationship with singer Cheryl Cole in 2010.
Derek appeared in Cheryl`s 2010 song `Parachute` video and the duo was rumoured to be dating, but neither of them confirmed the news that time.
"We dated for a while. I don`t speak about my time with her because I think often in this culture people take advantage of their friendships,” thesun.co.uk quoted Derek as saying.
Derek has always valued Cheryl’s performance and insists that they are still friends.
"I`ve never spoken about her because her friendship is important to me. We are still friends, we are still very close,” he said.
Cheryl is currently dating choreographer Tre Holloway.
