Will.I.Am gives up on Cheryl Cole

Radio 1's Big Weekend - Day 1

Oh, we were hoping that might work out. He was so love-sickingly lovestruck over her…

Will.I.Am has apparently told friends, “I’m giving up on winning Cheryl’s heart.”

It seems as if her little dancing partner Derek has put Will off.

A source said, “Will’s crushed. He genuinely believed he had a chance with Cheryl but he has now woken up to the fact that it’s a definite no-no.

“Will is used to getting what he wants and generally he has the pick of the girls.”

But Cheryl has been getting awfully close to Derek recently. He’s been there when she first split up with Ashley, and they shared some steamy dance moves on stage the other day.

The competition however has proved too much for Will, with the source continuing,”He’s a proud man and it was a massive blow to see Cheryl dancing in Derek’s arms on stage. Will had been the one joining her on stage for duets, now he’s realised it’s time to move aside.”

Aw poor Will.I.Am. Any takers?!
