The 'Parachute' singer and Patrizio Pigliapoco have been "inseparable" as he helps her conquer America.
Cheryl Cole is apparently dating her Los Angeles producer Patrizio Pigliapoco.
The Girls Aloud star has been spending a lot of time with the 21-year-old while she attempts to break the American market and finishes work on her new solo album.
A source for the Daily Star was quoted as saying: "Cheryl and Patrizio have been together 24/7. They have really become inseparable."
The 'Messy Little Raindrops' singer divorced footballer Ashley Cole back in September 2010 and has since been linked with dancing professional Derek Hough and close friend Will.i.am, who is now her manager.
However, the same source reports that this new rumoured romance is the real thing.
"They've rarely been apart and have genuinely fallen for each other. Cheryl really adores Patrizio – she loves his carefree attitude to working and to life, and can't wait to see him again," they added.
Patrizio also told The Sun that he finds the British singer "gorgeous" and enjoyed bonding when she was teaching the producer swear words.
He said: "She's really funny. She was talking about w*****s and we didn't know what it meant. 'She was laughing. The funniest thing was trying to get her to go into detail, because she was trying to be ladylike. Then we got it!"
X Factor judge Louis Walsh also recently showed his appreciation for Cheryl as he was pictured dressed as the singer for the latest issue of Heat magazine.
Cheryl's third studio album is expected to be released sometime in 2012.
