The 'Messy Little Raindrops' star has allegedly been spending time in Los Angeles with the son of the 'Endless Love' singer.

Cheryl Cole has reportedly struck up a friendship with the son of iconic singer Diana Ross.

The 'Parachute' singer is currently in Los Angeles working on the follow-up to her 2010 album 'Messy Little Raindrops' and is said to have been hanging out regularly with the 23 year-old musician.

"They've been hanging out together as they were both staying in the same LA hotel," a source told the Daily Star.

"Evan is gorgeous. They really hit it off chatting about the music biz."

Evan began his entertainment career as an actor, most recently appearing in The CW's teen drama 90210, before releasing his debut single 'Yes Me' in February.

Cheryl flew out to the US west coast last month to finish her third studio album, and recently promised fans that new material would be released "sooner than you think".

The '3 Words' singer was romantically linked to Los Angeles music producer Patrizio Pigliapoco earlier this week, although he has since denied the tabloid claims on Twitter.
