Cheryl Cole's Hotel Date With Producer

Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole has been hooking up with Alex da Kid for her new music, but the pair's work has extended to late night hotel dates.

Since splitting up with Ashley Cole, Cheryl's manager has been hooking her up with only the best producers, and one of them has been spending late nights with Cheryl in a hotel room.

Pictures of Alex da Kid and Cheryl Cole show the pair heading into his Manhattan hotel at 1am after a late night recording session.

"Cheryl and Alex have struck up a great relationship and have been living in each other's pockets for the past week," a source said.

"Some of the recording sessions have run into the very early hours with just the two of them and a laptop in their hotel rooms.

"Cheryl has been suffering from jet lag and couldn't sleep, so they have just worked through the night."

Alex da Kid, real name Alexander Grant, used to be a footballer for Bristol City, but is now a Grammy Award winning music producer who has worked with the likes of Rihanna, Eminem and Nicki Minaj.

"It hasn't all been work, they've enjoyed some play too," the source added to The Sun.

"If the music is going to work then they need to find their own chemistry."
