Will.i.am Talks About Cheryl’s ‘Bad Relationships’ And Liam Payne

The rapper has been close to Cheryl over the years, and he seems to approve of her boyfriend...

Cheryl’s pal Will.i.am is very pleased to seeing her looking so loved-up with boyfriend Liam Payne.

The Voice presenter managed Chezza until they parted ways in 2013, so he’s seen her go through some difficult times over the past few years.

But with rumours of a ‘pregnancy’ at an all-time high, the 41-year-old reckons Cheryl, 33, is doing pretty well for herself right now.

He says: ‘Cheryl is awesome and I am so happy for her – she is always in and out of bad relationships.

‘She is expecting a baby but it could be a beer belly, right?’

Merry Christmas 🎄 🎁 from our families to yours 🎅🏼 Hope you've had a great day 🎉

LOLz. And as for Liam, 23? Will continues: ‘I haven’t really met Liam but I am so happy for her, she deserves it.’

Both Cheryl and Liam have been pretty quiet on social media over the past couple of weeks (maybe because they have a nursery to decorate…?!).

But Chezza hinted that she was feeling positive about 2017 on New Year’s Eve, when she Tweeted: ‘For 2017 I wish for you to live, love, laugh and learn 🙌🏼 wishing you all happiness health & prosperity ❤️😁🎉 #HAPPYNEWYEAR #2017.’

The couple also spent Christmas together, with Cheryl captioning a cute festive selfie of them together: ‘Merry Christmas 🎄 🎁 from our families to yours 🎅🏼 Hope you’ve had a great day 🎉.’

Rumours about their happy ‘news’ has been circling for months now, but Cheryl really got tongues wagging when she stepped out with what appeared to be a sizeable ‘bump’ in November.

Neither she nor Liam have spoken out about the speculation, but we have a feeling this year may be a special one for them…
