Cheryl Cole's new boyfriend's mother is reportedly concerned that the singer could hurt her son because she has been married before.

The Call My Name singer, who divorced Ashley Cole in 2010, is currently dating dancer Tre Holloway, but his mum Shirley Holloway has voiced concerns about their romance.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Holloway said: ''She might hurt him. She's been married before.''

When asked if her son could ever be unfaithful to Cole, she added: ''He wouldn't do that. That's not him. He has dated in the past in college and high school but it was nothing serious.''

Holloway continued: ''He never said she was his girlfriend. But he said, 'Oh, she likes me'. I got the feeling he was maybe quite into her.

''Of course I'm curious to meet her. If this is a serious relationship then I'm looking forward to meeting her because I trust Tre's judgment.

''If he likes her, then she must be a good person.''
