Cheryl Cole’s isn’t ready to move on and find new love, say insiders.
The 27-year-old separated from estranged husband Ashley Cole earlier this year and the couple are currently going through divorce proceedings.
Now claims that Cheryl – who is recovering from malaria – has just told close friend Derek Hough that she isn’t ready to start a new romance.
“She adores Derek, she’s grateful he’s been by her side and she wants him to stick around,” a source told the magazine.
“But she hasn’t told him she loves him and maintains she can’t have anything serious because she’s still too hurt to love anyone again for a while.”
This week it was revealed that Cheryl has increased security at her home in Surrey, while her X Factor co-star Louis Walsh believes the singer will be back looking better than ever.
