Cheryl has been keeping a low profile on social media recently, but she took to Twitter this week to set the record straight about a new rumour doing the rounds. The 33-year-old star – who is currently dating One Direction's Liam Payne – simply posted the word "Nope" next to a thumbs down emoji on Tuesday, initially causing some confusion among her fans. When one fan asked for clarification, she replied: "Not my song they're saying has leaked."
Cheryl set the record straight on Twitter this week
There has been some speculation that Cheryl and Liam are working on music together. Just recently the 22-year-old signed a new solo record deal with Capitol Records – and former boss Simon Cowell isn't too happy about it.
The X Factor star admitted to the Sun that he was annoyed that the boyband singer didn't sign with his company, Syco, given 1D's success with the label.
"It is a bit annoying if I'm honest with you – mainly because it's another label who has now got your artist with you worked with for so many years," Simon said. "But that is the music business, unfortunately. I don't think anyone else from the band will do that."
Cheryl and Liam have been dating since December
He added: "We had spoken a lot, him and I, about what he wanted to do next. My impression was that he wasn't in any hurry to make a record because he discussed this last year. He was more into song writing.
"I was teasing him saying, 'If you come up with a great song Liam, make sure it is for you and don't give it away. When you're ready, I'm ready.' So I was a bit surprised. Of course there is a part of you that goes, 'Maybe we should have had the conversation.' That maybe is my fault, but it has happened now."
Simon Cowell has said Cheryl will make an "amazing mum"
Liam and Cheryl have been dating for seven months now and are clearly head over heels in love. Just recently, there have been rumours that they are expecting a baby together, and Simon did nothing to dispel those reports when asked by the Mirror last week if Cheryl is expecting. "I guess that's what happens when you are with someone," he said.
"Cheryl would be an amazing mum. I have seen her with my son Eric and other kids over the years and she is incredible. She is very good with them. I think she is in a great place in her life right now. I had dinner with her a couple of months ago with Liam and they were great."
