Will.I.Am has taken a pop at Cheryl and her past relationships.
The singer is currently dating One Direction's Liam Payne but has divorced twice - first from footballer Ashely Cole followed by her split from French businessman Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.
"Cheryl is awesome and I am so happy for her – she is always in and out of bad relationships," he said.

Will.I.Am also poked fun at the former Girls Aloud star's pregnancy and said that it "could be a beer belly."
"She is expecting a baby but it could be a beer belly, right?" he told Closer Magazine.
"But if it's not beer and it's the real thing, that's good for her.
"I haven't really met Liam but I am so happy for her, she deserves it."
Despite the banter, the pair are reportedly working together in American on Cheryl's upcoming album.
