Cheryl Cole is planning on moving to Los Angeles on the advice of choreographer Brian Friedman - who works with the pop star on 'The X Factor'
Cheryl Cole is considering moving to the US.
The Girls Aloud star, who recently split from her soccer player husband Ashley Cole amid allegations of cheating, is planning a move to Los Angeles on the advice on her high-profile pals.
American choreographer Brian Friedman - who has worked with Britney Spears and Pink - is among those urging the 'Parachute' singer to consider uprooting from the UK.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Brian is trying to persuade her to give it a shot in Los Angeles.
"He told her he's happy to be her chaperone until she settles. High-level people already love her there."
Cheryl worked with Brian on Simon Cowell's UK TV talent show 'The X Factor' and turned to him for advice when she first launched her solo career.
The source added: "It wasn't Ashley she turned to, it was him. She takes his advice very seriously."
Meanwhile, Cheryl and Ashley have sorted out an agreement regarding custody of their two Chihuahuas Buster and Coco.
A source close to the pair said: "The dogs mean the world to both Cheryl and Ashley. Cheryl, in particular, is attached to them and would do anything for Buster and Coco.
"They want to sort this out as amicably as possible. To keep the peace, Cheryl is allowing Ashley to spend a few days with them."
However the 26-year-old pop beauty - who has previously admitted to only trusting her dogs and her mother Joan - is not yet ready to meet Ashley, 29, face-to-face.
The source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "She's not willing to drop them off in person - it's simply too soon. Instead, Ashley has arranged for a car to pick them up and take them to his makeshift apartment in London.
"In effect, they've negotiated an ad hoc custody agreement. Cheryl won't stop Ashley seeing the Chihuahuas, but long-term she wants them with her."
