It's all speculation at this point, but several UK tabloids are reporting that a massive infidelity scandal is rocking the Brits, and the States' very own Derek Hough, long-time professional dancer on Dancing with the Stars
, is involved, sort of.
Singer, television personality, and Britain's sweetheart Cheryl Cole and hubby football superstar Ashley Cole are reportedly going through tough times, after she found racy texts on his phone implying that he was sleeping with the source, and possibly many more.

Enter Derek Hough, who had been dubbed Cheryl's rebound guy after he was spotted leaving the Beverly Hills hotel where she's staying in Los Angeles at four in the morning with his pet dog in tow. He allegedly stayed there for ten hours. Sources say they have grown close in light of the controversy involving the Chelsea star.
The two became close after sharing the dance floor on her ITV Christmas special two months ago. Hough, who previously announced that he'll take part in the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars
, also starred in Cheryl's video Parachute.
Divorce proceedings are reportedly underway for the couple's four-year marriage.
Adds an unnamed close friend of Cheryl's to the UK's The Mirror: "Derek has been like a rock for Cheryl. He's told her that whatever the time, day or night, he's there for her and she really needs someone she can confide in and trust at the moment. As you can imagine, she's having trouble sleeping. A million thoughts are going through her mind."
Hough makes a return on the Dancing with the Stars
dance floor on March 22.
