Nicola Roberts has also waded into the argument
Cheryl Cole and MC Harvey, Alesha Dixon’s ex-husband, have been involved in a massive Twitter row over his claims he and the Girls Aloud singer had a ‘secret relationship.’
In an interview with Now magazine, the rapper said that the pair had a brief fling in 2010 after Cheryl‘s marriage to Ashley Cole ended.
Hitting back at the claims, the 28-year-old singer made the unusual move of speaking out on Twitter.
She wrote: ‘Was this ‘relationship’ happening in your head @harveyofficial?! Are you smoking something?’
Before she added: ‘I think I’ve met you once maybe twice at public events and with your wife.’
Clearly riled, Harvey, who’s 17-month marriage to Alesha Dixon ended when it emerged he had cheated on her with his Daddy Cool co-star Javine Hylton, responded to Cheryl’s denial, saying: ‘Do you actually want me to tweet some of the messages you emailed me @cherylcole pipe down and stop playing the saint in front of your fans.’
Followed by: ‘I had your back @cherylcole until you sent that disapointed in you if the public seen these emails you would end up with egg on your face.’ (sic)
Continuing his outburst, he added: ‘And let’s get this straight @cherylcole I don’t need no hype of you! I’d rather go broke and work in sainsburys than talk about your personal sh*t.’ (sic)
Cheryl’s bandmate Nicola Roberts even got involved in the row and declared the rumours not true before she joked: ‘Emails?! I think someone’s been having you on mate… She doesn’t do emails, she does phone sex.’
In the article, appearing in this week’s issue of Now, Harvey said: ‘There was a relationship and an attraction to each other’s aura.
‘She’s a good girl. We’ve got a great respect for each other.
‘The conversations we had… it was like two people who’d gone through so much and both respected each other because of it.’
A Now spokesperson said: ‘We interviewed Harvey on January 22, taping the entire conversation, and we wholeheartedly stand by our amazing exclusive.’
