Cheryl Cole has reportedly been giving Tulisa advice on her love life, following the N-Dubz star's split from boyfriend Fazer in January.
Tulisa, who replaced Cheryl on The X Factor this year, ended her 18-month relationship with her bandmate after numerous arguments and claims of cheating.
Speaking to Reveal magazine, a source says: "Cheryl was straight on the phone to Tulisa after she split from Fazer.
"She knows what it's like to have a very public break-up and she's been giving Tulisa loads of tips to deal with it."
The insider added: "Her main advice to Tulisa has been to concentrate on her career and forget about her love life. Cheryl also recommended she get new outfits in a bid to boost her confidence and help her move on from fazer"
But not everyone has been approving of Cheryl's helping hand.
"Tulisa really looks up to Cheryl and is listening to her advice," the source continues, "But Dappy's furious. He thinks Cheryl is sticking her nose into something that doesn’t concern her.
"He's best friends with Fazer, so his loyalties lie with him."
