Cheryl Cole parties with

Cheryl takes her mind off her recent problems at a lavish do in Cannes.

It's been a turbulent few months for the Parachute star, having lost her judging role in the US X-Factor and receiving criticism for thinking about taking back ex-husband Ashley Cole.

So Chezza decided to let her hair down and attend the party on the French Riviera with close friend and manager

Will.I.Am and Cheryl Cole

The Black Eyed Peas star wrote on Twitter:
"Its me and the "Tweety Nird" in Cannes, France... Me and Cheryl Cole in the south of France having fun."

The following morning he wrote: "My last tweet I had a typo. I put "tweedy nird" but meant "tweedy bird". B and N are close...ooops."

Wearing a strapless white dress, a tanned Cheryl looked as if she'd put her troubles behind her as she smiled while chatting to Will and other guests with a glass of wine.
