Singer Cheryl Cole, who is holidaying in Los Angeles, stepped out with alleged beau Derek Hough to go to a cinema.
The 27-year-old singer wore a T-shirt bearing the slogan 'Awesome' and harem pants as she went to see Angelina Jolie's new film Salt with Hough.
Cole credits the Dancing With The Stars choreographer for saving her life.
She is said to have told a friend: "I thought I had a bad case of flu and everyone else agreed. I was even told to stay at home and get some rest. The doctors were so certain it was not serious and I believed them."
And it was only after Hough's insistence that she should have a blood test that doctors discovered Cheryl was suffering from malaria and required urgent treatment, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Cheryl believed to have contracted the potentially deadly disease while on holiday with Derek in Tanzania.A source said: "Derek blames himself for Cheryl getting the malaria and was terrified she was going to die.
"She has become so important to him, he couldn't imagine his life without her."
The pair are currently enjoying a month-long holiday, staying in a villa at West Hollywood's Sunset Marquis Hotel.
