A romantic getaway for popstar Cheryl Cole and DWTS boyfriend Derek Hough has turned deadly. While vacationing in Tanzania, Cheryl Cole was bitten by an infected mosquito and contracted malaria.

Derek Hough who surprised his new girlfriend with the lovers trip, thought it would be a fun holiday for the two. Heartbroken and distraught over her illness, he blames himself. His step dad says, “Derek feels guilty. He is very distressed about all this. He feels he has done this to her. He rang his mom yesterday in tears. Derek feels it’s all his fault. He organized the holiday as something wonderful. For it to end up like this is terrible. He feels dreadful.”

Cheryl Cole has been in intensive care for the last week fighting for her life but was thankfully released to a private clinic today for recovery. Derek Hough and her mother have been holding a beside vigil for the singer, giving her love and support during this critical time. The doctors have now revealed she has fluid in her lungs and they are uncertain when she will be able to be released from the hospital. Aftercare will require Cheryl Cole to be off work for at least six weeks or maybe longer.  SCARY!

Cheryl Cole’s former husband Ashley Cole has been checking in on his ex wife. Even though they are getting a divorce he still has love for her.  Her family and friends are worried sick about her as well.

Cheryl born under the zodiac sign of Cancer is a sensitive soul. The emotional drama over her husbands cheating and subsequent divorce has take a toll on her psyche.  Astrologically, it appears that her illness may require her to take a leave of absence from the “X Factor” this season. Not sure if Chery Cole and Derek Hough will survive this health scare but he will definitely will give her comfort and support during her time of need.

Cheryl Cole has a tough year ahead of her but we think she will make a full recovery. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her. Astrochicks is wishing her a speedy recovery. Hang in there girl!
