Such a shame that it's come to this.
The singer's mother, Joan Callaghan, says:
"She was terrified Simon had become her puppet master and she was being turned into his new Sinitta - Simon's little pet. She is determined to carve out a career without him. He'll have to come up with something special for them to even speak again."
We're sure she's probably not too happy with the way things have gone, but we would never suggest burning bridges with him all-together!
Unfortunately, this sort of seems like this whole situation took on a life of its own, and was pretty out of everyone's control by the time she got pink slipped, but who knows?
There has yet to even be an official announcement, so all we can do is wait and see what comes of this whole mess!
What do U think?? Should Cheryl cut off Simon??
