She's Out Again! Cheryl Paid $1.5 Million And Let Out Of X Factor Contract!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooMusic MinuteSimon CowellCherylX FactorReality TV


All right, this is just getting silly.

Is she or ISN'T she out?

Despite reports that Cheryl Cole has been invited back to judge the US X Factor, sources close to production are now claiming that after some legal finagling, the show's producers have ultimately decided to pay her the $1.5 she was contracted to receive and let her go - and all because she didn't have enough chemistry with the other members of the panel!

The insider explains:

"There was no spark. It was nobody's fault. It just didn't work."

Furthermore, sources have explained that the original plan was for producers to try and ease Cole back into the UK version of the show, but when news leaked that she was axed, her camp refused to speak with them. After hoping that she would quit so they wouldn't have to honor her contract, and then attempting to invite her back in vein, Simon Cowell, Fox, and producers at Freemantle ultimately decided that the best thing to do was pay off her contract and move forward.

Unbelievable. This is truly the definition of the word clusterfuck!

They really screwed the pooch on this one, and ultimately, it sounds as though the damage is irreparable.

Poor Chezza! So unfair!

We're very curious to see how they dig themselves out of this one - and then try to explain why she's only in a few episodes when it all finally airs!

    I am a Cheryl Cole fan, being a geordie myself it's hard not to be. But poor Cheryl?? she's been paid $1.5 million and doesn't even have to do the work for it after all! Jeez I'd take the embarrassment of being kicked off the show for that kinda money any day!!

    How bad can you feel for a person who gets $1.5 million for basically nothing? She is a beautiful, talented woman who will bounce back in a good way…but lets not go overboard with the pity.

  3. 3

    I always caught up on UK X-Factor… I will NOT have anything to do with either show now. My disgust is enormous at what they have done to her. It's not worth my time now.

    Mismanaged much???

  5. meme says – reply to this


    "Poor Chezza"? Really? She gets1.5 million dollars for doing absolutely nothing. Sweet deal if you ask me. And she now has free time to do whatever projects she wants with money lining her pockets. I'd say she won in all of this.

    God Perez, are there any articles that you post that you haven't stolen from another source? That story is STOLEN straight from The Hollywood Reporter. Adding a lame editorial at the bottom of it doesn't make it yours. You don't even site your sources. The other news & entertainment sites need to get together and sue your lazy, fat ass. The only original content you ever post relates to your weird obsession with sucking up to Gaga, and you probably wouldn't even give her the time of day if she wasn't a megastar. You are on a long down curve to nothing, sunshine.

    Simon did it before with BGT (or no talent) had a presenter and then all of a sudden disappears!

    Please, please let this be the end of this story.
    Let's hear it for contracts. This is a nice severance package.
    Now please, Tweedy, stay in the U.K., where chavs are worshipped and people can actually understand what this woman is saying.

    Re: Average Jane – You should be more disgusted at the fact that your "idol" is a chav. Hypocrite much :/

    You are so out of touch with reality that it makes you come off as a sad, pathetic and selfish creature. Take a good hard look around you shit-for-brains the world is in a bad place and you whine about some unknown Brit who is walking away with a million and a half dollars for doing absolutely nothing but waxing Simon's ballsack.

    I don't feel all that bad for her. She is in a business where it is like that. She gets a 1.5 million deal for being fired but she should have known all along it was going to be iffy. She could have handled it a lot better than she did as well, from what I have read and then deduced she got fired b/c she wouldn't put the effort in to do what the network wanted her to do.

  12. 12

    Good. Now she can move on with her life.

    It's 'vain', not 'vein'. You've got illiterates running your site.

    Re: pinkbullet4 – That money won't last long in that business. What Cowell has done is ruin her future prospects, at least as far as breaking her career in the U.S. Remember Brian Dunkleman? Cowell has to know how damaging this will be for Cheryl going forward. He didn't stand up for her and then blamed her, on top of i tall. He's the one got her into all this in the first place. What a creep.

    Re: Average Jane – Yeah, I agree. Left a really bad taste in my mouth.

  16. 16

    She's scum. No pity for that talentless, money grabbing, self obsessed brat.

  17. 17

    She's not "poor Chezza" she has been paid over $1.5 million for a 3 day's work!!! Thats more than she deserves. Glad that FOX decided that she didnt cut it with her bad negative attitude.

  18. 18

    'Her Camp' is now Will I Am. He represents her. He messed up big time. As for her fee? She should give it to charity and make a clean start. It's not like she can't afford it.

    Cheryl's better off not doing this show anyway, it'll be a total failure. The Voice has Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and Blake Sheldon, who are all have credible and successful careers. The competition has moved on, and Fox give us Nicole C-list Shirtswinger, what a joke!

    If I were her I would take that money. Go home and have a good cry and come back stronger. If she did not work out at least she is not broke. She is a very pretty girl and should do well. Best of luck!
