Oh boy! We’re sure THIS wasn’t the birthday gift Simon Cowell was waiting for yesterday!
Former X Factor US and UK judge, Cheryl Cole, is finally spilling on what exactly happened when she was cut from the US panel just last season — and it isn’t pretty!
As you may remember, at the time of Cheryl’s firing, rumors citing that audiences couldn’t understand her accent to a fabricated feud with Paula Abdul had been flying around!
Now, in her new autobiography, Cheryl: My Story, the Girls Aloud songstress is putting it ALL out there!
After getting booted by surprise, Chezza revealed she texted Simon, writing:
“F*** you. F*** Britain's Got Talent. F*** the orange and purple outfit. F*** big hair. F*** the UK X Factor. F*** you all.”
DAYUM, gurl… the outfit wasn’t THAT bad! Ha!
Of course, she had every reason to be angry — she was cut just WEEKS after starting up the gig she was promised!
Continuing her Cowell rant, Cheryl also texted:
“I hate you. I understand you're a businessman, and what I've learned from this is that business means more to you than our friendship.”
We have a feeling Mz. Cole wasn’t the ONLY axed XF judge to feel that way…!
Cheryl was eventually replaced by Nicole Scherzinger and although Simon offered her a chance to return on the UK show, she ended up turning it down.
After Nicole and Paula were also axed, Nicole has since taken up a judging role on the UK version this year.
As for Cheryl and Simon’s relationship these days?
It seems like the two have let bygones by bygones and have moved past all the dramz, seeing as Cheryl served as a guest mentor on XF UK this season!
