We all know crime doesn't pay, but, apparently, neither does crime prevention!
Cheryl Cole's former personal bodyguard Craig Balkam claims the X Factor UK legend owes him over $100k in unpaid wages!
Cheryl recently spoke out about her X Factor U.S. axing, and how she wants the rest of the cash owed to her — including that which was paid to her security detail.
Upon learning the singer plans to sue someone else for money she pretended to have paid him, Craig got all sorts of pissed.
“She’s got a lot of nerve — she’s ignored all my requests for payment. She has around £30 million in the bank and could pay me tomorrow with a click of her fingers, but is refusing to.”
We aren't sure how much of Craig's claims are true, but he's reportedly contacting a lawyer about getting paid the old fashioned way — through a lawsuit!
