Cheryl Cole has lifted the lid about her public bust-up with X Factor supremo Simon after he axed the singer as a judge on the US version on the show.
The former Girls Aloud star, 29, revealed how she sent the music mogul an expletive-filled text message in which she told him: “I hate you,” and condemned him for not warning her about her sacking face-to-face.
In her new book Cheryl: My Story, the celebrity also accused Cowell of valuing his business more than their friendship following last year’s spat.
Cole, who was a judge on the UK X Factor for three series, said that after the first day of filming auditions for the US show in 2011, the record label boss asked her if she wanted to return to the UK.
Describing his comments as “irritating beyond belief” she said: “The only reason I was doing the American X Factor was because Simon more or less told me I was doing it.”
Three weeks later, Cole said she was asked to meet X Factor’s executive producer where she was told she was being axed from the US show. The producer also mentioned her strong Geordie accent may have been a factor in the decision
