    Default Cheryl Cole reveals that she 'hated' Simon Cowell

    'I hate you': Cheryl Cole reveals expletive filled text message she sent to 'arrogant' Simon Cowell after US X Factor axing



    By J J Anisiobi

    PUBLISHED: 09:13, 7 October 2012 | UPDATED: 10:04, 7 October 2012
    When Cheryl Cole was ousted from the US version of the X Factor, she maintained a mostly dignified silence about what had happened.

    But now she has lifted the lid about her public bust-up with X Factor supremo Simon Cowell after he cut the singer's American career short.

    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.


    Best of enemies: Cheryl Cole, pictured arriving for US X Factor auditions in 2011, sent Simon Cowell a foul mouthed text message in anger

    In her new autobiography Cheryl: My Story, she also accused Cowell of valuing his business more than their friendship following last year's spat as she brands him a gutless weirdo.

    After finding out she was off the show she angrily text Simon: 'F*** you. F*** Britain's Got Talent. F*** the orange and purple outfit. F*** big hair. F*** the UK X Factor. F*** you all.'

    Cole, who was a judge on the UK X Factor for three years, 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: 'He [Simon] seemed more arrogant than ever and he began speaking quite rudely to the contestants as he told them what to do and where to go next.'


    Falling down: Cheryl said that Simon was acting arrogantly backstage when they were on the show together

    Cowell also told her that her big hairstyle and choice of colour-blocking clothing was all wrong and she would have to change it before she appeared on the show again.

    Three weeks later while on a break from filming, Cole said she was asked to meet X Factor's executive producer in a London hotel where she was told she was being axed from the US show but still had a place as chief judge on the British programme, where she could take Gary Barlow's role.

    The producer also mentioned her strong Geordie accent may have been a factor in the decision, she said.

    Centre of attention: Cheryl was in Cannes, France, when she received a phone call from a TV producer telling her to meet up urgently

    In the book, serialised in The Sun Sunday, the singer, who found fame in 2002 on reality television show Popstars: The Rivals, said she refused the offer.

    Speaking about Simon, she said she was angry and upset that he couldn't tell her himself despite the fact they were supposed to be good friends.

    Cole said she wrote in her text to the entertainment entrepreneur: '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.'

    The singer was replaced on the US X Factor with Pussycat Dolls star Nicole Scherzinger, who is a judge on this year's UK series.

    She said she made up with Cowell around six months later, with the mogul describing the decision to axe her as 'the worst mistake' of his life.

    I just love her face so much. I mean honestly, I don't want her to speak. Just hire a stylist Cheryl and whore yourself out for my benefit. Don't talk or sing though, please.

    I kinda find him sexy too & I can't tell you why either. Maybe it's the accent? Maybe it's the fact that he doesn't care if he pisses people off with his opinions? Or a combo of the two? IDK...

    Cheryl is totally gorgeous.
    And she's proven that she can have a U.K hit without the X Factor/Cowell machine behind her. So kudos to her.

    I liked her on the X Factor. Of course, I only watched an episode or two. She's very pretty and way better than that Nicole thing.

    I will never forgive Cowell for axing her from the American show. I was hoping you guys would like her so much that you'd want to keep her.

    Yes, business does mean more than friendship (at times). It's surprising she's just now figuring this out. At least he had a back-up gig for her.
