The “Under The Sun” singer became stunned when she was told by the executive producer, Richard Holloway, that the music top brass, who had criticized her long hair, her orange shirt and purple pants she put on when she appeared for her first show’s auditions, wanted her to be off the show. This made Cheryl very angry as Cowell, who she thought was her friend didn’t disclose the news himself.
In her newly released autobiography titled, “Cheryl: My Story”, now serialized by The Sun newspaper she wrote, ”I was furious with Simon for letting it happen like this. I believed we had a good friendship and couldn’t understand why he hadn’t been straight with me.
She continued, ”I wrote the longest text ever. ‘f**k you, ‘f**k ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, ‘f**k the orange and purple outfit. ‘f**k big hair. ‘f**k the U.K. X Factor. ‘f**k you all”.
Cheryl didn’t stop there, she said, “I hate you. I understand you’re a businessman, and what I’ve learned from this is business means more to you than friendship. I’m sad it’s got like this and I wish you the best of luck, but count me out.’ Simon texted back, ‘Can I talk to you?’ I ignored him.”
Cheryl, who later was offered to judge the UK edition of “The X Factor”, agreed finally to talk to Cowell months later said he acknowledged axing from the show but also told her that he regretted that it was the “worst mistake” ever made by him.
