Simon Cowell To Testify In Court Against Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole Simon Cowell Simon Cowell, 53, is said to be coerced to testify against former X Factor judge and singer Cheryl Cole, 29, if she appears before the court to sue The X Factor USA producers.

Apparently, the music mogul is at the top of the witness list for Blue Orbit, the series production company, if the case is presented before the jury.

Earlier, Cheryl said she will file legal proceedings against the producers for £1.4million in unpaid fees, which also includes £62,000 each year for clothes and another £16,000 for hair and make-up, following her sacking from the X Factor USA in 2011. Besides, the “Call My Name” hitmaker also demands the monthly £9,400 rent and £1,600 per month for living expenses, as promised by the company plus

An insider said that the lawsuit surprised everyone. No judge should be compensated for a season they didn’t do.

However, court papers say that the company agreed to pay Cheryl on the account of “pay or play” basis, which implies that she will get paid even if she didn’t appear for the second season.

Cheryl, who recently announced that she will take a break from the music scene for six months after finishing the Girls Aloud “Ten” reunion UK tour, was promised to be paid £1.1 million and £1.2 million for the Season One and Season Two respectively. She claims that her none of her expenses were paid for either series.
