Was Cheryl Cole Fired From X Factor USA?
Yesterday the rumors started to swirl that Cheryl Cole, the former UK X Factor judge who was transplanted to America for the new X Factor USA season, had been fired from her new job. Of course those rumors were coming from a certain celebrity gossip organization that shall not be named but starts with “T” and ends with “Z” which meant I’d ignore everything they said. But here’s the thing, FOX has made no rebuttal of the rumors and even THR is reporting:
Now it seem that Cowell has lost his battle to keep Cheryl, with Fox bosses taking the view, according to reports, that her strong North Eastern British accent is problematic. Other reports cite a lack of chemistry with Paula Abdul, homesickness and the fact that she hasn’t been up to the mark in the glamor stakes as reasons she may have been ditched.
I’m going to be very, very disappointed if this is true. Especially if the follow-on news is true that co-host Nicole Scherzinger will be taking over. I had never heard her name before she was picked up as a co-host, but the stories of her attitude aren’t very endearing.
Until FOX confirms the news either way I’m going to hold out hope. Cole was a big favorite as a judge on the UK version and I was thrilled we’d have the chance to get her as part of the USA version.
