In her new autobiography, Cheryl: My Story, the former Gils Aloud star at lasts lifts the lid up on the pair's bust up, admitting that she sent him an expletive-filled text message condemning his sacking of her from the US version of The X Factor and the lack of warning she received. Her hostile text message also tells the X Factor boss her disappointment that she was not told of the news face to face, adding "I hate you."
The singer went on to send another cursive text, telling 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."
The new book also reveals that she was called to the show's head office in London shortly after her first stint on the US version, during which time she was told that she would be sacked from the show, however her old post on the UK version of the show is still open. The bosses also revealed that her strong Geordie accent was one of the main reasons for her dismissal.
