Cheryl Cole Admits: "I've Been Bullied Online"
Chezza says people have attacked her on Facebook & Twitter...
Cheryl Cole has revealed that she has been a victim of online bullying.
The Girls Aloud star claims in an interview with Grazia magazine that she's been subjected to a number of attacks from people on Twitter and Facebook for over a year.
She explained to the publication: "In the last few years, I've been bullied on Facebook and Twitter. It's evil and very public. People judge my appearance and hair, and say that I look fat."
Chezza went on to relate her situation with the teenagers that have been helped by her charity The Cheryl Cole Foundation, telling the mag: "I get what these kids have gone through because I had a tough upbringing and I understand what it feels like to get bullied like some of them."
Speaking of her growing up on a tough council estate in Newcastle, the 29-year old added: "I want to help these young people because I know how it feels to come out on the other side and be someone who achieves."
The Call My Name singer also recalled the first time she met Prince Charles - whose charity The Prince's Trust works with Cole's foundation in the North East - stating she accidentally addressed him by his first name, despite having etiquette lessons.
Cheryl said: "The first time I had tea with him at Clarence House, I had an etiquette lesson on how to address him.
"But I forgot to say Prince and just called him Charles, which was embarrassing and someone started coughing at my mistake behind me to correct me. But he couldn't stop laughing."
