Cheryl Cole 'Exhausted' Trying To Impress Simon
According to sources, she is 'in total awe' of her X Factor boss...
According to Heat magazine, the Girls Aloudstar is working so hard to get in SiCo's good books, as well as trying to crack the US, meaning she is 'highly stressed and exhausted.'
An insider told the celebrity gossip publication: "Cheryl is in total awe of Simon. She says she knows what he's doing and trusts him implicitly."
"So, if he wants her to attend some event, fly off to the States to talk to record companies or work her ass off to prove why she should be on the US X Factor, she'll do it - even if she's wiped out."
They continued: "She also wants to prove to him that she's a worthy protege. That in itself is like a full-time job. He can be very unforgiving of people who whinge or are weak, so Cheryl never says no. He friends and family tell her she needs to slow down as there's a worry she could get ill again."
Heat also claims that reports that Chezza had signed a £6 million record deal in America are untrue, with their mole claiming SiCo is 'determined' to make it happen.
They added: "Simon cares for Cheryl and realises how much she depends on him career wise and emotionally. This is why he is pulling as many strings as he can to help launch her career in America."
Meanwhile, following allegations that Simon branded Cheryl 'a brat' for fleeing to Los Angeles instead of mentoring her acts on the XF, reports have now suggested that Cowell is blaming Derek Hough for distracting Chezza.
Look magazine has reported that SiCo was 'unimpressed' with Cole visiting her rumoured boyfriend, with a source revealing: "The atmosphere between Simon and Cheryl over Derek is incredibly tense."
"Simon feels he's a distraction. He thought it was ridiculous that she came back jetlagged, and couldn't believe she would go to all that trouble to spend a few hours with him"
They explained: "Simon wants Cheryl to be happy, but he feels Derek is pressurising her into spending time with him and making her put her personal life before work."
SiCo needn't worry, rumours have now claimed that Derek is dating a Cheryl…but not our favourite Geordie lass.
According to Now magazine, the Dancing With The Stars ace is in-fact seeing fellow dancer, Cheryl Burke, choosing to reignite their romance after struggling to cope with the distance between himself and the Promise This singer.
