Cheryl Cole Hires Will.I.Am As Manager
Apparently he’s already at work negotiating her X Factor USA deal…
"This is all about taking Cheryl's career to a whole new level,” a source told the tabloid. “Will.I.Am believes in her to the degree where he's prepared to stake his reputation on making her a success. He's going to be responsible for her career worldwide.
"One of the great things about Will is that he believes in Cheryl as a musician and singer as well,” they continued. “He's intimately involved in all the big decisions, as is Seth, who is a behind-the-scenes guy but very well respected."
The insider insists there are no bad feelings between the star and Hilary, who will still manage her charitable foundation as well as Girls Aloud. “Hilary has been brilliant for Cheryl but the fact is she needed someone who was well known in America to push things forward,” they said.
It’s been reported that the star has decided against changing her Geordie accent for the US, believing instead that her strong accent will help her stand out.
