Cheryl Reveals Fury At X Factor USA Sacking
She admits she sent Simon Cowell text saying 'I hate you'...
In her autobiography, currently being serialised in The Sun, the Girls Aloud star admitted she came to "hate" the TV mogul over the snub.
She wrote: "[Cowell] didn't even have the guts to phone or send a message warning me what was coming.
"I was furious with Simon for letting it happen like this. I believed we had a good friendship and I couldn't understand why he just hadn't been straight with me."
Chezza explained that she sent SiCo an expletive-ridden text - and told him: "I hate you.
"I understand you're a businessman, and what I've learned from this is that business means more to you than our friendship."
Despite losing respect for Simon, Cheryl has since confirmed they are now "frenemies" - but insisted her recent return to The X Factor was for her friend Gary Barlow and not Mr Cowell.
