Cheryl Cole To Return To The X Factor USA?
We're confused! Reports claim Chezza could re-join the panel later this week...
It is thought that Chezza has been given 24 hours to accept her place back on The X Factor USA, with an insider from the 27-year old's camp telling the newspaper: "It's far from certain she'll say yes."
SiCo is also said to have fought for Cheryl's return to the Stateside show, with PR guru Max Clifford stating that Simon told him: "I've made it clear form the start, I've made it clear to everybody at Fox and Fremantle, the people involved, that my choice would be to have Cheryl Cole on the show."
Despite Cowell's best efforts, The Hollywood Reporter has now reported that Cole will NOT return to the US XF, after bosses apparently decided to let her go for good.
The Fight For This Love hitmaker will apparently still receive her full $1.2million pay cheque for her four day stint, with a source telling the website: "There was no spark. It was nobody's fault. It just didn't work."
The Mirror has also alleged that Cheryl is determined to prove that she was sacked from the show, regardless of allegations that she has been "gagged" from speaking about her shock exit.
Chezza is said to have complied evidence that states she was initially dismissed, with a mole telling the newspaper: "They're hoping it's a no-show so they don't have to pay her. But that plan falls flat when you look at the fact of the matter – that she's already been fired,"
"There was a meeting attended by Cheryl where it was made clear it wasn't working. Then there are emails and messages to the same effect."
The pal continued: "For the network to try and wriggle out of it by suggesting otherwise is nonsense. If she doesn't turn up to retake her place on the panel, she is not in breach of her contract - because Fox breached it themselves."
With rumours suggesting that Cheryl is still undecided over whether to return to The X Factor USA, a friend added to The Mirror: “It’s a tough decision because it’s a huge show."
“There’s still a lot of pain there. At last Cheryl is in charge of the situation. She’s finally calling the shots, but she’s really not sure.”
Will Chezza make her return to The X Factor USA? We will just have to wait and see...
