Report: Cheryl Cole Feels "Hung Out To Dry" After Being Fired From X Factor

Posted on Tue May 31, 2011 08:15 AM PDT


Cheryl Cole is still feeling the effects of getting the boot from her spot as a judge on the US X Factor.

Cole's friend talks about a recent conversation with the singer. According to The Mirror, Cole reportedly said the following:

    “I’ve been hung out to dry, and I know who’s to blame. I’ve had no opportunity whatsoever to prove myself and instead they’ve just cast me aside like a fool.”

The 27-year-old Girls Aloud singer reportedly blames Simon Cowell for her firing. After the drama, Cheryl refused Simon's offer to be a judge on the UK version. As a result, she was not included on the judges' panel. The UK X Factor judges are: Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland, Louis Walsh and N-Dubz’s Tulisa Contostavlos.

The friend adds:

    "Cheryl’s not stupid. She knows this is a kick in the teeth no matter what spin Cowell comes up with.”

A Fox source had the following to say about Cole's situation: "We’re not thrilled with the chemistry. Cheryl may be Britain’s sweetheart, but at the end of the day, she wasn’t a big enough name here.”

Former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger was given Cheryl Cole's spot on X Factor. Do you think she's the right fit?
