X Factor 2013: Simon Cowell to testify against Cheryl Cole in US lawsuit?
Simon Cowell could end up in the witness stand during Cheryl Cole’s upcoming lawsuit, it has been claimed.
The X Factor boss hired the Geordie beauty for his American show two years ago, but sacked her after a matter of weeks and now she wants payback.
Insiders have told Now magazine that the British star, who once admitted that he was romantically interested in Cole, is top of the witness list for X Factor production company Blue Orbit, if the case comes before a jury and isn’t settled outside court.
The Girls Aloud star is thought to be suing the company for £1.4million. She was paid in full for one full series of the show, but is demanding full payment for a second as well as £62,000 each year for clothes, £16,000 for hair and make-up, £9,400-a-month for rent and £1,600-a-month for living expenses.
A TV insider told The Sun recently:
‘Everyone is surprised by the lawsuit. No judge would be paid for a season they didn’t appear on.’
Court papers submitted by Cheryl’s lawyer claim that the ‘Under The Sun’ hitmaker was promised payment whether or not she starred in the final show. She received £1.1million for her very few appearances on season one but is now demanding £1.25million for the second run, as well as expenses which she believes are owing.
