X Factor 2013: Simon Cowell turns Cheryl Cole into a Lady with his (cheap ass) birthday present!
There was some speculation over the weekend that the feud between X Factor mogul Simon Cowell and former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole might be back on after he reportedly “snubbed” her birthday party in Los Angeles…
However, as we reported recently, Simon categorically denied that he’d deliberately shunned Cheryl’s 30th birthday bash, and claimed that he was simply “too busy” to attend.
But it seems he did send a pressie to the Girls Aloud star, which may or may not have been taken as something of an affront…
He gave her the gift of becoming a bona fide Lady – which a cynical person may think implied she wasn’t a lady already, and hence, in Disney terms, may intimate she was a tramp – as he bought her the novelty present of a piece of land in the Scottish Highlands that entitles her to use the term Lady quite legally.
The gift package can be purchased for around £30, which to multi-millionaire Simon is perhaps the equivalent of ordinary bods like you and I buying someone a Penny Arrow – if they even still exist – for their birthday.
However, of the gift, a source close to Simon told The Sun, “Simon had the deeds for the land and the details of her new title delivered to where Cheryl was staying.”
Erm, big whoop.
What do you think of Simon’s present?
For now, here’s a look at Simon and Cheryl together on X Factor…
