Cheryl Cole Bought Out of 'X Factor' Contract?

Cheryl Cole has been let out of her contract for the X Factor, but will be paid, according to THR.

The 27-year-old British entertainer will reportedly receive the full $1.5 million she was owed under her contract.

For the past couple weeks, there has been speculation whether Cheryl had been let go from the reality competition series, which will premiere this Fall.

Initial reports said that Cheryl would be replaced on the judging panel by the show’s co-host Nicole Scherzinger.

Over the weekend, new reports started that Cheryl would return to the show as a judge after Simon Cowell rooted for her to return.

    I’m rooting for Nicole to be the judge, don’t see the big picture with this Cheryl and I dislike her voice. Nicole is gorgeous, talented and can sing. Regardless who’s the judge, I’m not watching this show. Too much drama, and American Idol – The Sequel.

    What a farce.

    This is clearly a publicity stunt to get Cheryl ‘nobody’ Cole’s name out and about in the US before the show airs.

    @кредиты webmoney: I know her name. What I mean is: Whatever significant has she done to receive any coverage by the media?

    i was super psyched for this show to premeire in the fal but now am outraged and totally dissapointed. I love cheryl and have been waiting and waiting for her success to branch out to the US I thought this would be her breakthrough. This is a crazy mistake I was totally only tuning in for her. We need fresh faces. I like sherzinger but I have seen enough of her go back to the studio and write some music. I hope selena gomes gets behind this because she is a true CC fan and maybe she can get enough American fans to rally. This is really bad news and totally a letdown. Cheryl you are totally wanted here on American TV!
