LOL! FAIL FACTOR!
Cheryl Cole says she signed a VERY lucrative deal to be a judge on “X Factor” back in 2011 … and even though producers fired her ass before Season 1 ever got off the ground, she wants her money … more than $2 MILLION … this according to a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ.
Cole — a British pop star — says she signed a “Pay or Play” contract with Blue Orbit Productions that guaranteed her $1.8 million for Season 1 … and $2 million for Season 2 … even if she never appeared on the show.
According to the lawsuit, Cole says producers did pay her the $1.8 mil for Season 1 … but stiffed her on the $2 mil for season 2, as well as all of the bonus money for expenses.

Cheryl would have made the US version of this show sooooo much better. I wish they would have kept her for the whole season. It's really sad actually. Simon probably knows this too. :/
Ack, she might have made the US show bearable. Stupid stupid stupid to dump her...for the people they did go with.
@Forever504 Because she waited for season 2 and it's nearly over but they haven't payed her still.
