X Factor USA - Cheryl Cole to be paid for silence
After her removal from X Factor USA, the issue of Cheryl Cole's pay has come up. Sources say she will be paid to clam up.
The Mirror reports that an inside source revealed to them a few aspects of the deal. Cheryl may be paid her full contract, IF she keeps quiet about the circumstances surrounding her removal from X Factor USA and her feelings about Simon Cowell, the X Factor mastermind.
One insider said: “Cheryl is going to be paid off if things go to plan.
“The last thing we need is someone with an axe to grind saying bad things about the show before it even starts.'
“We hope a simple statement can be released next week and that will be the end of it. It’s is an incredible amount of money for four days’ work, but this is a multi-million dollar show with so much invested, it will be worth it. If she takes the money she is effectively agreeing to a gag.”
If the agreement goes through as outlined above, it would mean Cheryl takes home a cool 25,000 pounds an hour for her work on X Factor USA. Not a bad gig, if you can get the work.
Other US sources claim the agreement may not quickly be worked out and could take some time to iron out the details.
The closest we may ever get to hearing Cheryl Cole's thoughts on these happenings is by viewing the parody video below.
To explain Cheryl's brief stint of only 4 audition episodes, apparently she will be referred to as a "guest judge" when the show airs this fall.
"Yes, of course Cheryl will be on the American show," executive producer Richard Holloway tells the paper. "She did auditions in two cities and we will reflect that."
