Cheryl Cole told her friends, she and Simon Cowell are no longer friends and she wanted to cut all ties with him.
After Cheryl Cole’s replacement with Nicole Scherzinger as judge in the American version of the X Factor, Simon tried to show that her friendship with Paula Abdul is not affected.
Simon gave Paula an intimate hug, in one of the show’s audition breaks.
They have been close, since working together in American Idol and their friendship continues on the American version of the X Factor.
Simon and Cheryl have been close friends, until Nicole Scherzinger took Cheryl’s judging spot in X Factor, because of Cheryl’s hard accent.
