Cheryl Cole awarded X Factor Payout


Cheryl Cole has won a payout from the makers of X Factor USA over her abrupt exit from the talent show.

The singer was dropped after recording just two episodes over concerns that American viewers would not understand her Newcastle accent.She has now reached an undisclosed, out-of-court settlement with the show's producer, Blue Orbit.

The 30-year-old sued the LA-based firm for $2.3m (£1.4m) for loss of earnings earlier this year.

Cole was replaced on the show by Pussycat Doll star Nicole Scherzinger, who is also a judge on the UK X Factor.

According to legal papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Cole was promised a salary of $1.8m (£1.1m) for the first season, and $2m (£1.2m) for the second.
