London: Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole has let out her Hollywood home to reality show judge Paula Abdul following her axe from the US `X Factor` earlier this year.

Cole, 28, who was axed from the reality show after just four audition rounds, had bought a property when music mogul Simon Cowell first signed her up for a judging role on the show but now her fellow panellist lives in the plush abode, Femalefirst reported.

Following a recent dinner with the 28-year-old star, chat show host Piers Morgan said, "It`s true that she bought a luxury apartment in Hollywood, but she doesn`t live in it. Paula Abdul does.

"One thing`s for sure - forget all the stuff you`ve read about Cheryl being down, out and miserable. She`s back on top form and raring to go again."

Morgan also claimed that Cole "ate like a horse" during their dinner together.

"Over a delightful two hours, Cheryl dispelled many a myth. She eats like a horse. Seriously, I`ve never seen so much food go down such a slim neck since I part-owned a young stallion called Ledham," he added.
