London: Thought she might have presented herself as the girl next door, Cheryl Cole acts more like a princess, says ‘X Factor’ judge Simon Cowell.

Cowell, who sacked her from the US version of the show only two weeks into filming, has compared Cole to the late Princess of Wales.

“She was like Princess Diana when she would walk out in England,” the Daily Mail quoted him as telling The Hollywood Reporter.

He said that she had completely changed because she was not getting the lavish attention she was used to in Britain.

He said: “I accepted the fact that people didn’t know her here, but I think it did have an effect on her.”

According to Cowell, she was even demanding his dressing room.
