Cheryl Cole slaps `X Factor` with 1.4m pound lawsuit

London: Cheryl Cole has sued ‘The X Factor’ for 1.4 million pounds over her ruthless sacking from the US version of show last year.

The Girls Aloud singer wants to be paid the earnings she missed out on after she was fired from Simon Cowell’s talent show, the Sun reported.

She was paid 1.1 million pounds for the first series despite only completing auditions in two cities, Los Angeles and Chicago.

But the lawsuit filed in the US against Blue Orbit Productions complains she was promised a second series too and was never paid for that.

Cole said that she was also promised 62,000 pounds for clothes each season.
