Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss


Cheryl Cole says she is owed more than $2 million dollars from her failed stint on “X Factor” last year.

The singer, who was fired from the series before it even premiered, claims in a new lawsuit that she had a “pay or play” deal with Blue Orbit Productions for the show’s first two seasons.

While Cole was reportedly paid her $1.8 million for season 1, the Brit is allegedly still owed her salary of $2 million for the second season, as well as additional monies that were to go towards her wardrobe, accommodations and living expenses.

She is now seeking more than $2.3 million in damages.
