Cheryl Cole V Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell says he and Cheryl Cole have "not fallen out" but has little interest in her career after The X Factor.

Cheryl Cole is rumoured to be joining the judging panel on new talent show The Voice, which would be in direct competition with The X Factor, but it doesn't bother Simon.

"If she does The Voice, I couldn't care less," he said. "Genuinely."

Cheryl turned down Simon's offer of returning to the UK X Factor, despite him giving her his dressing room, and he feels he definitely played a part in making Chezza a household name.

"Cheryl and I were incredibly close," Simon told the Daily Mirror.

"I gave her a break and paid her a lot of money. She could walk onto any TV show anywhere now."

Aside from her TV career, Cheryl is currently in LA and has been filming for new movie What To Expect When You're Expecting, as well as making new music for her album.
