Cheryl Cole Files $2.3 Million Lawsuit Against 'X Factor' Over Firing

Cheryl Cole is suing the production company behind 'X Factor' for $2.3 million over being hired then fired before its first season aired.

Cole, who was replaced after early auditions because producers were worried American audiences wouldn't be able to understand her accent, claims she had a two year contract with Blue Orbit Productions and is demanding compensation.

The British singer was paid $1.8 million in advance for the first season but Cole says she has not been paid the additional $2 million for the second season, along with money promised for wardrobe allowances and living expenses in Los Angeles.

Those include a one-time $100,000 wardrobe allowance, $25,000 stylist allowance; $15,000 per month allowance for an apartment and $2,500 per month for living expenses.

Cole is also asking for interest on the money and Blue Orbit to cover legal fees.
