Cheryl Cole's 'X Factor' Drama Continues, Singer Asked to Apply for Visa

Cheryl ColeFirst Cheryl Cole was booted from the U.S. version of Simon Cowell's 'The X Factor,' then the UK version -- but now the singer and reality judge is rumored to be applying for a U.S. visa as her employment drama continues.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the British pop star is currently in a "chess match" with 'X Factor' producer Fremantle.

The report says Fremantle is trying to avoid paying Cole for her four days of work as an 'X Factor' judge, but they don't want to breach her contract.

"They don't want to pay her," a source told THR. "It's a chess match."

There has been no official comment on the state of Cole and the series. Despite widespread reports to the contrary, she's supposedly still employed. Fremantle is reportedly asking Cole to apply for a U.S. visa, and Cole is set to comply.

As of now, the current reports indicate Cole is being replaced by Pussycat Dolls singer and reality TV staple Nicole Scherzinger. The 'Dancing With the Stars' champion was originally tapped to co-host the series.

Cole won't be returning to the UK version of the series, either.
Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland has joined the panel in her place.

Can only speak for myself, but I'm getting less and less interested in seeing it. I had planned to watch purely out of curiosity, but that's changing more and more to disgust with their shenanigans.
