Cheryl Cole calls Simon Cowell as key witness in 3.5 million-pounds compensation case over 'X Factor' sacking

Washington, July 15 (ANI): Cheryl Cole is all set to confront Simon Cowell in court as she steps up her 3.5 million-pound legal challenge to her US X Factor sacking.

The 30-year-old singer has turned down offers to settle with the show's makers Blue Orbit and instructed lawyers to quiz how much Cowell along with judges LA Reid and Paula Abdul earn, the Mirror reported.

A Los Angeles judge gave her the green light to see the trio's contracts.

An insider told the publication that this paperwork is a clear sign that Cole wants her day in court.

The source said that the singer is pushing for legal fees and a bonus, which could total 3.5million pounds.

The insider added that those papers could be the smoking gun if she can show others have been treated differently to her. (ANI)
