Will.i.am suggests Simon Cowell is to blame for Cheryl Cole's X Factor USA axe
The singer jumped ship from the UK X Factor to join the inaugural series of the USA show in 2011, but she was axed during the auditions stage.
The Sun quotes will.i.am as saying that a lot of British people find it hard to break America - but he added that Cole found it difficult because of one Brit in particular. He said:
"There are English guys that go to America and it's hard for them. Let's take Cheryl Cole for example – she went and did a TV show and it was hard for her. And it wasn't hard for her because of an American – it was hard for her because of a Brit."
He concluded: "Now that’s kind of weird, isn't it?"
