Cher Lloyd dealing well with pressures of fame

Cher Lloyd is learning to cope with the downsides of being in the spotlight as she hits back at reports that she recently spoke negatively about her former X Factor mentor, Cheryl Cole. 

The young star has been dealing with unwanted media attention after apparently saying that Cole is more interested in her own career, and has taken to social networking site Twitter to clear up these out of hand rumours. 

She tweeted this morning, March 21:

"I never said anything about cheryl, give me a break!!!!"

Following messages of support from her fans, she then added:

"Thank you to everyone who has my back! I appreciate it! Love xxx"

Lloyd is currently taking part in the X Factor live tour, which has taken her across the UK playing in some of the country's best arenas, and you can watch her recent performance here:
