Cheryl Cole 'isn't very intelligent'
Simon Cowell's biography writer really doesn't think much of Cheryl Cole. It wasn't enough to publish Simon Cowell's sex fantasies about her, Tom Bower just isn't done have a go at her.
Bower had spent time with her while she was on American X Factor. "I was sitting next to Simon the whole time during X Factor US and I immediately knew that Cheryl Cole wasn't working."
"I flew with him from LA to New York and even before that he'd asked me what I thought about her and I'd said: 'She's not working and Steve Jones is even worse'."
The writer of Simon's (officially unauthorised, but actually authorised quite a lot) biography, Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell has also had a pop at Cheryl's intelligence.
"I'd sit with Cheryl at mealtimes and, in my opinion, her real problem is she's not very intelligent."
