Fired Judge Sues 'X Factor' Producer THR
"The X Factor" producer Blue Orbit Productions was hit with a lawsuit by fired judge and British pop star Cheryl Cole, who claims she's owed at least $2.3 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Hollywood, Esq.
Cole, who was fired from the Fox program before the first season aired, claims she had a pay or play contract for two seasons. While she was paid $1.8 million in salary for the first season, she allegedly wasn't paid an additional $2 million for the second season or money promised for expenses, the complaint says.
Expenses included a $25,000 allowance for her stylist and a $100,000 wardrobe allowance.
Blue Orbit couldn't be reached for comment, the story adds.
