Will.i.am has reportedly read the riot act to X Factor star Cher Lloyd, after she claimed that she hasn’t heard from Cheryl Cole since the show ended.
The Black Eyed Peas singer has been working with the seventeen year old performer on her debut album and performed alongside her on the final of the ITV series, at the bequest of his friend Cheryl. However, he was less than pleased when Cher claimed she has been abandoned by Cole. She told The Daily Star:
“Cheryl hasn’t been in touch at all.
“She is more interested in becoming famous in the States. I’ve been left high and dry. I thought we were mates.”
The Sun reports that Will has now insisted Cher apologise to her former mentor, if she wants his continued help with her career.
“Will called Cher to tell her that she has got too big for her boots,” a source told the paper.
“He has put a lot of money and effort into recording new tracks for her. He can’t work with an immature baby and won’t support her if she throws it back in people’s faces.”
