Cher Lloyd has denied that she was ever “dumped” by former X Factor mentor Cheryl Cole.
The former X Factor contestant claimed that it isn’t a “big deal” that she hasn’t been in touch with Cole since the end of the show, despite it seeming that the two had become close during filming.
“I didn’t really get dumped, did I?” Lloyd told BBC Newsbeat. “I’m working, so is she. She’s busy as well.
“I don’t know what the big deal is with that. She isn’t my mum, she isn’t my auntie or my sister.”
Lloyd recently revealed that her debut album is almost complete and insists that she has been too busy preparing for her solo career to worry about anything else.
“I don’t think it’s a big deal her staying in touch with me,” the 17-year-old added. “That was a TV show. This is my time now.”
Cher Lloyd recently spoke to BBC Radio One about not staying in touch with Cheryl and was okay with that, since she’s still with her “main man” Si [Simon Cowell].
