Is the battle still raging between Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell? With claims from the music mogul’s biographer that the Girls Aloud star is stupid and even Simon himself saying that he is behind Cheryl’s phenomenal success it seems that all is not well between the former friends.

Cheryl, who recently released the video for new track ‘Call My Name’ was slammed earlier this week by Cowell who claimed her success was all down to him.

Despite axing the Geordie beauty from X Factor USA the 52 year-old has no regrets over the way he treated her.

He told GQ Magazine: “Even though we went through that pretty horrible period, I could look Cheryl in the eye and say what I did for her in those two years propelled her into a different league.”

As well as insisting to being behind her success there has been another blow against the Geordie beauty from Cowell’s camp. The author of a recent biography’ The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell’ Tom Bower accused the Girls Aloud star of “not being very intelligent.”

He told The Metro: “I was sitting next to Simon the whole time during The X Factor US last year and I immediately knew that Cheryl Cole wasn’t working.

“I’d sit with Cheryl at mealtimes and, in my opinion, her real problem is she’s not very intelligent.”

The X Factor boss is close friends with Bower and even attended the launch of the biography earlier this month so it is doubtful that he would have made the comments without Cowell’s approval.

In a swipe back at her former boss the 28 year-old singer denied that she was writing a tell all book about her relationship with Cowell because she wouldn’t want to inflate his ego.

She told Capital FM: “I heard that too that I’m writing a book on Simon. I mean, as if his head couldn’t get any bigger when he read that. The hair exploded. He’d be lucky if he got a footnote on my book.”

Simon may have hit out at his protégée over the stunning singer’s reaction to revelations in the Bower biography that he was ‘obsessed’ with her during their time on X Factor.

“She’s not happy that he portrayed her as some kind of sex object. It actually disgusts her,” a friend told The Daily Mail. Ouch!

We are not surprised that Simon is no longer feeling the lover for his favourite!
