LONDON: Cheryl Cole says she “never, ever” felt Simon Cowell had the hots for her – despite him saying he was “mesmerised” by the star.
“I never, ever felt that vibe from Simon,” she says. “Never ever.”
Last week, Cowell, 52, called her a “toy” and described working with her as “like a mouse being played with by a beautiful cat”.
She says: “I have spoken to him since and he’s just laughing.
“He called me a toy to my face. If you read it the way people read it, it sounds awful.
"It was only ever used as a term of endearment to us, joking like.
