Cheryl Cole left The X Factor on a sour note—and she may still be a little bitter. The British singer, a judge along with Simon Cowell on the U.K. version of The X Factor who started taping the first season of the U.S. version before being unceremoniously fired, has sued one of the show's producers for $2.3 million. In the suit filed today and obtained by E! News, Cole states that a "pay or play" clause in her contract entitles her to the $2 million she was promised for the show's second season, as well as various allowances she was given for hotels, stylists, wardrobe and other show-related expenses that she never got to use.
