Friends of the pop star are fuming that had Cheryl not been dumped as a judge on the U.S. ‘X Factor’ by Simon Cowell, she wouldn’t be vulnerable to being won over by the man who broke her heart. “None of this would have happened if she hadn’t lost the ‘X Factor’ gig,” a friend told The Sun. “She has gone from being incredibly busy to having time on her hands. She has been thinking a lot and was feeling extremely vulnerable when she went to Ashley’s.”
