CHERYL Cole was pushed out of X Factor USA by jealous rival Paula Abdul.

Paula targeted the Girls Aloud star and repeatedly mocked her behind the scenes, making life unbearable for the producers.

They decided one had to go, and Brit Cheryl, 27, got the boot.

A pal said: “She can’t believe it. She blames Paula for being a bitch and blames Simon for getting her the job and then failing to save her.”

Trouble boiled over during the first rounds of auditions in Los Angeles and Chicago.

It was an early wake-up call for Cheryl, who landed the prized job thanks to Simon Cowell, 51, and was hoping to make it big in the States.

It became clear that hot-headed Paula, known as Paula The Mauler, who has a long standing friendship with Simon from American Idol, was The Queen Bee on the show.

Insiders claimed scheming Paula upped her flirting with Simon to make her rival jealous and secured the chair next to him at the first auditions.

She made bitchy comments about the Geordie’s “weird ­accent”, saying no-one could understand her. She told Cheryl her face looked “fat”, saying she had been ­enjoying too much fast food in the US.

And she described Cheryl’s hair as a “ridiculous bouffant”.

Feisty Cheryl hit back and made jibes about Paula, 48, looking “old and tired’’. And when she heard Paula was having a secret birthday party, she dropped hints about “the big bash” knowing it would rile her that she had found out.

As a result, the pair had a massive bitch spat and America’s sweetheart Paula threatened to quit.

Producers called Cheryl into a meeting where they told her: “Things aren’t working out.”

Simon has been telling pals that he is furious some people have made him the “hate figure” in the Cheryl fiasco in the States.

A friend of Simon said: “It was Fox who fired her, not him.
