They’ve only just become friends again.
Speaking to Yahoo Celebrity at the Wembley X Factor auditions, the head judge admitted that he was surprised that Chezza had even managed to bag herself a hubbie.
Speaking about the popstar’s shock marriage to the (rather gorgeous) Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, Simon said:
“I’m surprised Cheryl has found someone to be with her full time as she’s such high maintenance.”
We *think* the music mogul was just winding Cheryl up… but let’s just hope she’s in a good mood when she hears about it.
Simon had some other (rather nicer) things to say about the newlywed X Factor judge as well, admitting that she’s made a good choice with JB.
Earlier in the day, he said: “Cheryl is the happiest I have ever seen her. Her new husband is a great guy.”
And Cheryl wasn’t the only person that Simon had a few things to say about, speaking out on his FORMER co-judge Tulisa.
The NDubz star recently went through a hellish court case after a drugs sting, but at least her former boss Simon seemed to be sympathetic, and even admitted that he’d be keen to work with her again.
He told us: “Tulisa’s been through a lot. But I wouldn’t rule out working with her in the future.”
This year’s X Factor might be a whole lot interesting than we thought!
