Cheryl denies rumours she wore X Factor patterned trousers to make a statement
Cheryl Cole taken to her Twitter to deny rumours that she was making a tongue-in-cheek statement about The X Factor by wearing jeans with a print very similar to the show's logo.
The star was famously axed from the US talent show, so many thought the trousers were a comment on what had happened.
But the 28 year old has taken to Twitter this morning saying she's not trying to send out subliminal messages to anybody through her jeans.
Cheryl wrote: "Promise I am not trying to send out subliminal msgs to anybody through my jeans.. They just looked cool to me.. But since you mention it."
