Cheryl can make it on her own, says

Black Eyed Peas manager and Cole's manager believes Cheryl can do it without the X Factor

According to the star the Brit can easily make it on her own.

"X Factor is not the only way for Cheryl to break the US" said in interview with Heat magazine "Cheryl is a recording artist first. Over the next few months she's potentially going to be working with artists like Rihanna, Katy Perry, Usher and of course, the Peas".

The 36-year-old also stood up for Simon Cowell, saying that he too has people to answer too, and axing Cheryl was not a one man decision. "Sometimes his hands are going to be tied" the Black Eyed Pea said "That's a guy who cares about her"
