The X Factor judge wants a beautiful new home of her own

Cheryl Cole has changed her mind about moving in with Derek Hough.

The dancer bought a £400,000 apartment in LA that he hoped Chezza would share, but her mum’s worried about its location and the Girls Aloud star wants her independence.

Cheryl told him she would spend a lot of time at his, but she needs her own space,’ a source tells the Sun.

Mum Joan Callaghan will head to California with her daughter to help her settle down and Cheryl, 27, is believed to be negotiating to buy a £2m luxury apartment in the city’s famous Avenue Of The Stars.

Cheryl‘s so excited about her new life in the US,’ says a friend.

‘This is the perfect flat for her.’

Relocating across the pond to join Simon Cowell, 51, on the judging panel for the US X Factor, Cheryl can go for a swim in the private pool, visit the building’s wine cellar or work out in the gym in Century Towers

‘It’s chic, it’s a steal at just over £2m,’ a friend tells the Daily Star.

‘And it’s close to her best friends Simon and Derek.’
