Simon splashed out on a special gift for Cheryl

Simon Cowell has rubbished rumours that he chose to skip Cheryl Cole‘s 30th birthday celebrations in Las Vegas.

Cheryl enjoyed a crazy night out with boyfriend Tre Holloway and ex-Girls Aloud band mates Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts at the weekend – but Simon, 53, had to work.

‘I didn’t snub Cheryl’s party. I just couldn’t go because of my filming dates. We are close friends again and I adore her,’ Tweeted Simon yesterday.

The pair fell out after Cheryl‘s very public sacking from US X Factor in 2011 but they’ve since managed to sort things out between them.

Despite not being able to make her bash, Simon bought Cheryl a very special present on her big day.

He treated her to a piece of land in the Scottish Highlands – which came complete with the title of Lady.

‘@SimonCowell don’t worry I know. And thank you for my lovely gift!! Xx,’ Tweeted Cheryl, along with a photo of her deeds.

‘@SimonCowell & I will now be referred to as Lady Cheryl Cole when you address me both in person & through the media.’
