X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has meetings with Universal label bosses during trip to LA

TAGS:

Cheryl Cole is reportedly close to signing a £6million record deal to launch her US music career.

The X Factor judge flew to LA on Wednesday to meet with bosses at the Universal label.

Cheryl got a call from some very senior people at Universal saying they wanted to see her,’ a source tells The Sun.

‘So she jumped on a plane and went to LA for 36 hours.’

It’s thought the lucrative deal would involve Universal releasing Cheryl‘s new album Messy Little Raindrops in the States as well as 2 further records. 

The 27-year-old has also used her brief trip to catch up with close friend Derek Hough, 25.

She hasn’t seen the Dancing With The Stars hunk since the beginning of September when she returned to the UK from LA to rejoin The X Factor.

Cheryl will arrive back in London today for rehearsals on the ITV show.
