Cheryl Cole has broken her silence on the strange situation that led her to be fired from X Factor.

One day Cheryl Cole was on top of the world, the next saw her released from not one but two incredible gigs. When Cheryl Cole was fired from the new American version of X Factor, she tried to get her position as judge on the British version back — only to find it had already been filled.

Now the Brit is breaking her silence for the first time since this all went down. In a letter to fans on the Cheryl Cole website, she wrote:

“I wanted to talk to you all direct, and first and foremost thank you all for your continued love, unbelievable LOYALTY and support and remind you that I love you all to bits.

Where do I start? I have had the weirdest past few weeks (nothing unusual there though.) I wouldn’t even know how to begin to tell you all about it. What I do know for certain is that I have the BEST, most unbelievable people out there, who I feel so lucky to call my support system. You never fail to amaze me. I have been reading your letters and opening my prezzies (I feel very spoilt) and hearing all of your kind, special and inspiring things you want to say to me.

I feel your presence and strength always, and no matter what decision I make or what it is I’m facing, I appreciate you all more than you’ll ever know. It also breaks my heart a little when I hear that some of you worry about me and need to know that I am ok, so I want to PROMISE you that I am absolutely fine and more than ok!

I have had the time that I have not had in so long to just chill with my loved ones and do the normal things that I like to do. See my friends and family and be with my doggys :D. It feels long overdue and sooooo good, even my feet are happy to not have to wear a pair of high heels hehe… You are my little soldiers and you mean the world to me.”

Cole can’t be too upset about the deal. She was reportedly paid her full $1.5 million salary even though she was canned.
