Simon Cowell left a little bit of a stink in the air when he recently revealed that prior to him firing Cheryl Fernandez-Versini from X Factor USA he felt she had put on some weight.
Not impressed with Cowell's comments, Cheryl, 31, has called the music mogul out for dropping his gentleman's hat by speaking publicly about her frame.
The Crazy Stupid Love singer also insisted that the 54-year-old's opinion is irrelevant.

Now sold out!
What better than a shirt dress to show everyone you mean business! That's obviously what Cheryl was thinking as she opted to wear this style to the press launch of the new X Factor series.
Think Cheryl, and you automatically think glitzy dresses, Girls Aloud tutu stage costumes... and huge tattoos. But it seems like she's smartening up her act lately!
Just the other week she was spotted in a sleek colour block dress by Roland Mouret, then comes this shirt dress by coveted designer Jason Wu. Compared to previous seasons of X Factor which were rife with the likes of metallic body-con numbers, she's already kicked off this season with a style difference.
If Cheryl has inspired you to smarten up your look too then you're in luck because the high-street is full of great shirt dresses, especially the identical Jack Wills one featured below!* PRICES MAY NOT BE AS ADVERTISED ...NOW GET ONE LIKE IT FOR LESS
Speaking to Yahoo Celebrity, the 31-year-old chart topper said: 'I heard this rumour and I think a gentleman should never speak about a woman's age or weight but that's only if you're educated on how to treat a woman.
'So, unlucky for him. And who listens to Simon Cowell these days anyway. Does anybody? I don't listen to him anymore.'
Earlier this week in an interview with Radio Times, Simon claimed that Cheryl had put on weight and wasn't 'herself' which led to his decision to let drop her from the lineup of the US version of the show.

Cheryl, who recently tied the knot to French restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, is set to return to the UK show with Louis Walsh, Spice Girl Mel B and Simon but admits she doesn't always see eye to eye with him.
She added: 'Simon said a lot to the contrary which is interesting. I actually did an interview with just me and him a couple of weeks ago where he was like, 'The reason I love Cheryl and Mel is because they really want to find talent and that they're not interested in it because they're an artist'.
'I've been an artist for 12 years, you know, I found Cher Lloyd and I've had two winners.'

Cheryl and Mel are both currently joint favourites to be crowned the winning judge in this year's series with bookmakers William Hill pricing them at 2/1.
Louis Walsh is 5/2, while head judge Simon Cowell is a 4/1 outsider, but he could have the last laugh as it is 1/1 for this year's 'X Factor' winner to get the Christmas number one single, which would no doubt delight the show boss should it happen.
William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said: 'The X Factor' is the big one - millions of pounds will change hands over the next few months and once again Simon Cowell will probably have the Christmas number one.'
In it to win... Cheryl and Mel B are current favourites to win this series of The X Factor
