Cheryl Cole gets terrifying death threat



Get your low down on what's happening in the world of Hollywood, right here!

The X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has apparently received death threats over her axing of reality show contestant Gamu Nhengu.

One threat carried the terrifying warning: "Every1 has a bullet for you."

The sick rant accused the singer of making "the biggest mistake of her life" by ditching teenage fans'' favourite Gamu from the ITV talent show.

And shockingly the sender says that, if he can't get to 27-year-old Cheryl, he will "drop" any girl he finds with the same name.

The hate-filled tirade -- circulated to phones around the country via BlackBerry Messenger amid outrage over Gamu's exit -- slurs Cheryl by accusing her of racism, reports the Sun.

One part reads: "I've never felt like dis over xfactor until u told gambu (sic) she is not going to the live show.

"Dat cheryl was da biggest mistake of your life. U want to act innocent on tv like you don't know wat ur doing. But we all know how racist you are."

Sent from Tottenham, North London, the rant tells gorgeous Cheryl -- newly divorced from footballer Ashley Cole -- never to visit the area, warning she would be "punched until she bleeds".

It adds: "You are a hater. You can't sing 2 save your life. So to make urself happy you want to get rid off all the good singers you know will make you look s***. Nobody wants to buy ur album."

The message -- signed off with the street name Supa Capone -- ends with the words "Find Me".

Both Scotland Yard and X Factor bosses on Tuesday said they were looking into the message, which accused Cheryl of keeping 18-year-old Gamu out of the X Factor finals last weekend as she was jealous of her talent.

Another sick demand for Cheryl's death had appeared on Facebook.

A site -- entitled 'cheryl cole to die a painful death for being a T**t and blasted into space' -- was set up by poster Dan Mcmanus and had 39 members.

Its description reads: "ppl who want to kill cheryl cole for being a great big t*** and making painful music that ppl want to shoot themselves to."

The threats came amid a huge backlash over Girls Aloud star Cheryl's decision to axe talented Gamu and instead put through waif-like Cher Lloyd and Katie Waissel, 24, who both mucked up in judges' house auditions.

Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms-cast of the comedy flick The Hangover are swapping Las Vegas for Bangkok as the sequel of the movie is heading to Thailand.

The trio starred alongside Justin Bartha in the hit 2009 comedy, which saw them cause chaos in Sin City as a bachelor party went awry.

Director Todd Phillips is bringing the buddies back together for a follow-up and he has now revealed the sequel won''t be returning to Nevada-they are shifting the action to the Far East.

'It takes place in Bangkok and LA. There's gonna be some ... surprises. The three guys are back, Mr Chow's back too,' the Daily Express quoted him as telling Empire Online.

And Phillips is promising fans a good quality follow-up: 'I'm not delusional. I know what I'm up against. I saw Meet The Fockers. But we're aiming high. It's called The Hangover Part Two, you know.'

Amy Winehouse's surprise gig at London pub

Prev     Next


Amy Winehouse recently surprised drinkers at a London pub by taking to the stage for a one-off charity performance.

The Back to Black singer was a guest at the Hawley Arms' monthly charity club night and surprised the organisers by participating in the event.

'Amy just whispered to me, 'I know I''m not on the lineup but do you mind if I play?' Obviously I wasn't going to say no and she got up and played and it was amazing,' the Daily Star quoted Organiser Izzy Lawrence as saying.

The 27-year-old belted out six songs, including Tears Dry On Their Own and a number of new tracks -- and the previously unheard material was well received.

'It's quite upbeat, quite funky, very soulful. I think this is going to be massive. If those songs are going to be on the new album, it's going to be huge,' Lawrence added.

Bruce Willis' close shave

Prev     Next


Hollywood star Bruce Willis barely escaped injury when the escalator he was riding on suddenly sped out of control.

Willis and his publicist Paul Bloch were at MoMA for Sunday night's Cinema Society screening of Red when, according to a source, the escalator sped and a scared woman happened to jump on Willis.

'The escalator taking guests down to the theater accelerated to near-carnival-ride speed. Women started screaming and one did a high-flying jump off, nearly landing on Bruce,' the New York Post quoted the source as saying.

The Sixth Sense star immediately checked that the woman was okay and appeared puzzled when the escalator then abruptly stopped.

'We had to jump, it was going so fast,' said Bloch.

Willis was joined at the screening and the OC Concept-sponsored after-party at The Lambs Club by co-stars Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker and Ernest Borgnine, 93, who said Hollywood shouldn't be so obsessed with youth.

'You don't need a young cast to make a great movie,' said Borgnine.
