Are Cheryl and Louis friends again?

Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh appear to have called a truce after their very public war of words.

X Factor judge and music mogul Louis had claimed Cheryl was a “clothes horse” who needed singing lessons after the star accused him of taking cheques despite having “zero involvement” during the beginning of Girls Aloud’s career.

But after contacting Louis to sort the issue out, Cheryl tweeted: “Spoke to Mr Walsh… And he asked me to post his text as he does not have Twitter…”

The text read: “Hello Cheryl! Princess of pop and biggest hair in the land! Let’s call a truce to all this stuff in the press and things that happened 10 years ago! We always had fun on The X Factor and I always defended you against the Wicked Cowell!

“We used to have great fun and life is too short you and I always said I’m looking forward to your new music and think you should come on The X Factor live show to perform!”

Cheryl then wrote: “And that’s all folks.”

The Promise This singer had recently told Marie Claire magazine about starting out with Girls Aloud: “We worked like crazy in those days. We didn’t stop for breath. We never had management. Louis claimed to be our manager but he never did it.”

She said: “I talk to him because now I get that business is business and that’s how he runs his but he never chose a hit. Who chose them? Us.”

Louis then hit back, telling Heat magazine: “What is she peddling this time? Eyelashes or hair spray? It’s definitely not her music.

“At least I am still on The X Factor and happy to be there. I’m a much better manager than she is a singer,” he said.
