London, March 14 (IANS) British singer Cheryl Cole, who is going through a rough patch after footballer husband Ashley cheated on her, has decided to shift base to the US.

'Simon also loves that Cheryl isn't afraid to stand up to him on the show. He knows their banter will be a massive hit with American audiences.
'Not only does he want her on American 'X Factor', he wants her to sit next to him,' the source added.
Cowell has been helping Cheryl launch her solo career in the US. He has also been counselling her through her marriage crisis.
