Cheryl Cole collapses during photo shoot, pulls out of ‘X Factor’
Cheryl Cole, 27, noted U.K. pop singer, collapsed during a photo shoot over the weekend and pulled out of her TV show “The X Factor.”
The singer has yet to make a splash here in the U.S., but is currently being nurtured by will.i.am.
Cole was doing the shoot for her new album.
According to OK! sources the Girls Aloud singer arrived at the north London studio looking “gaunt” and “washed out” before collapsing unconscious just minutes after the shoot began.
Cole was diagnosed with severe exhaustion and a gastroenteritis bug.
A close friend of Cole’s told a tabloid newspaper: “She should never have gone to the studio. She insisted she was fine, even though she clearly wasn’t. Her skin was pale and her lips had no color. She’s run down and tired. That’s why she ended up with the stomach virus.
“Eventually she just keeled over. It was horrible. She was only out for a few seconds but it was enough to give everyone, including Cheryl, a massive scare.”
