L.A. Reid Denies Confirming Cheryl Cole as X Factor Judge

A dubious report from UK tabloid, the Daily Mail, quoting L.A. Reid confirming UK songstress, Cheryl Cole, as a fellow X Factor US judge, has been debunked by the man himself.

Late last night, the Daily Mail claimed Reid “let slip” in an interview that Cheryl would be taking a seat next to him and Simon Cowell on the X Factor US judges panel.

“We’re gonna compete against American Idol just fine. I’m very confident. But along with Simon Cowell and Cheryl, I don’t know who the other judge is.”

The Mail reported the quote, without a source, so it comes as no surprise that Reid is now on record saying he has no idea where the quote came from.

“I don’t know where that actually came from, ‘ Reid tells Fox All Access, “but I know the judging roles have been quite a process for Simon…I support any decisions that he makes for the next two judges.”

Simon, cut us a break…make an announcement already, will ya?
