Cowell buys land and title for Cole
Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole

Simon Cowell has bought Cheryl Cole the title of Lady for her 30th birthday.

The music mogul - who famously fell out with the former Girls Aloud singer when he sacked her from the US version of 'The X Factor' after she made just three appearances in 2011 - has purchased the brunette beauty some land in the Scottish Highlands which comes complete with the title.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Simon had the deeds for the land and the details of her new title delivered to where Cheryl was staying."

The information was sent to Cheryl in Los Angeles, California, where she saw in the milestone with her boyfriend Tre Holloway and two of her Girls Aloud bandmates, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh, on Saturday night.

Simon's generosity comes after he was accused of snubbing her birthday celebrations, and as a result the 53-year-old star took to his Twitter account to reveal he was unable to attend the event due to 'American Idol' filming commitments and insists the pair are now "close friends" again.

He wrote: "I didn't snub Cheryl's party. I just couldn't go because of my filming dates. We are close friends again and I adore her."
