Cheryl Cole is worried she may have developed Tourette's Syndrome because she can't stop swearing or cursing.
Cheryl Cole can't stop swearing.
The 'Promise This' hitmaker is concerned she has developed Tourette's Syndrome - a condition where sufferers are stricken by physical and verbal tics and spontaneously shout out obscene language - because she can't keep her foul mouth under control.
She tweeted: ''Question! Can you develop turrets at age 29?? Have had a few involuntary outbursts lately?!!! (sic)''
When a fan suggested it could be the result of returning to her fellow ''crazy Geordies'' in her hometown of Newcastle upon Tyne for Girl's Aloud's tour earlier this week, she added: ''Maybe that's it!! (sic)''
Cheryl has previously admitted to sending an expletive-filled text message to Simon Cowell after she was fired from 'The X Factor' USA just days into her contract.
The 'Call my Name' hitmaker was stunned to be told by Richard Holloway, the show's executive producer, that the music mogul - who had criticised her ''big hair'' and the orange shirt and purple trousers she wore for the first day of auditions - wanted her off the programme, and she was particularly angry that her friend didn't break the news himself.
In her autobiography 'Cheryl: My Story', she wrote: ''I was furious with Simon for letting it happen like this. I believed we had a good friendship and couldn't understand why he hadn't been straight with me.
''I wrote the longest text ever. 'F**k you, f**k 'Britain's Got Talent', f**k the orange and purple outfit. F**k big hair. F**k the UK X Factor. F**k you all.
''I hate you. I understand you're a businessman, and what I've learned from this is business means more to you than friendship. I'm sad it's got like this and I wish you the best of luck, but count me out.' Simon texted back, 'Can I talk to you?' I ignored him.''
