Cheryl Cole is throwing herself a £50,000 birthday bash in Los Angeles.

The singer has planned an extravagant two-day fiesta to celebrate her 30th birthday this weekend, and is treating her best friends and family to an all-expenses paid trip to the US.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Cheryl's been through so much in the past few years, and she's actually really proud to reach the age of 30. She's not one of these girls to mope about her age, instead she sees it as a great chance to celebrate.

''So, along with Tre [Holloway] she's been planning this party for ages. She wanted to treat those closest to her, that's why she's paying for their flights and five-star accommodation out there.''

Aside from her dancer beau Tre, Cheryl will be joined by her former Girls Aloud bandmates Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh as well as close family members as they hit the town for a wild night out.

The insider added: ''She's got the whole weekend worked out - slap-up meals, cocktails, champagne, shots and lots of dancing. It's a chance for everyone to let their hair down and go a bit wild.''

Cheryl - whose birthday is this Sunday (30.06.13) - was spotted jetting out to LA on Friday night (28.06.13).
