Cheryl Cole has hit back at Cher Lloyd after her protegee told a radio show she would only perform with the former X Factor judge provided she sung live.
When asked about a possible collaboration in an interview, Cher said: "Maybe, if she'd sing live with me."
When the show's presenter pressed the former reality show contestant about if she was referring to autotune, Cher replied: "What, oh no? Never, never ever!"
Cheryl subsequently posted a warning on Twitter: "Be Careful who you kick on your way up .. They kick you twice as hard on your way back down.. #unappreciationisugly"
Cher recently revealed she hasn't kept in touch with the her former mentor, despite their seemingly close relationship on the 2009 edition of the X Factor.
