And it's not exactly a small sum of money either.

The Girls Aloud singer reportedly owes bodyguard Craig Balkam £70,000 in services.

According to the Sun, a pal of Craig told the paper that Cheryl Cole has ignored his requests of payment.

They said:  "Craig would have taken a bullet for that girl. He can't believe what's happened."

Craig is now apparently seeking legal advice and is livid with the singer given her wealth.

He apparently said: "She's got a lot of nerve — she's ignored all my requests for payment.

"She has around £30 million in the bank and could pay me tomorrow with a click of her fingers, but is refusing to."

The money Cheryl owes Craig is for the three months he spent by her side while in the US during her employment on the US X Factor.

Ironically, Cheryl Cole is currently suing the show for unpaid wages.

Pot, kettle, black anyone?

Cheryl is suing the Simon Cowell owned show a huge £1.4m for unpaid services and additional costs.

So perhaps her bodyguard's bill comes under the title 'additional costs'.

If this is the case, Craig could be waiting a while.
