X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has apparently received death threats over her axing of reality show contestant Gamu Nhengu.

One threat carried the terrifying warning: "Every1 has a bullet for you."

The sick rant accused the singer of making "the biggest mistake of her life" by ditching teenage fans' favourite Gamu from the ITV talent show.

And shockingly the sender says that, if he can't get to 27-year-old Cheryl, he will "drop" any girl he finds with the same name.

The hate-filled tirade - circulated to phones around the country via BlackBerry Messenger amid outrage over Gamu's exit - slurs Cheryl by accusing her of racism, reports the Sun.

One part reads: "I've never felt like dis over xfactor until u told gambu (sic) she is not going to the live show.

Cheryl"Dat cheryl was da biggest mistake of your life. U want to act innocent on tv like you don't know wat ur doing. But we all know how racist you are.

Wannabe ... Katie Waissel in London "Wat u have now done is f*** up every white girls lives who's silly mothers dat named der child cheryl. Cuz Im just going to f***** bang drop dem and dey won''t even know why."

Sent from Tottenham, North London, the rant tells gorgeous Cheryl - newly divorced from footballer Ashley Cole - never to visit the area, warning she would be "punched until she bleeds".

It adds: "You are a hater. You can't sing 2 save your life. So to make urself happy you want to get rid off all the good singers you know will make you look s***. Nobody wants to buy ur album."

The message - signed off with the street name Supa Capone - ends with the words "Find Me".

Both Scotland Yard and X Factor bosses yesterday said they were looking into the message, which accused Cheryl of keeping 18-year-old Gamu out of the X Factor finals last weekend as she was jealous of her talent.

Another sick demand for Cheryl's death had appeared on Facebook.

A site - entitled ''cheryl cole to die a painful death for being a T**t and blasted into space'' - was set up by poster Dan Mcmanus and had 39 members.

Its description reads: "ppl who want to kill cheryl cole for being a great big t*** and making painful music that ppl want to shoot themselves to."

The threats came amid a huge backlash over Girls Aloud star Cheryl's decision to axe talented Gamu and instead put through waif-like Cher Lloyd and Katie Waissel, 24, who both mucked up in judges' house auditions.
