Cheryl Cole has reportedly been targeted by death threats from a fan of The X Factor's Gamu Nhengu.

The angry sender blamed the Girls Aloud singer for not choosing Nhengu as one of her top three and accused her of making "the biggest mistake of her life".

According to The Sun, one of the warnings said: "Every1 has a bullet for you. (sic)"

The sender, who circulated the message to phones via BlackBerry Messenger, went as far as to claim that if he could not get to Cole, he would "drop" a girl with the same name.

It continued: "I've never felt like dis over xfactor until u told gambu she is not going to the live show.

"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."

The message, apparently sent from Tottenham in North London, added: "Wat u have now done is f*** up every white girls lives who's silly mothers dat named der child cheryl. Cuz I'm just going to f***** bang drop dem and dey won't even know why."

Cole is warned not to visit the area because she would be "punched until she bleeds".

"You are a hater," it said. "You can't sing 2 save your life. So to make yourself 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 was concluded with the street name Supa Capone and the words: "Find Me."

A 25-year-old who received the message told the paper: "There was something very chilling about it - the way he said he'd never felt like that before.

"It seemed obsessional, like he was unstable. What if some poor girl is attacked just because her name is Cheryl?"

Scotland Yard and X Factor bosses are said to be investigating the message.
