Parachute singer Cheryl Cole is reportedly flying her close friends and family out to Los Angeles for her 30th birthday party, which is believed to be costing a whopping £50,000 (€58,468).

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, a source said: "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."

The source continued: ''So, along with Tre [Holloway, boyfriend] 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.''

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.''

Cole - whose birthday is this Sunday (30.06.13) - was spotted jetting out to Los Angeles on Friday night (28.06.13).
