Simon Cowell is known as a record producer and television personality. He is most famous for his blunt critical remarks as a judge on the reality television shows, 'American Idol,' 'X Factor,' and 'America's Got Talent.'


Simon Phillip Cowell was born on October 7, 1959 in London, England. His father, Eric Philip Cowell, was an estate agent developer and music industry executive. His mom, Julie Brett, was a former ballet artist and socialite. Cowell went to school at Dover College, however, he dropped out because he didn't enjoy school. He glided all through occupations, attending a few interviews for employment set up by his father. He at long last found occupation at his father's organization as a mailroom agent at EMI Music Publishing.

Relationship with Lauren Silverman and Children

In the middle of 2010, Cowell declared that he was engaged to cosmetics artist Mezghan Hussainy. The couple severed their commitment in 2012, with Cowell saying that they reached the decision that he was an unfit lover. He allegedly gave Hussainy an expensive chateau in Beverly Hills as a parting blessing. In December of that year, Cowell affirmed that he was dating actress and model Carmen Electra. The relationship just kept going a couple of months, with Cowell affirming that the two had split in mid-2013.

In spite of his previous negatives perspectives on parenthood, a source disclosed to US Weekly in July 2013 that Cowell was expecting his first child with Lauren Silverman, spouse of his dear companion Andrew Silverman. After the Silvermans separated in 2013, Cowell eventually affirmed that Lauren was pregnant with his baby who was born the next year.

Career and Net Worth

In 2001 Cowell collaborated with Simon Fuller to create a show in which the judges pick Britain's next huge music performance star. The show, Pop Idol, appeared in the UK and guaranteed a BMG record deal to the champ. With Cowell as a judge famous for decreasing hopefuls to tears, the show was a TV achievement, drawing more than 10,000 would-be stars to try out for the show.

The American rendition, American Idol, appeared in 2002, with Cowell making tough decisions alongside singer Paula Abdul and producer Randy Jackson. The show attracted a record number of watchers for Fox. It ended up developing and delivering pop stars such as Kelly Clarkson (2002), Ruben Studdard (2003), Fantasia Barrino (2004), Jennifer Hudson (2004), Carrie Underwood (2005), Taylor Hicks (2006), Jordin Sparks (2007) and David Cook (2008).
