Simon Cowell spends big on security

Nov 9 2012, 3:06am CST | by

Simon Cowell has splashed out £100,000 boosting security at his London home after an intruder broke in earlier this year.

Simon Cowell has spent £100,000 turning his home into a ''fortress''.
The music mogul has splashed out the huge sum improving security on his London house after a fan was able to break in and hide in his wardrobe earlier this year.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Simon's a perfectionist about everything and his security renovations were so extensive he's had to put in for planning permission to get them done.
''He basically wants to transform his London home into a fortress.''
Simon previously admitted he had to hide from Leanne Zaloumis - who was reportedly found in the bathroom with half a brick above her head and her hands drenched in blood - when she broke in during March.
He said: ''I ended up hiding in one of my wardrobe closets until the police found her. That was a little spooky.''
After hearing a ''loud bang'' when the intruder crashed through the window when he was watching television in his home, Simon alerted his staff, who in turn called the cops and sent a squad of armed officers to the property.
Zaloumis was then found hiding on a shelf seven feet off the ground in a walk-in wardrobe.
The intruder appeared in court in August to be sentenced for the break-in.
She was handed a 12-month community order with a mental health requirement.
She has also been ordered to stay away from Simon under a restraining order, while she must also wear an electronic tag and adhere to a strict curfew.

Simon Cowell is Just So Very Disappointing

Oct 14 2014 1:30pm CDT | Source: Fish Wrapper

Look, if we're being honest, Simon Cowell is kind of a gross person. He's always seemed kind of sleazy on all his shows, with his inappropriately deep v-necks and, of course, his unnecessary meanness, and when he impregnated his friend's wife, well, that was kind of a tipoff, too. But during this new interview Simon did, in which he talked about his little baby son, he really just knocked that grossness out of the park:"I'm ...

The Girls of Fifth Harmony Bikini Show Off Poolside in Rio

I'm going to be straight with you. I don't watch the X-Factor. The last all-girl band I can name for you is the 16th century Celtic ladies choral ensemble. And I'm not going to take the time to learn each of these girls names in Fifth Harmony. Not because I don't care, but because more proudly so, I'm super lazy and will wait another six months to see if Simon Cowell has grown them into ...
