There was a huge speculation several years ago that Simon Cowell was a closeted gay man and he was waiting to come out after his conservative mother dies. This was pre-baby scandal, of course, but it was as equally as unbelievable then as it is now.
X-Factor Judge Simon Cowell, 55, has cancelled the first round of X-Factor auditions in Manchester after his beloved mother Julie, 89, passed away. Cowell was said to be extremely close to his mother and is said to be devastated by her death.
Needn’t fret, X-Factor hopefuls. The show’s auditions will be rescheduled and it will not affect the date the programme airs.
