Simon Cowell to axe Sharon Osbourne for 'scathing personal attack'

   Apr 20, 7:09 pm

London, Apr 20 (ANI): Simon Cowell plans to sack Sharon Osbourne from 'America's Got Talent' as he feels betrayed after she launched a blazing attack on him, his womanising and his jibes at fellow TV show judges.

According to sources close to the 52-year-old insists he "now knows who his real friends are" after a week of hell and will axe Osbourne following her outburst against him.

Osbourne told the Mirror that the music mogul was once seeing three women at the same time - fiance Mezhgan Hussainy, model Jasmine Leonard and make-up artist Julia Carta.

She then went on US TV and described Cowell as someone with "small penis syndrome", adding he would "probably fire me now".

"Simon doesn't want anything to do with Sharon ever again," the Mirror quoted a source as saying.

"He thought he could rely on her to be supportive when the chips were down.

"She has come out with all kinds of accusations and the new series of American's Got Talent will be her last.

"Simon cannot have people working on his show who he does not trust," the source added.

Wounded Cowelll had shown the strain of -sleepless nights as he stepped out for the first time since the sordid revelations about his love life began.

The normally immaculate looking TV star appeared tired, unkempt and had a cut above his left eye as he took a mystery woman for a late night dinner at a Chinese restaurant.

Onlookers were shocked because he is usually meticulous about how he looks, even spending thousands of pounds on Botox, dying his hair, waxing his chest hair and wearing face creams.

He was seen with the mystery woman leaving Mr Chow's -restaurant in London's upmarket Knightsbridge.

Earlier he had taken her to a concert by his classical band Il Divo at the Royal Albert Hall and was then pictured heading towards his West London mansion.

Cowell's "rough" look came after he was shaken by the huge -backlash against him over -revelations in the controversial biography 'Sweet Revenge' - which he admits he co-operated with.

Dannii Minogue was furious that he revealed he had "a few bonks" with her and Cheryl Cole was upset he branded her a "toy".

He also slammed Gary Barlow, saying he was "stiff" and "too scripted" when he began on The X Factor panel, and at one point he even considered sacking the Take That star.

Cowell told pals he was "at his lowest ebb" after Tom Bower's book extracts began being published.

He has been trying to edit an episode of Britain's Got Talent amid allegations about his love life all week and told friends he "just woke up" with a cut above his eye.

But the mogul, who -regularly uses Botox and vitamin injections to stay young-looking, appeared shabby while seeming to have a large lump around his Adam's apple.

"I can assure you I feel absolutely fine and I'm focussing on Britain's Got Talent," Cowell said on Thursday night. (ANI)
