If you’re as cranky as “The X Factor” judge Simon Cowell, you may have some pretty deep scowl lines to deal with in the mirror every morning. So are the rumors true that Simon went under the knife to get a little work done so he has that, you know, X Factor?
According to MetroUK.Com, Simon Cowell was reportedly sporting some plaster behind his ear as he entered the “The X Factor” Rhode Island auditions. He also avoided camera contact and was missing from the Dunkin’ Donuts run with his fellow co-judges Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and LA Reid. Perhaps he’s trying to avoid the lipo that goes along with that habit.
Later on in the day Britney, Demi and LA posed for photographs outside the auditions but Simon Cowell could not be coerced onto the red carpet.
Sources close to Simon deny any surgery. That’s what friends are for — long talks, picking you up from the airport, and denying your plastic surgery. One insider commented that the Simon looked ’10 years younger.’ Perhaps Simon just had a good night’s sleep? Or maybe he’d just yelled at an orphan, so there was an extra spring in his step.
Simon, himself, had insisted that last week’s “injury” was not a surgery, but experts in the field are saying otherwise. Lesley Reynolds Khan, co-founder of Harley Street Skin Clinic, reported to “The Mirror” that it appears that Simon had a neck lift ”in which they cut behind the ears, remove the skin and ‘re-drape it.’” Re-draped neck? That’s going to be stuck in my head as I redecorate my apartment windows. Ew. We’ll all have to wait and see this magnificent “re-draped” neck when the “The X Factor” premieres this fall on FOX.
