Simon Cowell may have butted heads with a few people on “The X Factor,” but it’s his random stalker that he needs to take a chill pill. Her sentence was handed down today, will it be time in the slammer for her?
Four months ago, Leanne Zaloumis broke into Simon Cowell’s home and hid on a shelf in his wardrobe, waiting with a brick. Someone hadn’t told her that the days of clubbing someone over the head and dragging them back to your cave were long over. The star was in his home watching TV at the time when he heard a ‘loud bang’ coming from his bathroom. Zaloumis was taken into police custody after being discovered.
Today justice was served and Leanne Zaloumis will be serving 12 months of community service with a mental health requirement. She is banned from contacting Simon Cowell indefinitely and was also handed a restraining order that will keep her inside from 7pm to 7am and saddle Leanne Zaloumis with an electronic tag to track her movements.
Simon Cowell was not present at the hearing in the UK because he is in the United States working on “The X Factor.” Cowell reportedly will not travel between the U.S. and his native England while he’s shooting his show because he feels like jet lag wreaks havoc on his looks. A source told The Sun newspaper that ”Simon hates the way his face looks when he’s jet-lagged and that’s the real reason he won’t be back” to the UK for the sentencing.
