It’s safe to say that Simon Cowell is among the most recognisable names in the music business. He amassed a fortune throughout the years due to his skill and acumen in business.
One Direction and Kelly Clarkson may not have become household names if not for this guy and his talent-finding reality programmes.
Before becoming a judge on Pop Idol in 2001, Simon worked as a music producer, consultant, and scout in the 1980s.
Simon took use of the show’s popularity to launch two more talent competition series that have now become massive hits throughout the world: The X Factor and Got Talent.Twice, in 2004 and 2010, he was recognised as one of the world’s 100 most important people.
The business tycoon had a gruelling couple of years. He was in two separate mishaps. After hurting his back in a fall down the stairs, he was involved in an electric scooter accident.
The singer and producer wanted to spread awareness about the risks of electric bikes after he had an accident that left him disabled and required back surgery.
A suitable crash helmet and leathers are required to ride the one I had, which was essentially a motorbike powered by electricity.
He said that “this thing was nuts.” I had no idea how potent it was until I tried it. And I must have jumped maybe 8 feet in the air before landing on my back.
Their relationship made a sensation when the public found out about it, since it had apparently begun while Lauren was still married to Andrew Silverman, who just so happened to be one of Simon’s best friends.
The couple had their first child, Eric, in 2014.Cowell told Hello Magazine, “Meeting Lauren and becoming a dad was the most fantastic thing that happened to me in my life.
“It’s challenging to raise children at my age, but the rewards are immeasurable.It’s natural to wonder, “What’s it all going to be for at the end?
” when you put in as much effort as I do. Then a person like him appears, and suddenly it’s all been worthwhile.
Simon once told The Mirror, “I don’t believe in passing on from one generation to another,” adding, “Your legacy has to be that hopefully you gave enough people an opportunity, so that they could do well, and you gave them your time, taught them what you know.”
ShutterstockSimon and Eric get along well and spend a lot of time together because of this. The elated dad claims they spend their time together watching Disney films and viewing Scooby-Doo episodes.
The best thing that’s ever happened to me is him. I just admire him, one of the judges on America’s Got Talent commented. Simon’s late father, Eric Selig Phillip Cowell, inspired the name Eric. He died away in 1999.
