Simon’s management firm responded to the recent allegations that he has slept with men.
Former X-Factor judge and N Dubz singer Tulisa went on trial last week, accused of attempting to set up a drug deal with undercover Sun on Sunday journalist Mazher Mahmood. Southwark Crown Court heard that Tulisa’s manager Gareth Varey had an exchange with Mahmood, who posed as a film producing Sheik, during which Varey said he knew men who had slept with music producer Cowell. In a secret recording, Mahmood asked Varey whether Cowell was gay, to which he responded “yes”.
Cowell’s management had this to say: “Simon was referred to during the trial without forewarning, resulting in widespread media coverage of untrue claims regarding his private life. “In 2014 the question of whether someone is or is not gay is antiquated. (As it happens he isn’t, though if he were, he would simply have said so). “However, the issue was the false suggestion made by Mr Varey that Simon – who is renowned for his honesty and candidness – had thus not been truthful in the public arena and this is what we have been obliged to clarify.”
In 2014 the question of whether someone is or is not gay is antiquated” that statement could not be better said…. Who cares!
