Is Simon Cowell really gay?
This week a court in London heard that X Factor UK judge Simon Cowell is secretly gay!
This is according to the manager of former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos who claims he knows Simon Cowell is gay because he knows people who had slept with him.
According to reports in the Metro and Telegraph, Gareth Varey made the claim in a conversation recorded in a meeting with ‘fake sheikh’ Mazher Mahmood. The revelation was made when an undercover reporter invited Gareth to his hotel suite where the reporter was heard asking Gareth if X Factor judge Simon Cowell was gay.
Gareth replied: "Yes."
The reporter asked: "Have you slept with him?", to which the manager answered: "No."
Asked why, he answered: "I will when I make my move."
The reporter then asked : "How do you know he's gay?" , to which came the reply: "I know people who have."
Simon's spokesperson said: ‘We are bound by contempt of court rules so cannot respond to these claims in the manner we wish to. We are speaking to the Attorney General’s office – and we intend to make a statement in court as soon as possible".
The claims are quite strange considering Simon is known as quite a ladies man and has recently become a father for the first time. His girlfriend Lauren Silverman gave birth to their son, Eric, in February.
