Cowell: Ruben's Weight Is Out Of Control

British music mogul SIMON COWELL has branded AMERICAN IDOL victor RUBEN STUDDARD's weight "out of control".

The rotund singer claimed the top title in last year's (03) competition, but Cowell, who judges the show with PAULA ABDUL and RANDY JACKSON, believes Studdard's giant frame needs to be dealt with as a matter of urgency.

He says, "He's bigger than he ever was. Under any circumstances, to carry that kind of weight is bad for you. But couple that with the schedule and stress this guy is under... Ruben's weight is literally out of control.

"If somebody doesn't sit him down properly, then they're not doing their job.

"You could argue that it is or it isn't my job. And he'll probably tell me where to go. But I don't care."
