Cowell Rethinks Security After Lewis Scare
The music mogul admits his cruel criticisms have upset several people who've auditioned on his TV talent shows, including American Idol, and he thinks it's only a matter of time before one of the disgruntled contestants exacts revenge on him.
And Cowell insists he had been thinking about recruiting more personnel to protect him when he heard news that a man had attacked the Bleeding Love hitmaker at a book-signing.
He tells GQ magazine, "We've all been lucky, with what we do. I've never been punched. But it's going to happen. I'm more likely to get punched than anyone."
Cowell's ex-girlfriend, Terri Seymour, was attacked in Los Angeles in May (09) when a woman wrapped her hands around the TV presenter's throat.
Janice Thibodeaux claimed she was motivated by footage of Cowell pretending to throttle his fellow American Idol judge Paula Abdul on the hit reality show, adding that she wanted to confront Seymour about her ex's behaviour.
