Perhaps she wanted to steal one of Simon Cowell's trademark black t-shirts or something. Whatever the case, Simon, best known for his work on hit shows like 'X Factor,' 'Britain's Got Talent,' and 'American Idol' was a victim of a break-in as he sat on his couch at home.
Yep, that's right, a woman tried to bust into Simon Cowell's place in London last weekend. Now the chick, Leanna Zaloumis, is set to face a judge after she tried to rob the 'X Factor' judge.
Can you imagine, sitting there when you hear a noise coming from the upstairs bathroom at 10:30 on a Saturday night? This is exactly what Cowell was confronted with.
According to reports, Simon was pretty shaken-up by the woman who busted into his place using a brick to smash a bathroom window.
It was a very frightening experience for Simon, who told me it was like something from a horror movie. He was shaken up. Strange as it might seem he feels lucky, because it could have been a gun or a knife in her hand.
Still, it is unclear what exactly the intruder was looking for. How much do used Simon Cowell T-shirts go on the open market anyway?
Lucky for Simon, he's okay, there is minimal property damage and the perp was captured.
