Kelly Brook, the chick Simon Cowell fired from reality competition show Britain's Got Talent, will walk away with her full pay, even though she was given the boot only six days into her gig.
A show insider said, “It seems Cowell is embarrassed by the whole affair and wants it to go away, hence why he’s giving Kelly the cash.”
Officially, the show insists a fourth judge alongside Cowell and the other two didn't work.
It supposedly messed up the flow.
Other sources have also claimed that bosses knew a fourth judge wouldn't work and unsuccessfully tried to talk Simon out of hiring Kelly.
$279K would make our hurt feelings go away!
