After a rift that has gone on since 1993, Simon Cowell has had a reunion with his 64 year old half-brother, Michael, who is 13 years older than him.
Here's what Michael had to say about reuniting with Simon:
"I am really looking forward to seeing my brother again and having some time to talk properly. It is really exciting we can have this meeting and that he has set time aside for me."
"We have just recently got back in regular touch over the phone but I don't want to go into details. The only people who know the full story are Simon and I."
More from Michael:
"When I see him on TV I still can't believe it. Simon is great fun and I'd like to congratulate him on his success - even though he can be a real pain in the neck!"
We hope the reunion went well! After 17 years, they must have had TONS to talk about!!!
Do U think U could reconnect with a long-lost family member after so many years?
