Simon Cowell Getting SUED By X-Factor Auditioners!

simon cowell getting sued

Look on the bright side, Simon! At least your new show is getting lots of attention! LOLz.

86-year-old X-Factor auditioner Hyman Marks, his 54-year-old son Stephen, and his 78-year-old wife Helen are suing both Simon Cowell and Fox!

Hyman and son Stephen were a father/son duo that made it "through multiple rounds of auditions in Miami," but couldn't get further because Hyman was too exhausted for his performance. He claims that he and his son were "made to film a segment numerous times, in which they were made to walk from a car into Miami's Bank United Center while a camera filmed multiple takes."

Hyman believes that the 96-degree-heat as well as his son's asthma caused the duo to be unable to perform up-to-par during their audition after they filmed the segment, and they say that Simon voted "no" on them as a result.

The suit claims negligence, as well as fraudulence of representation, and mental anguish. Hyman and his family want a total of $3,000,000 OR the opportunity to audition once again.

Even if they WERE given another audition, we think it'd be pret-ty difficult for Simon to get too enthusiastic about these two after all of this…unless he gives them a "yes" just to avoid legal action, and then just kicks them out soon after the competition begins.

What do U think will happen here? Will this lawsuit continue, or will the Hyman duo get a second chance?

    every retard who goes on this piece of trash car crash show, which is a carbon copy of every other "talent" show currently taking over TV, deserves a painful death! Not a law suit. peace.

    I was at the audition of these two. Hyman was not bad, but not good enough to move forward and his son was HORRIBLE!!! The auditoin was not taken seriously and easily voted no.

    Some people need to get a fucking life. They'd sue the sun for overheating them if they could.

    It seems like an unfortunate raw deal, considering the age of his father. I don't know that it's sue-worthy, though. If they couldn't handle the rigors of the pre-winners, then they probably wouldn't be able to handle the rigors expected if they actually won the thing. Life has limitations, and age is one, no matter how great their disappointment. Simon's not heartless, and could arrange something extra for them if this moved him.

    Here's an idea, go back to your retirement home.
