Sounds like Britney Spears wasn’t the ONLY X Factor judge headed for a breakdown!
While it was previously reported that on the first day of filming for season two, Brit Brit had a panic attack, it seems Simon Cowell just about cracked as well!
Reportedly, author Tom Bower recently added some new chapters to his Cowell biography, Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life Of Simon Cowell, detailing the XF head honcho’s stressful summer!
A new excerpt reads that Simon said:
“I don’t want any more tablets and pills. I’m cutting out the lot, including cigarettes. I desperately need peace. I’m craving normality. I’ve got to work out my demons and come out of it.”
Cray cray! That doesn’t sound healthy!
Supposedly, Simon also told XF staff during auditions that he was becoming a “weird vampire” and was on the verge of a breakdown!
Dayum! Whatever Simon was dealing with at the time, we’re glad he seems to have recovered!
Now, let’s get back to getting pumped about Wednesday’s premiere, shall we?!
