Well, his Internet celeb status is certainly over...
It is OK everyone! We can all take a sigh of relief.
Simon Cowell is NOT being held hostage!!!
Some very unfunny prankster decided to waste the world's precious time by calling 911 and claiming the X Factor judge was being held hostage inside his own home and was bound by duct tape!
The FEMALE caller claimed Cowell was bound and gagged inside his own Beverly Hills mansion bathroom!
Don't do that to Simon!
But when the cops showed up they found absolutely nothing except Simon at home judging himself in the mirror, ha!
Don't be scaring us like that prank callers!!!
