This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Naughty, naughty girls!!!
Simon Cowell turned 54 today, but we're thinking he's already regretting it!
The music icon & soon to be father didn't wake up to a glorious b-day hummer from Lauren Silverman or even breakfast in bed. No, the only present Simon got this morning was several rolls of unraveled toilet paper from the five feisty femmes of Fifth Harmony!!
It's true, they TP-ed the shiz out of Simon's El Lay mega-mansion!!!!
Pegged as America's XX-chromosomed answer to One Direction, the girl band is apparently just as mischievous!
Ha!!! The funny part is Simon already has a reputation for being a crotchety old man, but this is one time when he actually should have been standing on the front porch yelling "get off my lawn!"
We're sure the prank was all in good fun, though!!!
Happy birthday, Simon — and don't forget to wipe front to back when you clean up the mess!
