That night, a spokesperson for the music mogul's family released this statement:

"Today our beloved mum Julie passed away. Anyone who had met her would know what a truly special and kind lady she was. We are heartbroken and will miss her terribly, but she is now at peace."

The spokesperson also continued that the family is hoping for some privacy during this trying time, saying:

"We would like to thank the media for kindly respecting Julie's privacy throughout and we politely request continued privacy for the entire family at this particularly difficult time."

And part of this privacy means putting a pause of X Factor UK. A spokesperson for Simon's production company, Syco Entertainment, revealed that Monday's Manchester auditions have been canceled:

"They were due to start today and carry on into Tuesday and Wednesday. Today's have been cancelled and we have not made any decisions beyond that."

The 55-year-old has not yet spoken publicly about his mother's death, but his older brother Tony took to Twitter to share some thoughts about his mother's passing:

One Direction's Niall Horan also used the status sharing site to send positive thoughts to Simon and his family, writing:

We can't imagine what the Cowell clan is feeling right now, and our hearts go out to everyone affected by this devastating loss.
