(NEW YORK) — Simon Cowell might be a great judge of musical talent, but if a story in the new book Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell is to be believed, he’s not a great judge of character.
The U.K. Sun, quoting from the upcoming juicy book, reports that The X Factor creator and former American Idol judge got robbed by a hotel hookup after a “drunken one-night stand.”
Cowell reportedly “smuggled” a girl he met at a nightclub back to his hotel, but by the next morning, he awoke to find his gal pal gone — along with his money and laptop “full of show secrets.”
According to the book’s author, Tom Bower, Simon’s people worked with hotel security and the police, and eventually caught the sticky-fingered suspect.
