Idol Talk: Simon Gone (Officially)

January 15, 2010 by  

ReportSimonCowellYes, NOW it’s official…Simon Cowell is off American Idol after this season.  But that isn’t the most interesting part of this report.

Its been reported that Cowell was offered between $100-144 million dollars to stay on the show for another amount of years, according to numerous sources. Now that’s an astounding amount of money for someone now considered to have “star power” except in an arena like this. He reportedly turned down the offer to migrate to his creation, X-Factor, that originally aired in the UK, to the states.

Now that’s truly knowing what you want to do, and going for it. Fox (for their part) denied the offer was that much, but declined further comment, fueling the speculation even further. We reported the departure of Simon Cowell awhile back, now its pretty much a done deal.
