Daily Dish: Simon Cowell’s $1.6 Million Blowout Birthday Bash
Simon Cowell just signed a $100 million a year deal to produce the American version of ‘X Factor’, making it all the more responsible for the judge to throw himself an insanely pricey 50th b-day party
Over the weekend Simon Cowell partied with more than 300 friends, A-list celebs, prominent musicians and former girlfriends at Wrotham Park near London.
The $1.6 million party included a gigantic image of Simon’s face that was projected on an outside wall of a mansion, waiters sporting masks of the Idol tycoon’s mug, and Simon soup (seriously, the letters in the chicken noodle soup spelled out “Simon”!).
Among the guests were Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, David Hasselhoff, Kate Moss, Olivia Newton-John, and the birthday boy’s mom Julie Cowell.
Earth, Wind & Fire performed, as well as a burlesque dance troupe, as Simon spent the evening surrounded by gorgeous women — one of which was his alleged GF, makeup artist Mezghan Hussainy.
Unfortunately ex Idol coworker Paula Abdul was unable to put in an appearance as she had come down with the flu.
But Paula or no Paula, we bet Simon had a heck of a time! (The New York Post)
