He was once made a fool of by the media for his ridiculously high-waisted trousers and serious persona, as well as more recently his low cut suits and tight tops which reveal his chest to egregious levels.
And now Simon Cowell is being urged to get a makeover by no other than his X Factor counterparts Demi Lovato and Britney Spears, who think the media mogul is a little old fashioned in his ways.
“It’s a real blow to Simon because he brought Demi and Britney onto the show to give it a younger feel, and now they’re telling him that he’s the dinosaur,” a source said.
“Simon was already having a bit of a midlife crisis, so knowing people think he’s wearing mom jeans really blindsided him.''
The inside source also revealed that the makeover bullying has upset Simon into thinking he's not God's gift anymore, admitting that he thinks of himself as one of the world's most eligible bachelors.
“He’s always been proud of his dressed-down sense of style. He loves the jeans and T-shirt look or unbuttoning his collared shirts to show his chest,'' they continued.
They added: “But fellow judge L.A. Reid is a sharp dresser and the girls always wear the latest trends. Simon doesn’t want to be thought of as a granddad!''
“It was tough for him, especially since he’s always considered himself one of the world’s most eligible bachelors. It really bruised his king-size ego. Now the girls are pushing him to change it up, and he’s promised to try a few new looks.”
