It’s been a difficult few years for Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell has to be one of the most famous names in the music industry. Thanks to his talent and business sense, he earned millions over the years.If it hadn’t been for this man and his reality shows that involve discovering musical talents, we probably would have never heard of One Direction or Kelly Clarkson.Simon began his career as a music producer, consultant and talent scout during the 1980s, but rose to public fame in 2001 as a judge on Pop Idol. The show was a huge success, so Simon went a step further and created The X Factor and Got Talent franchises, which are extremely popular in a large number of countries around the world.

He was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world twice, in 2004 and 2010.

During the few years, the business magnate went through a lot. He suffered two accidents. First he fell down the stairs and then seriously injured his back after an accident with an electric scooter.
After the scare that left him injured and forced him to undergo back surgery, the musician and producer tried to warn of the dangers of electric bicycles. “The one I had was basically a motorcycle with an electric motor and you have to wear a suitable protective helmet, leather clothing. This was crazy,” he said. “I didn’t know how powerful it was before I got on it. And I flew about 6 to 8 feet in the air and landed on my spine.”

As far as his personal life is concerned, what we know about this incredible man of many talents is that he is a great supporter of different charities and a great animal lover. Since 2013, Simon has been with his long-time girlfriend and mother of his son, Lauren Silverman. When the world found out that the two were dating, the news caused a stir because they allegedly began an affair while Lauren was still married to her ex-husband Andrew Silverman, who happened to be one of Simon’s closest friends.

In 2014, the couple welcomed their son Eric.
“Meeting Lauren and becoming a father was the greatest thing that has ever happened to me,” Cowell told Hello magazine.

“It’s hard when you have kids my age, but it’s amazing. When you work as hard as I do, you think, ‘What will it all be for in the end?’ Then someone like him comes along and it’s all worth it.”

Thanks to his shows and his business sense, Simon has earned $600 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. However, it seems that Eric will not inherit his father’s fortune. You may be wondering why. Well, that’s because Simon thinks his son should make his fortune on his behalf.

“I’m going to leave my money to someone. Probably a charity: kids and dogs. “I don’t believe in passing from one generation to another,” Simon told The Mirror, adding: “Your legacy has to be that, hopefully, you gave enough people a chance to do well, and you gave them your time. You taught them what you know.”

Simon and Eric have a lot in common and enjoy spending a lot of time together. According to the proud father, they both love Scooby Doo and enjoy watching Disney movies together.“He is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. “I love him,” the America’s Got Talent judge said.Eric is named after Simon’s father, Eric Selig Phillip Cowell, who passed away in 1999.
