Why is ‘Simon Cowell Dead’ trending?

In January 2023, Simon Cowell’s former flame, singer Sinitta, was bombarded with messages saying he had died.

The couple’s romance began in 1983 and lasted for 30 years.

But a cruel prank by Twitter trolls made Sinitta fear the worst.

She said: “There is a terrible prank that Simon Cowell is dead.

“It freaked me out last night when people started texting me.

“Simon is NOT dead folks – he is very much alive and well.

“Thank god I have a sense of humor, but you really scared me.”

The false rumors continue to circulate online even though Cowell is alive and well.

In 2023 he was busy recording both Season 18 of America’s Got Talent and Season 16 of Britain’s Got Talent.

What did fans say?

Fans have slammed the death hoax trend.

One said: “Unfortunately, people start these rumors to cause fear and excitement and it’s about… Just awful.”

Another said: “No but he’s already died 8 times this year.”

And others who are clearly not fans of the music mogul have still blasted the sick hoax.

One admitted: “I mean I hate him but I would never wish death on anyone.”

And another summed it all up by tweeting: “I don’t know why y’all are all squeezing if y’all are also doing this tictok trend when death is nothing to joke about but y’all do it all the time so hypocritical really.”

Born on October 7, 1959, Cowell is a British record executive and creator of The X Factor and Got Talent franchises.

He was a judge on American Idol from 2002 to 2010 and on America’s Got Talent since 2016.

The music mogul has also received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Simon is father to a son, Eric, and stepfather to Adam, son of his fiancée Lauren Silverman.

He’s engaged to longtime girlfriend Lauren after popping the question while on a 2021 Christmas holiday in Barbados.

The marriage proposal took place at the same spot where they first met, with Eric and Adam both there as well.

A source said: “Simon and Lauren are ridiculously and disgustingly in love – unbelievably, lockdown has brought them closer than ever.

“Lauren was absolutely stunned and never in a million years would have expected Simon to ask the question.

“She burst into tears – tears of joy – and obviously said ‘yes’ straight away.
