Simon Cowell had a very frightening experience Saturday night in his West London home. A woman by the name of Leanne Zaloumis broke into his home Saturday night while Simon Cowell was watching TV in his living room. The woman is believed to have wandered around his home, even lying on his bed! She broke into the home through a downstairs window.
The woman finally managed to find her way into his bathroom and that is when Simon Cowell heard a “loud bang” coming from upstairs. So, he rushed up to the bathroom and found Zaloumis holding a brick in her hand. Luckily, Cowell’s security team was able to detain the woman until cops arrived. She has been charged with aggravated burglary after appearing in court on Monday. She is due back in court on June 12.
“It was an absolutely terrifying experience. Seeing this woman standing there in my house was like something out of a horror movie. It was frightening but I’m going to take it as a warning. In some ways I’ve been lucky. You have to look on the positive side because it could have been a whole lot worse. I now know that I need to improve my security. She could have had a gun.” Simon Cowell told a friend.
Simon is right. It could have been worse; it could have been Paula Abdul instead! That would have truly been terrifying.
