Simon Cowell Reacts to 'American Idol' Cancellation News

Simon Cowell has just released a statement after American Idol was cancelled.

“We had a blast! Me, Paula [Abdul], Randy [Jackson], Ryan [Seacrest] – and not forgetting Brian. Thanks to the fans we were able to make some great shows and found some amazing artists. Fox took a risk on a brand new show and I want to thank them for giving us the opportunity. They really were great times,” the former American Idol judge shared to People.

    Simon Cowell has no credibility after having sex and impregnating his “good” friend’s wife! I hope karma bites Simon and Lauren in the butt! Lauren is an uneducated gold digger who has never worked and lives off rich men! Lauren’s older son was left in NY for his father and the nanny to raise him. Simon is a poor judge at anything now!!
