Nick Cannon Sent Simon Cowell Champagne After 'AGT' Exit
In fact, the former America’s Got Talent host sent him a bottle of champagne after leaving the show due to disagreements with NBC.
“I didn’t know much about [Cannon’s exit] — maybe I should have known more about it,” Simon recently told ET. “I mean, look, the point is that he was the first to send me a bottle of Champagne on the first day … which interestingly, he didn’t send to the others.”
He added, “I didn’t know that Nick wasn’t going to be on the show until about two or three weeks before we started filming, and no one told me about this stuff. Anyway, it happened. I spoke to him, I thought he was going to come back but he wasn’t — then he was, wasn’t — and then in the end, we decided to start filming without him. After one day, we get a phone call — Tyra Banks wants to meet. I thought I was being [pranked] to be honest with you.”
