A woman described as an “overzealous fan” armed with a brick reportedly broke into Simon Cowell’s mansion in London. She wandered around his house, used his bathroom and even laid on his bed while Simon was watching TV in his lounge. She was eventually discovered by someone on his staff. Cowell plans to update his security system and says the terrifying experience “was like something out of a horror movie.” 

- Actually he was watching a horror movie at the time… no wait, that was a re-run of William Hung on American Idol. 

- Turns out the intruder was actually Paula Abdul who mistook his house for a really big liquor store. 

- When police arrived, Simon said their arrest technique “was dreadful and pitchy.”
