“American Idol” judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler have accomplished something their sharp- tongued predecessor Simon Cowell couldn’t do for four years: stem viewer losses at TV’s most-watched show.
Simon Cowell , the pop impresario known for TV shows such as “ American Idol ,” has amassed a fortune of 200 million pounds ($331 million), enough to propel him into the Top 10 of U.K. musical millionaires, the Sunday Times said.
Simon Cowell , the TV-show producer and music executive, has seen his wealth surge 38 percent to 165 million pounds ($254 million) in the last year. He jumped four slots to No. 11 in the ranking of U.K. music millionaires, according to the Sunday Times 2010 Rich List .
Max Clifford, a celebrity publicist who has represented O.J. Simpson, David Beckham and Simon Cowell, pleaded not guilty to 11 sexual offense charges involving girls as young as 15 over almost two decades.
