Four weddings and a paycut for Simon Cowell

Tuesday April 20, 2010

Clearly revelling in her new role as mother-of-the-groom, Simon Cowell's mum Julie has revealed her music mogul son is planning a massive four weddings.

"My mum is over in LA sorting out the lovebirds and coming back hopefully with a wedding date," Simon's brother Tony Cowell said on Monday.

"Mum's final words to me before she flew off to LA were: 'Last year he said he was never, never, never going to get married, this year he's getting married four times'." 

Simon and Mezhgan have apparently set their sights on tying the knot in Brighton, Los Angeles, Hollywood and on a luxury yacht in Barbados.

Meanwhile, Simon's three-year golden handcuffs deal with ITV has come to an end.

In talks to sign a new deal with the broadcaster this week, it seems noble Simon is not asking for an annual salary increase this year.

"Simon is not getting a pay rise," a source says.

"He is more concerned about the budget being raised for the X Factor to make sure it returns bigger and better."
