SIMON Cowell is one of the biggest music moguls in the world, so rumors of his death are sure to spread.

A bizarre death hoax has sent “Simon Cowell dead” viral online. Here’s how it unfolded.

Why is ‘Simon Cowell dead’ trending?

In January 2023, Simon Cowell’s former flame, the singer Sinitta, was bombarded with messages saying that he had died.

The pair’s romance began in 1983 and continued on-off for 30 years.

But a cruel prank by Twitter trolls left Sinitta fearing the worst.

She said: “There is a terrible prank that Simon Cowell is dead.

“It freaked me out last night when people started messaging me.

“Simon is NOT dead, people – he’s very much alive and well.

“Thank God I have a sense of humour but you really scared me.”

The false rumors have continued to spread online, despite the fact that Cowell is alive and well.

In 2023, he has been busy recording both America’s Got Talent season 18, as well as Britain’s Got Talent season 16.

What have fans said?

Fans have slammed the death hoax trend.

One said: “Sadly people start these rumours to cause anguish and upset, and it spirals…. Just horrible.”

Another said: “noo but he already died 8 times this year.”

And others, who are clearly not fans of the music mogul, still blasted the sick hoax.

One admitted: “i mean i hate him to but i’d never wish for someone’s death. ever.”

And another summed it all up by posting on Twitter: “I don’t know why y’all press when y’all are doing this tictok trend too when death isn’t something to joke about yet y’all do it all the time so hypocritical really.”

He was a judge on American Idol from 2002 until 2010 and on America’s Got Talent since 2016.

In both 2004 and 2010 Cowell was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world.

Simon is dad to one son, Eric, and is stepdad to his fiancee Lauren Silverman’s son Adam.

He is engaged to long-term girlfriend Lauren after popping the question on a Christmas 2021 holiday to Barbados.

The proposal took place in the same spot where they first met, with Eric and Adam both there as well.

A source said: “Simon and Lauren are ridiculously, nauseatingly in love – incredibly, lockdown brought them closer than ever.

“Lauren was absolutely stunned and never in a million years expected Simon to pop the question.

“She burst into tears – happy tears – and obviously said ‘yes’ straight away.

“It was important to Simon that the kids were there too, as he adores them both and the family they’ve become.”

Cowell is thought to have a net worth of approximately $600million.
