Robbers break into Simon Cowell’s home while he is inside

Simon Cowell and his family were at home when burglars made a break-in at around 2am Friday.

The X Factor judge is reported to have been startled by the burglars in the early hours of the morning. Police were called and rushed to his home in Holland Park, London. Cowell was said to be asleep at the time of the incident. His girlfriend and son Eric were also at home during the break-in.

The Mirror reports the couple “were traumatised” by the incident. Jewellery and cash was stolen in the raid before police could get to the scene after they were called by a security guard.

A spokesman for the MET Police confirmed that they were called on Friday morning in response to a burglary in progress. Friends of Cowell have revealed to The Independent that he was shaken but can cope with losing possessions. No one was hurt in the incident which was the most important.

It is the second break-in at Cowell’s home in 3 years, with the first reported in 2012 when a stalker broke in while Cowell was watching TV.
