Simon Cowell’s representatives have released a statement, in response to the claims surrounding his sexuality at Tulisa Contostavlos’ trial last week.
Last Thursday a recording of Tulisa’s personal assistant, Gareth Varey, had suggested that Cowell was gay.
And Simon of course, did not react well to this.
Cowell’s lawyers have released a statement on his behalf about the claims.
“Simon was referred to during the trial without forewarning, resulting in widespread media coverage of untrue claims regarding his private life. In 2014 the question of whether someone is or is not gay is antiquated. (As it happens he isn’t, though if he were, he would simply have said so). However, the issue was the false suggestion made by Mr Varey that Simon – who is renowned for his honesty and candidness – had thus not been truthful in the public arena and this is what we have been obliged to clarify.”
