Cowell’s B’day bash with ex-flames

LOS ANGELES: Music mogul Simon Cowell will be confronted by 17 ex-girlfriends at a surprise 50th birthday party in London this weekend. Simon Cowell will come face-to-face with 17 ex-girlfriends at his surprise 50th birthday party.

The X Factor judge will see his former lovers at a lavish bash in west London this weekend — hosted by his ex-girlfriend Jackie St Claire — to celebrate

the landmark birthday, even though Simon doesn’t turn 50 until October 7.

A friend told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper, “The champagne will be flowing and judging by the guest list, Simon will need it. Incredibly, 17 of his ex-girlfriends, dates and former flings will be there. For most men this would be an utter nightmare, but if anyone can pull it off, Simon can.”

The source continued, “If truth be told, he’s actually on exceptionally good terms with nearly all of them so there shouldn’t be any crying or embarrassing tantrums — either from the girls or Simon. It is certainly going to be an extra special night for Simon. He has no idea it’s a party for him. Jackie told him it was her birthday and to make sure he was on time for once. He has even bought her an outrageous present — he really has no idea what is being planned.” Jackie has reportedly hired Britain’s Got Talent

comedy dance act Stavros Flatley to help Simon enjoy the evening.
