The X Factor show boss and judge Simon Cowell has become the victim of a burglary at his London home when a woman broke in over the weekend. Just hours before Britain’s Got Talent returned to televisions, Simon’s house was burglarized.
Simon was said to be home when the woman, Leanna Zaloumis, broke in. She has since been charged with aggravated burglary and is set to appear in court this morning. The Catford, South East London resident broke into Simon’s West Kensington home just after 10:30 PM on Saturday.
When officers arrived, they found that the woman had forced her way onto the property — with the music mogul home at the time of the break in. We are unsure as to who alerted the authorities by calling 999.
Reportedly, nothing has been removed from the property and Scotland Yard has refused to comment. There has been no comment as to whether or not a weapon was recovered at the scene.
Stay tuned as further details are made available. Simon has refused to comment on the break in and has referred it to the authorities for investigation.
