The X Factor boss was forced to call the police during the scary altercation

He may be one of the most powerful men in TV, but this week Simon Cowell faced a VERY scary run-in when his neighbour reportedly threatened him with a golf club.

According to reports, the star’s neighbour got riled up over a parking issue on Tuesday night as The X Factor boss was preparing to leave his mansion for a Christmas party.

As the row erupted in the music mogul’s cul-de-sac in Kensington, the neighbour reportedly shouted that he was going to “smash up” the luxury cars, before yelling, “I’ve had enough of Simon Cowell.”

The argument got so heated that police even had to be called. But the neighbour – who hasn’t been named – clearly stood by his actions as he then went on to brand 58-year-old Simon a “t***” in a rant the next day.

“I wrote a sign on my door saying, ‘Please do not park in front of my house’ and they still did it,” he told The Sun.

“But I’m always unhappy with Cowell – he’s a t***. Who is he? Some prat – the X Factor guy? I lost my temper last night and I’ll do it again – do not park near my frontage. It happens every night.”

Before adding, “I’m sick of his face.”

Witnesses to the alleged altercation claim the man was “screaming” outside Simon’s £10million pad which he shares with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, 39, and their three-year-old son, Eric.

Police were then reportedly called after the dad-of-one’s security team were unable to calm the situation down, before two passing officers on motorbikes apparently managed to diffuse the bust-up.

Phew, luckily no one was harmed during the scary altercation but Simon is yet to comment.
