Simon Cowell’s mother dies; X Factor try-outs cancelled
Simon Cowell has cancelled auditions for the new season of his hit Brit show “The X Factor” following the death of his mother.
Cowell and his new panel of judges were set to start auditions on Monday, but try-outs have been postponed indefinitely while Cowell mourns the loss of his 89-year-old mom, Julie Cowell, who reportedly died after suffering a stroke.
Cowell was incredibly close to his mom, a former ballet dancer and mother of four and step-mom to two more.
