Simon Cowell Throws Shade At David Walliams Over Pay Raise
If there is one thing you can say about Simon Cowell is that he always speaks his mind, even at inappropriate times. But if you poke the bear you are going to get mauled. That’s exactly what happened to Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams when he made a snide remark at Simon Cowell’s expense.
The two were at a taping of auditions for the upcoming season of Britain’s Got Talent in Blackpool when Simon asked a contestant what they would do with the prize money. That’s when Walliams said,
“It’s all about money with you, isn’t it Simon?”
But Simon wasn’t going to take that lying down. He brought up some dirty backstage laundry saying,
“Seeing as your agent asked for a 50 per cent pay rise, that’s a bit rich coming from you.”
Simon then apparently started swearing under his breath at David. Damn. I thought this season was going to be good because of the acts but if the judges are going to fight like two dogs battling over milkbone, I’m sold.
