Ever wondered how 52-year-old music mogul Simon Cowell stays looking so young? According to a new book out soon it is all due to Botox (which we knew) and colonic irrigation, black toilet paper and intravenous vitamin sessions, which we probably didn’t know.
The X Factor judge reportedly had six-monthly Botox injections, regular colonic irrigation, intravenous vitamin injections and will only use black toilet paper.
Cowell eats fresh fruit sent to him by air freight and drinks two smoothies a day made from exotic plants. He also has massages, chest waxes, wears tooth caps and dies his hair dark.
These anti-aging revelations have been made in a new book, ‘Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell,’ by Tom Bower, which is to be published on Friday.
He has the Botox injections administered by French doctor Jean-Louis Sebagh in London.
Cowell Cowell is reported to have told friends of the Botox: ‘It simply works. You do it twice a year. Who cares? And it balances my smoking and drinking.’
So healthy eating and cutting out cigarettes obviously don’t feature in Cowell’s regime. But he does get his vitamins when he is in the U.S. Cowell apparently is hooked up to an intravenous drip in his bedroom for half an hour every Saturday afternoon, according to The Sun newspaper. It pumps B vitamins and pure vitamin C into his bloodstream.
But Cowell will also take “a saucer full of tablets” each day and will not travel without two suitcases full of eye drops, face creams, bath salts and lotions.
But it’s not just his appearance he takes pride in – Cowell splashes money on the finer things in life. He apparently insists on black toilet paper in the bathroom of his U.S. homes. He reportedly spends $6,000 a week on fresh flowers and recently spent $15 million renovating his $40 million Beverly Hills mansion on North Palm Drive.
Simon Cowell also owns a $15million home in Trousdale Place which is being rebuilt in Balinese style to be used as an office. The project is being overseen by his ex-fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy. He also has a $40million home in Holland Park, West London and has put down a deposit on a villa to be built on a site adjoining a Four Seasons hotel in Barbados.
In even more bizarre stories of a man living almost like a ‘modern-day Roman emperor’, Cowell once bought a vintage MG car but sold it the next day because it was ‘too draughty’, flew his personal chef from London to Los Angeles to inspect outdoor pizza ovens installed in his home and complained that grass laid around his property was ‘too smooth’ and ordered gardeners to replace it.
These and many more revelations are included in ‘Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell,’ by Tom Bower. That’s quite apart from Cowell now admitting a fling with Dannii Minogue!
