Simon Cowell has break-in at London home

Simon Cowell reportedly had a fright over the weekend after a woman allegedly broke into his London home.

According to reports, the reality show head honcho was just about to watch himself on "The Jonathan Ross Show" that Saturday night when he heard a strange noise coming from inside his Kensington-area mansion.

The Daily Mail reports that Cowell's rep said on a U.K. morning show Monday that when the entertainment mogul went to investigate, he found an unknown woman in his home with a brick in hand.

The woman was detained by Cowell's on-site security team until the police arrived and took her into custody, and has since reportedly been charged with aggravated burglary.

Other than being shaken up, Cowell is said to be OK, and nothing appears to have been taken.

"It was terrifying," Cowell's rep recalled Monday morning, "but as Simon said, 'You've got to say I was lucky.'"

    Surely the poor lady is mentally disturbeded. Seems like she could find something more interesting to do than that. Maybe she should try eating some melba toast or reading the dictionary.
