Simon Cowell keeping a mouse found at “idol” is just a tale

Truth rating: 0

According to the National Enquirer, before leaving “American Idol,” Simon Cowell found a mouse in his dressing room.

Initially, he was going to set it free, but a so-called “source” tells the supermarket tabloid that Cowell instead “took the mouse home to his mansion, then stayed up half the night feeding it warm milk.”

The “source” added, “He became so attached to his new little pet, he even took it on trips.”

This is a nice little tail, er, tale, but it isn’t true, though Gossip Cop still loves the part about Cowell “feeding it warm milk.”

A source close to Cowell adds, “Simon likes animals but not that much!”
