If you are active on social media, you might have seen certain posts claiming that Simon Cowell has died. With several follow-up reports from the local press, many fans of the English TV personality are convinced that the star is no more.
Most of the posts claim that Simon Cowell was in a fatal car accident and passed away in the hospital, where he was taken after the accident.
However, the Britain's Got Talent judge is alive and well, and the proof of the same is the tweet he put out on January 31, 2023.
No official announcement has been made about the TV star’s death. That, coupled with his aforementioned tweet, is proof enough that Simon Cowell has not died and that his death rumors are merely a hoax.
Recently, plenty of social media users have shared news articles claiming that famous celebrities - from Alan Jackson to Kelly Clarkson and even Elliott Davis - have passed away. Simon Cowell is the latest celebrity to fall prey to such a hoax.
