Why Simon Cowell’s Brother Won’t be Invited to His Wedding
Simon Cowell is personally taking charge of arrangements for his wedding to girlfriend Lauren Silverman — reportedly planned for Cliveden House next month.
Cowell, 62, famously doesn’t like big parties; and even more famously, isn’t a fan of getting married. He said in an interview that he didn’t want the fuss of a wedding planner, so is doing it all himself.
It’s going to be an ‘intimate’ gathering of friends and family. Son Eric, eight, will be centre stage, and Adam — bride Lauren’s son from her first marriage — will be there, too.
Cowell’s half-siblings Michael, Tony and June are all expected to come — June from her home in Majorca.
However, his brother Nick, his only full sibling, looks certain to be absent.
Nick, a successful property developer, was very close to Simon. Sadly, though, the two fell out badly some years ago, for reasons never uncovered.
I can reveal that they were not even on speaking terms until recently.
A confidante of Cowell’s says: ‘There has been a thawing of relations and they are now talking to each other occasionally. There’s been perestroika, after years of no-contact, but it’s early days still. I would definitely not expect him [Nick] at the wedding.’
Another adds: ‘They are only just talking; and we don’t expect that Nick or his family will put in an appearance.’
