Simon Cowell Facing Lawsuit From Former 'X Factor' Contestants
Six former X Factor contestants are reportedly filing a lawsuit against Simon Cowell’s production company SyCo. An anonymous woman told The Mirror that she and five others have approached a law firm and plan on suing SyCo for at least $1.2 million. The woman claimed that they are suing SyCo for “bullying, mistreatment and neglect” and revealed that “being on the show was a horrific experience”. We lost a lot of money from having periods of our lives not making money to deal with trauma still ingrained from the show, Anonymous Woman told The Mirror. SyCo allegedly told the Sunday Mirror that Cowell wasn’t aware of or involved in any of the allegations. A spokesperson for The X Factor has said that they have “robust measures and welfare teams in place to ensure support is always available”.
