Simon Cowell is reportedly tightening his security at his £15million West London home following his terrifying break-in experience six years ago. The X Factor boss fears gangs could target them again, and is taking no chances when it comes to his family’s safety.

The raid on his previous four-storey London home, saw burglar Darren February take two passports and £1million worth of jewels while Simon, his partner Lauren Silverman, their then two-year-old son Eric and a nanny slept.

February was jailed for a further eight years as he was already serving eight and a half years for causing death by dangerous driving.

His actions left Simon’s family in “constant fear”.

A source told The Sun: “After the terrifying experience he had a few years ago Simon doesn’t want a repeat.

“He is only too aware of the threat of burglary and being in the public eye means he’s a potential target.”

They added that when he bought his latest home in the capital, he already had plans for top of the range security with “no expense spared”.

“These arrangements are ramping up his efforts even further,” they said.

“The most important thing to Simon is the safety of his family.

“No expense spared.”

In a victim impact statement read to the crown court in 2015, the entertainment boss said: “The whole incident has been very traumatic and there is a constant fear that it may be repeated and that it may be worse next time.”

He added: “This incident has caused me great concerns about the security of my family.

“On reflection, I am very scared of what could have happened to my son if the burglar had gone into his room. I could not bear to think of the consequences.”

Simon, who had lived at the property for 10 years, admitted at the time that his partner and their staff “became much more anxious over safety issues relating to my son’s care and wellbeing”.

A rep for Simon Cowell has been contacted by for comment.

Elsewhere, the music mogul is planning a big return for his ITV talent competitor X Factor next year.

The huge TV comeback will come after the show had a lengthy break in 2020 following declining figures.

An insider shared: “Simon wants to keep everyone on his sets safe and let 2021 play out.

“But he feels, after a much-needed break, X Factor 2022 will be good to go, with some changes.”
