Simon Cowell Saves Passengers on Sinking Boat
Simon Cowell Comes to Sinking Boat Passengers' Rescue
Simon Cowell, you magnificent stud.
Cowell is being hailed as a hero -- bet you never thought you'd hear that.
Cowell, the grumpy American Idol and X Factor judge, does have a heart after all, it seems, as he saved a group of passengers aboard a sinking yacht.
He was aboard his own yacht with ex-girfriend Sinitta, vacationing in St. Tropez, when he received a May Day distress call over the radio.
Cowell alerted his captain and they set out to help the nine passengers whose yacht was sinking.
Sinitta tweeted, "OMG!! Just had a May Day message, 35ft boat sinking ... SC has sent us to help and rescue 9 people on board! Slipstream look alike boat"
She later added, "Everyone ok, noone hurt.captain won't let boat sink, petrol in sea etc would cause major problems and fines. No tide, so hole plugs."
Cowell joins the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Dustin Hoffman, Stephen Baldwin, and Mila Kunis, who have all come to the aid of regular non-celebrity-types in need.
And you thought Cowell only thought about himself.
