Simon ‘Sacked’ Sharon Over Gay Jabs

Sharon Osborne and Simon Cowell may make nice on The X-Factor, but Osborne’s brother claims famous fame-maker Cowell once fired Osborne for calling him him gay.

Says Obsorne’s bro, David Arden:

She tells everyone he’s gay. She claims he’s in the closet and doesn’t know yet he’s homosexual, which is ridiculous.

And even though Simon has a beautiful girlfriend (model/TV presenter Terri Seymour), Sharon would openly harangue and taunt him about it.

Sharon told me that at the end of series one Simon actually got her fired for her jibes and nastiness to him and the contestants.

The producers persuaded Simon to give her a second chance as they loved the chemistry between the judges.

Even Simon Cowell couldn’t argue with ratings.
