Simon Cowell ‘reveals he bought electric car’ since his son Eric is ‘obsessed’ with climate change

Simon Cowell has reportedly revealed he bought an electric car after his son Eric taught him about climate change.

The music mogul, 62, added that he bought the vehicle from luxury manufacturer, Tesla, since the seven-year-old is ‘obsessed’ with global warming.

Judging at the recent Britain’s Got Talent auditions at the London Palladium, he told the audience, according to The Mirror: ‘My son is obsessed with climate change, he’s taught me a lot recently.

‘He goes down on the beaches and cleans them up. I think it’s something we should all take seriously now. I’ve just bought a Tesla.’

Speaking after a dance act put on a climate change-themed performance featuring a voiceover from Sir David Attenborough, he gushed about the recital in his feedback.

The Syco boss said: ‘My son is going to love this, that’s how you make an impression on a show like this.’

Hilariously jibing at his co-star, David Walliams pointed out that Simon is a big fan of fuel-guzzling private jets, adding: ‘You just use Elton’s, don’t you?’

His jaw-dropping car collection is thought to consist of a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, a Jaguar Eagle Speedster, a Bugatti Veyron as well as a Mini.

The entrepreneur has long been known for his penchant for Rolls Royce Phantoms which start at around £363,000.

But having splashed out on an environmentally friendly vehicle, he has joined the likes of celebrities including George Clooney, Demi Moore and Zoey Deschanel.

The most expensive Model S standard range vehicle costs around £74,000.

It comes after Simon reportedly ‘exploded’ at his fellow-judge David during filming for the BGT auditions after he made a lewd joke.

Sources claim the record executive berated the comic for his cheeky comment in reference to a contestant, noting the programme is supposed to be ‘a family show.’

According to The Sun, contestant Tim Jones took to the stage dressed in police uniform for his audition, leading David to joke: ‘Arrest me now!’

As Tim began to explain his talent the cheeky judge interrupted: ‘Is it getting your c*** out?’

Simon was quick to interject as he ordered David to apologise which only fueled David who then added: ‘Do you swing it around?’

Furious Simon exclaimed ‘Get out, get out, this is supposed to be a family show!’

Turning to address the audience the BGT creator added: ‘When we have a break we’ll make him sit on his own for ten minutes.’

An audience member told the publication: ‘It was clear that David was sailing close to the wind with his jibes. Then he went too far. Simon was visibly angry with him and exploded.’

The guest explained that David had been making jibes at Simon all day before he pushed it too far with the gag.
