Simon Cowell: 'I Hid In My Wardrobe During Stalker Break-In'

Posted: Updated:

It can be a treacherous business being a celeb - something Simon Cowell knows all about after a stalker broke into his home in March this year.

Now the music mogul has opened up about the ordeal and revealed he hid in his bedroom wardrobe at his London home until police arrived to deal with crazed fan, Leanne Zaloumis.

Speaking to In Touch Weekly, he said: "I ended up hiding in one of my wardrobe closets until the police found her. That was a little bit spooky."

Brrrrrr.

And if that wasn't scary enough, the X Factor judge also revealed that the alleged culprit - who used a brick to smash her way into his home - wrote the words 'Help Me' in blood on one of his walls.

"A week later, I watched the movie 'Seven' and the serial killer did exactly the same thing," he said.

Zaloumis was served with a restraining order after carrying out a 102-day prison sentence following the break-in.
