Simon Cowell Spotted With A Plaster Behind His Ear As He Heads Out In LA

As shaving injuries go, it's one of the most unusual I've ever clapped eyes on but that's the reason Simon Cowell (or a source at least) is giving for that curious plaster behind his ear.

The music mogul - who is no stranger to the odd Botox injection - was spotted with the plaster behind his lughole as he took a drive down Sunset Boulevard in his vintage, convertible Ford Bronco jeep.

But a source close to the X Factor USA judge - who has missed recent auditions for the show after being struck down with Bronchitis - said the star hasn't gone under the knife.

"He accidentally cut himself," the source told MailOnline.

Aaaah yes, that annoying bit of hair that grows directly behind the ears. Always a tricky procedure trying to shave that bit.

Unless he was climbing the walls after lying in his sick bed for a few days and had bit of a Van Gogh moment.

Either way, we're glad to see he's on the mend. Now Si, get back to your X Factor seat before Louis gets too comfortable.
