Simon Cowell Had A Breakdown

And you might well respond, "Well, he's given plenty of singers breakdowns with his harsh commentary!"

But that wouldn't be very compassionate, would it?

A far nicer approach would be to realize that the pressure of working on X Factor has been enormous, and at the start of the summer, when Simon missed filming on the auditions, it was apparently because of "nervous exhaustion," not the officially stated reason, bronchitis.

Simon has reportedly said, "I desperately need peace. I'm craving normality. I've got to work out my demons and come out of it."

(A familiar cry from lots of people I know.)

It's all due to the pressures of being a big figure with a crazy schedule. (Ask Susan Boyle, who went through something similar after she she "dreamed a dream" and it came true.)

But here's a word to the wise:

It's when you're not a big figure that the breakdowns really begin.

I almost had a breakdown just thinking of his schedule, and why, why, why when he's so damn rich already.

It's called "Narcissistic Personality Disorder" and we ALL have it.

@mikeymusto So if your filthy rich and busy it may cause a nervous breakdown? His histrionic, "confident" personality might be the culprit.

It couldn't happen to an ickier person and I wonder if it even happened or if it's just publicity to get press for X Factor.
