SIMON COWELL lost a $20,000 bet to his former co-judge L.A. REID over their show’s new Season 2 winner, TATE STEVENS.
With him and Simon each having one contestant competing during the finals, they decided to bet on who would win this year.
This year, Simon, whose Season 1 act Melanie Amaro won last year, forked his money over for Reid‘s contestant Tate Steven‘s Thursday win—a whole $20,000, which shouldn’t count as much for the wealthy singing competition honcho.
The British judge’s rep shared to Gossip Cop:
“It was a double or quits bet from last year.”
