He may ruin dreams weekly on “The X Factor,” but put Simon Cowell on a yacht in the south of France and he’s a regular citizen hero!
Yesterday Simon Cowell was cruising along on his yacht in St. Tropez with his ex-girlfriend Sinitta (Rumor Control: Are they back together?) he got a distress call that a nearby boat was sinking.
Simon told the captain of his boat to check out the situation and used his yacht as a lifeboat! According to the Standard, his rescue mission saved the lives of nine people!
Sinitta also tweeted about the rescue assuring us that everyone was fine!
OMG!! Just had a May Day message , 35ft boat sinking.. SC has sent us to help and rescue 9 people on board! Slipstream look alike boat— Sinitta (@sinittaofficial) August 29, 2012
Everyone ok, noone hurt.captain won't let boat sink, petrol in sea etc would cause major problems and fines. No tide, so hole plugged— Sinitta (@sinittaofficial) August 29, 2012
I think that last cryptic tweet translates roughly to: Nobody got hurt, but there is oil in the sea. That could be a problem? There wasn’t a tide so the captain plugged the hole of the sinking ship?
I think that's what she said, but don’t quote me on twitterspeak.
Wow, Simon Cowell. Mogul. Judge. A$$hole. Millionaire. HERO.
