Check out this clip of Simon Cowell on Friday’s Ellen Degeneres show. Simon is about to become a father, and of course he’s been thinking about what to name his son. He’s been joking (or maybe not) that he’d like to call him Simon.
He confesses to Ellen that he likes the idea of talking to someone else called Simon. Ellen reminds him that he has other friends named Simon. “No I don’t,” says Simon. “Simon Fuller?” asks Ellen.
“He’s NOT A friend,” Simon makes perfectly clear. OH SNAPPSSS.
“He was your friend,” says Ellen.
“This is getting really uncomfortable,” says Simon.
“Is that why you need a new Simon in your life? Because you lost a Simon?” Simon just laughs and laughs.
“What happened with y’all,” Ellen deadpans. Simon nearly spits out his drink.
