Simon Cowell, the best known judge on "American Idol" is not leaving the show because he is getting married or that it is because of his new job as producer of The X Factor on the new US version, according to a Source.
"Simon Cowell will not sit down unless he absolutely has to", stated the Source.
What happened goes back to a couple months ago during a preliminary qualifying try-out that included a young lady from Haiti. Cowell apparently told the young lady that her singing was a worse disaster than the earthquake.
"The young lady could not sing, but someone had told her that she could", stated the Source. "So she told Cowell that he would rue the day he made such a statement and put a voodoo curse on a laughing Cowell."
Then, again according to the source, Cowell came into the studios the next day, barely walking.
"They had to get him a special cushion. He had the worse case of hemorrhoids that his doctor has ever seen. That's why he's leaving American Idol to the new X-Factor, where he will be able to move around."
Although he refuses to talk about it, Cowell has been seen walking funny with his fiance, Mezhgan Hussainy. He also takes a "doughnut cushion" into restaurants with him.
"He's had three operations since that time but they keep returning", stated the Source. "I told Cowell that he's lucky that she didn't turn him into a cow.
