Music mogul Simon Cowell’s house, worth £35 million, was burgled in the presence of his family.
The thieves stole cash and jewellery from the home in Holland Park, West London, with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman and son Eric inside on Friday.
According to a source: “It was clearly a very traumatic incident. Simon is just relieved that his family was safe and all right. Their safety is his number one priority.”
Police rushed to the luxury house, but the burglars had already fled.
The X Factor judge’s home was targeted before in March 2012. A stalker, Leanne Zaloumis, wielded a brick and hid on a shelf inside his wardrobe.
