Cowell to Leave His Millions to Charity
Music mogul Simon Cowell has vowed to leave the majority of his $200
million fortune to a variety of children's and animals charities upon his
death, after writing it into his will.
Idol judge, 48, plans to donate $180 million to various different
causes after he dies - dispelling the 'Mr. Nasty' nickname his sharp
tongue on TV talent shows has earned him.
He says, "Mum asked, 'Have you ever made a will?' I said, 'Thanks
a lot!' But it got me thinking."
But he admits his philanthropy will mean his family and his girlfriend
Terri Seymour will be left with just a fraction - $20 million - of his
vast fortune to share between them.
He adds, "Hopefully I'll be a lot older when it happens, so it
won't affect them much!"
