Simon Cowell was all set to join the One Direction boys in London this month, as they head to The Brit Awards in the hope of picking themselves up a gong or two, however it’s been reported that the music mogul will have to give the event a miss.

It’s been a massive year for Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles. Their third album Midnight Memories topped charts around the world, they topped the box office with their first movie This Is Us, they were named the best selling global act of 2013 and sold out a massive worldwide stadium tour. And that’s only the big stuff!

Simon put the band together, helped push them towards the final and now heads up their record label, so he was hoping to be there to watch his boys bring home another win at The Brits.

However insiders told The Mirror that the star is going to have to give up his front row seat at the ceremony, as he’s set to head back to New York.

Cowell has been in the UK for weeks as he attends the Britain’s Got Talent auditions, but it’s said when the London tryouts end he’ll be hopping on a jet and heading back to the Big Apple to be with his heavily pregnant girlfriend Lauren Silverman.

The dad to be is worried that if he stays in London any longer he’ll miss the birth of his first child.

A source told The Mirror that while SiCo ‘loves The Brits’ and feel she should be there because of his place in the industry, this time he knows he has to put his family first.

They added:

“He is about to be a dad and he would be heartbroken if he missed the birth. He will be in New York waiting to become a dad so he has no choice. He will obviously be keeping everything crossed that the boys win though.”

The Brit Awards will take place on February 19 at The O2 Arena in London, and if you haven’t got a ticket then they’ll will be shown live on ITV1 at 8pm.

Cowell may not be going to the event, however he will apparently be arranging a secret bash for the 1D lads at a secret central London location.

He may well be catching up with the band before then too, as insiders told Star magazine that Simon is a bit worried about some members in particular.

It’s been reported that Harry is dating Kendall Jenner and while the romance has kept One Direction on the front pages of magazines around the world, Cowell is said to be concerned that his boy will get sucked into the crazy Kardashian circus.

A source said:

“Simon knows Harry and Kendall’s relationship is great for One Direction’s profile, but he’s wary of Harry being sucked into the Kardashian circus. He warned him that won’t do him any favours long-term.”

What do you think of it all One Direction fans? Do you think the lads can scoop the British Group and British Single gongs at the Brit Awards?

Is Simon right to be worried about Harry & Kendall? Leave your commets below….

    Of course he’s worried! It’s the Kardashians. They have their own fricking show. They are hungry for fame, and Harry, thankfully isn’t. Course Simon would be worried, anyone with a rational mind would.
    The fandom is worried.
    The world is worried.
    Minus the Kardashians.
    God, no one can keep up with them!

    Simon should be worried that family are hungry for money and fame and anything to get their names in newspapers and the news. They don’t care about anyone but themselves especially Kris who harry needs to be careful of. And without a doubt their gonna win these awards 🙂

    I don’t like hendal because the only reason she “likes” him is for publicity of her show. And every directioner knows that, but sadly he doesn’t see it. She’s going to ruin the band. She probably doesn’t even have any feelings for him. 😭😭😭

    She more then likely DOES have feelings for Harry. She isn’t so bad. Just because she is on Keeping up with the Kardashian’s doesn’t mean she is a heartless jerk. Your obviously jealous of Kendall

    Oh puhleeze! Simon was the one advocating for Harry & Kendall in the first place so Ryan Seacrest & E! could both get promo for their stupid KUWTK show! Ugh……..

    Simon has every right to be worried about harry and kenda dating I never liked these dumb kardashians this couple will not last trust me. These dumb kardashians are sneaky, sleezy people and are all about money. Harry is too dumb to know that sorry to Insult him but that’s what i think. She will eventually try and break up one direction. You ll see it will happen one of these days. Harry needs to stop living in denial and listen to Simons words. It seems like everytime a new album comes out he dates someone. I don’t get it at all also that the fact they lie to the media saying that there friends and one person says there dating I really do not know what do believe anymore. Oh well who gives a rats ass!

    Harry and Kendall aren’t dating. Neither of them have confirmed it and you can never trust these ‘sources’. Kris Jenner and the rest of the Kardashians are just hungry for fame and they’re just trying to get more publicity for KUWTK.

    I honestly don’t like the Hendall couple! Because of Kendall Jenner Harry has been having a lot of fights in the band. Kendall is just trying to get fame from Harry. So Simon should be worried about them because Chris Jenner was threatening Harry to either date Kendall and leave One Direction or don’t date her at all! I mean that clearly shows that Chris Jenner just wants him for fame. all the bandmates have even warned Harry and very worried about him.

    Everyone is saying Kendall is after Harry’s fame. Has anyone even considered the fact that she is already famous and she might actually LIKE Harry. Directioners aren’t giving him enough credit that he wouldn’t be so naive. Until they confirm it they’re not dating, and if they are mind your bussiness and stop hating on them.
