Simon Cowell Reported Pay Insanely Larger Than Paula Abdul

It is being reported by numerous celebrity blogs and sites that producers of American Idol were being tight-fisted (it’s all relative – we guess) because they went so high to keep jet setter and Jet Skier, Simon Cowell – $45,000,000 per year.  That number is up from his current contract of $36,000,000 per year. 

Paula Abdul, the dancer and supposed competent skier wanted $10,000,000 up from her current $4,000,000.  With the Simon outlay, they didn’t think they could afford a $10,000,000 Paula.  How much do school teachers make again?  I guess $45,000,000 per year is worth it if you are the one who gave us Clay Aiken.

Lets hope Simon will hit ski resort after ski resort this winter and spread around some of that new loot!
