Matthew Garrahan of the Financial Times recently spent a day with "American Idol" meany Simon Cowell.
The article casually mentioned that Cowell’s sometimes friend, sometimes foil, Simon Fuller has made a move to buy back his management company, 19 Entertainment, from CKX. Fuller was the original Svengali of "Pop Idol" and The Spice Girls before selling out to billionaire Robert F.X. Sillerman.
"We’re both in a similar position now where neither of us owns anything," Cowell told the paper. "There’s something special about owning your own property."
