Simon on Prank 911 Call, Britney on 'X Factor' Castoff

“Extra’s” Terri Seymour caught up with “The X Factor” mentors Simon Cowell, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato after Thursday’s double elimination show.
Cowell talked about the recent “swatting” prank that propelled him into the news. Simon explained, “I was asleep and the police turned out. They were told that I was tied up in my bedroom with duct tape.” Then he laughed to Terri, “You were probably behind it.”

Simon also admitted he has not yet bought "Extra" and "The X Factor” host Mario Lopez a wedding gift. “I'll get him one,” jokingly adding, “A signed autograph.”
Fellow mentor Britney Spears commented it was “disappointing” her charge Diamond White was eliminated. “She's so young, so she has the future ahead of her. She’s going to go far.”
The final four will compete next week in “The X Factor” semifinals. Tune in on FOX!
