London: Media mogul Simon Cowell has reportedly splashed out 100,000 pounds on overhauling security at his home here after a fan broke in and hid in his wardrobe earlier this year.
Cowell, 53, has spent the huge ransom to turn his home into a fortress, reported Sun online.
"Simon`s a perfectionist about everything and his security renovations were so extensive that he`s had to put in for planning permission to get them done.
"He basically wants to transform his London home into a fortress," a source said.
After hearing a loud bang when the intruder crashed through the window when he was watching television in his home, Simon alerted his staff, who in turn called the cops and sent a squad of armed officers to the property.
