Simon Cowell talks ‘total torture’ concerning son’s future in Hollywood: ‘The hardest’

Despite his famously steely public persona, Simon Cowell quickly turns into a total sweetheart when it comes to his nine-year-old son Eric.

However, now that Eric is growing up and starting to express an interest in following in his dad’s footsteps, the music executive isn’t afraid to say that it’s a no from him.

The America’s Got Talent judge shares his son with fiancée Lauren Silverman, who he has been linked to since 2013

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Simon shared how his job as a talent competition judge may have inspired his son a little too much for his liking.

“Now [he’s] decided he’s going to audition for Britain’s Got Talent,” he revealed, adding: “I think he wants to be in a rock band,” and that he loves Green Day.

Exciting as it may be that Eric is finding his passion, and while any doting parent wants to be as supportive as possible of their kids’ endeavors, Simon couldn’t help but confess: “That’s going to be total torture.”

He explained: “I mean, of all the things I’ve ever done, this will probably be the hardest, because he does play drums. [He’s] going to drum and sing! I went, ‘Oh God, no.'”

Despite his dad’s hesitation, Eric is committed to honing his drumming skills, and Simon did admit: “He’s really serious about it.”
