via: GettyShocking news has just come through. The iconic music business legend, Simon Cowell, has broken his back.
But firstly...We all know and love Simon for his no-nonsense approach as a judge on America's Got Talent.
But Simon's career goes back way further than just judging on our country's favorite talent show...Born and raised in London, the world-famous Simon Cowell began his career in the music industry.
In the 1990s, Simon set up his own record company - S Records.
via: GettyHe went on to sign numerous British artists who would go on to make Simon his first few millions.
Simon then proved his potential as a talent judge on British singing show, Pop Idol.
via: GettyThis was soon followed by more British talent shows, such as The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent.
Simon quickly became known for his harsh but honest opinions...And he was never afraid to tell contestants if they weren't what he was looking for.
And when he agreed to judge America's Got Talent...The country very quickly fell in love with his hilariously stubborn attitude.
But it wasn't just his harsh professionalism that caught fan's attention...
via: GettyIt was also his squeaky clean appearance.
Everyone knows Simon for his insanely white teeth...

But regardless of what he looks like...
via: GettyHis loyal fan base continues to send his praises, and his most recent move has gathered a lot of admiration.
We are all well aware of the global pandemic that we are living through...
via: GettyAnd times are now more difficult than ever for millions of people around the world.
So many people are now out of employment...
via: GettyAnd millions here in the United States have lost their jobs thanks to the pandemic.
A lot of people are now relying on government schemes for payouts from their former jobs...
via: GettyAnd this includes former employees of celebrity-owned companies.
It is no secret that certain wealthy celebrities have been relying upon the government to pay their employees, rather than pay up themselves.
via: GettyFor instance, Richard Branson, who owns the Virgin Group, has publically asked for British taxpayers to help pay his former staff... rather than personally dip into his own net worth of $4.2 billion.
This is wrong on so many levels...And it seems that Simon, who is a very wealthy man himself, completely agrees with us.
Simon has agreed to pay fifty of his full-time members of staff who work at his production company, Syco, in London and Los Angeles...
via: GettyAnd according to local media, he said, "I don't like celebrities telling people what to do, and I know this is a hugely difficult time for so many - worries about family, health, jobs, paying the mortgage and feeding their family are at the forefront of people's minds. "But there are still other people in business and in entertainment with resources available, so today it's those people I'm urging to rise to this enormous challenge," he went on to say.
