Although Cowell did not involve police in the matter, his lawyers have demanded the paparazzi not to exceed their limit and to refrain from unlawful attempts. "It is a step too far. He's been in this business for years. We're not making a song and dance about it, but it is unlawful," the Daily Star quoted Cowell's publicist Max Clifford, as saying.
"He is not a suspected terrorist. We've found out who the journalist is and we have decided to send out a note to the other papers asking them to refrain from that sort of thing," the publicist added.
