With the U.S. version of his hit show X Factor set to launch, Simon Cowell is a busy man — perhaps too busy.


“Simon’s mom is freaking out. His family thinks he’s doing too much and are telling him to slow down before his workload seriously damages his health.” a source tells the Sun.


Cowell is reportedly planning to be a judge on both the American and British editions of the show, though some have their doubts. “Simon’s a workaholic but he’d need a time machine to be physically able to appear on both the American and UK versions,” another source says.
