Simon Cowell $36 Million “American Idol” Salary Angers Paula Abdul
Break out the Jesus Juice! Paula Abdul is ready to hit the roof after learning that fellow American Idol judge Simon Cowell is clocking $36 million a year to her “meager” $5-$8 million salary.
“Paula knew that Simon was getting paid more, but she never imagined it was this much more,” an Abdul insider spilled to MSNBC this week. “This could really put her in a bad way.”
“She has a lot of concerns with feeling appreciated. First, they bring in another judge (Kara DioGuardi) and now it’s ridiculously obvious that she’s getting pennies compared to Simon.”
