Beverly Hills police responded to a call that someone had been tied up and needed help at ‘X Factor’ judge Simon Cowell’s house, but the report turned out to be false, authorities said Monday.

The caller initially told Beverly Hills police that the person had been tied up with duct tape and gave an address outside of city limits, according to authorities. The caller then said the incident was taking place at ‘Simon Cowell’s’ house, which is in Beverly Hills.


‘Officers responded to the Cowell residence and contacted Mr. Cowell and confirmed that the call was a false report of an emergency,’ the Beverly Hills Police Department said in a statement.

The incident took place Sunday shortly before 1 p.m. No additional details were immediately available.
