Simon Cowell touches down in LA after being called out again by Gabrielle Union

Simon Cowell was seen touching down at Van Nuys Airport with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman and their son Eric after being called out again by Gabrielle Union.

The music mogul, 61, has come under fire again for ‘smoking indoors’ on America’s Got Talent, as former co-star Gabrielle claimed he thinks he’s ‘above the law’.

However, Simon appeared worlds away from the drama on Wednesday, as he arrived back in Los Angeles on a private jet following a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The X Factor supremo kept it low-key in a grey T-shirt and a pair of white shorts, which he teamed with a pair of white loafers.

Simon was wearing a face mask to protect himself against coronavirus, however it appeared to have slipped off his face and was left dangling around his neck.

The star’s mini-me son Eric, six, wore a similar outfit to his father and sported a blue face mask with his white and grey ensemble.

So chic! Meanwhile, Lauren looked effortlessly chic as usual in a slouchy black T-shirt which she teamed with a pair of white skinny jeans and aviator shades

The mother-of-two also covered up with a face mask and carried her belongings in a selection of stylish bags.

The families appearance came hours after Gabrielle claimed she thinks Simon believes he is above the law due to the fact he smoked inside during her time on America’s Got Talent.

The actress, 47, spoke about her experiences on the NBC talent show during an appearance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah on Tuesday.

Gabrielle’s comments came after she a harassment complaint against Simon and NBC, after claiming a network chairman tried to silence her reports of racism. 

During her interview, Gabrielle also suggested that she thought an investigation into her claims would be ‘independent’, but claimed it was funded by NBC.

Discussing her experience on the primetime show, she said: ‘Day one, Simon Cowell is smoking cigarettes inside. I’ve worked a long time.

‘I’ve worked with all kinds of people. I’ve never experienced that,’ Gabrielle said, while also mentioning that she is severely allergic to cigarette smoke.

‘When your boss — the person who has the ability to determine who gets opportunities and who doesn’t — doesn’t believe that the law applies to him or the rules apply to him, and he does it in full view of NBC, Fremantle and Syco and no one cares about Simon Cowell exposing all of these employees to second hand smoke, that’s day one,’ Gabrielle claimed.

‘What message do you think that sends to anyone that has an issue with the very real racism and the lack of accountability?’ Gabrielle continued. ‘And it goes on and on and on.’

The Bring It On star also touched on the investigation into her racism allegations, which was commissioned by NBC, which she believed would be independent. 

‘I decided to participate in this investigation,’ Gabrielle said. ‘Silly me, I thought ‘independent’ was independent. But when NBC and [producers] Fremantle and Syco pay for that investigation, they control it.’

‘They turn over what they believe to be inflammatory things, or things that are not advantageous to me,’ Gabrielle alleged. ‘In the middle of an investigation about racism and discrimination? This is what’s happening from the top of the company.’

MailOnline have commented Simon’s representative’s for comment. 

Gabrielle filed a harassment complaint against NBC and Simon earlier this month, after claiming a network chairman tried to silence her reports of racism.
