Washington, August 27: Sharon Osbourne has claimed that Syco boss Simon Cowell is a "big old softie" and revealed that she never "seriously" fell out with him.
According to a UK publication, The 'X Factor' UK judge revealed that the 53-year old music mogul was the first to get in touch following her son Jack's multiple sclerosis diagnosis and insisted he is a better man than people give him credit for, the Daily Star reported.
The 60-year-old star, who is making her return to Cowell's talent show after a long hiatus, also denied any rumors of a major rift between the pair and said that they had cleared matters amicably.
Fellow judge Louis Walsh added that Cowell will embrace fatherhood and called it the "best thing that's happened to him"
Cowell is reportedly expecting a baby in February 2014, with 36-year old New York socialite Lauren Silverman. (ANI)
