Music mogul and retail billionaire may launch firm


Simon Cowell and Topshop boss Sir Philip Green are said to be creating a new entertainment company.

The pair are apparently in talks about a deal, which is expected to be finalised next month.

Simon, 49, has production company Syco, which makes Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor.

And it’s thought Sir Philip, 57, will bring his business acumen to a joint venture. 

‘They’ve been good friends for a long time and there’s a good chance they’ll be working together,’ Simon‘s publicist Max Clifford tells the BBC.
