Simon Cowell is known for his cutting edge comments and bad guy attitude. He has recently softened though since becoming a father to his beloved baby boy and we have seen him playing the role of daddy perfectly!
But why was Simon Cowell so desperate to see THIS little boy, and why was his mom so shocked when she found out what the music mogul was about to tell her?
Turns out Simon had heard about this little boy and was determined to help after hearing the heartbreaking story.
Three-year-old Kian Musgrove is on his way to the US and a specialist clinic after the star paid for his flights and accommodation. But why?
Little Kian and his family, who come from Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK, needed £500,000 to get specialist treatment in New York after he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma.
Back in February, Cowell seen their plea for help on Twitter and immediately donated £25,000 to the little boys treatment.
He soon realised that this amount wasn’t enough, and now he has had the chance to experience fatherhood himself, he knew he needed to do more.
This weekend he went one generous step further and organised and paid for Kian and his mum Kat to fly to New York.
He broke the news to mom Kat, 28, when he was over in the UK. Simon even went to the hospital to visit the little boy who desperately needed help.
And speaking to our source as she and Kian waited to board their flight, she said she had tears rolling down her face when Simon called to break the news.
She added: “His generosity is absolutely amazing, it is so heart-warming.
“We will be forever grateful for his help and his part in our life-saving journey.
“I would like to thank everyone who has been a part of helping in any way at all, it really does mean the world to us. That kindness has kept us going and now we are finally on the way.”
It is so good to see celebrities using their money to save the lives of those who really need help. SHARE this article with your friends if you think Simon is a true SHINING STAR!
