London: Simon Cowell reportedly paid 4000 pounds to have a nice chat with lap dancers at a London club this week.

The ‘X Factor’ supremo, 52, refused all offers of private performances from the bevy of attentive beauties surrounding his VIP tables, a leading daily reported.

“He had a huge wad of cash with him and a big smile on his face. He must have spent at least 4000 pounds on just talking to the girls,” a source claimed to the paper.

The music mogul was joined by former News of the World showbiz editor Rav Singh and both of them splashed out on two 300 pounds bottles of Grey Goose vodka and dozens of bottles of Sapporo beer.

Cowell emerged from the famous venue at 4am with a cheeky grin on his face as he realised he had been seen, a leading daily reported.

Carrying nothing but his mobile phone and a pack of menthol cigarettes, he headed directly from the club to his waiting car.
