Simon Cowell Wants to Sue iTunes

Simon Cowell is taking iTunes down!! Well not really, but he is planning on launching a lawsuit against iTunes because the music giant prevented fans from downloading his clients singles.

British X Factor winner Leon Jackson had a really big debut on iTunes, so big that it caused the site to crash temporarily. As a result thousands of fans were unable to purchase the single, 'When You Believe.'

An insider at the Cowell-owned SonyBMG tells British newspaper The Sun, "Everybody here is up in arms. There's been a monumental cock up. Simon is hugely disappointed about the situation and is considering launching legal proceedings. Everybody is really upset for Leon and don't want technical malfunctions to mar his big week."

A rep for iTunes has declined to comment.
