SIMON Cowell is letting go of almost his entire staff at his company Syco and  "downsizing" after almost 20 years. The Sun can reveal the music mogul has chosen to consolidate his multi-million pound global empire - which has sold over 250 million records worldwide - to focus on family life.

In recent days many of Simon’s staff have begun "leaving" conversations – including some of his closest confidantes who have worked with him for decades.

A source said: “Simon has reached a time in his life when he doesn’t want the stress of running a global empire and so has made the difficult decision to wind down Syco. “Obviously everyone involved, including Simon, is very sad.

‘You Won’t Be Alone’ Film Review: Ambitious Horror Tale Collapses into Distracting Excess
th century Macedonia, writer-director Goran Stolevski’s debut feature presents a disorienting narrative about Nevena (mostly played by Noomi Rapace), a shape-shifting teenage witch who’s kidnapped and then haunted by the malicious “wolf-eateress” conjurer Maria (Anamaria Marinca, “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days”).The movie’s heavy-handed and often distracting impressionistic style — lots of too-tight extreme close-ups, wobbly hand-held camerawork, whispery stream-of-conscious voiceover narration, and over-edited montages — will understandably frustrate some viewers and draw comparisons to recent dramas directed by Terrence Malick (“Knight of Cups,” “The Tree of Life”) as well as Robert Eggers’ “elevated horror” movies “The Witch” and “The Lighthouse.” Stolevski’s pretentious and mindlessly alienating style also smothers his ensemble cast’s performances and his crew’s diligent contributions, especially work by production designer Bethany Ryan, costume designer Sladjana Perić-Santrač, sound designer Emma Bortignon, and their respective teams.Most of “You Won’t Be Alone” concerns Nevena (first played by Petra Ćirić, then Sara Klimoska) and her vain attempts at understanding basic human experiences after Yelena’s biological mother Yoana (Kamka Tocinovski) forces her to spend her childhood hiding from the predatory Maria. Yelena and the others usually explain their motives through elliptical, fragmented dialogue and voiceover narration, so it’s often hard to tell why they do what they do unless it’s heavily implied through distracting close-ups and babbling commentary.Basically, Nevena’s story begins after Maria abducts and adopts her.

Atletico Madrid 'pull off a Spurs' with two goals in added time to beat Valencia
Atletico Madrid produced a stunning late show to fight back and beat Valencia 3-2 with two goals in stoppage time, drawing comparisons to Tottenham’s comeback against Leicester just days before.The LaLiga champions were rocked by going into the half-time interval two goals down after some shoddy defending.American midfielder Yunus Musah skipped past two defenders before slotting into the near post past Jan Oblak to hand Valencia a shock lead inside 22 minutes.The hosts were then stunned into silence after Los Che full-back Hugo Duro rolled home, again taking advantage of sloppy marking in a usually organised Atletico backline.But Diego Simeone’s side set about embarking on the comeback trail when Matheus Cunha struck on 64 minutes to halve the deficit.In the first minute of seven added for stoppage time, Luis Suarez’s effort was saved by Jaume Domenech and there was Angel Correa to sweep home the rebound.Simeone celebrated euphorically on the touchline as the Wanda Metropolitano erupted, but there was still time for more drama.HAVE YOUR SAY: Which is the best comeback you have ever witnessed? Comment below.Cunha then turned provider with after striking a low cross-shot towards the far post and then was centre-back Mario Hermoso to tap home into the empty net.Valencia appealed for offside but the goal was allowed to stand after a brief check from the VAR, handing Atletico a precious victory.The win had a familiar feel to it as it was almost identical to the events that unfolded at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Simon Cowell 'spent £250k on stunning engagement ring' for fiancée Lauren Silverman
Simon Cowell is said to have spent a whopping amount on the engagement ring he presented Lauren Silverman when he popped the question last month.The pair had been holidaying out in Barbados when the music mogul proposed to the American socialite. According to reports, Lauren had already been giving Simon hints about what ring she would want if they were to get married one day. "And Simon, not being stupid, took notice," a source told The Sun."He chose the diamond himself, after getting some professional advice, and went down on one knee whilst on the beach."Both Lauren and Simon have been bombarded with messages of congratulations — they're both super-excited."It was initially claimed that Simon had spent an astounding £2.5 million for the ring, which a source close to the former X Factor judge has since denied. Simon and Lauren have been together since 2013 after the latter ended her 10-year marriage to American businessman Andrew Silverman in July that same year.They went on to welcome their son Eric Cowell in 2014.Express.co.uk has contacted Simon's reps for comment.Earlier this week, Simon and his soon-to-be wife were seen cycling through the streets of sunny Malibu together when a photographer asked the pair to confirm whether they were engaged.Simon cheekily replied: "What do you think?"He thanked the photog who congratulated the doting pair on the exciting news. Elsewhere, Amanda Holden has since reacted to the news of her Britain's Got Talent co-judge looking to tie the knot with his fiancée.Taking to her Heart Breakfast Show on Wednesday, the mother-of-two said she was stunned after receiving a text from Simon announcing his engagement. She recalled: "We all got the text saying, 'It's happening', and we couldn't
