Does Simon Cowell's New House Have the X Factor?

We totally trust Simon Cowell's sharp eye for picking the best and his even-sharper tongue for dismissing anything short of it, so are paying close attention to the house that sources say he recently bought in Beverly Hills' Trousdale Estates. It wasn't an active listing, but sources say he paid about $13.5 million for the 7,265-square-foot home. The home was last on the market in 2004.
