Simon Cowell ‘s Rolls Royce has been pictured parked up in the disabled car parking space at a service station.
The music mogul wasn’t driving at the time on Tuesday, with his driver instead making the mistake as they arrived at Cobham services on the M25 in Surrey.
It is thought the star was on the way to his mum’s funeral at the time.
Dressed in a smart suit, Simon was joined by his partner Lauren Silverman as the pair were snapped heading inside the service station.
Meanwhile Lauren looked as stunning as ever in all black as she appeared to laugh and joke with her man, no doubt being a huge support on the day.
A source told us: “It appears Simon’s driver may have unwittingly parked very briefly in the wrong place.
“But it’s understandable. It was the day of Simon’s mother’s funeral – so naturally and totally understandably their minds weren’t as focused on parking regulations as they normally would have been.”
The pair were joined by two more men, with one getting out while the other stayed in the car for the short stop.
A spokesman for Simon declined to comment.
Meanwhile Simon is said to be offering One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson support after he found out he’s to be a dad.
While taken aback at the news, The X Factor judge offered to be on hand with fatherly advice for the 1D heart-throb.
