Simon Cowell — Not Worried About Britney Spears Melting Down


Simon Cowell isn”t bothered one bit at the prospect of Britney Spears falling apart during a live episode of “X Factor” … insisting whatever happens will be ratings GOLD!!

Simon was leaving ABC Kitchen in NYC last night after a dinner date with the other new “X Factor” judge Demi Lovato  … when we asked the $15 million question — “Are you nervous with Britney being on live TV”

Some people are concerned about Brit because of her ongoing mental health issues … highlighted by the fact she”s still under a conservatorship. Simon is NOT one of those people.

As for dinner with Demi — we”re guessing Simon paid … since she”s only scoring a mere $1 million for the gig … table scraps compared to Britney.
