Simon Cowell’s AMAZING gesture as he invites five-year-old cancer patient to son’s birthday

Not Mr Nasty at all, then

Simon Cowell showed off his warm side when he made a lovely gesture to a young cancer patient.

Kian Musgrove, five, who has to fly to America for regular treatment, had a great day when X Factor judge Simon invited him over for his son Eric’s fourth birthday party.

According to reports, the two little boys had fun playing together on a giant bouncy castle and in a huge ball pit.

Kian’s mum Kat, 30, told Chronicle Live: “Two days ago I got a message from Eric’s mammy asking if we would like to go to his party. Simon paid for us to be chauffeur driven and our train journey, he’s so kind.

“We have arrived at this real luxurious hotel in a Jaguar. Kian is loving it.”

Simon first got to know the family in 2016, when the music mogul stepped in and donated a whopping £25,000 and paid for flights to New York for Kian’s treatment for neuroblastoma.

He had been touched by the young lad’s plight and ever since then has been helping them.

In December Simon invited Kian his family to watch the X Factor live final in London.

And before his final round of treatment in January, the Britain’s Got Talent judge invited him and his family to spend the day in London and attend rehearsals as his special guests.

His latest act of generosity and kindness was a welcome break as Kian and his mum Kat wait to see if the latest pioneering treatment he received in America, which cost hundreds of thousands of pounds, has been a success.

They have faced this battle ever since Kian was diagnosed with the aggressive form of cancer aged just 18-months-old.

A recent post by Kat on the Caring For Kian website thanked Simon for everything he’s done.

She wrote: “I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Simon Cowell (and his team) for all the help he has given Kian, Katie and I.

“Simon has made such a huge, generous and significant contribution helping to save my son’s life.

“There aren’t words to describe how eternally grateful we are.

“Simon helped towards treatment costs, accommodation expenses, flights ensuring we travelled in comfort when facing the most challenging time of our lives.  I don’t know what we would have done without him.”

It’s not the first time Simon has shown off his charitable side.

He donated £250,000 to hospices Together for Short Lives and Shooting Star Chase during last year’s X Factor final.
