Simon runs the show and as long as he’s there, he will continue to do so,” says the source. “Everything goes by him and he’s rubbed a lot of people the wrong way,” the source explains, adding that people who work on the show will rarely “tell him, ‘no.’” PEOPLE is out to Cowell’s rep for comment. On Monday, Howard Stern, who previously served as a judge on AGT for four seasons from 2012 through 2015, hinted at Cowell’s allegedly questionable behavior on the show, both slamming and accusing him of having “orchestrated” Union’s firing.
