London, Jan 22 : 'American Idol' judge Simon Cowell showed that he was not all about cutting remarks with an announcement that he will be donating 90 million pounds to charity.
The 48 year old, who is believed to be worth 100million pounds, revealed that he will donate this amount to a mix of children's and animal charities.
Cowell admits that he started thinking about his cash after a chat with his mother Julie on holiday in Barbados over Christmas.
"Mum asked, 'Have you ever made a will?' I said, 'Thanks a lot!' But it got me thinking," The Sun quoted him, as saying.
He also believes that his charity would not offend his family or girlfriend Terri Seymour.
"Hopefully I'll be a lot older when it happens, so it won't affect them much!" he added.
