Taking the opportunity to show off his manly 'bod and perfect his tan, Simon Cowell lounged on a balcony poolside, while enjoying a smoke in St. Barth Wednesday afternoon.
The X Factor judge is currently vacationing in the French West Indies with fellow music mogul, LA Reid, after dealing with some major drama in Barbados with current girlfriend, 80s pop star Sinitta, after the New Year.
Cowell, who used to vacation in Barbados with his former co-star onAmerican Idol, Ryan Seacrest, invited his ladylove and her kids to stay with him and his mom on on the trip this year. But once Sinitta found out Simon's ex Jackie St Claire would be joining them, she packed up her bags and jetted right back to the UK.
Fortunately, that doesn't appear to have put a damper on Simon's St. Barth trip!
