Simon Cowell sold his six-bedroom mansion in London amid fears for his family’s safety.

The 6-bedroom residence in Kensington was sold for £15 million (about $19 million).
Cowell’s home has been burgled and was the center of a break-in plot exposed by a newspaper.

Simon Cowell sold his luxury London residence amid fears about his family’s safety.

A representative for lender Cohort Capital told Insider that “The X Factor” judge had sold his mansion in Kensington, west London, for £15 million (about $19 million), just four business days after it went on the market.

Cohort Capital, a real estate private equity firm, provided a £5.5 million ($7 million) loan to the buyer, whose new neighbors will include Ed Sheeran and David Beckham. Cowell previously lived in the property with his partner Lauren Silverman and their son Eric.

“Given the current turbulent market conditions, time is of the essence more than ever in the luxury real estate sector, and we’re delighted to have been able to close this deal in less than a week,” said Cohort Capital founder Matt Thame in a statement.

Cohort Capital disputed reports that the asking price had been reduced by £30 million.

Representatives for Cowell did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider.

The “America’s Got Talent” personality’s time living in the home was marred by burglaries and attempted break-ins.

In 2015, a thief stole jewelry worth about $1.3 million from the residence in an incident that left Cowell in “constant fear” for his safety, a court heard two years later.

In 2012 a woman wielding a broken brick broke in when Cowell was at home and was arrested, the Press Association reported.

In June, Cowell thanked The Sun newspaper after it alerted him to an alleged plot to break into his home using a lock decoder. According to the report it was masterminded by the media mogul’s former security consultants.
