The Blast reports that a source revealed some inside story concerning the smoking issue to Daily Mail saying, "For her, this is a big deal. She believes his smoking has put her life in danger."

Canoe adds that California's law specifically states that employers are banned from knowingly or intentionally permitting the smoking of tobacco products in an enclosed area of employment.

This is considered a strict anti-smoking law. Simon Cowell's smoking habit isn't hidden as it once got out that the showbiz entrepreneur was facing difficulty with quitting the habit. Cowell also admitted to smoking up to 80 cigarettes a day.

While Gabrielle Union was on AGT, different issues ensued due to various events she found inappropriate. Esquire has it that the "Bring It On" actress was quite worried about a lot of things she observed on set while she judged the Talent show.

One instance was the time when a painting of Simon Cowell and his five dogs was presented to the crew and guest judge, Jay Leno had made a joke which didn't sit well with Union as she considered it racist.
