Simon Cowell makes a lot more from American Idol than Paula Abdul like more than 5X according to Scoop. Simon reportedly makes $36 and Paula Abdul is to make between $5-8 million. And you know she is not going to like it, especially when she finds out just how much more he makes.

“Paula knew that Simon was getting paid more, but she never imagined it was this much more,” says a source who works with Abdul. “This could really put her in a bad way.”

“She has a lot of concerns with feeling appreciated," says the source. "First, they bring in another judge (Kara DioGuardi) and now it’s ridiculously obvious that she’s getting pennies compared to Simon. If you thought she had reason to run late to the set now, imagine what the future may hold. I kind of feel for the assistants who are going to be made responsible for getting her on set on time. It’s always a challenge, but now? I don’t want to think about it.”

As for why there’s such a salary discrepancy, Lythgoe told an Australian newspaper it’s because “it is believed (Cowell) brings more to the table.”

In Simon's defense he is the show and he is the one Judge I can't live without. That and he also is one of the producers of the show. I think he is worth getting more than her, but I don't think anyone needs a $36 million salary.
I hate to be Simon when he has to do salary negotiations with her!
