Music mogul Simon Cowell’s relaxed nature got him into trouble on “The X Factor” when he appeared to suffer an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction during the judges’ houses stage of the competition.

The 56-year-old listened to contestants while sitting between Mel B and Emma Bunton on his sofa with one leg folded up against the other.

In a picture shared on Twitter, Cowell can be seen sporting a pair of black shades, white shirt and matching pants.

But his position promoted a Twitter outburst as viewers mistook his bare toe as his private part and thought that he was wearing an unchained pant.

“Has Simon Cowell had a wardrobe malfunction or is he enjoying these auditions a bit too much,” one user wrote on the micro-blogging site.

Another one wrote: “So… Simon Cowell has had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction.”

Twitteraties didn’t stop here as one user wrote: “So nice to see ‘Little Simon’ again. Simon Cowell”.
