Britney Spears shouldn't look to Simon Cowell for sympathy. The acid-tongued "American Idol" judge says he "couldn't care less" about the beleaguered singer.

 Speaking to a London newspaper about Britney and fellow rehabbing singer Robbie Williams, Simon Cowell said "This whole thing is a total indulgence. We've allowed these people to feel sorry for themselves. I don't know what's going on in Britney's head but my attitude is I couldn't care less. She should go back and live with her mum for six months."

Britney Spears is currently receiving treatment at a substance abuse clinic in Malibu, California.
