One night stands can be dangerous, dangerous things, and we’re not talking about communicable diseases that can often be a byproduct of them, either. Acid-tongued ‘X Factor‘ judge Simon Cowell hooked up with a woman he met at a Hollywood nightclub last October, brought her home and awoke to find that she made off with his computer and loads of cash. What a headache that must have been for Cowell!

TMZ reports that Cowell met the shady lady at a club called Drai. The two had a little fun and come morning, he was missing key items for his security wired house. He called the cops and footage from the scene helped authorities track the sticky fingered woman down. She returned the computer and the wallet. The cash? Well, that’s another story. That was not returned. Cheap lesson, right?

Cowell recently split with fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy but sources say that the couple ended their relationship before the one night stand-theft combo.

There’s always some sort o’ drama when it comes to Cowell. At least a spot of cash was all he lost in this mess.
