Paula Abdul Was Too Sick To Party With Simon

Paula Abdul totally skipped out on Simon Cowell’s birthday party!

The former American Idol judge was invited to help celebrate Simon’s 50th birthday at a lavish $1.5 million party in Hertfordshire, England on Saturday.

However, Abdul apparently came down with the flu and had to cancel!

Paula tweeted,

“Mama is sick. Up all night with the flu. I feel terrible. I knew I should’ve gotten the flu shot. Gotta get better… I even had a funny surprise in store for him. Not making it to the party after all. Dr. said no way. I’m bummed (but) I’ll survive.”

Since when does she call herself “mama?”
