Music mogul-turned-TV star Simon Cowell always travels by private jet because he refuses to give up cigarettes for commercial flights, according to his former co-worker Danni Minogue.

The Australian singer worked with Cowell on his U.K. TV talent show "The X Factor," and she reveals her former boss spends a fortune on private travel just so he can smoke.
Minogue even insists Cowell won't travel as far as Australia because of his habit.

She tells Britain's The Sun, "He has that whole thing where he hates flying -- and there's the smoking thing. That's why he has to go on a private jet -- so he can smoke. He's like, 'I can't get a private jet to Australia, but I can't do the non-smoking thing either.'"
