A 52-year-old man has accepted a police caution over making up claims again Britain's Got Talent finalist Ronan Parke and Simon Cowell's record label Syco. In a statement released by Scotland Yard today, the spokesperson confirmed that "no further action" would be taken on the matter.
The original posting had alleged that the show was fixed for Ronan after he was ‘groomed’ for stardom by Simon Cowell’s Syco company for two years. It also made crude personal slurs about the 12-year-old, who was eventually named runner-up to Jai McDowall in last month’s final.
A spokesperson commented today: "We can confirm that a 52-year-old man has accepted a caution under the Malicious Communications Act. There is no further police action."
Meanwhile a spokesperson for Sony Music, parent company of Syco said: "A man has now admitted responsibility for the wholly untrue blogs relating to Ronan Parke and the false allegations against Britain's Got Talent, Sony Music and Syco.
"He has admitted he has absolutely no connection with Ronan Parke, Sony Music, Syco, or Britain's Got Talent. He has apologised both via the police and directly to those involved and the matter will not be taken further."
Sony Music chairman Ged Doherty added: "I'd like to thank the Metropolitan Police for their assistance in bringing closure to this matter."
