The anonymous blogger who claimed that 'Britain's Got Talent' star Ronan Parke was already signed to Simon Cowell's management company has received a police caution.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: "A 52-year-old man has accepted a caution under the Malicious Communications Act. No further action is being taken."

The man, who is said to suffer from bi-polar disorder, has apologised to Cowell and Parke for the post, adding that he had become obsessed with the show.
A Sony Music spokesperson commented: "He has admitted he has absolutely no connection with Ronan Park, 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." [Daily Mail]
