As a judge on American Idol, Simon Cowell is in control. He sits back and critiques aspiring contestants such as Andrew Garcia.
But in his personal life, the brutally honest Brit has no actual say. He may claim he's not interested in marriage, as he stated throughout his relationship with Terri Seymour, but when the true love bug bites, it doesn't let go.
Simon appears to be discovering this for the first time, as he was interviewed by Piers Morgan over the weekend for a TV show in England. Asked about new girlfriend Mezhgan Hussainy, Cowell said:
"I'm smitten with Mezhgan, I think she's the one. She's very special."
Hussainy, seen above with her man, is a make-up artist on American Idol and other hit shows. She may also be the future mother of Cowell's children.
"You know when you've found somebody very special," he said, adding: "I think I need to have little Simons around."
Whoa! Talk about a total 180!
During the interview, Hussainy sat in the back of the room, donning a $400,00 diamond ring. Asked if the couple was engaged, Simon smiled and said: "No comment."
Now we know how serious he must be. When was the last time Simon Cowell had no comment on anything?!?
