Simon Cowell and Mezhgan Hussainy: It's Sort of Over!

by at . Comments

When it comes to potential professional artists, Simon Cowell has a very clear idea of what he wants. When it comes to love? Not so much.

The singer tells UK's The Daily Mirror that he and Mezhgan Hussainy - a makeup artist he met behind the scenes of American Idol in 2003 - are no longer engaged. But are they still dating? We'll let Simon explain:

"It's quite a complicated relationship. We have had a break from each other, and we are still incredibly close," Cowell tells the newspaper. "I'm vulnerable. It's not on, it's not off, it's somewhere in the middle. I don't know if I will ever get married, but I am happy."

Hussainy has reportedly moved out of the Los Angeles mansion she shared with the music mogul - and into another home nearby where Simon's other famous ex, Teri Seymour, also stayed after she split from Cowell. Friends allegedly refer to this residence as the "girlfriends graveyard."

“I don’t pay them off," Cowell says of his history with women. "But if you have been with someone long enough, there is a ­responsibility. You can’t say one minute you can live this type of life and then the light goes off.”



M. Husseiny is too nice to be with a man that doesn't know what he wants. Life isn't only work, if it is, he must be escaping from something to fill out his days.


atleast he doesn't leave her high and dry I respect that.


simon is gay but doesn't know it, or just won't admit it. and for riley who thinks the fact that simon isn't gay because he has had this gf since 2003?? grow it! there are guys who have been married 50 YEARS and then come out of the closet!


I must respectfully disagree with Kathy Settles, who says that God is a "must" to keep a couple together. There should be some kind of spiritual component perhaps, including "God" in the traditional sense for some, but it doesn't have to be. My husband and I have been happily married for nearly 40 years and we are both agnostics. What people really need to do is grow up, have realistic expectations,and do the hard work that is sometimes required.


Take it from someone who has been married thirty six years, ONLY GOD can keep couples together through the ups and downs that this life has to offer. It is not about how you feel all the time but about covenant, commitment and unselfishness. In today's society we know nothing about these things nor sacrificial love. Only God can teach us how to live this way and to stop glamorizing marriage. Like any other relationship there must be respect and consideration but it can work if one wants it to but as I said The Lord is a MUST!


@fedstein what are you a gay expert?????? These two were together from 2003 if he was gay Mezhgan would have left him long ago!!!!!! You know instead of saying Simon isn't straight I suggest that you get your facts straight!!!!


@fedstein what are you a gay expert?????? These two were together from 2003 if he was gay Mezhgan would have left him long ago!!!!!! Get your facts straight!!!!


simon needs to admit he is gay and wants a daddy type. him and ryan seacrest of so obviously gay. even ryan's "gf" julianne thought ryan was gay! once simon admits this to himself, he will finally be able to find true love and settle down.
