Simon Cowell Admits: I'm Dating Carmen Electra!

by at .  Updated at .

Simon Cowell often comes across as gruff as a judge on The X Factor, and we really have no idea why:

He's dating Carmen Electra!

Cowell confirmed this long-gestating rumor yesterday in an interview with good friend Ryan Seacrest, stopping short of referring to the former Playboy centerfold as his "girlfriend," but admitting:

This Is Simon Cowell

"We're people who date. She's adorable, isn't she?"

Electra and Cowell first cozied up when the former appeared as a guest judge on Britain's Got Talent in February. They were then spotted kissing a few months later in West Hollywood.

It's unclear how serious things are between the stars, though neither may be in a rush to get married:  Cowell recently ended his engagement to Mezhgan Hussainy, while Electra did the same with Rob Patterson.

She has also been married to Dennis Rodman and Dave Navarro.

At the very least, however, we need a nickname, don't we? Cowlectra? Simen? Cowell and Electra need your help, people!
