American Idol‘s acid-tongued judge,Â Simon Cowell, has found love! It seems the Brit is engaged to makeup artist (and girlfriend of over a year), Mezhgan Hussainy. Keep reading for all the details on her massive engagement ring (estimated at just under a million bucks!)…
Simon Cowell, the sourpuss judge onÂ American Idol, has been singing a very different tune in recent weeks, due no doubt to his romantic love life. The Brit has been dating makeup artist,Â Mezhgan Hussainy, for over a year now, although the couple just recently went public with their relationship. The pair met on the set ofÂ American Idol seven years ago and it seems they are now prepared to become husband and wife.
Hussainy was spotted this weekend sporting a massive diamond engagement ring on her left ring finger. Although Cowell’s rep refuses to comment on theÂ American Idol star’s personal life, the ring seems to be evidence enough that this couple is heading to the altar. As if that’s not enough, Hussainy herself reportedly confirmed the news to RadarOnline.
Friends of the couple seem elated at the match.Â â€œThey are very suited,â€Â Simon Cowell‘s publicist, Max Clifford said. â€œShe is someone who is independent and says what she thinks and feels, and he likes that. He’s probably the happiest I have ever known him in the nine years I’ve been working with him.”Â Simon Cowell himself has gushed to the press recently about his relationship with Hussainy calling her “The One.” Apparently, he decided to make it official by proposing with a massive (and expensive) diamond engagement ring.
“I never would have peggedÂ Simon Cowell to be a guy that spends so much money on a woman. But he sure did well! The brilliant cut diamond engagement ring is approximately six carats and an estimated $750,000. You can see that the clarity and color is nothing less than perfect,” David Mamane, celebrity jeweler, says.
One person who is happy about the relationship? Mother of the groom!Â Simon Cowell‘s mom recently called HussainyÂ ”absolutely lovely” and says her son has done a “complete turnaround” since their relationship began.
