Talk about The X Factor! It sure does pay to date Simon Cowell. According to sources, the FOX reality star is taking the blame for his recent break-up with Mezhgan Hussainy, and to make up for it, he’s giving her an $8 million mansion. But this isn’t the first time Cowell’s paid an ex big bucks after ending the relationship. Keep reading for all the details.
Sad about losing your fiancee? Maybe an $8 million mansion will make you feel a little better.
That seems to be Simon Cowell’s strategy when it comes to his major break-ups.
After their split in 2008, the ex-American Idol judge reportedly gave Extra host Terri Seymour a mansion worth a cool $5 million, plus a lump sum rumored to be somewhere in the millions.
Now, friends say that Cowell’s back at it, giving former fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy a mansion valued at $8 million.
What’s with all the houses?
TheSun.com reports that Simon has admitted, “I’m a hopeless boyfriend,” and that the women in his life — at least these two in particular — deserve the gifts for putting up with everything that comes with dating him.
Wow! Forget reality singing competitions. How about a show where Simon teaches other guys his dating philosophy…and then gives them the millions of dollars they’ll need to pay-off all of their exes.
What do you think about Simon Cowell’s “parting gifts”? Do you think he’s hiding something and trying to keep the women quiet, or he’s just genuinely bad at relationships, and knows it?
