Things are definitely going well for X Factor star Simon Cowell. His show’s doing well and his creation of One Direction has all the tween girls going crazy. And if all that’s not enough, Simon’s dating Carmen Electra!
Simon Cowell has been pretty quiet about his love life lately, but that all changed during a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest. When asked about his current relationship status, Simon famous let slip that he had been seeing former Playboy model Carmen Electra for some time now.
Although the two are frequently spotted out and about, Simon insisted that the relationship is limited to dating — at least for now.”She’s not my girlfriend. We’re people who date. She’s adorable, isn’t she?”
Adorable must be the go-to description for this supposedly just dating couple. While chatting with Access Hollywood in November, Carmen used that very word to describe the usually ticked off Simon. “He’s so cute. He’s adorable, he’s actually a sweetheart. I really like him, I think he’s very cool.”
Simon and Carmen have quite a few things in common, including spots on the judging panel for Britain’s Got Talent and recently broken engagements. Carmen had been engaged to Robert Patterson for four years, while Simon recently broke off a two-year engagement with makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy. Simon’s been linked to plenty of other women in the past, including Danii Minogue and Sinitta. Given his penchant for casual affairs, it only makes sense that he’d be dating Carmen without labeling her his girlfriend.
