Simon Cowell may be the villain on American Idol, but the tough-love judge is ready to settle down. It seems Simon’s girlfriend Mezghan Hussainy has finally tamed the longtime bachelor.
As the pair left a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner in London, Mezghan was snapped wearing a serious sparkler on her left hand.
While Simon, who vowed for years that he would never marry, is denying the rumors, it does seem like he’s getting closer to walking down the aisle. He effusively discussed his new love in a recent interview with Britain’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan.
“I’m smitten with Mezghan – I think she’s the one. She’s very special,” Simon said, before adding an even more surprising comment. “I think I need to have little Simons around.”
Despite Simon’s gesture, friends say he still hasn’t made a commitment.
“It was just a gift – something romantic he bought for Mezghan for Valentine’s Day,” a source close to Simon told the Daily Mail. “ He wanted to do something special, but Simon is definitely not engaged.”
Simon’s aversion to marriage is apparently money-related, but perhaps he’s heard about a little thing called a prenup? Maybe he’s almost ready to draw up the papers and take the plunge! (Daily Mail)
