Simon's ex talks about his current fiancée

Simon Cowell’s ex-girlfriend Sinitta admits he and fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy aren’t getting together much at the moment, but that’s just the way the music mogul likes it.

Make-up artist Mezhgan, 37, is holed up at Simon’s £4 million Beverly Hills mansion, while he is busy on The X Factor in the UK.

Simon and Mezghan are spending a lot of time apart,’ says Sinitta, 42.

‘They miss each other but they’re both professional people and so many relationships are transatlantic like this now.’

Rumours continue to circulate that 51-year-old Simon has cold feet about marrying Mezhgan after he proposed earlier this year. And Sinitta says the engagement was a surprise to everyone.

‘I wasn’t even sure if it was true or not myself,’ she recalls. ‘It goes to show when he does want privacy he knows how to get it.’
