When Simon Cowell leaves American Idol at the end of this season, he'll be walking away from more than a job. According to sources close to the show, the acerbic judge has found love on the set of the Fox series, and has been dating behind-the-scenes makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy since 2008! Cowell, 50, and Hussainy, 36, reportedly met on the set in 2003, but didn't start seeing each other until Cowell ended his relationship with Terri Seymour.
So, what's the word on Cowell's new girlfriend? Well, when she's not making Idol faces look their best, Hussainy works on So You Think You Can Dance and sells her own makeup line on QVC. The beauty also made appearances on The Bold and The Beautiful and Sunset Beach.
The couple was spotted having dinner together this past weekend, but when asked about the relationship, a rep for Cowell denied there was anything romantic going on.
"As far as I know, they are just friends and have been for sometime," Max Clifford told E! News.
