'American Idol's' Simon Cowell and Mezhgan Hussainy are engaged
Citing "multiple insiders," Us Weekly says it's confirmed that Cowell and Mezhgan Hussainy, a makeup artist on the FOX juggernaut, will be tying the knot. This just nine days after the magazine debunked a story that Cowell had popped the question.
The confirmation doesn't come from Cowell himself, though; his rep tells the magazine, "Simon does not discuss his private life."
Cowell dated "Extra" correspondent Terri Seymour for several years, but after they broke up, he brought the 36-year-old Hussainy as his date to his 50th birthday party in London last fall. His publicist and friend Max Clifford told Us last week that while Cowell denied he and Hussainy were engaged, they were definitely "an item."
