A representative for Simon Cowell has confirmed the TV star is still “as close as ever” with his fiancee following reports of a split.
The X Factor boss sparked speculation over the state of his relationship with Mezhgan Hussainy during a candid interview with American radio host Howard Stern earlier this month by saying he was “not sure” if he was still engaged to the make-up artist.

Cowell later insisted he regretted his comments, but refused to elaborate on his relationship status and rumors of a break-up were fueled when he was allegedly spotted on a date with a mystery brunette.

However, the music mogul’s spokesperson Max Clifford has now come forward to clear up the reports, insisting Cowell and Hussainy are still together.

Clifford says, “This British brunette is such a mystery, even Simon doesn’t know who she is. I’m afraid there is no truth in it. It’s nonsense.

“I have spoken to Simon today about this tale and there is no mystery woman. Simon and Mezhgan are as close as ever.”
