Watch out, Simon Cowell may be extra grouchy this season: The American Idol judge and his longtime girlfriend have split after 6 years, People reports. Cowell’s rep said Terri Seymour, 34, “phoned Simon and finished it about six weeks ago.” The couple met when Seymour interviewed the acerbic TV judge for a British show.
“They are going to remain close friends,” Cowell’s rep added. “He understands her reason for ending it." Seymour wanted to have a family, but “that just isn’t Simon.” Cowell, 48, told the Mirror, “I don’t believe in marriage, certainly not in this business. The truth is that you get married and in a year or two they clean you out.”
