Simon Cowell and Carmen Electra were spotted on a dinner date in West Hollywood this weekend, sparking rumors that the two are a couple.
In Touch magazine first reported that the two were at Cecconi's for an intimate dinner date over the weekend.
“They were really into each other,” a witness told the magazine. “At one point, they were talking real close, and he leaned in and kissed her. They started making out!”
As the two left the restaurant, they didn’t hide from the paparazzi. They were posing for pictures as they climbed into their car.
A source for The Daily Mail, though, downplayed the nature of the dinner, claiming that it was with a group.
“Simon and a group of around eight friends had dinner at Cecconi's on Saturday night,” the source said.
Electra and Cowell were first linked in February, shortly after he hired the Scary Movie star as a Britain’s Got Talent judge. The Daily Mail reports that they were inseparable during auditions and annoyed the other judges with their flirting.
In May, Electra, 40, and musician Rob Patterson called off their four-year engagement and Cowell, 53, has never married. He was engaged to Mezhgan Hussainy for two years before calling it off, reports The New York Daily News.
Cowell once explained why he picked Electra for BGT, saying, “She has the best set of... teeth I have ever seen.”
He is currently a judge of the US version of The X Factor, which airs on Fox on Wednesdays.
