X Factor judge Simon Cowell and Carmen Electra were seen together in September, fueling speculation that the two are an item. Cowell has finally opened up about their relationship, telling Ryan Seacrest that she isn’t his girlfriend, but they are dating.
“She's not my girlfriend,” Cowell told On-Air With Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday.
“We're people who date. She's adorable, isn't she?” he added, reports The Huffington Post.
Cowell and Electra were first seen leaving a Hollywood restaurant in September. They worked together earlier in the year when Electra was a judge on Britain’s Got Talent, when Electra was still engaged to Rob Patterson.
There were reports last week that Cowell went on a dinner date with True Blood’s Janina Gavankar, which made it appear as if his relationship with Electra was over. Electra had told RumorFix that, “...We’re just friends baby.”
Seacrest and Cowell covered other topics, since the interview aired just before the final X Factor performance episode. Cowell spoke about L.A. Reid’s departure after this season, saying, “I’m going to miss him, because he’s a good guy, but he has to go back and run the record label.”
He also debunked rumors that Rihanna and Chris Brown were in the running to replace Reid. “That is complete rubbish, absolute rubbish,” Cowell said.
