Although Simon Cowell was rumored to be dating Carmen Electra, it seems as if he’s moved on to someone new.
The X Factor creator and judge was spotted out with True Blood star Janina Gavankar on Saturday night, where they enjoyed a dinner date at West Hollywood’s Cecconi’s restaurant.
However, Electra, a guest judge on X Factor UK, told Rumor Fix she and Cowell are “just friends.”
“He’s very intelligent. I respect that. He’s a good businessman and has been a really good person,” she also said.
Last month, Cowell flirted with Gavankar on Twitter, writing “@Janina hello trouble. Simon. X.”
She then tweeted back “@SimonCowell ...who me?? #DefinitelyMe,” and he replied, “@Janina yes you. X.”
@janina yes you. X

Earlier this year Cowell, 53, called off his engagement to makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy.
