Simon Cowell still gives exes money

Music mogul Simon Cowell still dishes out his millions to his former lovers so they don't feel "cut off" after enjoying his lavish way of living for so long.

The X Factor boss is currently engaged to make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy, but he has previously enjoyed romances with pop star Sinitta, TV host Terri Seymour and Jackie St Clair.

Simon Cowell is still close pals with his former lovers and the star admits he still hands over money to some of his exes to make them "happy".

He tells Weekend magazine, "Not all of them, that's quite rare. Probably (more than one ex-girlfriend) yeah. You can't have somebody in your life who's become accustomed to a certain thing, and just because you don't want to be in the relationship any more say to them, no ­everything is cut off.

"It's not alimony. It's, I believe, doing the right thing. That comes back to me wanting them to be happy, you just can't do it too many times."
