Simon Cowell reveals Mezhgan Hussainy engagement was ‘big mistake’

The latest revelations from the Simon Cowell book won't impress his ex-fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy.

This weekend, it was reported Simon Cowell confessed to an affair with Dannii Minogue, tried but failed to seduce Natalie Imbruglia, and was obsessed with Cheryl Cole.

The latest extract from 'Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell' by Tom Bower serialised in The Sun claims Simon Cowell admitted his engagement to Mezhgan Hussainy was 'a big mistake'.

The 52-year-old told friends he split from 39-year-old Mezhgan Hussainy after a series of arguments, confessing: "I'm a hopeless boyfriend".

Simon Cowell did give Mezhgan Hussainy something to remember him by though: a £5million house.

The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent boss insisted that he didn't blame Mezhgan Hussainy, saying: "I'm attracted to crazy women. I encourage crazy behaviour and I make them crazy.

"I'm attracted to certain personalities who are difficult to control. So there are tantrums, tears and fights, which is all part of the drama. My life is really odd.

"Every girl wants to be number one and they're very territorial. I like the fight, because otherwise I'd have a dull group of girlfriends."

Simon Cowell and Mezhgan Hussainy got engaged after he proposed on Valentine's Day 2010 with a £250,000 ring, but once their relationship turned sour Simon moved into a hotel.

We're eagerly awaiting even more revelations from the book. Simon Cowell, on the other hand, sounds worried. He tweeted: "Just seen the TV ad for the unauthorised book on me. Yikes!"
