Simon Cowell Dating Brazilian Socialite?

It looks like Dannii Minogue can breathe a sigh of relief, Simon Cowell has apparently found a new woman to lust after, Brazilian It Girl Ana Paula Junqueira.

The 38-year-old divorcee apparently caught Si's eye when he invited her and a group of friends to join him on a luxury yacht whilst holidaying in St Barts earlier this year.

Ana is a well-known figure in her native Brazil, following her marriage to sports equipment millionaire Johan Eliasch. She's known for her jet-setting lifestyle and it was on one of her luxury holidays that she reportedly fell for Simon's charms.

The relevation is the latest information to come from the now infamous unauthorised biography of the music mogul by Tom Bower. Since the book's publication earlier this month countless revelations about Cowell have come to light, including the claim that he once bedded fellow X Factor judge Dannii Minogue.

According to a report in The Sun, who are currently serialising the biography, Simon and Ana became close "at the end of one high-spirited night" at the St Barts yacht club. The book recalls:

"Fuelled by champagne he invited a group of Brazilian girls on to Slipstream. By 5am he was intimately embraced with Ana Paula, a well-known international socialite."

At teatime later that day, she had flown back to São Paulo on a private jet and had texted her intentions. 'She's coming to London soon', he announced. 'That should be fun', Cowell smiled."

According to the paper Cowell took Junqueira on a date to a Chinese restaurant in London on Wednesday with a source claiming:

"They keep their romance low-key. Ana is very much her own accomplished woman, Simon respects her for that."
