Simon Cowell has split from fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy, according to one of the music mogul’s friends.
The X Factor judge proposed to the American Idol make-up artist in 2010, but split rumors have been rife since he vacationed with a group of women without her in January of this year.
Cowell recently insisted he was confused about the romance, saying, “I’m vulnerable. It’s not on, it’s not off, it’s somewhere in the middle. I don’t know if I will ever get married, but I am happy.”
However, his pal Zeta Graff, who was with the star on the sun-soaked vacation, claims the engagement is off.
She tells Britain’s Daily Mirror, “Mezhgan was lovely but it was all too much for Simon. As soon as he hears the words ‘stability’ and ‘future’, I think it all became a bit too much.”
“She was too needy, but he did try. Simon needs a woman who isn’t defined by him, who has her own career or wealth.”
“Someone who doesn’t depend on him. But he and Mezhgan are still friends.”
