Simon Cowell & Terri Seymour broke up over infidelity & marriage wait

American Idol judge Simon Cowell and his girlfriend of over five years, TV presenter Terri Seymour, have broken up over cheating rumors and Simon’s refusal to get married, claims the National Enquirer. 33 year-old Terri was hoping that Simon, 48, would marry her eventually and have children. After hanging around waiting and hearing rumors that he’d been cheating with other women, she decided that she’d had enough and called it quits. Terri moved out of the mansion they shared and now has her own house. They managed to break up under the radar, and sources say that Simon wants Terri back but that he’s not about to change his roving ways and marry her:

The couple’s secret split came after several reports that Simon had cheated. In 2006, a British publication reported that Simon was seeing model and sociality Jasmine Lennard.

Then last summer, The Enquirer revealed Teri was rattled by rumors that Simon was fooling around with a woman associated with “American Idol.”

Simon wants Terri back, and some insiders say he may be able to talk his way out of trouble again. But the friend added he’s going to have a tough time because “Terri felt that if Simon wasn’t going to settle down by now, it was never going to happen.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, April 28, 2008]

You can tell that Simon is a big flirt, and although the British press is notorious for making up stories he definitely could have cheated. The woman he was said to have cheated with in the summer of 2006 was photographed leaving his home in the morning at a time when Terri was away. Simon has been very outspoken about not wanting a family, and Terri told People Magazine last year that she rarely talks to him about children and when she did bring it up he told her to buy a turtle. She said it didn’t bother her at the time, but that she did want children eventually. It’s not like she was going to get anywhere by hanging around waiting. If she has her own house now they probably have broken up, but we’ll have to see if they make any appearances together or any kind of statement about it.

Simon Cowell and Terri Seymour are shown at the TV Guide Emmy Party on 9/16/07, thanks to Splash News.

    Move on Terri. He is getting too old to have a child and be there for it down the road. Also can you imagine the self esteem issues he would create for a child living with his tongue. Ouch!

  2. headache says:

    She is a silly woman. The man has stated for years that he does not want to marry or have children and with his personality, I’m having a hard time believing any woman would think he would make a good father.

    She was in some serious denial.

  3. geronimo says:

    What is it with these women, thinking these men (Clooney’s another one) will change their minds when they’ve done nothing but stated, honestly, that they’re not the marrying or the fatherhood types?

  4. JustSaying says:

    Terri here is some ‘Mommy’ theology for you: If a man says he doesn’t want you any more, BELIEVE HIM. If a many says he doesn’t want to marry you, BELIEVE HIM. If a man says he doesn’t want to have children with you BELIEVE HIM.

    Against that backdrop, Terry girl, get to stepping and move on so you can have your dreams.

  5. Syko says:

    I agree, silly to stay with him when he’s made it perfectly clear he does not want a family. And it would be terrible for him to have a family he doesn’t want. She should just be grateful he was honest about it, and move on to someone with the same goals as she has.

  6. mollination says:

    I’m okay with not having kids, simon 🙂

  7. Kaila says:

    I was confused who is the woman associated with American Idol. I’m thinking that it was Paula huh?! 8)

  8. Iggie says:

    Terri Girl, You’re way to classie for the likes of Simon Cowell, and….who want a man who has bigger breasts then you do?
    Eewwww!! Kick him to the curb & thank your lucky stars you got away!!:

  9. susie says:

    Simon is a hoot, but Terri give him the boot !!

  10. Ash says:

    Hello!Paula, I hope you’re awake dear and are taking this in…now’s your chance! And Simon, wake up gorgeous she sits next to you for countless hours every week! Duh! Any idiot can see that! 😆

  11. jorga says:

    I want to know if Simon Cowell was broke in the last 10 years…and how he made a comback…..

  12. sarah says:

    LOL! go buy a turtle? Simon is AWESOME!

  13. Tempe says:

    The last laugh…

    It is now a month later and, yes, Terri and Simon are still together. And, yes, yet another example of the Nat’l. Enquirer’s complete lack of credibility. Their motto must be “all the news that’s fit to print… and anything else we feel like making up as we go along”!
    😆 😆

  14. Monic says:

    Well, it’s about time they broke up! 😀 If Simon isn’t as phobic as he is when it comes to being a ladies’ man, he SHOULD go out with Paula by now. Heck, he should have been going out with Paula 7 years ago. 🙂 If he doesn’t see this opportunity to ask her out, screw him then.

  15. davida michaels says:

    Simon should get rid of her, I have had 1st hand experience dealing with Terri and she is the rudest thing I have ever encountered, just an awful person. She is getting a little long in the tooth also, Simon can do much better.

  16. strawbrryfields says:

    yeah wtv. bt since they broke up. cn i hv hm instead lol 😀

  17. Dear Terri first of all I told you so then You were always alone anyways.Simon was a drag left you alone all the time.I saw you and spent more time when I worked for you than he did?You were a bit bitchy at times and hard to get along with but he was the shits.We talked alot and just as I split with my ex wife Ester,I knew you would dump him.To bad it was lter than earlier but better later than never? Be sweet and move on.Cheers/Paul

  18. jayown says:

    may be something happened in his life thats y he dont want any commitment !!!!

  19. Julie says:

    I think simon could do a lot better than Terri. He should give it a shot with Paula Abdul because I think that they are a better match. But I think people should just shut up and leave Simon to get on with his life- how would you like it, if someone was saying you were an idiot. I love you Simon. I will always be on your side and the rest of Scotland is too!! 🙂 😛

  20. Judy Decker says:

    I don’t have to have marriage Simon,I will get the turtle!!!!

    Just to be in the same house and seperate bedrooms would be okay too Simon..tee hee

    Heck,I’d even sleep in the garage for a day .. I just love your personality, how about just 1 date Simon? Innocent of course, as I am married, so you can’t have me, and I already asked my husband he understands my fixation on you… He likes you too but not in the same way of course!!Let’s have dinner, like I could really eat food looking at you huh?
    Tell you what Simon if you come to Ocala Fl. I will cook you the best spaghetti and meatballs you ever had okay fair enough?

    email me Simon
    oh cmon Simon, you know you want to..

    P.S… Simon, I read your book and I want to know ,did you get a spanking for telling your brother there was no Santa Claus???

  21. Gem says:

    poor terry, simon needs to get a grip, who will continue his legacy, he can’t take it with him/

  22. Pam Ellis says:

    I think Simon could make a terrific Dad, their have been many men feel that children wasn’t in their plan,but when it happen that child became the most importan thing in the world to them and I think with the right person like Paula A.

  23. Thomas Anderson says:

    Terri Seymour is a nutcase. Totally unable to take care of herself, has panic attacks, and is a totally weird person.

  24. Sarah Lawson says:

    Then he meets a woman a few months after her and states on the TV that he’s engaged and wants children with another woman, so Terri must be feeling really used and cheated.

  25. JP says:

    If you have ever met your soulmate or the “one,” then you’d understand what happened to Simon–when you meet the right person you just *know* and you are ready to marry and be with him or her right away. I and my hubby knew on our first date that we were meant to be together, and within 9 months we were engaged. If you and your sign. other are not moving forward within a few years, it’s usually a sign to move on. If more people waited to find the one, there’d be fewer divorces and unhappy marriages! Obviously, Terri and he were not meant to be together. She should be grateful she broke up with him because now she’s free to find the One for her.

  26. Rico says:

    This chick is so completely untalented and worthless as an interviewer / reporter. Even her looks, while most men might think she is attractive – somehow she is revolting. Ish, please fade away Terri

  27. Venefica Delirium says:

    Wow, this post is three years old.

    Come on people, there are people on here far more worthy of being taken the piss out of than this…lady, who people only knew about because she dated Simon Cowell.

    @Rico: She hasn’t been in the public eye apparently long enough for you to go out of your way to revive a three year old thread to wish her away. Yeah, makes sense to me. Go back to cutting eyes out of photos.

    @Thomas Anderson: Because she has panic attacks, that makes her a “weirdo”? Wow, I certainly don’t come on here to whiteknight celebrities/celebrity partners, but your reasoning for why you’ve come out of the woodwork two years later just to call this woman a “freak” reveals that you may have some issues.
