London: Simon Cowell’s fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy has rubbished rumours that she and the media mogul have split.
Friends of the music mogul say he has become increasingly cool towards his relationship with the make-up artist and one close confidante even revealed it was ‘definitely over’.
But Hussainy has denied the rumours.
“I still love him and he says he still loves me and we are still engaged – as far as I know,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
“Of course I miss him. It’s not easy being apart and even one day apart is hard when you are in love. But he’s got his work in England and I’ve got my work here in Los Angeles,” she added.
The 37-year-old said she was aware of speculation that the couple has broken up.
“I don’t know where these stories are coming from. It’s as if when you’re engaged you can’t spend a moment apart or people think you’ve broken up,” she said.
“That’s nonsense. We are still in love and still planning on getting married. I am still living here as you can see,” Hussainy added.
One friend said Hussainy would move out of the 11,500 sq ft mansion, just off the Sunset Strip, once Cowell returned to Hollywood.
“I doubt you will see them out together again. When he next goes over to LA, she won’t be there,” the friend said.
Cowell’s mother, Julie, whom he once described as ‘the one woman in the world I am closest to’, appeared to confirm the split, saying, “It’s a break at the moment. The problem with Simon is that he works too hard. I think the engagement was too quick.”
