more Simon and Mezghan after the hop…

However, according to, Mezghan worked as a makeup artist on American Idol several years ago and the two became friends. Which, to be quite honest is shocking, can you imagine Simon befriending a makeup artist?

Simon recently told Piers Morgan in a T.V. interview:

“I’m smitten with Mezghan, I think she’s the one,” he said. “She’s very special … You know when you’ve found somebody very special. He also said he is open to parenthood. ”I think I need to have little Simons around,” he remarked.

Those “little Simons” will certainly lead a charmed life. Cowell raked in $75 million last year.
