As previously reported by celebrity gossip websites, Carmen Electra is now going out with Simon Cowell, who split from fiancée Mezghan Hussainy earlier this year. Neither the British TV personality nor the super hot actress and model have confirmed the rumors, though.

When asked about her rumored romance with the notoriously mean and oftentimes obnoxious “X Factor” judge during an appearance on “Access Hollywood Life,” Electra said:

“He’s so cute. He is adorable. He’s actually a sweetheart… The thing is, we worked together on Britain’s Got Talent. I was a guest judge and I had so much fun. I really liked him. I think he’s really cool.”

She added:

“Now, obviously, he’s in town with X Factor and we started to hang out and we became friends… I think he’s a great guy.”

When asked pointblank if she and Simon had ever “kissed” or gotten into a “horizontal situation,” Carmen coyly responded:

“Maybe!”

But the former “Baywatch” star still tried (but not too hard) to dispel the rumors that they are dating. She said:

“We are friends! As Simon would say.”

Do you think they’re dating?
