Personal life

By 2006 the British newspaper “News of the World” reported that Simon had cheated on her with Jasmine Lennard who is a model, they also printed photos of her leaving his home. Both Cowel l and Lennard denied it and they both were in relationships at the time and said that it was a business meeting. In 2008 it was said that they had broken up due to the fact Simon was unwilling to settle down and have children. Terri Seymour apparently told close friends that things just weren’t working out anymore between her and Simon. It was said that he bought a house as a break-up gift. They have remained friends as they are seen at events such as the finale of “American Idol” seventh season. In May of 2009 she was attacked by Janice Thibodeaux a 33-year-old female.
