* COWELL'S MUM URGES SON TO REKINDLE ROMANCE WITH SEYMOUR LATEST: SIMON COWELL's mother has blamed the music mogul for the breakdown of his relationship with longterm girlfriend TERRI SEYMOUR - and is urging the pair to give their romance one last try. The couple dated for more than six years, but Seymour is alleged to have dumped Cowell two months ago (Sep08) over his refusal to marry and settle down. And now the American Idol judge's mum Julie is praying her son will come to his senses. She says, Everyone in our family loves her. She's like part of the family and always will be. At the end of the day, Simon doesn't want a family and I think that's got a lot to do with it. She's a lovely girl... I'm hoping they'll get back together. Seymour reportedly called off their romance after tiring of Cowell's dedication to his work - which would see him spend months abroad while she stayed at their Hollywood home. She is also alleged to be fed up of Cowell spending so much time with his ex-lovers, former model Jackie Sinclair and singer Sinitta, who he has recruited to help him spot talent on his U.K. reality show The X Factor. A source tells Britain's Sunday Mirror newspaper, Seeing different women hang off your boyfriend's arm when you're thousands of miles apart is so hard... She was fed up with him hanging out with the same old (people) in L.A. In London, Jackie was always around, particularly at the start of their relationship, as was Sinitta. Like any woman Terri wanted to feel special. Cowell's representative, PR guru Max Clifford, has confirmed the couple's split, but insists they have parted amicably. He says, Terri ended it in late summer. They are going to remain close friends. He understands her reason for ending it. Nobody else is involved, certainly not on Simon's side.

* HUDSON MURDER SUSPECT ARRESTED, STAR'S NEPHEW STILL MISSING LATEST: Police have arrested a suspect in the double shooting of singer/actress JENNIFER HUDSON's mother and brother - but the star's seven-year-old nephew who was taken from the scene of the crime is still missing. Authorities took William Balfour, who was once married to the actress' sister Julia, into police custody on Friday (24Oct08) after the victims were found gunned down in their Chicago, Illinois home earlier in the day. Neighbours allegedly heard gunshots between 8am and 9am local time on the south side of the city, but emergency services weren't contacted until 3pm, when another relative, believed to be Hudson's cousin, discovered the star's 57-year-old mum Darnell Donnerson shot in the head in the living room. Officers subsequently found the body of Jason Hudson, 29, who had died from bullet wounds to the chest, in an upstairs bedroom. Police launched a child abduction alert after quizzing Balfour, 27, over the whereabouts of Julia's missing son Julian King, according to FOX News' Chicago affiliate. Balfour has not been charged with any offence as WENN goes to press, but police spokeswoman Monique Bond said the deaths appeared to be connected to domestic abuse. Hudson, whose song Spotlight is currently number one on the U.S. Hip-hop charts, shot to fame after appearing on U.S. TV talent show American Idol. In 2007 she went on to win an Academy Award for best supporting actress for her role in Dreamgirls.

* DIOGUARDI'S SHOCK AT IDOL CALL-UP New AMERICAN IDOL judge KARA DIOGUARDI was so surprised to be offered the job that she nearly fell off her chair. The music producer was stunned to be given the post, but insists she will add to the chemistry of the TV talent show. And she is determined to get on with her fellow judges - including Paula Abdul, with whom she collaborated on Kylie Minogue's hit Spinning Around. Speaking about the moment she was offered the role, DioGuardi says, I almost fell off the chair and adds that she hopes to create a new chemistry as well as keeping the old. And asked how she felt about judging wannabe pop stars, she says, I'm a little nervous. I'm going to be a straight shooter and say it like I see it and maintain that philosophy. I'm somebody who's really honest and gives an opinion. If I feel I need to be hard, I will be. And if I feel I need to be more nurturing, I will be.
