* ABDUL 'SHOCKED AND SADDENED' BY DEATH OF ALLEGED IDOL CONTESTANT The death of an alleged former AMERICAN IDOL contestant whose body was found near PAULA ABDUL's home on Tuesday (11Nov08) night has left the star shocked and saddened, according to her publicist. Police found the body of a woman in a parked car in Abdul's Sherman Oaks, California neighbourhood - and pronounced her dead at the scene. The car is registered to 30-year-old Paula Goodspeed - who featured as a contestant on the U.S. reality TV series in 2006. Reports claim the woman's parents phoned police earlier in the day to report their daughter missing, stating that she had an unnatural obsession with the American Idol host. According to TMZ.com, police sources claimed the woman was an alleged Abdul stalker and that officers had been to the singer's house numerous times before to deal with her. A spokesperson for Abdul tells Entertainment Tonight the star knew about the woman, who she said had issues for several years. Abdul was reportedly returned home late in the evening after investigators had cleared the scene. A statement from the Abdul reads: I am deeply shocked and saddened at what transpired yesterday. My heart and prayers go out to her family. In a statement from the Los Angeles Police Department, officer April Harding says, This has been ruled an apparent suicide and the coroner's office is now investigating. The body was found around 6 p.m. Tuesday. Police have not confirmed the identity of the woman.

* 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.
