Simon Cowell, Max Clifford, American Idol and Terri Seymour at The X Factor - Tuesday 19th December 2006

* 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.
