Simon Cowell reportedly had a relationship with former “X Factor” judge Dannii Minogue.
The reality show mogul admits he was “like a schoolboy” for Dannii, who he began having a sexual relationship with after she joined him on the judge’s panel of the show in 2007.
In Cowell’s unauthorized biography, “Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell”, he said, “I had a crush on her. It was Dannii’s hair, the sexy clothes, and the t**s.
“I was like a schoolboy. She was foxy. She was a real man’s girl. Very feminine. It was genuine love.”
Simon, 52, began dating Dannii after his split from Terri Seymour in 2008.
Minogue, who split from her baby-daddy Kris Smith after four years of dating, left the singing competition show in 2010.
Sources reveal by that time Simon already had his eye on his other judge, singer Cheryl Cole. She was on the judging panel from 2008 to 2010.
Simon revealed, “I would have liked an affair with Cheryl [but] I felt like a mouse being played with by a beautiful cat.”
Cowell said Cole would come visit him in his dressing room, but they didn’t have a romantic relationship.
Simon said of the singer, “She would come in dressed in her tracksuit and her slippers, drop her eyes and play the soulful victim to get around me. She played me. I adored her.”
But, things went bad between Simon and Cheryl after she was sacked after just three shows on the U.S. “X Factor” due to her strong accent.
