Simon Cowell dumped his fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy because she was 'too clingy', his pal Zeta Graff has claimed.
The 42-year-old, who insists she's "just friends" with the X Factor boss, claims that Simon will continue to remain single.
“Mezhgan was lovely but it was all too much for Simon," Zeta told the Daily Mirror. "As soon as he hears the words ‘stability’ and ‘future’, I think it all became a bit too much.”
She continued: “She was too needy, but he did try. Simon needs a woman who isn’t defined by him, who has her own career or wealth.
“Someone who doesn’t depend on him. But he and Mezhgan are still friends.”
Zeta, who met Simon in 2004, added to the tabloid: “Simon is single and gets offers from women everywhere he goes – but he doesn’t act on it.
"He might flirt with me but that’s Simon. We’re definitely just friends. There is no one serious in his life at the moment.”
