I’m sure you know Simon Cowell and long-time girlfriend Terri Seymour called it quits recently and you must be stunned at what MSNBC reported:
“Cowell is said to have given Seymour, who he dated for six years, $5 million cash and another $4.6 to buy a Beverly Hills home just before calling it quits, reports Life & Style.
‘Terri phoned Simon about six weeks ago and finished it,’ his rep told Life & Style, referring to the breakup. ‘Simon thinks the world of Terri, and that isn’t going to change. He also understands her reason for ending it.’
According to the magazine, Seymour wanted to marry and start a family, whereas Cowell recently said, “I don’t want to marry anyone, because whoever marries me will end up hating me.’”
I know Simon’s rich but nearly $10 million as a parting gift?! Come on. Yeah, she’s gorgeous, but this looks more like a payoff than a gift. If you were in love with someone enough to give her that much money, I think it would have been better to just marry her. It would have been a lot cheaper for sure. I don’t know; is it just me or is something fishy going on here?!
