Cowell: 'Terri's still my idol'
09:30 20 January 2005
Simon Cowell has blasted reports he is splitting up with his girlfriend.
The 'American Idol' judge slammed rumours he was set to break off his two-year romance with former model Terri Seymour.
Speaking on 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' he said: "Terri and I are still together. But according to the papers we have split up about 200 times.
"We have just enjoyed a fantastic holiday in Barbados. But people are jealous of Terri's success and think she is getting that only by being with me."
Last weekend, it was claimed that stunning Terri had allegedly threatened to kill herself if the millionaire record boss broke off their relationship.
However, friends of the acid-tongued TV host claim reports that the couple were set to split were accurate - because 31-year-old Terri has had enough of Simon's alleged unfaithfulness.
One source said: "Stories of their split are not that far from the truth.
"Terri has put up with a lot. There have been lots of other women."
