Simon Cowell, who recently split with longtime girlfriend, has sparked reports that he had given 9 million parting gift. Both Simon Cowell and Terri Seymourâ€™s camps have been referring to their recent split as amicable but the question still remains: why $9 million goodbye gift is involved?
The “American Idol” judge was believed to have given Terri 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, according to a report.
His representative previously revealed on the recent split: “Terri phoned Simon about six weeks ago and finished it. Simon thinks the world of Terri, and that isnâ€™t going to change. He also understands her reason for ending it.”
According to the magazine, Terri Seymour wanted to marry and start a family, whereas Cowell recently said, â€œI donâ€™t want to marry anyone, because whoever marries me will end up hating me.â€
As for the pile of money Seymour reportedly received: a representative for Cowell simply added: “This isnâ€™t the kind of thing he usually comments about.”
