Terri Seymour and Simon Cowell
The "American Idol" judge has been dumped by his longtime girlfriend Terri Seymour, reports UsMagazine.com.
"They broke up about a month ago. It was Terri's idea, not Simon's," says Cowell's rep, Max Clifford. "Simon is doing alright, but they were together a long time and so you can understand that it's going to be a strange time.
"It was something that was coming, so it wasn't a shock or a surprise," Clifford adds.
The couple has been dating since 2002 and remain friends.
Seymour is a British TV presenter who also acted as a correspondent for "Extra."
When Cowell isn't sitting in judgment on "Idol," he's working on "Britain's Got Talent" and "The X-Factor."
