Simon Cowell: Dannii 'affair' was 'genuine love'

Monday April 16, 2012

Simon Cowell has apparently admitted to enjoying a romance with his X Factor colleague Dannii Mingoue.

The explosive claims come from his unofficial biography, Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life Of Simon Cowell, written by journalist Tom Bower.

"I had a crush on her. It was Dannii's hair, the sexy clothes," the 52-year-old mogul reveals in the memoir.

"I was like a schoolboy. She was foxy. She was a real man's girl. Very feminine. It was genuine love."

Mum-of-one Dannii – who recently split with boyfriend Kris Smith – has refused to comment on the reports.

Simon made light of his comments on his Twitter page, writing: "Just seen the TV ad for the unauthorised book on me. Yikes!"
