Simon Cowell has a long list of lady conquests including the likes of Mezghan Hussainy, Jasmine Lennard and Sinitta. However, the music mogul’s romance with a relatively unknown actress, Danielle Delaney, has never been talked about until now.
In an updated version of Tim Bower’s bestselling unauthorized biography of the “X Factor” guru titled “Sweet- The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell”, it is claimed that 52-year-old Simon Cowell enjoyed a clandestine romance with actress Danielle Delaney.
The pair first met at a Los Angeles movie screening back in 2002, but Cowell, who was dating TV presenter Terri Seymour at the time, had nothing to offer Danielle except a harmless friendship. According to the Sunday Mirror, after he split from Terri in 2008, the music boss approached the brunette beauty at a Midsummer Night's Dream-themed party hosted by Playboy boss Hugh Hefner.
According to reports, the pair kissed in front of the whole party and Danielle stayed at the star's Beverly Hills home for the night. A source said, “She had an amazing night with Simon. She described him as an amazing kisser and said he really knew how to treat a lady. They had a good chemistry together and what they enjoyed was just good clean fun. She was saying how he made her feel like a princess.”
Although Danielle had a “monster crush” on Simon Cowell, the pair only dated a “handful” of times since their evening together. A friend said, “She was desperate for the relationship to become more serious, and still is. To her, Simon is the sexiest man on the planet.”
The TV mogul has gained a Casanova status in showbiz, as he recently revealed he had a secret affair with fellow “X Factor” judge Dannii Minogue. According to The Sun, he admitted he fell in love with the 4-year-old star when they worked on the show. He confessed, “I had a crush. It was genuine love.”
Simon Cowell also revealed that after he got over Dannii, now a mother of one, he lusted after 28-year-old Cheryl Cole when she joined the show. Reportedly, he was “mesmerized” by her visits to his dressing room and made her sit next to him on the judges’ panel.
The blockbuster biography further describes how Cowell planned to seduce Dannii’s friend, singer Natalie Imbruglia, after inviting her on to his yacht last year.
