Simon Cowell and fiancé Mezhgan Hussainy have call it quits. According to the Daily Mail, the X-Factor creator and his girlfriend of 9 years are now residents of splitsville.

“We have had a break from each other.”

Cowell tells the paper, “It is quite a complicated relationship… We are still incredibly close,” adding, “It’s not on, it’s not off, it’s somewhere in the middle. I don’t know if I will ever get married, but I am happy.”

He also admits to regrets about gushing about Hussainy on “Piers Morgan Tonight” at the time of their 2010 engagement, when he called her “the one,” explaining, “I have been pretty good about not talking about my private stuff, but I got caught up in the moment.”
