Simon Cowell may or may not be engaged



The latest American Idol controversy has nothing to do with the onscreen talent, but whether or not Simon Cowell is getting married or not. We owe quite a few people some Andrew Jacksons if he is.

Online reports insist he has gotten engaged to makeup artist Mezghan Hussainy. The U.K.'s Daily Mail insists he gave the 36-year-old a diamond engagement band worth about $387,000, perhaps as part of dealing with his recent 50th birthday.

Not so, says Us, which quotes Cowell's publicist, Max Clifford, as saying, "I spoke to Simon in London yesterday afternoon, just before he took his flight back to LA," Clifford explains. "I asked him: 'Look, are you engaged? Is it true?,' and he said, 'No! No. I'm not engaged.'"

Well, which is it? Please don't tell us this will be drawn out into 12 long weeks of uncertainty. We can't even call in or text message about this one.
