It's official! Well, kind of.

After weeks of speculation, "X Factor" mogul Simon Cowell has confirmed that he is dating former Playboy model Carmen Electra, but insists she isn't his girlfriend (yet).

Cowell called in to 102.7 KIIS FM's "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" on Wednesday and revealed that he and the "Baywatch" babe, who was previously married to Dave Navarro and Dennis Rodman, are seeing each other.

When Seacrest asked Cowell whether or not he is dating Electra, the former "American Idol" judge admitted, "She's not my girlfriend. We're people who date. She's adorable, isn't she?"

Electra and Cowell got close when she appeared as a guest judge on "Britain's Got Talent" in February. At the time, she was engaged to rocker Rob Patterson. Then, in September, Electra and Cowell were spotted kissing at Cecconi's in West Hollywood, In Touch reported.

In November, during an interview with "Access Hollywood," the pin-up model admitted she and Cowell had been spending time together. “He’s so cute. He’s adorable, he’s actually a sweetheart. I really like him, I think he’s very cool," she said. “We started to hang out, we’ve become friends, I think he’s a great guy."
