Simon Cowell Single: 'X Factor' Mentor Reveals Breakup With Carmen Electra

Simon Cowell has confirmed that he and Carmen Electra have called it quits.

The couple announced their romance in December, but haven't been photographed together much since then.

"I'm now a single man. We spent time together and she is so much fun," Cowell told Sunday People of Electra, 40, according to the Daily Mail, adding, "But I'd like to find a girlfriend ... I'm happy, but I'd like to find a girlfriend."

The 53-year-old admits he likes British women, but hasn't spotted any one in particular he'd like to date. Then again, he has confessed that he's not looking for something serious.

"She's not my girlfriend. We're people who date," the "X Factor" mentor told Ryan Seacrest about his relationship with Electra. "She's adorable, isn't she?"

Cowell's last relationship prior to Electra was with makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy. The pair ended their engagement last year.
