Simon Cowell had a smokin' hot time at The X Factor premiere with girlfriend Mezghan Hussainy despite rumors that the two had called off their engagement.
X17online caught up with the reality show's main man at the ArcLight Cinerama Dome in Los Angeles Wednesday night, and we asked him if he was still dating the 38-year-old makeup artist.
Simon looked confused, turning around and pointing down the red carpet towards Mezghan.
The question shouldn't have come as a big surprise, as last week Simon told Howard Stern: â€œI'm not sure [if we're still engaged]. I get embarrassed talking about things." After opening his admittedly big mouth, the 51-year-old said he wanted to keep his relationship private from here on out.
Reports have also surfaced that Mezghan has moved out of Simon's Beverly Hills mansion and into one of his nearby properties. "Yes, she is living here. She is here now," a member of the house staff told the Mirror.
Mezghan also did not wear her engagement ring to the premiere last night, as seen in the pic below. However, the two put on a united front throughout the evening.
In his usually brash fashion, Simon took no interest in hiding his habit despite the fact that he was on the red carpet -- the former Idol judge puffed on his cig while signing autographs for fans.
The X Factor judge was super nice to his fans, answering questions and even smirking when asked if the chemistry was still there between him and Paula. Find out what else Simon had to say about the other leading ladies in his life -- gf Mezghan, Mariah Carey and Cheryl Cole -- in the video above.
We're a little surprised that Simon was so brazen about smoking in his fans' faces but then again, it is Mr. Cowell!
