Simon Cowell's ex-girlfriend has met-up with his new lover.

TV presenter Terri Seymour proved there are no hard feelings between herself and the music mogul - who she dated for six years until November 2008 - when she greeted him and Mezhgan Hussainy with a "friendly" embrace.

An insider revealed: "Terri was not going to play the part of the bitter ex - she is genuinely fond of them and wishes them well as a couple. It was pretty awkward, but Terri and Simon are still great friends and there are no hard feelings."

The meeting came about when Terri had to interview Simon about his new love live on TV for US station 'Extra'.

Quizzing him on whether he planned to start a family with the Afghan-born beauty, the 50-year-old music mogul joked: "I'm thinking about getting a pet - a squirrel, ha, ha!"

The 'American Idol' judge is believed to have proposed on Valentine's Day (14.02.10) with a £250,000 diamond ring.

While the speculation has been dismissed, Simon has admitted he is "smitten" with the make-up artist.

He said: "I'm smitten with Mezhgan - I think she's 'The One'. She's very special."
