Simon Cowell's ex Carmen Electra cosies up with Ryan Lochte
Simon Cowell, it's time to avert your eyes. The X Factor mogul's ex Carmen Electra has reportedly moved on with American Olympic swimmer, Ryan Lochte after "instantly hitting off".
The pair were spotted kissing at a bar in LA at the trendy Bootsy Bellows bar and according to eyewitnesses, were flirting throughout the evening. "They were in a booth together and he had his arm around her and they were kissing on the lips," said a source. "At one point, they were standing up and kissing and everyone saw them."
"They did not leave together, and I am not sure if they will see each other again. But they have been tweeting and instagraming back and forth."
That night, an excited Lochte, who beat Michael Phelps to a gold medal at the 2012 Olympics, tweeted a photo of them, saying: "My biggest crush since childhood. Finally meeting her."
However, both parties still insist they are single and taking it slow. "They are both single and having fun and it was very flirty," an insider said. "She was his first crush and so I think that's why they were introduced. They hit it off straight away and decided to hang out that night."
Simon Cowell confirmed his split from Carmen last month, after meeting on set of America's Got Talent where she filled in as a guest judge.
