SIMON Cowell, says he has been unable to speak to Dannii Minogue since he revealed details of their fling to his biographer Tom Bower.
Simon Cowell’s decision to “kiss and tell” over his relationship with Danni Minogue has upset the former judge on The X Factor.
“I haven’t been able to get her to speak to me directly,” the creator of the television talent contest admitted at the launch of Tom Bower’s biography, Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell, at the Serpentine Gallery in London.
Cowell disclosed details of his affair with the Marks & Spencer model during his conversations with Bower, who has published unflattering biographies of Gordon Brown and Sir Richard Branson.
Cowell says he has had to resort to speaking to Minogue’s factotums. “I’ve been in touch with her through intermediaries. She’s fine, I think, and, hopefully, we’re okay.”
The 52-year-old television personality insists that he was right to co-operate with Bower. “I said to Tom right from the beginning, 'I’m not going to lie to you’, and that was the deal. Not to say, it hasn’t all been a bit embarrassing.”
In the book Cowell reveals he bedded Kylie’s sister when she joined The X Factor in 2007, admitting: 'It was genuine love... It was her hair, the clothes and the tits.'
He also boasted: 'I would've liked an affair with Cheryl,' and branded her a femme fatale, saying: 'I was the mouse with ?a beautiful cat... She played me.”
The revelation of his affair with Minogue, came just weeks after the singer, 40, announced her split from the father of her son Ethan, the former rugby league player Kris Smith, 33.
According to reports Minogue said she had "fought and fought" to save the relationship.
"It's so sad because Dannii gave up so much for Kris. Part of her decision to leave the UK and to move full-time to Australia was because of his insistence that his career was in Australia," the Daily Mail quoted the friend as saying.
"Dannii turned down a chance to go back to the X Factor because she couldn't make the commute between Australia and the UK work.
