"She got married already? Oh I didn’t even know that," he told MailOnline. "That’s cool! I’m happy for her, that’s dope."
Since her return to this year's X Factor judging panel, her star power has increased more than ever - including in fashion.
She has even adopted the same selling power as her contrasting peter pan collar Jason Wu dress sold out hours after she was snapped in it - despite costing €1,190.
