Where's Mezhgan? Simon Cowell was spotted heading out for dinner with a mystery brunette earlier this week and not fiancée Hussainy

He sent the rumour mill into overdrive earlier this year as he admitted he wasn't sure if he was still engaged to Mezhgan Hussainy.

And now Simon Cowell has furthered the speculation about the state of his relationship by stepping out with a pretty brunette who looked remarkably similar to his make-up artist fiancée.

The X Factor mogul was spotted enjoying an evening out with the mystery woman at Miami's Casa Tua restaurant earlier this week.

Cowell, 52, couldn't hide his delight as he left the eatery and headed home for the evening, smiling widely as he made his way to the waiting car.

And his dinner partner also appeared in good spirits, grinning for photographers who spotted the pair arriving at the restaurant.

Cowell's dinner date comes as he and Mezhgan haven't been seen together for nearly a month.

But, speaking earlier this month, Cowell told U.S. publication Star magazine that he isn't getting cold feet about marrying Mezhgan- but is just waiting for the right time.

He said: 'I’m not going to lie, everything this year has been about working on The X Factor.

'It has probably been the busiest year I’ve ever had.'

He added: 'Making the choice to get married is something you just have to decide when the time is right.'

Cowell has always remained coy about when he will make an honest woman of Mezhgan.
He met the 37-year-old make-up artist while he was a judge on fellow Fox show American Idol.

He then popped the question back in February last year.

But a source told Mail On Sunday's Katie Nicholl earlier this year that Cowell and Mezhgan had called time on their relationship.

The source said: 'Simon and Mezhgan split up in August. He called it off and she wasn’t that surprised or even very bothered about it.

Still together? Cowell sparked speculation about his relationship with Mezhgan earlier this year when he said he was 'not sure' if they were still engaged

‘Mezhgan told her friends she knew it had been coming for a while. She offered him the ring back but he has insisted she keep it.

'As with all his exes, he is being very generous, but he is already dating again and he has been on a dinner date or two with a mystery British brunette.'
