When Simon Cowell breaks up with a girlfriend, he doesn’t like them to leave empty-handed.
Cowell claims that he pays his exes after they split so they can maintain the standard of living he’s introduced them to, according to Hollyscoop.
“You can’t have somebody in your life who’s become accustomed to a certain thing and, just because you don’t want to be in a relationship any more, say to them, ‘No, everything is cut off,’” says Cowell, who is currently engaged to makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy.
He didn’t elaborate as to what sort of payments he’s made to his exes, though.
