Simon Cowell dating Janina Gavankar?
After rumor had it that Simon Cowell was dating Carmel Electra, he was spotted with a new woman. It looks like Cowell and Electra are indeed just friends. But we can’t say the same thing about the X Factor mogul and Janina Gavankar.
The X Factor judge and the ‘True Blood’ actress were seen in the back of his car outside of Cecconi’s West Hollywood on Saturday night, December 8.
When they were seen together, 53-year-old Cowell seemed bothered to be photographed, while 32-year-old Gavankar was smiling in the backseat.
So far it’s unknown if they are really dating, but it’s very possible. Two months ago, Gavankar shared a photo on Instagram of her hanging out with Simon, L.A. Reid and Jermaine Dupri.
Gavankar is known for her more notable roles as Papi, a promiscuous lesbian in’ The L Word’, Leigh Turner, a cop with a big secret on ‘The Gates’, Ms. Dewey, the personification of a Microsoft branded search engine who comments about the user’s searches, ‘Shiva’. She also played the namesake of the sought after trophy on ‘The League’, and shapeshifter Luna Garza on HBO’s ‘True Blood’.
As for Cowell’s personal life, he became engaged to make up artist Mezhgan Hussainy in February 2010. They split in 2012. In April 2012 he said that he had an affair with fellow ‘The X Factor’ judge Dannii Minogue during her time on the show.
