SIMON Cowell has revealed his engagement to Mezhgan Hussainy was ‘a big mistake’.

The X Factor mogul, 52, told pals he and Mezhgan, 39, split after blazing rows - but he gave her a £5million house as a farewell gift.

Cowell admitted after his fiery relationship with Mezhgan bit the dust: “I’m a hopeless boyfriend.” The telly boss was left soul-searching when he pulled out of their wedding plans amid blistering arguments. He insisted: “I don’t blame her” and admitted his failure to commit could infuriate women.

He said: “I’m attracted to crazy women. I encourage crazy behaviour and I make them crazy.

“I’m attracted to certain personalities who are difficult to control. So there are tantrums, tears and fights, which is all part of the drama. My life is really odd. Every girl wants to be number one and they’re very territorial.

I like the fight, because otherwise I’d have a dull group of girlfriends.”                      –The Sun
