Simon Cowell has way too much money

It’s been revealed that Simon Cowell gave ex-girlfriend Terri Seymour a $9.6 million ‘goodbye gift’ as part of their split. The two had been going out for six years before splitting about six weeks ago. The Scoop reports:

Cowell is said to have given Seymour, who he dated for six years, $5 million cash and another $4.6 to buy a Beverly Hills home just before calling it quits, reports Life & Style.

“Terri phoned Simon about six weeks ago and finished it,” his rep told Life & Style, referring to the breakup. “Simon thinks the world of Terri, and that isn’t going to change. He also understands her reason for ending it.”

According to the magazine, Seymour wanted to marry and start a family, whereas Cowell recently said, “I don’t want to marry anyone, because whoever marries me will end up hating me.”

So is this what rich people do? Just hand out $10 million to women they’re breaking up with? I mean, I get it, she’s hot. This story would’ve made a lot less sense if she was a short pudgy woman. But still, even if I had the money I’d probably stick to my usual breakup routine: gently letting them know I’ve been seeing their sister and then running out the door and never looking back.
