"Terri phoned Simon and finished it in September, about six weeks ago," Cowell's publicist Max Clifford said. "They are going to remain close friends. Simon thinks the world of Terri and that isn't going to change. He also understands her reason for ending it. ... In the past, Terri has said that she wants kids, but that just isn't Simon. Nobody else is involved, certainly not on Simon's side."
