Simon Cowell says he's "off women".

The music mogul has vowed to stay away from the opposite sex after splitting with girlfriend Terri Seymour after six years together.

The 49-year-old star is being comforted following the break-up by his previous girlfriend Sinitta, though pals insist they are just good friends

Simon told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Don't worry about me. I don't need a lonely hearts advert. I'm off women now. But everything's fine between me and Terri - we're still friends. In fact I just spoke to her on the phone now."

The 49-year-old star is being comforted following the break-up by his previous girlfriend Sinitta, though pals insist they are just good friends.

Simon - who is a judge on TV talent shows 'American Idol' and 'The X Factor' - added: "I've always been very close to all my ex-girlfriends. We've never fallen out - they're like my best friends."

Simon - who is worth an estimated $200 million - parted ways from 34-year-old Terri several weeks ago, but the news was only confirmed last weekend.

He is believed to have given her a parting gift of $5 million in cash, and another $4.6 million to buy a house in Beverly Hills, California.
