It's official! Simon Cowell is off the market. Sorta. Kinda. Not really, but he is dating Carmen Electra.

The "X Factor" judge has finally come clean about his relationship with the former "Baywatch" star after months of dodging the question. Unfortunately the news about their relationship is a bit underwhelming.

The British reality star told Ryan Seacrest of the relationship, "She's not my girlfriend. We're people who date. She's adorable, isn't she?"

Rumors of a romantic hookup have been following the former "American Idol" judge and the playboy model have been swirling for months. They first met while working together on "Britain's Got Talent" and have recently been spotted canoodling in Los Angeles as he wraps up the latest season of the American version of "X Factor."

Carmen is just the latest in a growing string of beauties who have caught the eye of the sarcastic reality judge. Here are a few of the ladies who have been linked to Simon Cowell:

Mezhgan Hussainy: She almost made an honest man out of caddish Cowell! The self described "make-up artist to the stars" nearly claimed the title of Mrs. Simon Cowell after becoming engaged to the star in February 2010. The two called up off the wedding earlier this year. The eternal bachelor has described the engagement as "a big mistake".

Janina Gavankar: Just two weeks ago, Simon was spotted dining out with the "True Blood" and "The L Word" actress. The couple had previously openly flirted on Twitter before taking their romance out on the town.

Dannii Minogue: The fact that the Cowell and the Australian singer once had a secret affair in 2007 came to light when an unauthorized biography titled, "The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell", was published earlier this year. In the book Simon is quoted as saying, "She was foxy. She was a real man's girl. Very feminine. It was genuine love."

Terri Seymour: The television presenter holds the title of Simon's longest celebrity relationship having tamed the bad boy for six years. The "Extra" correspondent dated the "X Factor" judge from 2002 until 2008. They reportedly called it quits when she pushed the star to settle down and get married.
