Is paula abdul dating simon cowell

We had a lot of fun making the show together and importantly, we found some real talent and stars.You do develop friendships with the people you work with and Paula, in particular, is a very close friend and I expect to be working with her on another project in the near future.“This could really put her in a bad way.” If that sounds like it doesn’t bode well for those on the show who must deal with Abdul, well, that’s because it doesn’t.

I’ve learned through my longevity in this industry that business decisions often times override personal considerations.Rumors put Abdul's salary at closer to $5 to $8 million per season.“Paula knew that Simon was getting paid more, but she never imagined it was this much more,” says a source who works with Abdul.Nobody knew who I was, and in a way that was quite comforting.

No matter what happened, we were going to make the show we wanted to make.

Simon and I, along with Fox and Fremantle, have been communicating about this for a while now, and I have absolute understanding of the situation.
