X Factor Simon Cowell has revealed that he once wanted to have sex with fellow X Factor judge Paula Abdul but was scared of what might have happened afterwards.
The former American Idol judge who shocked fans when he left the number one talent show to bring X Factor to America said the sexual tensions between him and Paula Abdul were very strong and he was tempted on many occasions to have sex with her.
Simon Cowell told Barbara Walters on her Ten Most Fascinating People Show that he was certain that Paula Abdul wanted him.
He said: “We didn’t like each other in the beginning. I think it was sexual tension — on her part. One million per cent she wanted me.
“I considered it, but then I thought, ‘I don’t think the after would be as good as the before.’
“I’d let her stay for a few hours, but then it would have to be goodnight.”
