"She's not my girlfriend," Cowell, 53, explained when he called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest. "We're people who date."

Exclusive or not, the X Factor judge is smitten with Electra.

"She's adorable, isn't she?" he asked Seacrest of the 40-year-old actress/model.

And the feeling is mutual.

When rumors began swirling Electra was dating the music mogul in November, she opened up about their relationship on Access Hollywood Live. "He's so cute. He is adorable. He's actually a sweetheart," the former Baywatch star explained. "The thing is, we worked together on Britain's Got Talent. I was a guest judge and I had so much fun. I really liked him. I think he's really cool."
