American Idyll

Simon to Wed on Self-Named Boat

American Idol judge Simon Cowell has big plans for his upcoming wedding with Mezhgan Hussainy—he wants a Caribbean ceremony conducted on a yacht named for himself, according to Britain’s Daily Mail. The tabloid says Cowell wants to pick up wedding guests in Barbados aboard The Simon Cowell and take them to St. Barts for the nuptials. The mogul’s 84-year-old mother would prefer a nice British wedding in East Sussex, however. But the Caribbean event would be more convenient for Afghan-born Hussainy’s family, who live in Los Angeles. The 50-year-old reality-TV star proposed to 36-year-old Hussainy on Valentine’s Day.
