Simon Cowell’s wedding preparations to makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy have taken a nautical turn after it was revealed that the American Idol host is planning to buy a floating yacht to get married in the Caribbean this summer. The 50-year-old is also planning to name it The Simon Cowell and get married at sea just off the coast of his “home from home” Barbados.
“It would be such a great place to get married and the plan is to do it at sea,” said a friend of the happy couple. “The idea is to pick up all the guests in Barbados and then sail to St Barts and get married there. Then they’d all sail back to Barbados for a huge party. It would just be close friends and family on the yacht. Simon has been saying he’d name it after himself.”
His tropical plans however might come up against some objections from Simon’s 84-year-old mother Julie who was hoping her son would tie the knot in Rottingdean in East Sussex where Simon grew up. But Mezhgan’s family are based in Los Angeles so a Caribbean wedding is more convenient for everyone.
