'He was dating three girls at once': Sharon Osbourne claims Simon Cowell had affairs with Jasmine Lennard and his make-up artist Julia Carta while engaged to Mezghan

Sharon Osbourne has accused Simon Cowell of dating three women at once – while he was engaged.
It's no secret that the X Factor judge has a reputation as a ladies man, but the outspoken redhead appears to have cemented his womanising ways, claiming he had an affair with glamour model Jasmine Lennard and his make-up artist Julia Carta during his romance with Mezhgan Hussainy.
The comments surfaced after an angry Sharon spoke out on Simon's affair with Dannii Mionogue.

Simon's girls: Sharon Osbourne has claimed her former X Factor co-judge dated three girls at the same time while engaged to Mezhgan Hussainy – including secret affairs with model Jasmine Lennard and Julia Carta
In a new
tell-all biography on Cowell, the music mogul insinuates Sharon quit the show due to his relationship with
Dannii, but she insists it was because Kylie's sister simply became 'unbearable'.
Sharon gave a frank interview to The Mirror, saying she was
annoyed to have been 'dragged into his world of debauchery' and also
vocalised her opinion about his alleged infidelities.
'Big mistake: Simon says he regrets getting engaged – but it's doubtful Mezghan feels the same after securing a parting gift which consisted of a 5millon house in Beverly Hills

She said: 'We
all knew Simon and Dannii were seeing each other, it wasn’t a secret. I
don’t know why he tried to hide it from everyone though – he’d already
split from Terri (Seymour).
'But it’ll be interesting whether the book mentions he was seeing Mezhgan, Jasmine and Julia at the same time.'
Socialite Jasmine, 26, is a former contestant from Rachel Hunter's
reality show Make Me A Supermodel, while Julia is Simon's personal make-up artist – and looks remarkably like Mezghan.
News of an alleged affair with Jasmine came to light in 2006, when she was pictured sneaking out of Simon's house when then-girlfriend Terri was away.

Whatever the truth, it seems Simon has bought Mezghan's silence by buying her a 5m house in LA.

Sharon also said that Dannii's sole reason for appearing on the show was to be Simon's 'mistress'.
She said: 'I didn’t leave the show because
Simon and Dannii were f******, I left because she became unbearable. She
started bossing everyone around, even the producers.
'All Dannii wanted to do was f*** Simon Cowell. That’s why she was on the show.'
Sharon insists the affair 'wasn't a
secret' and is bemused why it was kept private as he had already split
from Terri – whose connections to Cowell later landed her a job
on US show Extra.
The biography, by Tom Bower, is said to be unauthorised despite Simon inviting the investigative journalist aboard his
private yacht and providing an
access-all-areas pass on his debut season of X Factor USA.
Even Cowell’s own spokesman criticised
his decision to cooperate with the book.
Max Clifford said: 'My attitude
is you don’t talk to someone like Bower.
'He’s only looking for controversial stuff.'
Sharon claims to have been approached by Bower too, but she refused to contribute.
