The music mogul has reportedly met with former Fame Academy contestant Louise a few times and the pair are said to have kissed.

A friend of Louise told The Sun: “She and Simon have started to get very close.

"It is very early days but there is certainly a chemistry between them."

Smitten Simon even invited LA-based Brit Louise to his Beverley Hills mansion to celebrate his 53rd birthday.

Louise, 34, tweeted earlier this month, reportedly after her first date with Simon: "Going to bed as the sun is coming up. Haven't done that in a while! #fun."

A friend then replied to her message and she responded: "Oh Zachy.. I got stories to tell ya!! ."

Singer-songwriter Louise started dating F1's Jenson in 2000 and the pair got engaged in 2003.

But they called it off in 2005, reportedly because Louise was keen to start a family.

Meanwhile, Simon's dating history includes Sinitta, Dannii Minogue and, most recently, make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy.

Simon got engaged to Mezhgan in 2010 but after revealing he wasn't keen to set a wedding date, the pair split earlier this year.

Simon's apparent commitment phobia seems to be an issue for his partners.

He recently admitted: “Every girl wants to be number one and they’re very territorial.

“I like the fight, because otherwise I’d have a dull group of girlfriends.”

Louise tweeted this morning: "Holy s#*! This is gonna be a crazy day! #wtf."
