Multi-millionaire X Factor boss Cowell, 53, confirmed this month that he has begun dating busty former Playboy model and Baywatch babe Carmen Electra.
US basketball legend Dennis Rodman, who spent five torrid months married to the American beauty, described her as every man’s dream.
And he warned Cowell she has a passion for kinky sex that will make even the most experienced lover blush.
During his romance with the actress, now 40, Dennis said they had sex in a private jet in front of his agent and in a string of hotel rooms…even romping in the back of a Bentley as his chauffeur sat inches away.
They eventually split after a bizarre incident involving dried pasta.
The 6ft 8in sportsman, said: “Carmen is one sexy lady and someone who knows how to have a good time. Simon has a reputation for being kind of grouchy, but Carmen will make sure he has a big grin on his face…if you know what I mean.”
He added: “I’ve slept with over 2,000 women. After a while they all become a bit of a blur. One woman looks the same as another…but not Carmen. She’s right up there in the top ten. She has a killer body and is very,very passionate in the bedroom. When we were together we couldn’t keep our hands off each other. I’m a physical person who needs sex…Carmen was my match.”
He went on: “Carmen has a passion for sex and wants it whenever the mood takes her, no matter what time of day. We were at it all the time. The most memorable occasion was when we were on a private jet going to Canada. My agent was also on the plane, but Carmen wanted sex and so did I. We just got it on without thinking. It was no big deal, just sex. My agent was sitting opposite us in the jet, but he didn’t care…and neither did we. When the opportunity is there to have sex, you take it. Carmen was like that. We were in tune together and, if the mood took us, then we would get it on.”
Rodman had recently ended an affair with Madonna, who was so besotted with him that she wanted to have his baby. But the Material Girl singer was a distant memory when Rodman spotted Carmen in an LA nightclub. He said it was “lust at first sight” and the pair hit it off immediately.
“I think Carmen was attracted to bad boys, and back then I was a bad boy…a very, very bad boy,” he said.
“There were so many women I kind of lost count. But we just seemed to have a spark and there was a very physical attraction.”
Despite his annulment bid, the marriage remained binding and Dennis says he continued to see Carmen whenever he could.
But he was still sleeping with a virtual harem of women and matters quickly soured after Carmen caught him in bed with two beauties at a Los Angeles hotel.
Dennis, a self-confessed bisexual who enjoys wearing women’s clothes, said: “I don’t know how, but she got a key to the room and let herself in. I was in bed with two girls and let’s just say she was not pleased.”
Rodman, who has piercings in each nostril and one through his lip, shrugged as he told how the raging actress leapt on the bed as the two naked girls fled the room.
“How do you explain two naked girls to your wife?” he asked. “You can’t. Of course she was mad at me and we didn’t speak for several weeks. Who can blame her? It took her a while to calm down. I guess any wife would have been angry.”
The couple reconciled but the marriage finally ended when they were both arrested after a bust-up at a Miami hotel.
Dennis said: “We had been partying really hard and I was exhausted and just wanted to sleep. Carmen wasn’t so tired and was in a playful mood. She was with a friend and thought it would be fun to try and shove some of the pasta up my backside.
“She was just having a bit of fun, but I was partied out and just wanted to sleep. I did not see the funny side of it and flipped.”
Dennis insists he did not punch Carmen, but pushed her out of their hotel room. As they screamed at each other police were called and the pair were arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.
No charges were brought but it ended their brief romance.
The pasta incident obviously looms large in Dennis’s memory.
“If I were Simon I would not order pasta if he’s going to have a argument with Carmen,” he joked. In April 1999 — and having never lived with her husband — Carmen filed for divorce. But Dennis still has a soft spot for her.
They last met in a Miami club a year ago. Dennis said: “Me and Carmen are cool. We always speak if we run into each other. Our marriage was short, but we had fun.”
