Washington, Nov 28 : Simon Cowell's ex Terri Seymour has denied that she ditched the music mogul by text message.
The couple dated for more than six years, until Seymour called time on the relationship in September (08).
Cowell later told a U.S. news show he was dumped by text, but Seymour insists that wasn't the case.
She insists that ending such a long-lasting relationship with a text message would be too impersonal.
"You're with someone for six years and you end it by text? I don't think so! No, it wasn't ended over the phone and it wasn't ended by text," Contactmusic quoted her, as telling Britain's Hello magazine.
Seymour is adamant the split had nothing to do with Cowell's admitted lack of interest in settling down and starting a family.
"It wasn't because he wouldn't marry me and wouldn't have children. We were never going to get married and Simon never wanted children. That wasn't even a factor, because I always knew that he never wanted kids, dating back to the time when we were friends before we started going out with each other," she said.
