Simon Cowell loves a good lap-dance

“American Idol” judge and music mogul Simon Cowell has defended his weakness for lap-dancing clubs – and insists those who don’t like the near-naked ladies are odd.

WENN reports that Cowell admits his partner of five years, Terri Seymour, isn’t keen about his penchant for lap-dancers, but concedes the experience helps him relax.

Cowell believes those who don’t like lap-dancing clubs “have a problem”.

He says, “I don’t have a problem with saying I like lap-dancers. Nothing wrong with that. If you don’t, you’ve got a bit of a problem.”

“I haven’t got them living in my house. Sometimes I go out with some mates and we have a laugh. Terri’s not exactly doing a dance herself when I say I’m going out with the boys.

“But you’ve got to let off a bit of steam occasionally. It’s fun!”

Simon, 48, also said “I’ve got about five million kids in the world at the moment – all the kids that watch our shows.”

He insists no children are on the horizon for him and his 33-year-old partner Terri Seymour.

“I still have a lifestyle right now that is so unstable in many ways, in terms of the hours and travelling. It’s 18 hours a day.

“Terri is keen. But I was open from day one. I was 43 when we met and I said, ‘I can’t see this changing. I’m sort of obsessed with my work and I have a feeling it’s going to get worse.'”
