Simon Cowell has made "65 marriage proposals" but no woman will marry him
The 52-year-old music mogul - who is currently on a relationship break from his fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy - joked he has popped the question numerous times, but has always been turned down.
Speaking at an afternoon tea event earlier this week at London`s Dorchester Hotel - which was hosted by his publicist Max Clifford in aid of the Shooting Star charity - he said: "The truth is no-one willmarry me. I must have made 65 marriage proposals and no-one`s said yes so it`s probably not going to happen."
The `X Factor` boss has previously admitted his relationship with make-up artist Mezhgan is "complicated" and has made him realise that he may never tie the knot.
He said: "It`s quite a complicated relationship. We have had a break from each other, and we are still incredibly close, I`m vulnerable. It`s not on, it`s not off, it`s somewhere in the middle. I don`t know if I will ever get married, but I am happy."
Meanwhile, Simon`s mother, Julie Cowell, recently admitted she thinks the couple got engaged "too quick".
She explained: "I think [the engagement] was too quick. This might give them the break they need to think it through. Marriage is a very, very big step.
"It`s a break at the moment. The problem with Simon is that he works so hard."
