Simon Cowell keeps telling Paula Abdul he loves her, the singer has revealed.

Former ‘American Idol’ judge Abdul is feeling “disturbed” after the 50-year-old music mogul repeatedly expressed his devotion.

She told FOX News: "I've talked to Simon. He misses me, and I know it. I talk to him a lot - he says he loves me and that is really disturbing to me."

Abdul - who left the US TV talent show earlier this year after eight seasons - is struggling to come to terms with her decision to quit, but will be watching the new series.

The singer-and-choreographer said: "I feel tremendously blessed to have made history with that show. I felt like I was a mamma-bear to cubs and I was there to protect them. I'll miss that but I'll be rooting on everyone."

Paula has also dismissed reports of rivalry between her and fellow judge Kara DioGuardi, insisting they are so close they used to live together.

She explained: "I literally discovered Kara and believed in her. She lived with me and we became the best roommates, we never fought."
