AceShowbiz - Sinitta's romance with Simon Cowell only "really" ended after he became a father. The "So Macho" hitmaker admitted there was always a spark with the 64-year-old "America's Got Talent" boss - who she dated for the first time in 1983 - but it was fully extinguished when he welcomed his son Eric, now nine, with his long-term love Lauren Silverman, 46, who she considers a great pal now.
"There was always an element of, 'Well, it's never really over,' but when Eric was born that was it. I would never come between his family," the 59-year-old singer told the UK edition of Closer magazine.
Sinitta - who was previously married Andy Willner between 2002 and 2009 and is mum to adopted 17-year-old twins Zac and Magdalena - went on to reveal she isn't bothered about her past relationships because she recently fell in love and is more focused on "pleasure" than ever before.
She said, "I'm dating someone! I'm trying to keep secret about it, but I'm so happy. I've been dating him since April. I fell in love with my best friend. I actually feel more confident and happier than I've been in my life because I'm not self-conscious and I know what I want sexually."
"I know how to get what I want sexually. I know how to get what I want and how to ask for it, I'm not afraid, and I'm not just that people pleaser - I'm someone who wants pleasure for myself in all things."
Sinitta also confessed she worried her sex life was over after going through the menopause, but she's happy to say it's now back on track. She said, "With menopause, I thought I was dying, that my cooch was dead, and my life was over. And you know what? The vagina is not dead - it's all still there."
"I feel like I'm finally learning what sex is! I think my generation grew up at a time where it was about pleasing men and being seen as someone who was pleasurable. And you know what, I've learnt that men actually have a better time when you're genuinely happy, you don't just have to feed their ego."
