Isn't this cute?

Simon Cowell would like to have a conversation with the new boyfriend of Paula Abdul. He wants to make sure this gentleman is a suitable match for his fellow American Idol judge.

The man in question is restaurateur JT Torregiani.

And, according to Abdul, it’s not the first time the acerbic judge has taken an interest in her love life.

“Simon is already calling me and bugging me and saying: 'Let me talk to him',” Paula revealed in an interview with World Entertainment News Network.

That's because he cares, Paula. Ain't nothing wrong with that.
