Simon Cowell & Ex-Fiancee

The Fab 'Parting Gift' Mansion

4/16/2012 12:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0416_mezghans_houseHere it is ... the $8 million "parting gift" Simon Cowell gave to his ex-fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy when he dumped her ass earlier this year -- his old, used mansion in Beverly Hills.

TMZ has learned ... Simon moved out of the home a few years ago ... when he upgraded to a spiffier 6-bedroom $12 million dream home ... just a few miles away (below).

As we previously reported, Simon felt Mezhgan "deserved" the old property for having to deal with all of the public scrutiny that comes with dating the "X Factor" honcho.

The real question -- why did Simon have an old mansion just lying around? If you have to ask, you can't afford it.

He probably couldn't sell it. It looks like it's about to slide down the hill!

Ugly looking property in a down market, assessed value too high, hasn't even lived there in years... Good way to get rid of it, by dumping it on her.

It's nice of Simon to buy her a house and he is smart to keep things friendly. Maybe she is honestly a nice person and it didn't work out, or maybe he doesn't want her to have to sell stories to the tabloids, but whatever, it's nice of him to buy her a nice house and shows he has some class, I think.
Don't be mad that he is rich. He created programs that sell a lot of advertising. People make their money on Simon. They are happy to pay him.

House on top of house, no grass, no trees, for millions of dollars. All for one person. What a waste of money.

She'll wind up with a much smaller house judging by the corrosion of the hillsides. chop chop chop eh, it will still be a good size home.

Hope she can afford the taxes on it each year and the up keep, otherwise it's just a burden

Why do some of you ignoramus jerks choose to comment when you don't know diddlysquat about her? Mezhgan is a Celebrity Makeup Stylist who also has her own makeup line. You guys commenting are worse then a bunch of high school children. If you have no knowledge of what she does or who she is why make a comment? When making a comment on things you know nothing about makes you ignorant. Only making a comment based on what you read and also not being very informed or knowledgeable of the people involved or the situation that makes you an utter moron, immature and again ignorant. Shut up! Think before you speak and Research before putting forth an idiotic comment/opinion. THANK YOU!!!!!!
