After a year and half, The X Factor judge Paula Abdul and her boyfriend Jeff Bratton secretly decided to call it quits in November 2011. "Paula and I split in November," Jeff Bratton told, adding "It was an amicable thing. But between the final months of X Factor and my responsibilities with [my label] Cascine, there was little time for us." Paula Abdul and record label owner Jeff Bratton met during a flight in 2010 and kept their relationship relatively quiet; however, the ex-couple did step out in October 2011 to dance the night away at a Chad Valley concert in L.A.'s Echo Park neighborhood. Until now, Jeff Bratton and Paula Abdul are still close and according to Bratton, he will always be grateful for the time they shared as a couple.
Interestingly, at the middle of last month, Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul made the headline as X Factor judge revealed that there was some "sexual tension" between Abdul and him during their Idol.

In addition, in July 2007, Abdul announced that she had begun dating J.T.
