Paula Abdul and Jeff Bratton Break Up

Paula Abdul has split from her boyfriend of a year and a half.

Jeff Bratton, owner of record label Cascine Records, said he and Abdul broke up in November.

“It was an amicable thing,” he said. “Between the final months of ‘X Factor’ and my responsibilities with Cascine, there was little time for us.”

The couple met in 2010 and split their time between Los Angeles — where Abdul lives and tapes “The X Factor” — and Bratton’s home base of New York.

“We’re still close, and I’ll always be grateful for the time we shared as a couple,” Bratton said.

Well, that means she’s free to date Simon Cowell.

I still root for the two of them to get together.
