London: Music mogul Simon Cowell is cancelling his Christmas celebration and will spend the festive season away from his fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy.

The 52-year-old has decided to 'scrap' the festive season and will fly out for his annual vacation to Barbados alone.

'His relationship with fiancee Mezhgan is at crisis point and Simon has been working flat-out on the American 'X Factor'. All in all it's been a pretty stressful year,' quoted Cowell as saying.

'So he decided to scrap Christmas and just concentrate on himself. He'll wake up at about midday and catch a flight at around 2pm, meaning he'll land in Barbados seven hours later -- 1 a.m. local time,' he added.
