Music mogul Simon Cowell is hoping that 2012 will be better for him personally and professionally, compared to last year.
Last year the 52-year-old saw his reality show, the US version of The X Factor, not getting expected TRP's and his relationship with fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy also suffered a lot.
"Simon was pretty fed up at the end of the year as 2011 didn't exactly go to plan. He's hoping he can sort things out professionally and personally before the new year gets into full swing," femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
"His relationship with 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. He pretty much decided to scrap Christmas, so he's looking forward to getting back on track this year," the source added.
