ABC representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Before becoming famous, Cowell held down several brief jobs; quantity surveyor, a job at Tesco (he never made it past the interview), trainee law clerk, a runner, a waiter, a job in the EMI mailroom, and an estate agency where he had his worst job ever as a canvasser.
Seacrest and the 26-year-old personal chef share his new Manhattan pad.
They reconnected over the last year after dating several years ago.
Ryan recently opened up about why he hasn't gotten engaged, despite several long-term relationships, during a chat with Ripa.
