Paula Abdul performs her new single on American Idol stage

Paula Abdul is a brave woman.

Not only is the Eighties star trying to break into the charts again with a new song, but she had the guts to perform it in front of her fellow judges on American Idol.

The risk to the 46-year-old’s credibility were huge, what if she couldn’t perform any better than the acts she regularly criticises on the show?

But with expert choreographers, top-notch backing singers and billowing smoke in just the right places, she pulled the whole thing off brilliantly in a glittery basque.

Paula Says She’s Straight-Up Single Celebrity News

Paula Abdul is back on the market.

Abdul’s publicist, Jeffrey Ballard, confirms exclusively to E! News that Abdul and her boyfriend, restauranteur J.T. Torregiani, have been not together for at least two months.

“They broke up months ago,” Ballard tells E!, adding that the couple, who moved in together last year, are no longer cohabitating. E! has learned that J.T. is now living with a friend in the Hollywood Hills.

Abdul, 46, announced she was dating Torregiani, who is 12 years her junior, last July.

The American Idol judge told the Today show’s Matt Lauer at the time that Torregiani was “a good guy” and that her personal life was “looking upwards.”

“Things are looking good right now,” Abdul said.

Torregiani is one of the partners of the Dolce Group, a restaurant and nightclub enterprise, which includes Los Angeles hot spots Les Deux, Geisha House, Bella, Ketchup and Dolce.

They were last spotted together celebrating Torregiani’s birthday at Beso restaurant in Hollywood on May 19. According to Abdul’s publicist, the couple still remain on good terms.

They “still are friendly, though,” Ballard tells E!

But apparently someone hasn’t gotten the memo from Paula’s publicist.
