She is currently engaged to Oliver Palotai, keyboardist of the American power metal band Kamelot[citation needed].

Her favourite song to perform is Reprendo Mai Piu by Emma Shapplin. In January 2008, it was announced on Epica's website that Simone is suffering from MRSA. This has caused Epica to have to cancel many of their shows. In February, her condition was getting better, but she was not completely recovered. In March, Epica toured with Amanda Somerville, replacing Simons for their US tour until May 11, 2008, when Simone performed again at their show in Bibelot, Dordrecht. Read more on Last.fm.
