Simon Cowell dumped Lauren Silverman before she told him about the pregnancy

There are literally 20 million stories about Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman this weekend, and I just thought I should cover at least some of it. I was going to wait until tomorrow, but it seems like the details and the shenanigans are changing on a daily basis, so let’s just get to it. As I said on Friday, it really seems like Lauren is running her own (golddigger) agenda, pushing stories in the press about how Simon is TOTES going to marry her (just as soon as she’s divorced) and Simon’s people seem rather horrified by the turn of events. Well, that seems to be the holding pattern. For now.

TMZ and Us Weekly (Us Weekly broke the story about the baby originally) both got leaks from Lauren’s camp over the past few days. According to TMZ, “Simon Cowell is solely focused on Lauren Silverman and their unborn baby,” with Simon saying privately that his baby will “want for nothing” and he wants to be a “a committed, fully-involved parent and says he wants a big role in raising the child.” And the cherry on top? “People who know Simon say he’s never been happier than when he’s with Lauren.” Here’s Us Weekly’s story:

Simon Cowell may seem like a tough guy on TV, but in reality, the X Factor judge is a big softy at heart. Us Weekly recently revealed that the media magnate is expecting his first child with New York socialite Lauren Silverman, and, a source tells Us Weekly, he is determined to “take care of everything.”

“Simon told Lauren not to worry and he will take care of everything,” the source tells Us. “He always takes care of his women. He gave Mezghan a salary and bought her a house. He bought Terry tons of fancy clothes and cars. He’s very generous to his ladies.”

“He told her whatever Andrew throws at her or says about her he will take care of her so not to worry and not to let it bother her,” the source continued.

Lauren’s mother, Carole Saland, told Us that her daughter “doesn’t deserve all of this bad publicity,” calling the socialite “a nice girl from Miami Beach.”

“Things happen in life,” she told Us. “[We are] living in 2013. Her marriage was not a marriage made in heaven and life goes on, people go on.”

[From Us Weekly]

Yes, Simon is standing by Lauren… except not really. He boarded a private plane several days ago and he’s flown to St. Tropez for a month-long vacation with his ex-girlfriends Sinitta and Mezghan Hussainy. Supposedly, he’s going to spend this time “evaluating how to proceed.” LOL. And here’s new dirt – Simon dumped Lauren before he knew she was pregnant:

Simon Cowell reportedly dumped Lauren Silverman before he knew she was pregnant. The 53-year-old music mogul is said to have ended his romance with the 36-year-old socialite – the wife of his close friend Andrew Silverman – six weeks ago, only to later discover she is expecting his baby.

He is said to have told a friend: ‘It’s over with Lauren – it has been since before anyone knew she was pregnant. I want matters resolved but in a sensitive way. I have to respect a lot of people’s feelings. There’s a lot of people’s feelings here.’

Simon is said to be feeling “confused” about Lauren’s pregnancy but has vowed to stand by her.
The source added to the Sunday Mirror newspaper: ‘Simon feels like he’s been done up like a kipper in all of this. He and Lauren split up six weeks ago but the next thing we know he gets a phone call from her saying, ‘Guess what?’ Since then he has been feeling very confused about everything.’

Lauren’s mother, Carole Saland, meanwhile has slammed claims her daughter deliberately got pregnant to “trap” the ‘X Factor’ boss. And she’s calling for him to do the “right thing” and marry her pregnant daughter.

She told The Sun newspaper: ‘Lauren is not a gold-digger. She came from a very comfortable family and never lacked for anything. Her and Simon are very fond of each other. She tells me great things about him and has always spoken very highly of him… I trust Simon to do the right thing by my daughter.’

[From The Mail]

I hate to be all “let’s blame the woman” but seriously, it really does sound like Simon Cowell got worked over by a world-class golddigger. Lauren sounds like a gal with a plan. She knew just the right time to get pregnant and she sprung the news on Simon when he was already losing interest. Plus, she’s trying to make it look like Simon is a world-class douche if he doesn’t marry her. Except… I seriously doubt Simon will ever marry her. Ever. He’ll financially support her, sure. But marry her? Nope.

Oh, and Andrew Silverman (that poor bastard) is still saying that he NEVER knew about his wife and Simon.

    This situation is so, so messy. I wish children weren’t involved.

    • Pinky says:

      Calling on Kanye. . .

      Now, I ain’t sayin’ she’s a golddigger. But she ain’t messin’ with no broke, broke, uh!

      (This is the radio version–I didn’t want to get all Paula Deen up in here.)

    • Amy says:

      Amen to that, Annabelle! Part of me thinks, “It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy” (Simon), and part of me thinks – those poor children. That woman sounds manipulative at best, based on what I’ve read. Hope there are some sort of stabilizing influences on both the son from her soon-to-be-former first marriage and the impending Cowell calf.

    • mayamae says:

      I think to myself, does she really think she’s going to manipulate him into marrying her in this manner?

      Then I remember, rumor had it back in the day, that Michael Jordan did not marry his wife Juanita until she was pregant and filed a palimony suit against him. The marriage lasted for a long time.

    • Nanette E says:

      I don’t thik it would be in Simons best interest to marry her, He is going to may a slave out of himself to her, its called entrapment Since her other husband is leaving she just wants him as her love slave. Furthermore he should take care of the child but get a paternity test/DNA. She has a pattern and she will hurt Simons feelings later on, after he gets older. Take care of the child if its yours and get a nanny to watch the baby. Marriage does not mean that you’ll be happy, and that she will be a good mother for the child. She lead Simon on and should have not sexually harrassed him and stuck with her husband and tried to work it out, expecially if he was not a wife beater. She took advantage of you in your vulnerable state and is now using that baby to keep a hold on you and its working. Think about that Simon. Your friend Nanette E

  2. rkintn says:

    If he didn’t want to take a chance with knockin’ her up, there were ways to do that. If a man doesn’t want to be a dad, then he should be just as responsible with is birth control choices. He took his chances and got caught. Good luck to the child, cause it’s gonna need it.

    • Zoid says:

      Can he even be sure this is his at this point? I’d want a paternity test seeing as she was still married, plus the husband seems to think they were having no marital problems. Wouldn’t 3+ months of no sex hint at a problem to him? And that brand new engagement ring… HM HM.

      • Poink517 says:

        Yeah, I was thinking the same thing about a paternity test. Whole situation is really shady.

      • Nicolette says:

        Wondering the same. I would think he’d be demanding a test to confirm he is indeed the father.

      • MargoRita says:

        i agree wholeheatedly – I wld imagine this guy of all guys is VERY careful not to get anyone “knocked up” . Paternity test!!! Unfortunately, the children suffer the most…and the OTHER man, but there is a lot of money at stake and the timing is highly suspicious…

      • Ok says:

        If the baby comes out with furry man-boobs………seriously though, I keep reading the stories about gold digging man-trap.

        But I know 3 women who got pregnant while actively using birth control. One was on the pill, one had a Norplant implant and the other had two unplanned pregnancies — one was Nuevo ring and the other was Norplant.

        And , now I did not know the woman personally, but one coworker knows a woman that had her tubes tied and still wound up getting pregnant.

        I do think it is funny that her mother says it is 2013 and things happen. And then says she hopes Simon “will so right” by her daughter and marry her.

        Aren’t the phrases completely opposite ideas??

      • Lisa says:

        Agreed. If I were him, I’d be very skeptical about this baby’s paternity until a lab runs the test — twice.

      • Hakura says:

        I totally agree that the paternity test is required in this case. If you think about it… By having the affair in the first place, she’s already proven that she can be ‘less than truthful’ regarding very important matters (like her marriage, for instance).

        That street goes both ways, of course. But what got me was all the demands she (supposedly) made about Simon getting *her* a showbiz career…

        Makes it pretty obvious to me that the baby was a means to an end, purely to manipulate Simon (or more accurately) his money.

      • trudy347 says:

        I have had the SAME thought since the story broke. If the husband is saying that he’s super shocked, you’d think he’s probably slept with his wife in the last 2-3 months – so honestly, how does the wife know for sure who the father is unless she and her husband really and truly are separated and have had no relations for months. . . . That’s the whole story right there to my mind.

      • Katherine says:

        I thought she and her husband had been separated for a while like a year.

      • Hakura says:

        @Trudy347“… so honestly, how does the wife know for sure who the father is unless she and her husband really and truly are separated and have had no relations for months.

        Perhaps she ‘knows’ Simon is the father (as opposed to her husband) because she arranged it that way? Maybe intentionally not using BControl while sleeping with Simon, but using it while with her husband.

        (I know, I sound so cynical & suspicious, but something about this woman just… makes me think she’s capable of it).

    • Sabrine says:

      I can’t drum up much sympathy for Simon. He’s over 50 and having sex without using a condom. What did he expect? He should have gotten himself fixed years ago like Clooney probably has. But unlike Clooney, Simon is a rich fool just like Pinault impregnating the model. Now he’s got to pay up to the golddigger. She’s really cleaned up here and will reap a lovely payday for herself. Note to Simon – get a vasectomy.

  3. Toot says:

    This is a big old juicy mess. Love it! lol I do feel bad for the 7 year old.

  4. Red32 says:

    I really hate that golddigging skanks like this one get pregnant so easily. Meanwhile I’m going into debt injecting myself with medications.

    • Poink517 says:

      Yeah, that shit is not fair! :( . I hope it works out for you soon.

    • Alexis says:

      I think about people who struggle to concieve each time a story like this comes up. It’s so unfair. Best of luck to you.

    • Alexandra says:

      OMG! I know – me too – injections, pills – $$$ so many rounds of IVF – and it seems like skanky chicks and slores get knocked up with a drop of the hat! Good luck wishes to you!

    • michele123 says:

      been in your shoes. it’s not fun. adopted my son and two years later did in vitro and have a girl as well. don’t give up. it will come!

    • Green Eyes says:

      Good luck Red. I hope it works hon. I totally stand behind your comment +1000! I couldn’t have kids, I was sterile then OVC took my reproductive organs. Yet, others I knew that didn’t want kids or were using em to keep men or assistance could have one right after the other (used to work w/ our State’s Child Support Agency) I’ve accepted it a long time ago.. Just once in awhile a story like this kinda stings.

    • WickedSteppMom says:

      When Hubs & I were doing our fertility treatments, I used to joke that we should get stoned, grab a case of beer & a pizza, and go make out in the backseat of his parents car behind the high school…because that seems to work so easily for so many other people! It was one of those jokes that made you laugh a little, while you tried not to scream & cry. On the flip side, a couple of months ago, I stopped into the RE’s office w/my 8 year old daughter (during lunch, when I knew there wouldn’t be anyone in the waiting room)…just to show them how much she’s grown, and to thank them, again.

    • mayamae says:

      I wouldn’t put it past someone as manipulative as this woman sounds, to secretely be on a fertility med to up her odds.

    • Hakura says:

      @Red32 – My Aunt & Uncle tried getting pregnant (I’m not sure if they used any medical procedures to help) for more than 10 years. While I haven’t experienced it myself, I did see what they constantly went through, & it’s SO hard.

      They had themselves put on the list for an adoption agency, & after about a year, they ended up (because of some lucky circumstances) being offered 2 (a girl & boy, from different families). Then on their 2nd bday, my aunt found out she was pregnant (@ age 44).

      I truly hope everything works out for you guys. (& I agree wholeheartedly that it’s incredibly unfair how certain ‘kinds’ of women not AT ALL suited to be parents seem to have the least trouble getting pregnant.

    • islandwalker says:

      Red32 and the rest of the commenters going through infertility issues: I sincerely hope that you will be able to adopt or have your own child through the injections. These stories make me sick and sad. My eldest stepson and his wife would make amazing parents but cannot concieve, go through the invetro ( because of her diabetes) or afford to go through the adoption process. My other steson is a drug addict with severe personality disorders, who has 4 kids he can’t take care of and we are not allowed to see because he can’t get his life on track. It does seem so unfair when loving people cannot become parents and pathetic users use getting pregnant as a means to better their lifestyles.

      I wish all of you wanting to be good parents the opportunity to have that experience.

      As for Simon, put a coat on it! I have a sneaking suspicion that she has no idea who this poor kids dad is, if there is even a real pregnancy here. Bunch of lowlife pigs. STD’s anyone???? crickets…..

  5. janie says:

    I’m still trying to figure out how he can be so surprised by a pregnancy, when he “thought” she was using birth control? If she was, she was still married.. what about STD’s? He has never come across as stupid, what was he thinking?

    • Toot says:

      Simon was surprised probably because he figured since she WAS still married that she would be extra careful.

      Also, he’s used to the other women from his past that never got pregnant because they knew he didn’t want kids and knew his life style wouldn’t be good for the child. He could trust the other ones, whom he stills associates with.

  6. Embee says:

    “Just a nice girl from Miami Beach.”


    I’m not saying you cannot be from MB and be nice, but this woman frames it like she’s Rose Nylund from St. Olaf. Guffaw.

  7. Tig says:

    “Do the right thing and marry her”?? Gee, it’s 2013, remember? Why act like its “shotgun wedding” time? And if this isn’t Golddigger 101, what is? The level of reprehensible behavior keeps going lower-those poor kids. I also think she’s in for a major shock if she thinks Simon will fund a custody fight for her 7 yr old. I hope the paternal grandparents are sane, bec her mom sounds like as big a piece of work as her daughter

  8. The Original Mia says:

    Lauren’s mom wants Simon to do the right thing. How about her daughter? The married, mother, who didn’t divorce her husband before getting pregnant with her husband’s former best friend’s baby!

    • RN says:

      No, no, see, you’re supposed to overlook that part. Otherwise the mother doesn’t get to express righteous indignation and the daughter is allowed a free pass on her trashy lifestyle.

      The mother here feels very similar to the mother of that Teen Mom who just made that p0rn movie. That one kept expressing what a good, moral Christian her daughter is. Because of course.

    • lucy2 says:

      That part caught my eye too. What a hypocrite! The “right thing” would have been for her daughter to not cheat (with her husband’s friend of course) and not blow their family apart, especially when she has a son to think about.

      This gold digger is a piece of work, but I have no sympathy for Simon either. Just for the little boy caught in the middle of this, and the baby who will always be synonymous with scandal.

  9. aims says:

    I don’t think Simon will marry her. What I don’t understand is, we’re all a certain age now and we know about birth control. As far as her marriage goes, marriages fall apart. It’s sad, but nothing scandalous. I just think it’s odd that nobody was wearing something or taking anything to prevent this.

    • Erinn says:

      It’s called a trap. She told him she was taking birth control, likely realized he was losing interest since it was apparently over shortly after she conceived. She didn’t want to be a grownup and end her marriage like a respectful person, knew he could avoid paying anything if he proves adultery and realized Simon could provide an extravagant living if she had his kid.

  10. GeeMoney says:

    This whole scandal is one big juicy mess… and I can’t stop reading about it.

    If he didn’t want kids, why didn’t he wear a condom? I’ll never understand that about men. Man, I wonder what kind of number that woman did on him to forget to take care of business.

    Oh well. He’s trapped now (make sure to get that DNA test, though). Hopefully he makes the best of it and takes care of his kid if it is his.

    • Alexis says:

      I’m obsessed too. Randomly. Okay, I’m wondering why she made this big press mess. Even if it is Simon’s kid, he’s notoriously generous with his exes. Why wouldn’t he take care of the kid if it is his? It would be out of character for him not to do so. It’s almost like she wanted the press mess so she gets fame regardless of whether it is his. Or maybe she really wants to trap him into marrying her(for more fame and money of course). Lord knows that wouldn’t have happened without the baby.

      • Cam S says:

        I agree. If I were a married woman in an affair and got pregnant, the LAST thing I’d want is the general public to know. The fact that she went public is giving her the gold digger status.

        This could have been handled privately behind closed doors and no one would ever have been the wiser. I mean, think about it- how many love children do you think are out there that are Fathered by famous men and athletes??? My guess is A LOT, but we will never know cause those women have sense to get paid quietly!

  11. T.C. says:

    This is so trashy. Your friend’s wife? Getting pregnant on purpose as the guy is dumping you and your rich husband is about to divorce you? These two make Kim Khardian look classy.

    • Jen says:

      She may be a gold digger, but Simon is no angel. He slept with his Friend’s wife. It does not seem like she tied him up and forced him, so, she may be a “gold digger”, but he did not have to get in bed with her to begin with.

      Both of these folks are gross and if children were not involved, this story would border on being funny in a bad soap opera kind of way.

      • bettyrose says:

        Agreed that both of these two are equally as disgusting, but I have a special rage for women who use pregnancy to manipulate men. No one, male or female, deserves to be forced into parenthood – and every woman who uses her uterus for financial gain weakens the case for all the young women who want to achieve more in life than snagging a man.

    • sullivan says:

      I couldn’t live with this self-manufactured chaos. Some people thrive on it, though. Not only do they trash their lives, they take a sledge hammer to anyone’s life that intersects with their own.

  12. freya says:

    A) Doesn’t anyone in celebrityworld use condoms??? They seem to lioke the strange but don’t protect themselves (and their sexpartners) from std’s??? (and “surprise” pregnancies)
    B) Stories like these always make me think that the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney took the smart route and had a vasectomy to avoid situations like this

  13. Barrett says:

    I guess Simon never wraps it up which is freaky because he seems to be with multiple women even at once. No joke they may be passing hpv or other STDS back and forth. How stupid people can be?

  14. Bridget says:

    So Simon is going to St Tropez with 2 ex girlfriends for a month? Anyone else wonder how that works out? Obviously there are to be some shenanigans, but I wonder: Do the 2 exes like each other? How do you invite someone to go on vacation with you and another one of your exes? Is it just the 3 of them?

  15. Hautie says:

    Oh yea, this is a girl with a plan. And I am surprise that Bravo! isn’t banging on her door with a show, for her to join.

    Then there was that little story in the Daily Mail this weekend. About how this interesting female, had a questionable sexual relationship with one of her married high school teachers.

    So as much as her Mother wants to keep on claiming how this girl is not a gold digger. It is kinda obvious she is not above unseemly behavior.

  16. Tara says:

    This is all so gross. I read that Simon has been hanging out with this couple off and on for about seven years now. And Lauren’s son is seven. So depending on when she actually started fooling around with Simon she never really tried to be a good wife. Maybe the father of her first child never meant anything more to her than a $.so she is on a leash now, although a golden one. If she gets a book deal or reality show then Simon will support the child but scale back on her personal gifts. If she remains discreet Simon will support her and the baby extravagantly but the famewhore door slams shut for the next 18 years. Decisions, decisions. That is why she is testing public interest first with her leaks to the media and making mom give these hilariously inappropriate statements. But she should know the Simon better tgan that. Protecting his privacy pays off much better in the long run. Classy.

    • Alexis says:

      Yeah if I was the husband I would be interested in a paternity test for the older son as well. Not like Simon is the bio dad, but she seems like a habitual cheater, so it might not be Andrew. Poor guy, but his parents warned him about her!

      • Tara says:

        I bet he already had his paternity tested because he knows deep down that his wife plays fast and loose. Poor kid – stuck with the nanny while daddy pimps out mommy to celebrities. Have you seen the pics of the three of them on the yacht? Highly sketch. But i bet Simon’s mom is secretly thrilled to be a nana.

  17. Gabriella says:

    My stepmother got accidentally pregnant too. She was 46 and had IUD for her entire life. Then, apparently, her doctor told her to remove the IUD for some reason and she started taking birth control pills. A few weeks later, she was pregnant. She swears to God she took the pill every day and it was an accident.
    You see, I know everyone’s body work differently, but I’m a healthy, fit 21 year-old with a very active sex life and I don’t use a condom with my boyfriend of 3 years either, so interesting how the pill never failed me and it failed her within weeks.
    Thing is, my father happens to have a lot of money and this woman hasn’t worked a day ever since she got with my father. They had been having problems for a while and when my father decided to leave her, that’s when her pill failed.
    Coincidence? I don’t think so. I have no love for either of those creeps (Simon and Lauren) and I feel very sorry for the children who will be involved in this mess, but my experience tells me that there is a good chance that Lauren lied to Simon about being on birth control. She can always claim that it failed, because there is always a chance that it did…

    • Steph says:

      If she only took the pill for a few weeks then things were not explained to her correctly. Usually people are advises to use condoms for the first few weeks while on BC because it needs to actually have time to affect your cycle. There you go. Mystery solved.

    • RN says:

      Most women know to use a back up method of birth control during their first month of using a birth control pill. It’s stressed when they get the scrip, it’s stressed when the pharmacist hands them the packet, AND it’s inside the literature. Sounds like something broke down here.

    • Lucinda says:

      I worked with a woman who had three kids on three different methods (the third time she was using multiple methods simultaneously), all with her husband. After #3, he got snipped. She declared she was just excessively fertile. So it does happen.

    • Joanna says:

      I’m with you Gabriella. Your stepmom did it on purpose. Women who do that are so stupid

    • Ok says:

      Gabriela — wow. Your stepmother got pregnant at 46 ?? I don’t know that something like that couple not have really been a accident. I mean after 40 the fertility drops like a rock.

      So if she here banking on getting knocked up, she would have really been banking on the longshot

    • Gabriella says:

      I’m sure she did it on purpose. You cannot convince me that in the age of information, two adults would simply ignore birth control. In cases like Lauren’s and my stepmother’s, the whole context of when the baby was conceived makes it pretty obvious that it was not an accident, but rather a very well calculated move.
      I’m disgusted by these women who will deliberately hurt people’s feelings and ruin lives for a good paycheck. It’s like Red32 said above, it is so unfair that these women will so easily get pregnant whilst other women who genuinely want to be mothers won’t.

  18. LAK says:

    My 2p…….IF (big IF) there was a 6wk gap between breakup and now, I call gal with a plan gold digger.

    She made sure the pregnancy HAD taken before re-establishing contact.

    I may not agree with Simon’s lifestyle or George Clooney’s as a matter of fact, but anyone who becomes involved with him (or George) knows the rules, irrespective of whether the men have had the snip.

    You break the rules, as this woman has, don’t expect him to turn into a prince or to treat you with respect all of a sudden.

  19. Deb says:

    I can’t understand why any woman would want to sleep with him

  20. MonkeyTowz says:

    I imagine his child with that same odd haircut. He’s not bad looking, but the hair kills it for me. It’s an entity like Donald Trump.

  21. Kim1 says:

    Simon get a DNA test she was boinking her husband too.Also there is a pic of her touching caressing Simon’s hair while sitting next to her hubby

  22. SoCalgal says:

    I absolutely believe this. All her actions thus far have been typical of someone who was just dumped. The leaking of the pregnancy was all her doing. Simon is an idiot. I feel sorry for this womans son and unborn child.

  23. Talie says:

    He doesn’t wear condoms! He openly talks about this… so, I’m sorry, but he left himself wide open. A man like this should be aware. At this point, I really do think George Clooney was snipped.

  24. tara says:

    Simon is 50% to blame. if you are having sex with someone, that someone can get pregnant. it is a risk you sign on to the minute you decide to get busy and so he’s just reaping what he is sowing.

    i feel bad for her other child. his whole world is being turned upside down.

    • Montrealaise says:

      I feel sorry for both children – her son and the unborn baby. From what I’ve read about this woman, it seems that she is not at all the maternal type and each kid is a “paycheck baby” – the baby you have with a rich man to ensure that, no matter what happens to the relationship, you will always have a large and continuing source of income.

  25. Asdfg says:

    I find it hard to believe Andrew was clueless. There are pictures of him, Simon and Lauren on yachts and she is ALL OVER Simon. You can just tell by Andrew’s facial expressions he knew they were more than friends. Either he is lying or dumb as a brick.

  26. Alida says:

    I surely hope he is smart enough to get a paternity test. Going to bet Simon isn’t the baby daddy.

  27. bsh says:

    Blindgossip has been very clear about the circumstances of this affair. You can read it all on the website. I have no respect for this woman: married, with a 7-year old child, serial cheater and gold-digger. She makes me sick. Simon Cowell is for sure a SOB for shagging his pal’s wife behind his back, but at least he’s not the one who was in a committed relationship, and makes his own money. I hope that Silverman fancies herself some good gossip and stumble upon all the good words we’re throwing at her.. what a skank!

  28. IWantToLiveInNew York says:

    Do you have any photos where he doesn’t look like a douche?

  29. lovegossip says:

    He said that it was over before “everyone” knew she was pregnant, but did not include himself. Probably dumped her after he found out. Otherwise wouldn’t he say it was over before “I” knew she was pregnant? Sounds like it me anyways, but I’m cynical when it comes to these celebs. Lol

  30. Suze says:

    At this point, *IF* the kid is Simon’s he owes certain obligations to the child – financial support/parental involvement/emotional availability – but he really doesn’t owe anything to Lady Crazy Eyes.

    That will be hard to do since all of the above – particularly the financial support – have to go through the mother, but I’m sure Simon, with all his shrewdness and savvy, can figure out something.

    If he marries her or gives her a reality show I’ll eat crow, but I am betting none of those things will ever ever happen.

  31. Sassy says:

    OK – off subject a bit. Does anybody think Lauren had a nose job?

  32. chloe says:

    This chick is holding out for more than money, I imagine as soon as she told Simon he probably had his lawyer write a check and draw up papers to keep her quiet, apparently she’s reaching for her famewhore star in the sky, dragging a baby along for the trip. BTW I hope Simon packed some condoms for his St. Tropez trip.

  33. lisa says:

    do people assume that simon was just a friend of andrew because they are both male? all signs seem to point to simon being at least equally good friends with both, if not better friends with lauren (not counting the possible recent sperm poisoning)

    and yes sassy – nose job, based on that HS pic of her in the daily mail, and breast implants

  34. Alexis says:

    Well, after Kstew scandal and this one thing is clear: the woman will get the lion’s share of the blame regardless. At least in this case that resulted in the right level of blame. Simon and Lauren are pretty much gross and grosser.

    • Amanda says:

      Agreed about the double standard going on. January Jones anyone? Similar siuation except gender roles are reversed. Her threads get viscous, just like this one. Woman is always the one to get the most blame and not the dude who can’t keep it in his pants.

  35. Nanz says:

    Can I just say that if this were me, and it wouldn’t be, my mother would NOT be defending me in the media. She would say, “girl, you made your bed…”

  36. e.non says:

    nothing better for a late summer distraction than a gold digger striking it big time…

    a uk paper has a story about how his parents hated her from the getgo and didn’t even attend the wedding…

    for some reason she reminds me of jerry seinfeld’s wife — who dumped her new hubby of five minutes for him.

  37. truthful says:

    I agree he will not give her what she really wants marriage..NEVER.

  38. mslewis says:

    What a mess . . . I love it!!

    What bothers me most is that Simon is coming off like just a poor guy who is being played by a gold digger while this woman is being called terrible names and made to look like a wh0re! They are both equally at fault, in my mind. It’s a shame that the woman is always the bad one in these things.

    I cannot wait to see how this turns out. Unfortunately, it’s the kids who will be hurt. First, Lauren’s son who is old enough to know his parents are unhappy and fighting and then the new baby who won’t really have a father since Simon will be too busy to care about him. I think Lauren’s husband has already began proceedings to have sole custody of their son, which is not a good thing for a child. Whatever, adults are ridiculous sometimes.

    • LAK says:

      Admittedly this is all media reporting, but it seems the mother was barely with the child anyways, so ex-hubby may as well have the child!!!

    • blaize says:

      Yes, people are being awfully understanding and sympathetic toward Simon aren’t they? A 50-year old guy in Hollywood has an affair with his friend’s wife, and produces a child with her, and gets very little criticism for it other than ‘why didn’t he wear a condom or get a vasectomy’. Not one single sexist slur directed at him in the comments. (Because they’re all being directed at the wife instead) A 22-year old woman in Hollywood has an affair with a married man, and still gets misogynistic slurs directed at her a year later and gets called on how she ‘selfishly ruined a family.’ (Kristen Stewart). How’s that for equality! :D

      • Jayna says:

        Simon is a pig and always has been in his sexual life and never lived his life like the moral authority. This woman has been flying all over with Simon. Her husband obviously knew. She would be at his tapings, in England with him photographed. Her husband is photographed seated with Lauren in his arms as she’s playing with Simon’s hair laying sideways to her. Bizarre? She is mentioned as a close confidant of his in that book written about him. Her husband obviously had no problem with his wife and the closeness she had with Simon. Most men are jealous and possessive of their women. I guess not him. Does it excuse screwing his wife? No. But I wouldn’t put it past this couple to have done a little swinging in their marriage anyway.

        I think most are hard on the woman, not for the affair, but because we are suspicious of how she managed to get pregnant after not being pregnant for seven years. It seems like a golddigger move to me.

        Kristen, past my interest in the story at first, I would never keep judging her. She’s 22. She paid a price for the affair. Let her move on. That brief affair couldn’t have destroyed the marriage unless there were other issues in the marriage also, which I believe there were, since the wife talked about feeling lonely here and him gone all the time and she’s basically a stay-at-home mom. I just think the betrayal was the last straw.

      • Noreen says:

        @ blaize

        I honestly don’t think this is a case of sexism and inequality. I think it’s because everyone has known for years that Simon Cowell is disgusting. Kristen didn’t have that reputation, so it was a real shock to a lot of people (not to me, ’cause I don’t GAF about any of those Twilight people). So I think in Simon’s case the criticism falls to the woman because the affair begs the question “What kind of woman would get involved with a man like that AND be careless enough to get pregnant (or stupid enough to get pregnant on purpose)?”.

      • Tig says:

        Don’t know what you are reading, but no one is giving sleazy Simon a pass for his horrible behavior, at least not on this thread.

        Re KS and her affair- think its a bit much to assume that every married couple is OK with a “little” adultery, which is what you seem to be implying. He got caught out in public, and his wife divorced him. Sometimes that really is all it takes, regardless of the length of time of said behavior.

      • TG says:

        I think it is pretty obvious the Silverman’s have been living a swinging lifestyle and possibly an open marriage and threesomes so it isn’t exactly the same as someone having an affair on the side when the other spouse thinks they are in a monogamous marriage. Yes they are all 3 pigs but it is also clear that this woman broke the code of this strange relationship and is a gold digger.

    • DebraSam says:

      Both equally at fault for sure! Wonder who called the press?

  39. smee says:

    Dear Simon -
    You know what the #1 ingredient for making babies is, right? Sperm. You’ve got it and you can control it – if you don’t want extraneous babies popping up.

    • Bijlee says:

      Lol right? What a dumbass. First sleeping with a friends wife. Second not taking or being aware of birth control. And then the woman he did it with too lol. these people are just classless and so trashy.

      • Noreen says:

        Nevermind birth control. Here’s what I don’t understand: why don’t these men who absolutely do NOT want kids just go ahead and get a vasectomy. It would solve all their problems. I think George Clooney did it. I think that’s why he’s never, ever had a slip-up.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I’m not even entirely sure that George Clooney even has sex, with his back injury. BUT if he does, you know that he got snipped, she has an IUD, AND he probably wears a condom-just in case.

        I mean on an simple overview of the story, it’s entirely possible that it was on accident, if you don’t take into account her past history/behavior. My aunt just got herself outfitted with an IUD for the FIRST TIME, and she got pregnant about six weeks later. She was pissed. But this woman? I don’t think so.

        And I think it’s disgusting that she’s going to be using this kid to get Simon’s money. I had one family member, a guy, who had one daughter. He and her mom were divorced. He died while his daughter was in middle school, and he left his daughter w/life insurance-enough to pay for her college. By the time that girl was old enough, her ovary donator had spent EVERY SINGLE CENT of that money.

        It’s just disgusting the way people use kids like that.

  40. ctkat1 says:

    Well, Simon finally picked a bad one.

    I’ve always thought it was pretty amazing that he has managed to be such good friends with his exes (although being so very generous during the breakups probably helps with the goodwill), but Lauren is not like the others. She’s got a PLAN, and she is working it hard. I doubt she’s going to be content to make the “cash for nondisclosure agreement” swap that the others have.

    This is a MESS.

  41. Funcakes says:

    18 years, 18 years
    She got one of your kids, got you for 18 years
    I know somebody paying child support for one of his kids
    His baby mamma’s car and crib is bigger than his
    You will see him on TV any given Sunday
    Win the Superbowl and drive off in a Hyundai
    She was supposed to buy your shorty TYCO with your money
    She went to the doctor got lypo with your money
    She walking around looking like Michael with your money
    Should’ve got that insured got GEICO for your money, money, money
    If you ain’t no punk holla we want prenup
    It’s something that you need to have
    ‘Cause when she leave yo ass she gonna leave with half

    And on her 18th birthday he found out it wasn’t his

  42. St says:

    I guess I’m the only one who doesn’t care about this story. I don’t even care to read. Just titles. And I try to skip them too.

  43. Jade says:

    I read that allegedly she will cut Simon off from the child if he doesn’t marry her.

    If I’m Simon and she’s a certified gold digger, I wouldn’t marry her. Her living expenses can be supported by the ex husband. If I were to set aside emotional grief of not seeing my child grow up with me, I’d set up a bank account and give the mother access but I’d deposit a fixed amount every month which is dictated by only me. Then she can’t accuse me of not providing for the child financially if she wants to run to the press. And she can’t say I’m not there emotionally since hello she is the one who wants to cut me off from the child. I will also publicly and often say that I am willing to have a relationship with my child if she lets me so that my child can know. As my child grows up, it will not be a secret that he or she is my child anyway. She can do what she wants with my money to raise the child and then when the child is 18 or 21, he or she would be free to spend time with me. I’ll also make sure to have an ironclad will that cuts off any rights for the gold-digger lol.

    That being said I thought Simon would be a careful chap. Oh well, you had an affair so maybe karma yeah?

    I’m not American, so can the Courts order Simon to pay child support since both of them aren’t married?

  44. Paloma says:

    I have to wonder if she felt Simon was losing interest and, therefore, got pregnant. Certainly she can’t think Simon will give up his harem and marry her? Unless she is devoid of any compassion for others, she will regret this some day.

  45. Saffie says:

    This mess just reiterates what I already knew: Simon is a smarmy and unctuous character who treats women like they are commodities. His cards ran out this time.

  46. Lisa says:

    Why doesn’t he just pay her to have an abortion? That would save lots of time and heartache for everyone.

    • Jayna says:

      Pregnant with a 350-million-dollar man’s baby who has no children and that child will be the main heir and you are married to a man you’re bored with and live a lavish lifestyle(he’s worth 70 million) that your pre-neup will never match and no way to earn more if single because you are a bored socialite. Think about it. She would never abort that child. Usually, I would say it’s her belief system, but on this one, I’m suspect. The baby is her ticket to a very, very wealthy, secure life by a generous man, and in her mind, she probably thinks it will hook him. If it was the pool guy’s baby, would she still be keeping it?

  47. Jayna says:

    Simon has departed for his yearly month-long vacation on the yacht. His harem has departed with him, his ex-fiancee, Mezghan, and Sinetti (ph.) (the model). Will this woman end up flying out there or not in the weeks to come? LOL

    • Bijlee says:

      Ewwwwwww that has to be just disgusting. Lol month long vacation he takes every year. Must be so hard to be Simon Cowell. Produces a bunch of stupid shows with the same theme, make money. Gross. I don’t understand what you could do for a month on vacation besides lounge, go to the pool, drink,.., I mean what else is hthere to do? Does he not get bored? It just sounds absolutely dull. They probably go clubbing, and have fancy dinners every night. Would love a fancy dinner. These people are so vapid.

  48. Andrea says:

    My personal opinion is that the couple were swingers, the husband knew that she was banging Simon and he used his connections/luxury vacation homes, she got pregnant, husband was embarrassed, husband asked for divorce, gold digger decided to keep the baby as her golden ticket to fame and fortune (she signed a prenup)

    • lisa says:


      and i will LOL forever if in true springer fashion, the baby doesnt belong to simon or andrew

    • kristiner says:


      This bitch acts like she can’t call up one of the Real Housewives shows and get a spot. She is actually a housewife/socialite as opposed to all those “friends” on the show with NO man and no marriage. Brandi Glanville, Kenya Moore, etc. She’s connected to Simon Cowell. If she called them up they’d set up an appointment.

      She’s a trip if she did this for fame and reality shows.

  49. Elle Kaye says:

    This guy takes his exes on vacations all the time. He must be sleeping with them. And if he is sleeping with multiple partners, he should insist on a condom. Clearly he isn’t, and is putting them all at risk for disease. How anyone can give him a pass and blame her is just beyond comprehension. He is a pig.

  50. Anon says:

    Simon needs to get his lawyers on board with a trust/child support set-up and 50/50 custody arrangement. Perhaps he should hire Mel Gibson’s lawyers. She/they seem to know how to handle a scheming gold-digger like this. (I think the Gibson attorney was a woman, cause men…ugh, look at Gibson and Cowell.)

  51. Jennifer12 says:

    I do not like the attitude of blame everything on the woman, but at the same time, to paraphrase Chrissy Teigen, these are not standards to live by. Every woman is not your sister and not every woman behaves in a way that should be the standard. Simon is a jerk for not getting a vasectomy (I think Clooney must have, or he makes sure there’s birth control) when he didn’t want kids and he’s a supreme jackass for messing with a friend’s wife. But the worst in this is Lauren Silverman. She cheated on her husband and put their son in a terrible, painful position. If you love Simon, separate from your husband and see where things go and do NOT get pregnant. Kids are not pawns.

    • blaize says:

      I don’t think anyone is saying that cheating is the standard to live by. We’re just saying that standards should be applied equally, ‘sister’ or not.

      And that Chrissy Teigen quote? She came up with those quotes because she was being called out for being a sanctimonious bigot. A person like her is not ‘the standard’ to live by either.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Chrissy Teigen wasn’t being a sanctimonious bigot, IMO. I’m not sure who this “we” is that you’re referring to. And, yes, the standards should be applied equally to people who cheat, but to me Lauren is the worst in all this because she cheated on her spouse and did not put her son first. In the same way I think Eddie Cibrian is scum for what he did to his ex-wife and kids, I think Lauren is as well. I don’t care what your gender is; cheating on your spouse is low, and not putting your kids first is even lower. It doesn’t mean Simon is excused for what he did.

  52. prayforthewild says:

    This Lauren woman broke the cardinal rule of these type of arrangements, “Don’t get caught.” Plus, she’s courting the press, Simon is not, he knows the game. That’s why she’s getting way more flak than Simon, all of her publicity stunt decisions have been very stupid.

    In a closed society where everybody’s guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity. -Hunter S. Thompson

  53. Emma says:

    I feel like she knew the type of arrangement she was in.

  54. Suze says:

    To me, the most shocking thing about this story and series of posts is that people still smoke.

  55. Claudia says:

    Apparently she waited a year to separate/divorce from her husband in order to qualify for a $4 million pre-nup payout. Gold digger, thy name is Lauren Silverman.

  56. Lark says:

    This is such a hot mess. Oye. At this point, I only feel sorry for the kids.

  57. lily says:

    Just wondering if anyone knows about DNA
    testing. Say if it’s Simons brothers baby what % of accuracy would there be in that test.

    • Lucrezia says:

      If the result says you’re NOT the parent, it’s pretty much 100% accurate. Exception: weird cases where a kid has multiple versions of DNA. That throws the test right off. It can happen via transplant e.g., a kid with a bone marrow transplant is going to have their own DNA plus DNA from their donor. Or it can be a freak mutation/event at conception (causes something called mosaicism or Chimerism). Both of those show up in crime novels every so often (killer gets away with murder because his DNA doesn’t match the sample!) but they’re extremely unlikely to affect paternity testing because you almost always know who the mother is, and transplants or mosaicism/Chimerism would mean the mother’s DNA wouldn’t match the kid either! (I guess the dad could be the one with the transplant or multiple DNA, but in that case, if the mum was 100% certain he was the one, you could go back and check the father.)

      If the test says you ARE the parent, it’s usually given a 99.99% accuracy, which means a 1 in 10,000 chance that another random man of the same ethnicity fathered the kid.

      Note 1: The ethnicity part is important: if one man is Caucasian and has X gene that only shows up in 5% of Caucasians, then it’s going to suggest the kid with X gene is his. Problem is that X gene might show up in 25% of African-Americans, so if mum has been with a white guy and a black guy it’s going to screw the results. The lab will usually ask for the ethnicity of the potential father/s before the test. (Also, if the dad is mixed race, then it lowers the odds to something more like 99.9% – 1 in 1,000 – because they can’t use the standard race tables to tell them how rare the gene is.)

      Note 2: the random part is also really important. If the two potential fathers are brothers, then the test isn’t going to be anywhere near 99.99% accurate. You can’t put an exact number on it, because two brothers could have 100% identical genes (identical twins!) or no matching genes at all (the odds of that are astronomically low, but it’s possible). If you want a really rough guess, perhaps 90% accurate at discriminating between brothers? (And practically 0% chance of discriminating between identical twins.) Generally, a lab would want to test all the potential parents at the same time. That way they can make sure to keep checking different sites until they have enough data to firmly exclude one of the brothers.

    • Mima says:

      Me too. All the crap you go through with injections, pills, doctors visits and then other women fall pregnant with an unplanned and sometimes unwanted baby. Such a shame

  58. yoyo says:

    hahahah! Talk about getting your come-uppance. Karma’s a B*! He’s been so nasty to so many and yes until now he’s treated his harem (as the press are calling it his gaggle of on and off G. Clooney style girlfriends) well with pay offs and houses etc … But it wasnt enough for girlfriend here, girlfriend here is a majpr stalker psycho “BUT HE LOVES ME!” She wants the cake, to eat it and the baker too. I feel so bad for the 7 yo. This B is not fit to be a parent she’s clearly a delusional narcissist hope the father get the custody and sends the kid to go live with some normal relatives cause the woman’s mother sounds just as crazy. Poor kid (and future kid).

  59. snappyfish says:

    if simon didn’t want to be a daddy he should have gotten a vasectomy. he needs to take care of the kid (assuming he is the father) but he certainly has no obligation to marry this hot mess.

  60. Hannah says:

    As other people have noted the fact the husband thought the marriage was ok and her being 100% certain it’s Simon’s baby doesn’t quite add up.

    I wonder if she has had one of those pre birth paternity tests done? Does anyone know anything about them? Can they be done this early?
