Simon Cowell homewrecked a marriage, gets named in Silverman divorce filing


Yesterday, we heard about the shady situation with Simon Cowell and how he impregnated his good friend’s wife, Lauren Silverman. At the time, it seemed like Lauren and Andrew Silverman were very much still married when Simon banged her and impregnated her, although there are some reports now that Andrew filed for divorce sometime in the last two weeks. But that’s still pretty messy to me. Anyway, there are a bunch of new stories, but I think my favorite is Page Six getting all indignant that Simon Cowell’s people lied to them for months:

Call it the second-ever instance of immaculate conception.

When Page Six reached out to Simon Cowell’s camp in late May about his romantic relationship with Lauren Davis Silverman, we were told that Cowell and the married socialite were just close friends and there was no hanky-panky going on.

Then, lo and behold, reports surfaced yesterday that she’s pregnant with Cowell’s baby!

In May, we’d heard from sources close to Lauren that she and husband Andrew were headed for splitsville so she could be closer to Cowell, with whom she had an ongoing relationship.

The response from Team Cowell was a stern denial. “Any implication or statement that my client is engaged in adultery and has allegedly broken up the marriage of Ms. Silverman is not only false but reckless,” Hollywood power attorney Martin Singer, who’s been called “Guard Dog to the Stars,” wrote us.

Page Six heard from sources in May that Cowell had been seeing Lauren on a long-term basis. “It’s been going on for quite a long time,” one said, adding, “It’s pretty serious.”

But, Singer’s letter continued, “Stating my client’s relationship with Lauren Silverman has become more serious such that she is now getting a divorce so that Simon and she can be together . . . is false and defamatory.” In Hollywood, maybe, pregnancy is not all that “serious.”

In fairness, there was no divorce filing at the time — but Andrew did file on July 15. And there certainly seemed to be some adultery. Us Weekly reported yesterday that Cowell’s baby mama is now “around 10 weeks along,” which — if that timeline is correct — would have had Cowell and the socialite having sex right around the time of our inquiry. Perhaps conception even happened on that blessed day.

However, a source close to the situation said that at the time, “Lauren was not pregnant,” and added, “They were not in the process of a divorce.”

A rep for Singer had no comment.

[From Page Six]

LOL. I love when newspapers/tabloids print the angry denials of publicists, especially when it’s clear that the publicists are lying their asses off for their clients. And Page Six seems to be right about Andrew filing for divorce – not only that, but Andrew Silverman has named Simon in his divorce filing, and Andrew cited Lauren’s adultery (with Simon) in the filing. The NY Post says this move is designed to embarrass Simon and Lauren, but there’s a legal strategy at play too – Simon might have to testify in the divorce case. A divorce lawyer named Martha Cohen Stine said: “It’s really a signal to the spouse who cheated that the wronged spouse is very angry and that it’s going to be a very nasty, scorched-earth, high-profile litigation.” This is going to get good!!

As for the other stuff… a picture is beginning to form, and here’s how I think it’s going: Simon was banging Lauren Silverman because why not? Maybe he cared about her, maybe he was just banging her because she’s pretty and she was there. But at some point, Lauren decided that Simon was going to be her jumpoff and we’re seeing her take measures to let everyone know that Simon is her man and they will be together:

Simon Cowell has yet to speak out about becoming a father but Lauren Silverman, the woman who is pregnant with his first child, is apparently happy about her relationship with The X Factor judge.

“She is ecstatic to be with Simon,” a source tells PEOPLE, adding that Silverman, 36, and Cowell, 53, have been seeing each other for more than a few months.

Although Silverman is still married to a Cowell’s friend Andrew Silverman, the source says she and Andrew are in the process of divorcing.

But her affair with Cowell may not have been the only factor in their split.

“It was probably not the best relationship when she first met Simon,” the source says of the Silvermans’ marriage. “It wasn’t like they were blissfully in love at the time.”

Adds the source: “She was definitely unhappy in her marriage and it’s been a while that the marriage was not great. Andrew is a very nice guy but all marriages don’t last.”

And reports that Cowell and Andrew were best friends also seem to be overstated. “Andrew and Simon were not best friends,” the source says. “They are friends. They have both been vacationing in Barbados for years.”

[From People]

I mean… what are the “sources” supposed to say? This whole thing is a trashy mess. I guess no “source” will come out and say “Yeah, she was banging Simon behind her husband’s back and he didn’t really care. This pregnancy was a big whoopsie, but Lauren decided to keep the kid because Simon is hella rich.” Eighteen years, Simon. She got you for 18 years.

    I can’t see him with a kid honestly.

    • Badirene says:

      Neither can I, honestly a baby may amuse him for a bit but then he will lose interest and move on. Feel sorry only for the baby in this mess.

      Also Simon looks like a gorilla, with apologies to silver backs everywhere.

      • Belle Epoch says:

        Daily New says he assumed she was using birth control and had no idea – now he feels tricked but the bunis in the oven. What a horrible way to create a new life.

        http://m.nydailynews.com/1.1413477

      • anon33 says:

        Sorry, Kaiser, too many F-words :)

        But seriously, these men need to get over this whole “I refuse to use condoms” issue. I am so sick of hearing about how men “get tricked” into having babies with these women-as if they have no agency whatsoever or can’t find it within themselves to go buy condoms. It is such a gender construct and it really pisses me off that these stories are prepetuated by the media like this.

      • Ginger says:

        He’s 53 he should no better than to assume a woman is on birth control… ITA he should have used a condom. Too late now. 18 years indeed.

      • Sal says:

        Agreed. He ASSUMED? He is a rich man and any gold-digger could get knocked up by him to take him for a ride, you’d think he’d be wary because of his position. Most people of that money and status are so careful to not allow themselves to be used and taken advantage of, most people of that status are on the lookout for extortionists and cover their asses. How could he have been so stupid? He *just* assumed? What the? If he really didn’t want kids and was wary about being used, he’d make damn sure she was on birth control and/or use a condom. What a stupid stupid lapse of judgment for someone his age?

    • Ok says:

      Actually I can see him with a kid.

      The man is not stupid. He is extremely shrewd.

      If a woman is pregnant it is because he wanted to get her pregnant.

      He is 53 and he has tons of money. He is at the crux of his life where you start taking stock in the things you missed out on and the things you wish you had.

      And her being a gold digger?? Ummmm she had a wealthy husband. And would likely have fotten a comfortable divorce settlement.

      And nobody seems to be reporting her financial background. For all you know, she has wealthy parents.

      I have a feeling that Simon admires her from afar via a friendship with her and her husband as a couple. And he figured that if the opportunity ever arose to be with her he would take that chance. And this is his chance for family life, future grandchildren and a slower pace as he ages.

  2. Leah says:

    What a mess!

    • Steph says:

      Either 1) Simon is going to stay with her throughout the pregnancy, and while baby is growing up or 2) Simon isn’t going to be with her at all and she is going to get child support payouts.

      But I agree with you, what a mess

  3. Das Spleen says:

    Ugh. I feel dirty just reading about these unethical scumbags. I don’t want to give them any rent free space in my head by thinking about them. Next.

    • Bijlee says:

      I know Simon is freaking nasty. I’ve never understood why any woman would give him the time of day. I mean I got it the dude is rich, but he’s just soo gross it’s not worth it.

  4. Jayna says:

    She’s unhappy in her marriage and wants to be saved. Not an uncommon story that it happens within the couples’ social circle. Many times in suburbia you will see this whether it’s friends, social couples, casual couples you see in the neighborhood at parties, etc., that this attraction and overlap happens. So not surprising. But she’s in la-la land if she thinks this relationship with him will have a happy ending. Simon is Simon. Simon must have been in love though to throw caution to the wind and get her knocked up when at 53 he has managed to avoid it for so long or did she lie that she was on birth control?

    So was she pregnant in this photo when she’s smoking? Nice.

    • Tapioca says:

      Being a natural cynic I’m going to go with the latter. Bless her heart that she thinks getting knocked up is going to result in a happy ever after with the most commitment-phobic man alive.

      Then again, she asked for that nose, so her judgement seems generally quite dubious!

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yes this exactly.

      How old is the pic of them smoking? I really hope it was before she knew she was pregnant.
      She’s really beautiful and looks so much like his ex..too lazy to google….

    • Miss M says:

      @Jayna: Agree!!! Simon wanted to get her pregnant. It was not a mistake.

      • FLORC says:

        Miss M
        Jayna also offered the possibility that she lied to him about her birth control. This happens all the time and sometimes men are just so dumb or willing to accept any reason to avoid a condom. His ex’s were for the most part long term relationships and they clearly held up their end of birth control. 1 more possibility is he thought he was infertile from a long history of trying to conceive.
        Simon has spoken out about not being all that ready for kids and enjoying his care free lifestyle with nothing tieing him down. The evidence stacks to this being a mistake.

      • Miss M says:

        @FLORC: I agree in both counts, I didn’t think about this possibility. Unfortunately, there are women who do use this strategy…So, it could be that too! As a smart man he is, I would think he would not let a “mistake” like that happens… I guess We’ll see!

        Hopefully, this divorce won’t be a bad one.

      • FLORC says:

        Miss M
        I’m betting this divorce will get messy. Especially if she and simon were a thing before the marriage was getting bad. If this was a planned baby Simon’s actions will confirm that, but I think this sounds more like Jeremy Renner and his child’s mother. He will house her and pay her bills until the child is born healthy. Then there will either be a custody hearing or a child support hearing. Ultimately this woman’s only leverage against Simon (assuming he wanted this child) is visitation. The more visitation he wants the more he’ll have to pay. If he doesn’t want much to do with the child he might just pay the minimum child support without leaving anything to support the mother so he’s not her meal ticket. It’s so sad to think the world operates like this, but so true.

    • anon33 says:

      OMG Jayna perfect description. I see it ALL THE TIME.

  5. aims says:

    this will not end well.

  6. Maria says:

    i hope the “only women get labeled homewrecker” people are happy now.

    obviously she is a social climber but he fell right into her trap. i dont feel bad for him, especially if he was friends with her husband, thats disgusting.

    i feel for the kid. knowing you were only born so your mom doesnt have to work and can keep on laying in the sun and a father that hates you because he lost so much money from a simple 3 minute humping session…

    • Anna says:

      Her current husband is actually wealthier and better-connected (outside of Hollywood circles) than Cowell.

    • FLORC says:

      Anna
      Connections and their value is relative. She might see more value in fame and attention. Simon would be the better bet in that sense.
      Simon will fight hard to only pay enough for the kid and not to support her once his interest fades. He’s not the settling down type and enjoys his money for him.

      • Jayna says:

        He was only with Mezhgan for a few years and she ended up with about 7 million to 8 million from him that he gave her in the form of a home and money saying he felt bad he ended the engagement. He is generous. This is his only child. He will be generous with the mother.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Social climber – yup. Goldigger – yup. New York Socialite – really? That seems to be over- reaching. Usually that means Ladies Who Lunch, dabble in charities, have dinner parties with the Right People, etc. Has this woman done ANYTHING (other than marry a rich guy and cheat on him)?

    • Tara says:

      Very presumptuous to say Simon will hate the child. We know why he avoided becoming a father up until now but we do not know how he will feel whem he first looks into the baby’s eyes. He probably will not change his lifestyle one bit and will let the mother raise the baby but i find it impossible that he will hate an innocent child.

  7. Sixer says:

    There is no amount of money, jewellery, kudos or fairy pixie space dust that could persuade me to answer “yes” to the question “Simon Cowell – would you hit it?” (If it were ever asked).

    Ewww to him. Ewww to this mess of a story.

    • Rachel says:

      Word. Shirtless Simon Cowell pics should be banned. There I was enjoying a nice chocolate chip muffin and BAM. Ruined. Completely ruined.

    • Sumodo1 says:

      One word: MOOBS

    • UsedToBeLulu says:

      Seriously!! That man is just gross. Gross looking, and gross in his behavior.

      • stinky says:

        you guys, he must be a charmer. im serious. he must have some charisma….
        he’s probably very engaging and super smart. i dont think its ONLY about the money. some folks just have ze passion!

  8. Sherry says:

    Simon didn’t break up that marriage, she made the choice to break her vows and sleep around on her husband. I’m so tired of seeing the “other person” being blamed for relationship break-ups. I don’t care how sexy, handsome/beautiful, intriguing, etc. the “other person” is, if things are right in your marriage and with yourself, you won’t cheat on your spouse.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yeah but they’re both responsible don’t you think? Maybe her more so than him, but he’s still disrespectful for getting involved.

      I think Jayna best described how the situation likely played out. People love to vilify the players in an affair, but so often it’s not as black and white as we want it to be.

      I still think it’s wrong though. He could have almost any woman he wants, why go after his friend’s wife?

      • kct says:

        Exactly. But sounds like what Jerry Seinfeld did many years ago. Older and single and could have had anyone he wanted, but chose a recently married woman who then divorced her husband for him.

        The powerful always want a challenge. It’s about getting what others think you can’t have and succeeding, and not considering the consequences.

      • Sherry says:

        That may be, but ultimately the decision to betray her marriage vows lies with her. She made that decision, not him.

        It makes him a pretty crappy “friend” but the responsibility for the breaking of the marriage lies with her.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @Sherry-I don’t disagree, particularly in this case, if we are to believe that the marriage was pretty much dead already. But there is a really valid argument to be made that if a person just says NO to having sex with someone who is married (like I would and have said NO to a married dude) then maybe the marriage can survive. I’m not saying that they wouldn’t need counseling but…I don’t know. I just can’t defend people who go after married men/women. It seems incredibly selfish and evil to me.

    • FLORC says:

      Yes! Too much blame goes to the person they cheated with and not the person who decided to cheat. Yes, both parties are guilty, but 1 took vows and chose to break them. The other just had a weak moral compass if they even knew the person was married in the first place.

      • Sherry says:

        I am still friends with my ex-boyfriend from college. He was in a committed relationship (living together) and the woman cheated on him with some rich guy. My ex kept going on and on about how horrible this guy was and how much he hated him.

        I told him, “HE wasn’t dating you. HE wasn’t living with you. HE didn’t make any commitment to you. HE didn’t cheat on you. If you want to be angry at someone, be angry at HER!”

  9. anne says:

    wow poor kid is all I gotta say

    • Belle says:

      ^^This. Both of these people deserve each other, and the mess they have created, but a child does not.

  10. Monty says:

    Yeah, I also dont think this is your typical guy cheats with buddys wife tale. I think these three be kinky. Real kinky. With the sharing and the swapping and perhaps the threesomes. I think that they are a cautionary tale of why you should never try to live out your threesome/cuckold fantasies. You may just find that it is YOU who is the third wheel.

    Also I feel strongly that Cowell wants/planned this kid. Why else would a man in his fifties who has admitted on radio to not using condoms not have had a vasectomy? I wouldnt be surprised if he had one and recently had it reversed.

    • Nev says:

      WORD on the threesomes aspect.

    • Belle says:

      Yep. The pics from yesterday show this chick practically fondling Simon, and the husband was right there?? Difficult to believe there wasn’t some sort of ‘special’ relationship going on. Wonder if something like this will come out in the divorce. If the husband is claiming infidelity by his (soon to be ex) wife, and trying to void a pre-nup, she may very well be inclined to get down and dirty ( ;) )… hubby was actually the bad guy, wanting to ‘share’ her with his friend, and she went along with it only to please him! Would be loads of fun for gossip if there were not going to be a child involved. :(

      As for the baby… not so sure Simon planned it, but it does seem very strange for him to suddenly be careless about birth control. I’m kind of wondering if there might be some dna testing in the future.

  11. Pinky says:

    “…but all marriages don’t last.”

    Well, now, that’s depressing.

    • Georgia says:

      I took a pause at that too, but after I read it a second time I took it more to mean ‘not all marriages last’ — much more positive ;)

  12. truthful says:

    I read that the husbad has an iron-clad prenup too.

    Its been reported that she has had several inappropriate relationships while being married.

    smdh

    she moved on to a much bigger fish, literally.

    • capepopsie says:

      Well, then she´s probably going to have her hands full with this one! Serves her right. Poor Child! What a mess poeple make for their children to grow up in. . .

    • Jayna says:

      I wouldn’t doubt it, and I wouldn’t doubt that her very rich, powerful husband had his own side pieces.

    • lucy2 says:

      I was wondering about a prenup – if she knew the marriage was going bad and that she wouldn’t make out very well financially, next logical step for a gold digger/social climber? Get pregnant from another rich dude.

  13. Yelly says:

    Yeah he seems like the type that this would happen to.

  14. fabgrrl says:

    I don’t like this guy, but really, it’s not the press’ business to know what goes on in private bedrooms. I don’t see anything wrong with Simon’s publicists lying – the question was totally inappropriate.

  15. janie says:

    Wow… With a friend like that? If she did cheat on her husband, I doubt they were close friends. I don’t care who you are, that line should never be crossed. This gal already has another child, where is it?

    • HappyMom says:

      I read yesterday that she and her husband would go off on trips with Simon-the husband would go home after 2 weeks, she’d stay for another 2 weeks. And their son, who’s only 7 now, would be left behind for the month. Ugh.

  16. HH says:

    In the second pic he looks like Harry Potter’s flamboyant uncle. :P Seriously though, what’s up with the man cleavage?

  17. blannie says:

    All I can think about is how vile their breath is when two smokers kiss. As they say, it’s like licking an ashtray. Yuck.

  18. dorothy says:

    I wouldn’t expect anything less from this man. He’s a narcissistic, arrogant little man with entitlement issues.

  19. daisieb says:

    Sullivan?

  20. Dawn says:

    God he is a self-important creep. Why do we keep making a-moral a-holes into millionaires? I mean Simon, the KrapTrashians, anyone on the Housewife franchise on Bravo and the lists goes on.

    • daisieb says:

      I will never understand how the shows you mention have such an incredible following.It is complete anathema to me. I’d like to add Joan Rivers and Howie Mandel to that list. They are nothing but a celebration of everything that is rude, cruel and superficial.

  21. m says:

    Sherry… absolutely!

    There is nothing you could dangle in front of a happily married person to make them cheat.

    It is so easy to blame the outside party… especially when it can paint the woman as a “home wrecker” and the man as under her spell. BS!

    We all make our choices and have to own them.

    • Tapioca says:

      That is technically true, but how many people never go through a bad patch for the entirety of their marriages?

      My own parents would now say they’ve been “happily married for 35 years”, yet there were times during my childhood when I was terrified they would divorce. Luckily they weren’t anywhere near wealthy enough to have gold-diggers circling to provide an understanding penis/vagina to cry on or I’d be even more bitter and cynical than I am already!

      It’s only polite to keep away until papers are filed, especially if there are little ‘uns involved.

  22. Ebbi says:

    A threesome that went wrong was my first thought, yesterday.

  23. Hannah says:

    What a story. I wonder if he will question paternity given that she was still married.

    Can you imagine the emotional Skype conference call between Sinita, Jackie, Mezhgan and the other exotic brunettes. They will be dev. Will this interrupt the annual St Barts trip for all?!

  24. Nerd Alert says:

    LOL my guess from yesterday was way off.

    Anyway, I’m just left disgusted the end result is going to be a privileged, unwanted baby. I believe 100% that Simon does not want children, he has said this numerous times, and this woman must have known that. I mean, it’s sad but people cheat and divorce all the time. Happily married people don’t cheat, IMO, so perhaps it was a long time coming. Maybe she lied about BC, maybe not, maybe he refuses to use raincoats, but it is vile to go through with a wholly unwanted pregnancy.

  25. Feebee says:

    Please God let the fact he’s to become a father make him DO UP HIS BUTTONS!!!

  26. QQ says:

    Idk Ya’ll This is Not Only Pure Rich Trash But also SUPER DELICIOUS, i hope all camps keep leaking like a sieve for my entertainment!

  27. lisa says:

    don’t be silly, wrap your willy!

    and she already has a kid, no way she is moving in with cowell with her kid. he might get her a house nearby.

    • Jen says:

      “Wrap it up” especially if you are going to be doing it with your friend’s wife. I wonder if anyone in Hollywood knows what birth control is when so many sleep around with whoever and boom, someone is “accidentally” pregnant.

      Don’t know these people, but the whole thing is beyond tacky. “Marriage never lasts”—then don’t get married if you already knew that. And some of the headlines on others blogs about what a good father Cowell will be kind of forgetting the circumstances. This couple kind of defines icky.

    • Sal says:

      +1 No glove, no love.
      It amazes me that people think pregnancy is the worse possible thing that can happen. Hello – AIDS, HPV, Hep etc and other STDs still exist, the pill does not protect against these. These especially HIV/AIDS are LETHAL. Pregnancy, is NOT. Far better to protect all bases by using a condom regardless the situation.

  28. Tig says:

    I wonder if there’s some kind of placement for these “accessory” babies- this one and the Kim K offspring? And now there’s a 7 year old in the mix?? These poor kids- guess she wasn’t too concerned about him. And I sure am singling her out bec that is her son, not Simon’s. Both are pretty contemptible here.

  29. Dorothy says:

    A baby won’t change Simon’s disposition; he is who he is. She may want to marry him, so did the women before her with no luck. This will not turn out well for her and I can only keep prayerful thoughts for the child.

  30. bebe says:

    Simon is such a tosser

  31. Kristen says:

    Memo to Simon:

    BUTTON YOUR DAMN SHIRT!

  32. Rita says:

    Obviously, Lauren Silverman exposed all of this for her own purposes. How else could something so private be made public? It could be her husband made this public to better his position in the divorce but this smells of a scheming divorcee. I bet Simon wants to kill her.

  33. Nanci says:

    I wonder how Teri feels. For years, she begged Simon for a child, and he refused, and she claimed his unwillingness to have kids is what broke them up. Now this!

    • Jayna says:

      Teri has moved on and is happy and I think dating someone seriously. She has stayed friends with Simon even through his rebound relationship after their breakup where he was like a puppy dog madly in love with Mezhgan, showing her off and proclaiming his love publically, very uncharachteristic of Simon, and engaged quickly when after seven years he never asked Teri to marry him, and that didn’t break up their friendship. I think Teri loves Simon but is long over him romantically. But she stills interviews him over these past years after their breakup and their teasing banter shows a lot of love and great friendshp still between them. I doubt him knocking up an affair would hurt her. It’s not like this is some big legit relationship with a planned baby. Teri is probably rolling her eyes at this mess.

      of anyone, I think Mezhgan might be the one hurt.

  34. Sumodo1 says:

    Here’s a round of crack-tinis to everybody who’s on the “threesome gone bad” bandwagon. Raise your glass and cheer: “Eighteen years!”

  35. Macey says:

    Blind Gossip had article about this yesterday saying she’s always been a gold digger and was also seeing his brother on the side. They may need to go on Maury to tell who the real father is.

    I always thought Simon had a Vasectomy?? not sure why but he’s always been adamant about not wanting kids so you’d think he would have been snipped. I think there’s a lot more behind the scenes than what is being reported.

    I think it would be real juicy if Simon was secretly helping his BFF get out of a bad marriage by doing this. He’s no dummy when it comes to women. Im sure he knows she’s only looking for those nice child support checks to start rolling in. I have my doubts that this kid is actually Simon’s. I hope they do paternity test and reveal who the real father is.

    Here’s bit from BG..Im c/p…

    She has a long and rather sordid reputation for being a gold digger. Her husband’s parents were so disgusted that he was marrying her that they didn’t even show up to their wedding.

    She cheated on her husband many, many times during their marriage… including the night before their wedding!

    Although her husband is extremely wealthy, she won’t be scoring big in the divorce. He knew of her propensity for cheating, and their pre-nuptial agreement is ironclad.

    We saved the best for last: She wasn’t only sleeping with a music mogul. She was also sleeping with… his brother! He lives in London and the two carried on an intercontinental affair for years. The brother even stayed with her in her New York home at The Savoy while her husband was away on business. Now that’s brazen!

    • Sumodo1 says:

      WHOA!

    • Sumodo1 says:

      Are we slut-shaming Simon or Lauren?

    • TG says:

      If this super rich husband knew his fiancée was a cheater and he could get any woman he wants why would he marry her? Just weird the way people deal with this stuff. And who is she that she can so openly cheat on a guy who is loaded and can get someone else? Wish I had magical powers like that.

    • Lark says:

      Please. This whole situation is out of Jerry Springer central, but Blind Gossip is total bullshit. Remember their dumb Blanda/Joe Jonas scoop? They get lucky on occasion, but come on.

      Well, I find that hard to believe, she was screwing the brother. Wouldn’t he have left her then? And, interestingly enough, his brother has released a statement saying what a betrayal this was to his brother and a tragic story, etc. It doesn’t sound like a man who was screwing his brother’s wife.

  36. Jayna says:

    Sharon Osbourne on The Talk yesterday when asked about Simon not wanting kids said Simon is amazing around kids and loves them. She says he says a lot of stuff, like he hates animals, but she said he really loves animals. She said he will be a great father and is a softy behind the persona.

    He will never marry this woman. The guy gets bored with women and cheats often on his longterm girlfriends even.

  37. EIleen says:

    What a train wreck this story is! Part of me wants to pop some corn and enjoy this but the mature part of me really feels terrible about the child and hope and pray the “adults” here have a true reality check and start behaving in a civilized way,sigh.

  38. Asdfg says:

    So what’s Simon going to do now? The more I hear about this woman the less I like her.

  39. Ron says:

    He broke the guy code. You DO NOT f*ck you friends spouse/ex. It’s truly bad form. All the money in the world does not buy you class, Simon Cowell just officially made himself a Springer episode. On another point, I’ve seen this happen quite a few times, a really wealthy man at a certain age, decides he wants an heir to his fortune and brood mares some woman. Congratulations Lauren your uterus has found it’s calling.

    This whole situation is a delicious bit of gossip!!

    If a man is totally adamant about not having a child, he should have the snip, like George Clooney.(allegedly) If he doesn’t, maybe subconsciously he does think about being a father.

    Remember when Hugh Grant swore he’d never have a kid? Well, he changed his tune after his first one came along.

    Maybe that’s what Lauren Silverman thinks will happen with Simon. Remains to be seen.

    • Lark says:

      Yeah, but Hugh has some sort of relationship with the mother of his two children. They were dating for a while, then they split up/had major issues around the time the kid was born, and then they started seeing each other again and had a another kid. As far as I know, Hugh honestly settled down and is still with her. This kid was born of an affair. I will say it makes me shake my head at the double standards. I can’t imagine how a woman would have been treated if she ended up in the same situation. So many people are going poor Simon (of all things) and blaming this all on the woman already. Sexist.

  41. bluhare says:

    So she’s getting divorced with an iron clad prenup. Nothing like having a gazillionaire’s child to keep the lifestyle going.

  42. Jennifer12 says:

    Um, if you’re unhappy in your marriage, you don’t f— your husband’s friend. You divorce. She isn’t a very nice person, but neither is Simon. This poor kid.

  43. Jennifer12 says:

    Nice…. apparently she has a child with her husband and he’s seven, which is old enough to understand what’s going on. Adults just don’t seem to think they need to be responsible anymore.

  44. Jayna says:

    So where does she live? Because if she lives in NY and she tries to move to California, she will have a huge fight on her hands with her husband on custody of their child.

  45. Jayna says:

    Her husband, 75 million, ironclad pre-nup, marriage on the rocks.

    Simon, 350 million, generous.

    Nice jump off. Pregnancy, smart girl.

  46. lisa says:

    maybe it is a very elaborate plan to get us to watch x factor

  47. Jayna says:

    If I was her, I would worry about Simon with her younger sister. She is so pretty. Lauren will be pregnant. She will probably be paranoid about all of Simon’s girlfriends he’s still friends with. She might look closer to home, instead. He will probably be hitting on her sister. LOL

    And what a creepy photo on the yacht where she’s laying in her husband’s arm’s as he’s sitting up behind her, and Simon is laying sideways and she has her hands in Simon’s hair. Bizarre.

    What an odd triangle:

  48. Dredz says:

    Of all of his girls, this one is the only one MARRIED. So I guess he assumed it was safe NOT to use condoms since she must have been on birth control, no? *LOL

  49. lisa says:

    no one in simon’s main harem has a pretty face. i wonder if he likes to think he is the prettiest one

  50. blaize says:

    Hmmm, I wonder if he will get the same backlash K-Stew has gotten. Will people still be on him about this a year later? Will he be called a skank, a tramp, and a ho?

    Probably not. He’s got a d-ck, after all. :(

  51. Joanna says:

    I don’t get the homewrecker vibe from Simon. He was very generous with his ex’s. I know everyone thinks he’s d*ck but I think it’s just his sarcastic personality. He strikes me as a good person as seen with his generosity with his exes. I think there might be more to the story, like her marriage was already over before they started talking. but she or the husband hadn’t filed yet. and maybe her ex is trying to make simon look bad. because if things were great with her husband were great, she wouldn’t cheat. I just think there’s more to the story. I cheated on my ex, the relationship had been over for awhile, I was just scared to end it. but the guy i had an affair with didn’t break up my relationship, it was already too far gone to be repaired. you can’t really call anyone a homewrecker who has an affair with a married person. because if their relationship was happy, they wouldn’t be cheating. not saying cheating is right, but cheating doesn’t wreck a relationship. it’s just a sign of the already broken relationship. because a person in a happy, healthy relationship wouldn’t cheat. unless they’re a sex addict or someone who has always cheated.

  52. LovesGossip says:

    I always thought Simon was gay! Maybe having a child will make him a little less asshole-ish.

    • lisa says:

      your move seacrest!

    • Sal says:

      :O Simon, gay? BWHAHAHAHAHAHA :D What on god’s green earth made you think that? He is INFAMOUSLY hetro, how could you miss that? Hes a a major MAJOR player ladies man. Simon is as gays as the Pope is a woman. Seriously? roflmao

  53. aquarius64 says:

    I thought Kristen Stewart’s Mini-Cooper mess was disgusting, but THIS.IS.FOUL. And trifling. Your friend’s wife, seriously?! And the wife – talk about a dirty dog dame. That nauseating damage control puff piece from People or any other article is not going clear off the stench from this situation; and an innocent baby is in the middle. The fact that Simon is not getting the scorched earth treatment as much as Kristen did is offensive, and I’m not a fan of hers.

  54. Caz says:

    See…really rich people can be really stupid too. These two people deserve each other. Surprised no-one else has pinged Simon on this yet.

    As if these two will be in a “relationship” 1 year from now. I too feel sorry for the child.

  55. Jasrina says:

    Simon is just…EWWWWWWWWWW…absolutely GROSS to look at!!!!!!! He is simply the ugliest man ever! That Lauren Silverman must be really and truly desperate!

    • lisa says:

      did you see a pic of her husband? he’s gross

      but gold digging often doesnt come with an aesthetically pleasing partner

      • Jasrina says:

        Agreed! Her husband is just as GROSS as Simon. Actually, I don’t even know who is the uglier of the two! That also makes Lauren GROSS, as well! Desperado!

  56. how to say says:

    my friend got pregnant when she was on birth control,she didnt know it untill she was 4 months pregnant.

  57. how to say says:

    my friend got pregnant when she was on birth control,she didnt know it untill she was 4 months pregnant.
    strange thins do happen.

  58. LAK says:

    i love silly season. the gossip is amazing!!!!

  59. Jayna says:

    I never read that book about Simon that he cooperated with and had friends cooperate with the author. But I might read it now. This woman, Lauren, is mentioned in the book as his close friend and confidante. He called her about his engagement, all in love, and it said in the book she was shocked and against it. That takes on a different meaning now, that she wanted more than friendship.

    I think this woman has wanted Simon for a long time and finally had her moment. I think she got pregnant on purpose and thinks they will have a life together. Simon’s people are already leaking out he was shocked and that he is not going to marry her. I think this was an affair gone wrong for Simon and he knows he was set up. LOL
