Simon Cowell ‘horrified’ by Lauren Silverman’s demands for reality show

^^Simon Cowell and the Silvermans, in 2012.

I can’t believe it’s only been 48 hours since we learned of Simon Cowell’s torrid homewrecking, his part in the divorce of two of his close friends, and his impregnation of his “friend’s” wife, Lauren Silverman. Lauren’s now-estranged husband Andrew Silverman named Simon Cowell in his divorce filing, citing Lauren’s blatant adultery and making it sound like their marriage was NOT on the rocks when she began banging Simon behind his back. Lauren has been trying to do damage control as well, making it sound like she was in a horrible marriage and she turned to her friend Simon (and banged him repeatedly) and now they are in love and of course he’ll marry her. What’s interesting too is that Simon has not issued one word about this so far. It’s amazing. So, obviously, this situation gets worse by the minute, so let’s go through some bullet points:

*Lauren is expecting Simon to be financially generous no matter what, and his friends are basically saying that at the very least Simon will financially support Lauren and the baby. A source told The Mail, “Simon has given all his exes houses – so of course he’s going to be generous to his own child… he has not even considered not looking after this baby. Anyone who knows him knows that he’s generous to a fault. Lauren keeps saying that she just wants to be with him, she’s so in love with him, they’re very good together. She makes him relax and have fun. She’s fun loving, she loves a party and a giggle. Simon’s himself around her, she’s been good for him. He’s so happy.” Uh-huh.

*As for Simon’s “generosity,” The Examiner has a really good piece on Simon’s dating/engagement history and how he financially supports his exes. Basically, he buys each ex a mansion and gives them a cash settlement (or palimony) in return for what amounts to a nondisclosure agreement. Simon doesn’t want them gossiping about him, but to be fair to him, it seems like he ALWAYS takes care of his ladies no matter what. Sources also say that Simon overlaps relationships – he cheats on his girlfriend with the woman who is about to become his new girlfriend.

*Simon may have met his match with Lauren Silverman though. A source tells The Mail, “Lauren is now going around telling people that she will be in charge of all his [Cowell’s] properties around the world and has demanded a country home in the Cotswolds. She has also threatened not to allow him access to the child unless he marries her. Lauren has also started to push Simon to turn her into a reality TV star. She wants her own show like the Kardashians and has already apparently started filming the pregnancy. Simon is horrified and has said no. He [Cowell] is already talking about creating separate baby wings in all his homes for Lauren and the baby. His mansions are huge and he will effectively be allowed to carry on with his own life without disruption.” OMG. A Golddigger & A Homewrecker. Perfect television show. Simon could executive produce it!!

*The NY Post has some of the most epic reporting about what’s happening – the longest, most intensive article I could find is right here. Some of those quotes came up in yesterday’s post… let’s see if I can find some new stuff… Andrew Silverman’s brother tells the Post, “It is an unbelievable story of betrayal. It is a sad story and a tragic story.” Proof: Andrew had just bought Lauren a new 10-karat diamond ring.

*Some “friends” say Andrew and Lauren “weren’t estranged. The suggestion that she was an estranged wife who fell into another man’s arms is not the case. She is a total gold digger. The pregnancy was by design.”

*The Silvermans met Simon Cowell seven years ago and struck up a close friendship. Sources say Simon and Lauren have probably/definitely been boning for more than a year, again, overlapping with one of Simon’s relationships with another woman.

*As for the money stuff… Andrew is wealthy, but Simon’s wealth dwarfs Andrew’s. Simon and Lauren have already hired lawyers to fight Andrew in court. One of the biggest points of contention will be custody and support of Andrew and Lauren’s seven-year-old son. The divorce and custody battle is probably going to get awful.

*A source close to Simon: “The pregnancy has taken him by surprise. Simon thought this was a casual relationship. The pregnancy was not planned. There is no question Simon will want to be part of the baby’s life.”

*Last night, Simon finally made a public statement. At a public event, he joked, “Am I missing something?” He went on to say: “Unfortunately, I have to keep this for the moment private. It’s just one of those things. But thank you very much anyway. I would love to [talk], but I have to respect a lot of people’s feelings right now. There a lot of things I will eventually clear up when the time is right, but I really have to be sensitive because there’s a lot of people’s feelings involved here.” Lauren made her own statement too: “I am committed to sorting things out with Andrew as amicably as possible to ensure the well-being of our son. I would hope for some space and privacy in order to work through this.”

    This whole situation is so twisted. It’s bad enough to cheat, it’s a whole different level with the wife of your very close friend. Yikes. Doesn’t she have a kid by her husband, too? Surprised by how much of a pass Simon is being given by the American media. He must have a really good PR person, and not to mention the usual double standards regarding men and women…but still.

    • Noreen says:

      He’s being called a homewrecker, so I don’t know how that’s a pass.

      Furthermore, celebrities both male and female get away with TONS of crap, so I think at this point the public is just resigned to the bad behavior of these egomaniacs. It’s not that he’s getting a pass, it’s that his behavior is “more of the same” from the Celebrity Culture in general.

      • Ok says:

        Well I think that they get away with tons of crap because infidelity is not uncommon.

        How many people on this board have cheated?? Many maybe.

        How many people on this board are with their significant other because there was cheating and they are now coupled with their fellow chee – tee? Probably many.

        I can tell you I was faithful to my husband while I was married. But I do not ever feel haughty or self righteous when it comes to infidelity. You just never know what the situation is.

        How do I explain better?? They look at Joann Woodward and Paul Newman as this romantic, healthy, enduring marriage. But they both left their respective spouses to be with each other.

        So it is hard for me to get all judgy about infidelity because you just never know about the complexities and the emotional pain involves.

        And I also noticed she is having a boy ????

      • Lark says:


        I’m not particularly judgey either when it comes to personal relationships and affairs. Their business and own personal mistakes, imo. Now when it comes to someone beating their wife a la Sean Penn, then I get judgey and angry. I’m just surprised because the press usually goes hard on people who end up in situations like this, and he’s not getting it that bad. No front page tabloid stories, for example.

    • Kitten Mittens says:

      It’s stated in the article they have a 7 year old son together and custody/child support is expected to get messy.

    • Chutzpah says:

      I feel ill defending Simon Cowell – but as I always say it for the ladies I suppose I better be equality aware.

      The single person is NOT the homewrecker!

      • L.S. says:

        I so agree with you. Alas, not many see it the same way. If my spouse was cheating, I would not even bother with the other person; I would squarely put all blame on my spouse. My spouse is who took vows with me. The single person, while rude and should know better, didn’t take those vows.

      • Violet says:


        I have to disagree with as you on this issue. As far as I’m concerned, the other person — whether male or female — is indeed the homewrecker. What’s even worse in this case is that the husband was supposedly a good friend of Simon’s.

        Shame on both of them for their betrayal. My heart goes out to the little boy whose family has been destroyed as a result.

      • holly hobby says:

        Tell that to LeAnn Rimes. She never recovered from not being the homewrecker.

      • Ok says:

        Chutzpah — excellent point.

      • Jan says:

        It blows my mind that Simon has never gotten any of his other girlfriends pregnant, that he was a responsible person in that area and now, all of a sudden, he has gotten this woman pregnant. I pegged him for a smart man, but this is just dumb if he didn’t use birth control. Definitely needs a DNA done to prove this baby is his which I am sure he will have it done.

      • Chutzpah says:

        Well Violet you certainly have a strange way of looking at marriage vows then…

        A home can only be wrecked if a person IN IT decides to do so…

      • Violet says:


        I agree that the homewrecker needs the cooperation of the spouse, but you seem to be giving the third party a free pass.

        People who knowingly get involved with someone in a committed relationship are being incredibly selfish — especially when child(ren) are involved — as well as self-destructive.

        Simon could’ve avoided needless drama and heartbreak if he’d just stuck to dating single women.

        Both Simon and Lauren must’ve known that there would be major fallout if their affair came to light.

        The only fun part about this whole mess is seeing the player get played. I bet Simon would’ve just shrugged off his lost friendship with the husband and the bad PR, but he’s going to have to deal with having a child with a woman he probably only ever considered a temporary side piece.

      • Chutzpah says:

        That’s some twisted logic right there Violet – I guess you must be speaking from personal experience to not see what you are saying is bizarre.

        ‘the cooperation of the spouse’??!! Are you kidding me? Yes I am giving the ‘other’ person a free pass – you know why? They aint in a committed relationship! They need a darn sight more than ‘cooperation’ to get involved with a married person.#

        They need the married person to make a decision to BREAK THEIR VOWS.

      • Melanie says:

        The third party not a homewrecker? LOL, tell that to an ex- friend. She’s a secretary for large accounting firm and goes out of her way to flirt and sleep with her married co-workers. Never mind the single guys, she finds the married ones a challenge. Gives her some sort of sick pleasure. I dunno you guys, some of the stories she told me…yeah some of the guys were just cheating jerks who would bang anything that walked by. But she would definitely go to extreme lengths to get the really faithful seeming ones. Like stuff I don’t think I can even write here LOL! I’m just saying, if I were a guy it would be hard to pass up. And when the guys marriage would crumble she’d just laugh about it. I think that’s some seriously bad karma. Some people are viewed as prey by sick and twisted minds. Hence we are no longer friends, she just was too creepy.

      • Violet says:


        I really don’t understand why you think my logic is so bizarre. The cheating spouse deserves the lion’s share of the blame, but both people are well aware that they are betraying someone’s trust. And, in this case, jeopardizing a young boy’s home life.

        You seem to think that Lauren deserves 100% of the blame, and that it was perfectly acceptable for Simon to ignore the fact that their affair would devastate Lauren’s husband and break up her son’s family. From where I stand, both Lauren and Simon were reckless and irresponsible with other people’s hearts.

        In short, we’ll just have to agree to disagree.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        @HollyHobby- Leann was married at the time she cheated with Eddie. She cheated on her then husband.

      • Hakura says:

        @Melanie – Wow, your ex-friend *really* sounds like the *definition* of a sociopath…’lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience’. Sounds like a very good thing you got her out of your life. 0_o

      • Hakura says:

        Re: Homewrecker – My feelings are this. Only the people who have made vows/promises to each other are responsible for the ‘state’ of said home, wrecked or otherwise. The single man/woman offering the opportunity to be unfaithful are not wrecking the home. The spouse/significant other *accepting* their offer, choosing to break their promises/vows, is the one ‘wrecking’ their ‘home (relationship)’.

        But don’t get me wrong. To me, (knowingly) choosing to ‘be with’ a married person is downright wrong/morally reprehensible & selfish. Not only is it an enormous disrespect for the significant other/children involved, but for the institution of marriage & trust.

        (Cheating is one of my ‘especially strong moral feelings’ buttons, obviously #~_~# )

    • BW says:

      Yeah, he is being called a homewrecker, but he’s not losing any of his TV shows or endorsement deals (if he has any). He’s not being given the treatment that Paula Dean is being given, so Yeah, double standard. I think what he is doing is equally reprehensible.

      • Lem says:

        Paula Dean wasn’t sleeping with the help, they’d have let her keep her job for that.

      • The Original G says:

        You think that consenting casual sex in a circumstance that you don’t know the details of is as bad as racism in the workplace?


      • Kitten Mittens says:

        Racism happens all the time in work environments. Paula grew up in a different time without hate behind her statement except when she referred to that man who mugged her at gun point back when racism was prevalent. And even though that word is bad all around technically she did use it by it’s proper definition.

        So, since racism happens every day, everywhere we should give all that treatment Paula got. Her brother seemed to be the hot head racist in that family. She was just naive, ignorant, and still living in the 50’s. She clearly longed for the days of her childhood, but not for the slave or racism aspect.

        If she never admitted to using that word years ago all the racism claims from her former employees would have continued to flood in like they did for years and she would still be insanely wealthy.

      • rtms says:

        Racism is a whole different kettle. I would compare this to the Kristen Stewart/Rupert Sands thing. Once again a big Hollywood mogul gets away with clear cheating and nothing is done to him, while a woman does more or less the same thing and is vilified for it.

      • Tara says:

        @kittenmittens You are determined to be an apologist for Deen. That is fine but i insist you read the complete, unedited transcript of her deposition first. It could save you some embarassment. It makes people feel better to think Deen was destroyed because of one understandable slip of the tongue that happened decades ago. Lets be real. When Deen insisted that the black waitstaff dress as house servants at her brothers plantation themed wedding that was not in the 50s. And they wanted to pay them with beer for God’s sake. Remember this whole suit becaused of sexist, unacceptanle working conditions. There are sworn statements from people that worked for Deen that would make you and your grandmother clutch your pearls.

        Deen got what she deserved because she made millions based on our willingness to accept her into our homes and our lives as a wholesome, caring, butter-soaked, awe shucks lifestyle maven. Now that we all know better the contract should be torn up. She destroyed the terms of her appeal and this is what happens. Martha Stewart is still acceptable because she never tricked us. We have always known she is prickly perfection. And Simon’s situation does not even apply. His industry is entertainment and if we started holding them to standards of morality we would only be able to watch cartoons.

      • Bread and Circuses says:

        Protip: Compare like to like, i.e. use Kirsten Stewart as your example, ffs.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        What’s happening with Simon isn’t even the same thing as Kristen Stewart’s situation-whoever asked (can’t remember).

        This will not screw up Simon’s work plans. Simon has never upheld himself as the paragon of virtue i.e. it isn’t going to do anything for his pr or his future job opportunities.

        Kristen was the one who held herself up as something real and true-all the while sleeping with her married director, which is as cliché as one can get. Add that on top of a snotty, unprofessional attitude in interviews and red carpets-as well as her not even humble behavior in the aftermath (“keep ’em guessing” when asked if she and Rob were together AFTER the affair broke out).

        The only reason she had all this “power” was because of Twilight. That’s probably the biggest reason why a lot of the producers wanted her. Because they hoped to get some of that Twihard money. Piss off the fans, you piss away the money too. And that’s why Hollywood has turned away. We’ll see if she can move away from it; show some humility.

      • LAK says:

        Virgilia Coriolanus – yep. Simon has never presented HIMSELF as a paragon of virtue whose reputation depended on public opinion. He is pretty open about the strippers and more AND the many ladies of his harem so any pearl clutching sponsors are too late as far as this latest ‘scandal’ goes.

        Honestly, the only party i can see being embarrassed by this is the woman in question [for she’s no lady]. If she or her husband thought this would embarrass Simon, they backed up the wrong tree since Simon pretty much cops to his misdemeanours when they become public and always takes care of the situation. If anything perhaps this was a way to force a quickie divorce as opposed to embarrassing Simon.

    • Holden says:

      Agreed, although I’m really not sure who would want to be friends with Simon Cowell in the first place. The guy has made an enormous fortune being a world class a hole.

      • LAK says:

        People are delusional and need a straight talker to set them straight. If Simon is your definition of an A****** then you need to get out more.

    • emmie_a says:

      Simon is sort of being given a pass because the more you read about Lauren, the shittier and shiftier she sounds. They’re both bad but one is worse than the other.

    • Jayna says:

      Not really. He is a bad boy who is a producer in the pop world. Not many people care because he has never claimed to be some upstanding moral authority, and the public doesn’t know the other two people. And it looks like the husband doesn’t want a stink either and will settle the divorce quietly. He traveled all the time and his wife is off hanging out with Simon. What does he think is going on?

      Natasha Richardson left her husband and stepchildren for Liam Neeson and publically declared her love for him. The husband gave an angry interview when it first happened and then it moved on. No one much cared after that except probably the gossip in the theatre community and their friends.

      Tom Hanks left his wife for Rita Wilson. It just never came out because his wife didn’t break the news anywhere. He admitted to the adultery years later in an interview.

      Affairs have always been around in celebrityland and in music and in everyday suburbia, in other words, everywhere.


  2. Lulu86 says:

    like i said before Simon usually seems very guarded in relationships and in great control. I wonder what happened that he ended up being in this mess. this woman is despicable too.

    • HH says:

      I’m 99% sure this was the “I’m on birth control” lie. Of course, birth control isn’t 100%, but that’s what I’m going with because she seems more happy than shocked.

      • Fritzi Schnitzer says:

        ITA, and to announce it publicly at ten weeks? Not even out of the first trimester? This woman was on a mission!

      • Pinky says:

        Despicable She.

      • anne_000 says:

        Simon knows that lots of women want 2get pregnant by him & get paid massive amounts of child support for the next 18 yrs. So why didnt he ever get a vasectomy & store containers of his sperm somewhere?

        I think by now, he knows this ‘birth control’ excuse already, so he knew that the final responsibility of not having a surprise pregnancy was on him.

    • Mayda says:

      I was thinking this too. I’ve always kinda liked him – I find him endearing for a lot of reasons – but it’s VERY clear he’s a control freak (and I don’t mean that in a bad way) so this whole thing is just such a weird surprise. People have affairs all the time and often with wives/husbands friends/siblings/co workers so I’m not really gonna come down on him for that.

      Regardless, I call GOLD DIGGER.

      • Lisa says:

        Agreed. The only reason I ever watched AI or The X Factor was for Simon. He’s not “nice” in the traditional sense, but most of the time he said nothing worse than what I was thinking.

      • me, myself and i says:

        Gold digging has been around just as long as cheating…so let’s not get upset at her either. Let’s give them both a pass.

    • emmie_a says:

      Maybe he thought he was safe because she was married? From what I’ve read, she is only saying NOW that the marriage was over, to save face. I think this was her plan all along.

    • Ok says:

      I think he wants her and he wants a baby with her

    • gogoGorilla says:

      Poking pins in the condoms, maybe??

      Also: great. Now I cannot stop hearing Kanye’s Golddigger.

      • LAK says:

        That song has been stuck in my head since the June with each new baby being born.

        It’s horrible since we should believe all the PR images perpetuated by all the mothers, but as the song goes,’She ain’t messing with no broke!’

  3. RocketMerry says:

    Poor Andrew. But you know, he’s better off without her.

    Simon totally deserves her: two of a kind.

    • Kitten Mittens says:

      He was wrong to sleep with his friend’s wife, but she’s horrible to have secretly planned to get pregnant to trap him. She’ll get what she deserves, but soon there will be an innocent child in the mix that will only exist because it’s mother is a gold digging cheater using a child as a pawn.

    • emmie_a says:

      I sort of agree that Simon deserves her — but I think she is such a vile gold-digger that Simon is actually the better of the two, which isn’t saying much for a man that will sleep with his friend’s wife, but sort of explains just how despicable she is.

  4. lisa says:

    well, he should be horrified

    for years he kept that horsefaced harem tight and now this

    he should have married one before his train jumped the rails

    • Badirene says:

      I am surprised that he did not have a vasectomy to be honest. He was so adamant that marriage and children were not for him. Maybe he should start thinking with his head not his pants.

      Poor kids.

      • Lucinda says:

        This right here. He’s old enough that he could have easily had a vasectomy by now if he knew he didn’t want children, which it’s pretty clear he didn’t. They are both in the wrong. It’s unfortunate a child is in the middle of it all.

    • GeeMoney says:

      LMFAO… “horse faced heirum”? I cannot stop laughing at this comment.

  5. Suze says:

    Man, she one-upped him and beat him at his own game.

    But you know, when you do it with a child it’s pretty disgusting.

    Here’s hoping the kid has some good nannies and that he and his big brother support each other through what will probably a three ring circus of a life.

    • brin says:

      Totally agree. I really feel for the poor kids. The “adults” are shameful.

      • Suze says:

        Case in point: Someone leaked this to the media and I highly doubt it was from Cowell’s side. It was probably a strategic move from Lauren Silverman to force her divorce and push Cowell into some kind of action.

        And then she pleads for privacy to “sort things out”!

        This is a mess – this woman is trouble from the word go.

    • Babalon says:

      Agreed. This is just…gross.

  6. JL says:

    Wow it seems she’s a bigger bitch than he is!

  7. CandyKay says:

    Reminds me of Jerry Seinfeld’s wife – she was a newlywed when she started dating Jerry. Some ladies are always looking to trade up.

    • Gia says:

      No way!!?? Really? She always acts so holier than thou. I find golddigging to be just one of the most despicable behaviours. Might as well call yourself a prostitute as far as i’m concerned.

      • CandyKay says:

        Yeah, they met on the treadmills at a health club. Jessica was wearing her giant diamond from her first husband at the time.

      • lisa says:

        you gotta watch out for the mousy ones, some times still waters run shady

      • Liberty says:

        She met Jerry right after she got home from her honeymoon; her marriage lasted four months from wedding to divorce. Her line was that her relationship had been hard for 5 years and she was forced to marry (her husband’s dad was some NYC sports biggie) like it was the 1600s and meeting Jerry magically gave her the strength to run away from her new husband a couple of weeks post-honeymoon.

        Yeah. Hahahahaaa. Gold digger. I wonder if they have a clubhouse in Manhattan, these tough fortune-hunting pros with hearts of gold.

      • holly hobby says:

        Her first husband wasn’t exactly a pauper. He’s from the Nederlander family who owns all those Broadway venues. I guess he didn’t have enough money like Jerry. Still very shady. I didn’t even buy her stupid cookbooks and I remember Jerry mean girling some other author who had a similar cookbook (there was a lawsuit?).

        Jessica – not even her real name, it was Nina – is a fake and I can’t wait to see her leave Jerry too (she will for bigger fish).

    • Jayna says:

      They actually met a short period of time before the wedding at the gym and a flirtation/attraction, whatever, something developed. She went ahead and married her husband and then whatever happened happened after and she left him for Jerry, who decided he really wanted her.

    • Ok says:

      You know what I always suspected about Jerry Seinfelds wife ?? I think ahe dumped her first hubby because he backed out of having kids.

      She married a super wealthy trust fund man and took up with Jerry 3 weeks after she got married in a blow out wedding in Italy

      She and Seinfeld dated, he dumped her, a few months passed, they were seen out again in November and they were married in December and she had her oldest daughter 9 months later.

      It was a huge scandal at the time at the height of Seinfelds fame.

      But I think she wanted kids ASAP and made it known to her hubby. And I think the hubby backed out of having kids right away and really pisses her off.

      And I think her terms of getting back with Seinfeld were that they get married and have kids immediately and he agreed

      Then again, I am some chick who reads too many gossip stories, so what do I know. .

      • Jayna says:

        No, I agree with part of your post. She definitely ended it with Jerry because it had been a while, maybe a year or a little less, and no engagement. Like many women, she ends it because he won’t commit and she wants marriage and children, and then after a month, he missed her and proposed.

      • Tara says:

        If what you say is true then this is a disgustingly selfish woman. Will she teach her kids that the end justifies the means? So this woman had no idea whatsoever that the man she married did not want children? I doubt he lied to her and i doubt he put his foot down and said no kids whatsoever and i wont change my mind. That kind of a**hole doesn’t give his bride a lavish dream wedding in Europe with all her wishes fulfilled.did he get her down the aisle and then say ha i tricked you, guess what, no kids! Oh puh-lease. And if she loved the first guy how did she fall out of love in just a few months and hook up with an old flame? Oh yeah, the old flame happens to be a multimillionaire celebrity comedian. Makes a lot more sense now. And even if this story is just a little bit true then this woman and her shrink need to figure out why her need to reproduce is stronger than her morality, ethics and common sensewatch out, Jerry, this one likes to uptrade. Either way they deserve one another.

        Brilliant! I was wondering this morning: has there EVER been a powerful man who didn’t get into trouble because of sex? It’s not rocket science, but the professor is absolutely right! Wars have been fought, presidents have been humiliated, kings have changed religions… I think the history of the world is really written by The Penis.

    I find the whole situation very puzzling. Cowell always reminded me of Clooney as far as his women were concerned: generous, discreet, slighly tacky, but chacun à son goût.
    And I would have betted that he had a snip long time ago.
    I wonder if it’s his child – but there will paternity test for sure. He is keeping it very tight right now, but let’s see how this whole situation plays out.

  10. Diana says:

    Lauren says she’s in love and seems to think she’s in a proper relationship with Simon.

    The $64 million question is: Does Simon feel the same way about her?

  11. kibbles says:

    Simon is smarmy as hell, but I really believe that he will be a part of this kid’s life and, of course, give the kid whatever material goods s/he needs or desires. His generosity with his exes shows that he’s not the worst douchebag in the world. I think he is and will be a million times better to his child and Lauren than François-Henri Pinault was to Linda E. and their son or the millions of other deadbeat dads in this world who don’t take care of their children. That should count for something. I also think this kind of stuff happens all the time amongst both the rich and the poor. Affairs and accidental pregnancies are nothing new, but it is a but surprising that Simon of all people let his guard down with this woman. She probably planned to have his baby for a long time. This might have been an accident on Simon’s part, but this woman seems to have planned this pregnancy. She wanted to get out of her marriage and find someone richer she could hang on to for financial security as well as fame which Simon can give to both her and their child.. Since Simon isn’t the marrying type, she decided to get pregnant. She should, however, watch her step and not be a total fame whore or turn Simon totally against her. He has the money to take care of them both without problem, but I doubt he wants to assist Lauren in fame whoring their child or this entire scandal. Too bad he got this gold digger pregnant instead of one of his exes who would have been a much better partner to him and a better mother to his child. I’d love to see George Clooney get beaten at his own game too.

    • Alexis says:

      I don’t like to see people being “beaten” by bringing innocent kids into the world but it has been happening forever I guess. Besides at least george and simon’s women know the terms of the game and play voluntarily. We are only just starting to see baby baiting among celebs. I think it is tacky, tbh. And it doesnt often work out well for the kids. You see situations like salma hayek’s daughter and the disfavored son who was born from a fling with Linda evangelista.

      • Stef Leppard says:

        I believe Linda at first said she didn’t want anything from Pinault and then later changed her mind. It seems like a different situation.

      • LAK says:

        I am not defending Francois Pinault, but it was made very clear in the courtroom that he never wanted kids with Linda. It was a deal breaker for him especially as she got herself up the duff AFTER just a few dates in what he considered a fling. He asked her to abort, she made it equally clear that SHE would do no such thing and more importantly would look after the kid herself with no support from him.

        Enter billionaire no 2 who looked after Linda and her baby. No efforts were made to get any support from Francois during this time.

        Fastforward 4yrs later, Linda and Billionaire no 2 break up, her multi$$$ contract with L’Oreal is ending, and she realises she needs to find money to keep her lifestyle.

        So back to Francois she goes. The court transcripts for what she asked for were quite revealing. If you looked at the sum total, it appeared that she wanted to match whatever settlement Salma’s kid has. The breakdown of the money revealed that most of it went to mummy support including the statement that she never wanted to be left alone with the child and thus needed 24/7 nannies for him.

        If it were me, i’d have demanded physical custody since the mother isn’t taking care of the child nor had any intentions of doing so. For that money, i’d put it in a trust and have the kid come live with me.

        I feel very, very sorry for that child because neither daddy nor mummy want[ed] him. It’s all there in the court transcripts.

        Luckily for everyone, financially he is taken care of and Linda is back with her Billionaire no 2.

    • Lem says:

      His game appears to be sail about and I’ll take very good care of you for life. This B* seems to have gotten greedy and changed the rules.
      He’s notoriously generous. He would have done her solid.

      She had no need to get pregnant. That’s not beating; that’s cheating. She should be ashamed.

    • ataylor says:

      The problem with her plan is (and for the record I’m not wishing any harm to anyone involved) that while she’s busy counting her chickens before they hatch, there’s the really big possibility of her miscarrying. Then what? She’s left without Simon or his million dollar offspring AND without her not-quite-as-rich-but-no-pauper-either husband Andrew.

      She’s stupid. A stupid, greedy woman. She already had the brass ring. She better pray she carries to term, otherwise she will go down in history as a massive gold-digger FAIL.

  12. The Original G says:

    I dunno. Simon’s not a fool and not really known to be a liar either. I’ll stay tuned for more details before I make up my mind. Mrs ” we’re so happy and in love” sounds craaazy to me.

  13. val says:

    Oh Simon, this is what happens when you think with your “other” head.

  14. Masque says:

    The woman who desperately wants a reality show is asking for privacy? Mmmm, okay.

  15. Haley says:

    I feel bad for her son, and Andrew.

  16. Tig says:

    This whole situation is beyond horrendous – and those “relations” saying how “wonderful” this pregnancy is??? How tacky and clueless- guess it is wonderful if all you are looking at is child support payments.

    Meanwhile the 7 yr old gets treated to his first pap stroll yesterday – with all this money, can’t arrange to have him picked up at the door? What folks do to kids- grrr!

  17. Amanda says:

    How is this surprising? Of course the woman who got knocked with Simon’s baby wants to be famous.

  18. sunny says:

    It’s pretty obvious that these people are swingers. Simon has a harem of women and the body language on that boat vacation seemed pretty clear, with Lauren playing in his hair with her husband looking in. The close friendship was/is a threesome. But now that there is a baby (which could be anyone’s) everyone is looking for a payout.

    • Jayna says:

      Simon’s only threesome would be with two women, not with a woman and a man. He’s too arrogant to share another woman at the same time and I don’t see him with a man.

      Now, I do believe this guy knew his wife was servicing Simon every now and again and it turned him on and was fine with it. That photo was creepy. Some reports said Lauren and her husband were pretentous. They have money, but Simon is huge money. And I bet the guy liked running with Simon and his crowd.

      • sunny says:

        I didn’t so much mean boy-on-girl-on-boy-on-boy (or whatever) as that they were passing this woman back and forth, or spit roasting her. I’m certain hubby didn’t just discover his wife was getting it on with Simon. I don’t think anyone involved has old-fashioned values, or needs/deserves anyone’s sympathy.

    • Masque says:

      ^^^This. Granted, I’m firmly on Team Tinfoil Hat so I just assume most people in the higher echelon of money (regardless of how they get that money) are a bunch of kinky swingers. So I see this as a swingers-gone-wrong thing and less of a cheaters-got-caught thing.

      • Anon says:

        Seems you are correct, Team Tinfoil 🙂 she is claiming as per TMZ that her husband knew everything. Gotta give props to the women who post here, you’ll got it right again 🙂

  19. Aud says:

    What the hell is so attractive about this man? His moobs?
    I’m imagining it’s his bank account.

    • aang says:

      Really? What lady could resist those furry moobs?

    • Gia says:

      No need to body shame the guy. Jeez, he’s middle aged for Chr-st’s sake…what’s he ‘supposed’ to look like?

      • fabgrrl says:

        Truly. He looks like a 50 year old man who gets to the gym now and then. He doesn’t pretend to be an Adonis.

    • lisa says:

      i have to say that i think he looks a lot better than her husband who kind of looks like his ancestors never evolved all the way

  20. Alexis says:

    I’m not confident that it is even his baby.

    • Kelly says:

      I know. If the marriage was not on the rocks how can she claim it is Simon’s for sure unless there was NO sex with her husband?

      Bottom line, they are both bad. Her for cheating, and Simon for cheating with the wife of a friend. Heck, going after a married woman at all. Blegh.

      • lisa says:

        ita, remember when janice dickinson had stallone’s baby then the DNA test said hold on a minute

    • Assistant Rachel says:

      Exactly! A husband buys his wife a 10 karat diamond and she’s NOT sleeping with him. Hell, I’ll marry the guy 🙂

  21. Kiddo says:

    I feel really sorry for her husband. This reminds me of the Seinfeld situation, in a way, only worse, because Simon was friends with the guy. What a douche.

  22. MellyBee says:

    I wonder if Simon has asked her if its HIS baby? I would be wondering if I was him. She sounds like a piece or work FOR SURE.

  23. Simonsayswreckahome says:

    S and l became friends seven years ago. She has a seven year old son…she had a new born when their friendship started? How long has the affair been going on.
    10 weeks or longer…7years?

  24. Jenna says:

    You really struck gold with this one, didn’t you Simon?

  25. Lila says:

    Simon will probably provide for the baby financially….Beyond that, who knows. This is a man who just impregnated a friend’s wife, and it sounds like he usually cheats on his girlfriends. I’m not getting the sense here that he cares about people’s feelings all that much. Whether he’ll turn out to be a good father to this child is anyone’s guess.

  26. truthful says:


    Simon be sure to get a paternity test, I’m sure he will though.

    She could have boinked her “estranged” husband and its his kid.

    I betcha she’d be sooo pissed off!! hahaha!

    cause she wants to be a “supastarrrrrrrr”

  27. janie says:

    I can’t understand for the life of me how Simon could or would betray his close friend this way. I understand he feels entitled, but this is so wrong! If you look at photos, she’s leaning on her husband, while running her hands thru his hair? WTF is with these people? I do think she got pregnant deliberately. I read he said he thought she was on birth control? My word… ever hear of STD’s? Duh? Your banging your “friends” wife! Use protection!

  28. fabgrrl says:

    I don’t understand the marry me or else threat. How can she deny him access to his own child, if he wants it?

  29. Drop Bear says:

    My take on what went on –
    She and Cowell were having an affair. They got caught and there is an iron clad pre-nup she had with hubby to say if she cheated she gets zilch!

    She gets pregnant to ensure that the spondola keeps coming in as she has never actually worked a day in her life.

    Cowell is not talking because he cannot say hand on heart the kid is his. The moment the poor little tyke in this mess pokes his head out it a DNA swab will be the first thing in his mouth and someone will be paying

  30. Margaret says:

    I just sense something very fishy beyond the cheating and friend fishy. Like she has played Simon and her Husband simultaneously.

    • emmie_a says:

      Fishy is right. There was a blind item yesterday that said she targeted Simon by getting intimate with Simon’s brother first. That led to an introduction to Simon… and this mess!

      And I think it speaks volumes that her husband’s parents didn’t attend their wedding because they didn’t like her. How right they were!

  31. Cam S says:

    Swingers? That’s my guess. Dude let Simon “borrow” his wife and she liked it. There is no way that husband didn’t know they were diddling around. Look at their body language in front of him. He is upset now that his wife decided to get that $ and fame.

  32. mel says:

    I just think every time there is a post on this mess I want to microwave a huge bowl of popcorn…pour my giant size diet coke and sit back and watch this epic show go down.

  33. Mandy says:

    Wow, this is all so twisted. You know this Lauren chick has got to be CRAY. Simon is really in for it, now. Good luck dude!

  34. emmie_a says:

    The first time I saw a picture of her I thought she was pretty but the more I read about her and her gold-digging ways, she turns ugly. And I hate that such a vile woman is getting exactly what she wanted: money and fame.

  35. Tara says:

    I guess she aced the audition. Maybe America should phone in or text their votes on the outcome of this trainwreck. The poor kids.

  36. Chris says:

    I ain’t saying she’s a gold digger, but, if the shoe fits….

    And Simon’s an idiot for not wrapping it up. I guess when you’re that obscenely wealthy, you don’t worry too much about the financial consequences of your actions. And let’s face it – that’s all he’s worried about. Does anyone REALLY think Simon is suddenly going to become a doting dad on this kid? No way.

  37. Bijlee says:

    My god. You see these shirtless pics and you just wonder…WHY???? Why would anyone want to sleep with this prick? He’s so nasty. Does money make you blind?


    Pay up simon. Take care of your baby mama and her baby. Sorry dude. That’s the risk you take when you consent to a physical relationship with someone who is already in another one and don’t take the necessary precautions.

  38. Mew says:

    They’re not going to get married, he’s not going to be hands down full time daddy, he’s going to pay this woman silent and out of his life and move on to the next. It’s just pretty amazing that this man didn’t have brains to not get her pregnant.. like so many pointed out, should’ve wrapped it up or gotten a vasectomy.

    Oh well, the lives of the rich and gold digging and all that.

  39. YvetteW says:

    IMO the Silverman’s had an open marriage. Simon thought OK cool. The Silverman’s started having problems. Hmm. Check prenup. Hmm. Look at Simon. Check prenup with another lawyer. Look at Simon again. And here we are…

  40. Violet says:

    Oops, my reply went to the wrong spot.

  41. The such as you read through my head! A person to learn a lot close to this particular, like you composed the ebook in it something like that. I think which you can apply a number of pct drive an automobile what it’s all about property a tad, nevertheless other than that, that would be ideal website. A terrific read. I’m going to certainly back again.

  42. Jaxx says:

    If she is such a gold digger I wonder why she would marry a guy with an iron clad prenup?

    • Jayna says:

      When you marry into wealth and social status (old money), they all have pre-nups to protect their family fortune, and maybe he was the only one she could bag. LOL

  43. Lisanna says:

    I applaud the husband for suing on grounds of adultery and exposing the affair. Everyone should know what Simon and Lauren have done so they can protect their own marriages. They are both selfish pigs who hurt many people in pursuit of some pig slop.

    95% of relationships that begin as affairs crumble within 2 years because the traits that made them possible, deceit, thoughtlessness and selfishness make their way into the affair. And they will never be able to trust each other since they both condone adultery. Their affair is doomed. Will Simon want to marry a faithless cheater? Not likely…

  44. Bee says:

    Can someone please explain to me how Simon Cowell is friends with all his exes if he is such a douche. Not just once-in-a-while-bump-into-you-and-say-hi friends but like really good friends with some of them, especially his longest with Sinitta, Terri and Mezghan.

    They all love him, are good friends with him and have good things to say about him. Even Carmen Electra who he dated for a few months had nothing but praise for him.

    Here’s a rundown of all his exes:—798641

    I think there’s something to be said about a man who remains on such good terms with his exes.

    • Jayna says:

      Mezghan is still working for him and was seen leaving his house. I like that she’s not lazy. He gave her many millions. So I guess they are still great friends. I thought she would be brokenhearted over this and plus to learn he was cheating on her with this woman. I think his generosity with Mezghan was huge for being together a couple of years and at least it makes you feel he really cares about you and your future. Fat chance ever seeing Lauren work a day in her life. He will be paying out bigtime to her. Plus she lives in NY and has a son. He could have picked someone better to impregnate and still be able to be in the baby’s life when the relationship ends. This woman I bet will be trouble down the road.

    • Suze says:

      I don’t think he is – in general – a horrible human being.

      However, in this situation, he seems to have made a huge error in judgement.

    • jogtah says:


    • Violet says:


      He stays “friends” with his exes, because he basically pays them off. He’s known for being extremely generous after breakups, with the ex usually ending up with a cash settlement and very nice digs. And help getting jobs in the entertainment industry, if that’s what they’re interested in.

      Basically, he treats the women in his life like prostitutes. Which they essentially are, for the most part.

      He’s admitted he’s pretty much incapable of fidelity and he’s so addicted to nicotine that he’s gone on record as saying that sometimes during sex he wants “to hurry up and finish” so he can have a cigarette. His favorite thing is getting orally serviced, because then he can smoke at the same time.

      Simon is a terrible boyfriend — and obviously a sh*tty friend — but a great sugar daddy.

  45. Anon says:

    Did Oksana Grigorieva open up a school for gold-diggers for how to get pregnant from wealthy men…(again and again)? I think this Lauren must have attended. Simon needs to apologize to Andrew Silverman, perhaps they should google Oksana’s manipulations on Mel. Play by play. Oksana went to the media, claimed she was all that, large and in charge. Play by play, Ox and Lauren are two peas in a pod.

  46. Jennifer12 says:

    Simon and Lauren deserve each other, but her son and this new baby don’t deserve to have these selfish people in their lives. People who willingly cheat with those who are married are foolish, insensitive and wrong. People who cheat on their partners are doubly wrong because they made a commitment and if they don’t want the commitment anymore, they should not be in the relationship instead of sneaking around and hurting others. Lauren’s son is old enough to understand and be taunted about his mother’s behavior and be deeply hurt by her actions. As for Simon, if this guy is his friend, he’s even slimier than thought previously. I don’t care how many houses he buys for his exes.

  47. SORAS says:

    Funny how she had her son 3 years into her marriage – not straight away – and it’s been 7 years since she had her son, with no intervening pregnancies that we are aware of. Suddenly, after 7 years, she becomes pregnant again.
