Simon Cowell ‘pressuring Lauren Silverman to settle’ her divorce case quickly

I covered most of this weekend’s Simon Cowell-Lauren Silverman drama yesterday – go here to see the post. From what I can tell, Simon has decamped to St. Tropez with two of his ex-girlfriends (his “harem”) for some rest and relaxation. He’s also getting his head together and trying to figure out how to deal with a married pregnant woman (whom he impregnated) who has TMZ and Us Weekly on speed-dial. I do have to admire Lauren’s game here – she’s coming across as a clinger and a golddigger, but seriously, this story is so much fun because the conventional wisdom is that Simon’s chickens are coming home to roost.

Meanwhile, Lauren and Andrew Silverman are in New York – I think she’s in the Hamptons, and Andrew has been coming and going, maybe? They seem to be talking, although everything seems to be in flux. The new story coming out of the Silverman Camp is that they’re trying to work out some kind of divorce settlement privately (with leaks to TMZ and Us Weekly just in case, I suppose). And now TMZ reports that Simon wants to be left out of the legal crap:

Simon Cowell is upset … very upset he’s in the middle of what is becoming a bitter divorce between Andrew Silverman and Simon’s soon-to-be baby mama Lauren Silverman, and he’s pressuring her to settle … sources with direct knowledge of the situation tell TMZ.

We’re told Simon HATES the bad publicity, which he feels is making him look like an underhanded cad. Our sources say Simon has painted a clear picture to Lauren — the money she’ll get from Andrew is minimal because of their prenup, so any significant cash will come from Mr. X Factor himself.

We’re told Lauren is nervous and doesn’t want to upset Simon, so she’s feeling the heat. Her problem — she and Andrew are at odds over custody of their 7-year-old son, and she feels she may have to give too much in order to end things and appease Simon.

Although both sides have said they want to resolve the divorce amicably for the sake of their kids, we can tell you there’s a lot of bad blood on both sides and it’s getting really nasty.

If Lauren is feeling like she’s giving up too much, then Andrew Silverman is playing this really well. While I think it’s scandalous/good gossip to report that Andrew had “no idea” Lauren was banging Simon, I actually think he probably knew. I don’t have any proof or anything, I just think Andrew probably took it as a compliment that Simon was banging his wife (some men are like that). And now Andrew is playing the victim of his tarty wife and her douchebag lover, and that’s fine. It’s a great legal strategy.

Other stuff – the NYDN has a story about Lauren having an “affair” with a married teacher when she was 16 years old, but I consider that either statutory rape or simply gross on the teacher’s side. And the NY Post (another outlet getting a lot of strategic leaks) says that Lauren and Simon weren’t using protection because she thought she couldn’t get pregnant. Uh-huh. I wonder if that’s what she told him.

Simon Cowell’s married squeeze didn’t trick him into knocking her up — because “the truth is that she didn’t think she could get pregnant,” a source told The Post yesterday. Two-timing wife Lauren Silverman — who has a 7-year-old son with cuckolded hubby Andrew — “had been trying for a long time for another child in the past when things were better between them, and she had suffered a few miscarriages,” the source said.

“She and Simon were not using protection because doctors said she couldn’t get pregnant,” the source said.

The brunette beauty allegedly began bedding the tart-tongued “X Factor” judge in 2011, after Cowell befriended Andrew and began socializing with the couple. The source also said that Lauren’s parents “are delighted she is pregnant with Simon’s child, partly because there’s a baby on the way, but more that the father is a wealthy celebrity who will take care of her.”

“The only fear is that because of her history of miscarriages that she might lose the child and end up with nothing,” the source said.

Sources also knocked down a report that Cowell dumped Lauren six weeks ago, before learning that she was expecting his child. One source said the two were spotted together in London a few weeks ago, while another said Lauren has been bragging to her friends in New York that she and Cowell are “together, and I want him to marry me.”

Cowell flew out of Los Angeles on a private plane Friday night to escape the paternity scandal and is planning to spend at least a month cruising the Mediterranean on a yacht with friends.

“He is running away from the whole situation,” a source said.

But another source said Cowell’s quick getaway doesn’t mean he plans to kick Lauren to the curb.

“There is not much Simon can do at the moment,” the source said. “He can’t be with Lauren while she is still sorting out her divorce.”

Despite slapping Lauren with divorce papers in which he accused her of adultery with Cowell, Andrew spent the weekend with his wife and their son in Bridgehampton. Although Lauren is expected to score between $3 million and $4 million under a prenuptial agreement with her betrayed husband, the couple is reportedly gearing up to battle over child custody.

[From NY Post]

This quote is really bothering me: “The only fear is that because of her history of miscarriages that she might lose the child and end up with nothing.” Um. She’s not worried about the emotional or physical tragedy of miscarrying. She’s worried that if she miscarries, she won’t get all of the money she wants. And that Simon won’t marry her. Gross.

    I have to wonder if her glassy coked out crazy eyes and smoking cigarettes may have something to do with her history of miscarriages.

    • Ok says:

      If she has a history of miscarriages, then why did they make the announcement at 10 weeks ???
      Why did she even bother telling her husband and Simon before the first trimester was completed??

      • lisa says:

        she needs as much time as possible to ride its coattails

        you cant tell me there isnt a possibility that simon isnt the father

    • SW says:

      I want to know how they know its Simons. It’s early, she was married….was she not having sex with her husband?

      • Monty says:

        You know this is exactly what makes me think that the husband is on spin mode. And that they were actually done/separated when Simon came in. That everyone in this equation is so sure who the daddy is, implies that everyone knew what was happening. Simon is sure its not the hubbys and vice versa.

  2. brin says:

    Um, he needs to get both of his heads together.

  3. Zoid says:

    Gross all around. Gross to demand he marries you because he knocked you up, gross to use a child for a paycheck, gross to allow your wife to be screwed by your best friend. (If Silverman knew.)

    • brin says:

      Maybe they can be on a reality show and call it “Ick Factor”.

    • emmie_a says:

      I don’t think the husband knew his wife was banging Simon.
      Simon may have money but he is NO prize, unless your only criteria is cash. Why would any man take it as a compliment that his wife could bang Simon Cowell? I’m sure there are hundreds of women who have banged Simon… so?!? I don’t get this rationale at all.
      Of course Simon was Lauren’s prize because all she sees is dollar signs — but just because she’s like that doesn’t mean her husband is as well.

      • Zoid says:

        It could have stroked his pride that his wife was being coveted by another (wealthy and famous) man. Maybe he just recognized the attraction and not that they were cheating together.

      • lisa says:

        have you seen the husband? he looks like baby huey if he had been born at the jersey shore. based on the pics of the 3 of them, i have a hard time believing he didnt know. knowing simon could have given him additional business contacts, who knows?

      • emmie_a says:

        Lisa: Yes I have seen the husband. Not sure what his looks have to do with this. He may not be a hunky guy but neither is Simon.

      • Monty says:


        Thats not how the cuckold fantasy works. The fantasy is that your woman is with a “real man”. Some cuckolds define “real man” by penis size, others by body size, others by bank account, others by power and influence. Who knows what this guy considers a “bull”. And yes I know far too much about that lifestyle (long story).

      • lisa says:

        emmie – regarding the husband’s looks ,i was responding to your post that simon is no prize. neither is the husband. except in the wallet.

      • bluhare says:

        Example A of Why Looks Aren’t Important in Affairs: Charles and Camilla.

  4. Lassie says:

    He knew. You don’t have that kind of money without not knowing what’s going on with all you control.

  5. NerdMomma says:

    “We’re told Simon HATES the bad publicity, which he feels is making him look like an underhanded cad.”

    Look like? I’m pretty sure it’s showing that he IS an underhanded cad.

    My bet is that this is a scam in which Andrew is very much involved.

    • TG says:

      Ooh, that is an interesting theory. I have no doubt that they are all swingers/open marriage/threesomes types of people but that they are both in on the scam is good. But that would mean that Lauren is in a plan with her husband to make him even richer and she seems like someone who is very much out for herself so can’t see her helping her husband out if he is losing money or something. But, who knows. I was even wondering if she is faking her pregnancy trying to get him back and then praying to God that she does indeed get pregnant. I am sure women have tried that one too and succeeded.

  6. Noreen says:

    I just don’t understand his upper body at all. Anybody care to explain it to me? It’s so WEIRD. Like, this waistline looks normal, even a bit buff, but then your eyes start moving up towards his shoulders and it’s like…WTF is happening? The way he spreads out and then he’s got gross, soft man-boobs. He’s just gross to look at.

    Boy, he sure loves his cigarettes.

    • Ennie says:

      He probably had liposuction in his waist or other parts a some point, then he gained weight again.
      Supposedly, when one gets liposuction, and then do not maintain the required weight, the problem is that one will get fat in weird areas, because you do not have the fat cells that used to keep the weight. It has to go elsewhere.
      I think in Simon the weight now goes to his boobs and arms and unusual places instead of his gut. That os why he looks so funny.

    • Ros says:

      I’ve noticed this too – i reckon Lipo is to blame!

  7. Jennifer12 says:

    I can’t see the husband knowing, but maybe he knew Simon found his wife attractive and took it as a big compliment. One way or the other, Simon is a prime jackass for what he’s done, especially because he’s a family friend. And Lauren? I won’t put her down for her situation at 16 because she was a kid, but she does seem to end up in seedy situations. What she did to her husband sucks, but what she’s done to her kid is a million times worse. If she’s jetting all around to sneak off with Simon, what time does she have for her current kid? The poor little guy must be so embarrassed and upset. And she dragged him out for a photo op at a toy store, too.

    • TG says:

      Just saw the pics how disgusting that she is suddenly taking her child to a toy store when everybody knows she spends her days on yahts or otehr vacays away from her son. She is disgusting.

  8. Dawn says:

    I think this is as gross as KK marrying someone for 72 days so she could feel like a princess for a day and make some money for herself and family all in one. I believe that Silverman knew and more than likely these three have been rolling around together for some time. I have never like Simon so I think he is getting what he deserves but I feel bad for this baby being born to a mother who will do anything for fame and money and a father who thinks he is all that. Pretty much what happened to poor North West so maybe in the future the two of them can bond over it.

    • FLORC says:

      Why bring up KK? The people that despise her the most are always thinking about her… Creepy. She’ll only go away when you stop paying attention so you must want her around.

  9. FLORC says:

    That quote is disgusting!
    He was dumb to not use protection too.
    A baby is not a golden ticket or a pawn for your get rich quick strategy… This woman is a piece of work. If she does miscarry, Simon will take care of her for a bit, but then cut her loose since the association will continue to taint his image.
    This situation is awful. These people are awful. This poor baby. God willing if it is born it’s going to have baggage.

  10. BLA says:

    “While I think it’s scandalous/good gossip to report that Andrew had “no idea” Lauren was banging Simon, I actually think he probably knew. I don’t have any proof or anything, I just think Andrew probably took it as a compliment that Simon was banging his wife (some men are like that).”

    I’m so confused about how a husband could take another man moving in on his wife as a compliment…it boggles the mind!

    • Sandra says:

      We’re talking wealthy, celebrity and celebrity hangers-on here. Whole other class of people here not living in the real, ordinary world.

    • Ok says:

      Hey, there are men out there that like to WATCH while another man bangs their wife. I never understood that.

      Maybe the husband took it as a license to have an affair of his own.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        oh geez, I can’t believe I didn’t remember this. Okay, true story.

        In my neck of the woods, this couple that my aunt and mom knows is getting a divorce. Why? Because the wife had a boyfriend-the husband was fine with it. BUT the only reason he was cool with it, is because he wanted to watch them have sex. Which he did. And so everything was fine, until she got pregnant with the boyfriend’s baby. All of a sudden, it wasn’t so cute and funny anymore.

        So I’m guessing that’s what happened here…maybe the husband thought it was cute and saw it as an ego boost, until she got pregnant.

      • lisa says:

        i know a girl who developed a crush on her boyfriend’s cousin. the bf said it would be good for her to sleep with the cousin to “get it out of her system” but that he would watch because then it “wasnt cheating.”

  11. Liberty says:

    She seemed to have no problem leaving a 7-yr-old child behind to chase Simon Cowbells around the globe for how long?

    So my guess is that she’ll grip on tight to the son for the child support payments, and give up rights if the Simon cash deal seems worth it, knowing she can pocket some X-Factor cash while tossing out a ‘poor me” to the press now and then to look like a tragic mother. I smell reality show for sure.

    The “giving up rights to appease Simon” is probably for useful media play. Had he invited her on this yacht trip with Sinitta, she’d probably be out there oiling up right now, without the boy, without a care. Poor son, poor baby. She is like a well-heeled version of David Letterman’s stalker, in a way. Obviously, Simon is a jackass and epic douche too, so….two warthogs sewn up in a velvet sack together I suppose.

    • blannie says:

      “Two warthogs sewn up in a velvet sack together” — good one!!

    • Lady D says:

      What do you think Simon would do if she were to show up unannounced at the yacht? Doesn’t Famewhore 101 teach how to follow your prey, and insert yourself into situations? Think he would give her the boot?

    • TG says:

      God @Liberty your comments about the warthogs sewn up in a velvet sack and the twins comment is so freaking funny and my vivid imagination can totally see this happening.

  12. Jayna says:

    A new story is being released about three times a day about this and many contradicting each other. About half are made up by rags filling the pages as usual on a scandal.

  13. emmie_a says:

    Ok if she had miscarriages in the past that means that she COULD get pregnant, so her excuse that she thought she couldn’t get pregnant is a huge lie… not surprising coming from her.

  14. Pinky says:

    Right. ” ‘The only fear is that because of her history of miscarriages that she might lose the child and end up with nothing,’ the source said.” And it’s still early in this pregnancy. That’s why people don’t reveal until after the first trimester. And even then you’re not out of the water.

    So she might not get the payday she’s banking on? And we’re supposed to feel sorry for her for that? I only feel sorry for this child, should it come to fruition/make it to term. Gross, soulless people continue to breed, Welcome to your world, innocent spawn.

  15. Lindy says:

    I wonder what her logic was in announcing the pregnancy at 10 weeks. Was it some kind of sick calculation that she wanted to get the news out before a possible miscarriage?

    Otherwise very odd to announce at 10 weeks, particularly when you’ve had many previous miscarriages.

    And excuse me for being low-minded, but how does he know the baby is his? And not, say, the husband’s, or some other poor fool? Is it possible to do a DNA test at 10 weeks?

    • Jayna says:

      She didn’t announce it. It was leaked to the press and I bet it was her husband, not her. He, obviously, had only found out recently she was pregnant with Simon’s child and I am sure furious. My bet is on him to embarrass them as payback for embarrassing him. He or someone in his family probably was the first source.

      • emmie_a says:

        Jayna: Not sure how accurate all these *sources* are but supposedly Lauren had been telling people about the baby. So you can’t automatically blame the leak on her husband.

    • Ok says:

      Maybe hairy man-boobs and cigarets on the ultrasound ???

      I just don’t think that Simon is disliking this publicity. Simon loves any publicity. His only regret was that Lauren and Andrew were not X-factor judges at the time the news broke.

  16. Leah says:

    I lol´d at the excuse for why simon is jetting away on vacation with his harem. As if he couldnt be there to support her if he wanted.

  17. L says:

    She also timed the divorce so she would hit the 10 year mark in the pre-nup. All of these people (with the exception of the poor husband), make me want to hurl

    • Ok says:

      I don’t think 10 years is significant in NY. I think it is significant in California but not NY

      • emmie_a says:

        Ok: Per their prenup, 10 years was a significant number. It doesn’t have to do with NY law, it has to do with their prenup agreement.

    • Jayna says:

      Anybody getting a divorce would do the same thing if it was a significant jump. I wouldn’t have an affair, but if I was unhappy in my marriage with a husband who was never at home and if it was just a matter of time of leaving him, if six months to a year ensured my future better, you better believe I would stick it out. This guy is worth 70 mlllion, so four million to her isn’t going to break the bank, plus child support, etc. Most couples drag on in unhappy marriages anyway for years, because they’re busy and focused on the kids and divorce later as the kids get older.

      Any good divorce lawyer will steer you that way if you consult them. My friend went to a divorce lawyer who never told her if she waited six months to hit the ten years she would be eligible for some of his Social Security. I recommended the lawyer to her and couldn’t believe it. She had a child with him, so was a very important thing to have known and would have waited six more months to file had she known.

      • TG says:

        That’s what I was going to point out if you are the first spouse you are entitled to share social security benefits after 20 years even if you remarry but not sure if that is relevant for rich people like Lauren Silverman. I don’t believe Lauren has been unhappy that her husband is never home. How could she be when she is never home either and if he is away working to support the lifestyle she wants how can she complain. All of these people are gross pigs.

  18. lisa says:

    i guess sinitta and the girls are setting up a baby sitting chart in case the baby is simon’s

  19. Hahahaa says:

    Not even if i get payed for it.Period!

  20. Sandra says:

    No matter what story she spins, Simon is the one who will ultimately make the decisions about her future.

    If the kid is his (presumably there is a paternity test in the works), he’ll provide financial, maybe even physical and emotional support for it, but I doubt she’ll be part of the package.

    Because of her blabbing to the press, Simon is going to look like a fool if he sticks with her and I don’t think he wants to be seen as a fool.

    And I feel so very sorry for her son. 7 years old and his mother spends most of her time on vacations away from him. Poor kid.

    • Fabgrrl says:

      The boy is probably better off spending time with his nanny.

    • Yracey says:

      I think simon will just provide financially & see the child his relationships never work so marriage is definately a no no he wont settle down at 53 that would result in an early grave for him he likes the first initial excitement of a relationship but then the rot sets in this leapord aint changing its spots lets getreal!

  21. Tiffany says:

    I cannot throw shade at Simon being Simon. He has never admitted being anything but. I can throw shade at him being in a friendship with a couple and banging someone in that couple. Yeah, you just don’t. I will say this is shaping up to be my favorite scandal of the year. Sex, money, stupidity. It has it all. Empires have fallen because men think with the wrong head. Feel for the kid and child to be. Goes to show you have no control of how big of an a-hole your parents will be.

  22. BlackMamba says:

    I love this story, I can’t stop reading about it. That woman is despicable. By all accounts she use to leave her son behind all the time to go on vacation with Simon and now all we see are pap pics of her bringing him to the bus stop, toy shopping etc…It’s so obvious that she’s just trying to portray herself as a “just a good mom” instead of the calculating lolita goldigger that she has been revealed to be. SMH.

  23. Itwillrain says:

    I don’t believe the husband knew. If you read the TMZ article that details all the reasons why Lauren “assumed he must know,” they are the typical cheater reasoning. “How could he not know? I talk to Simon on the phone every day.” (Sure…and I’m sure you said all kinds of sweet nothings to Simon on the phone within earshot of your husband.). “He obviously knew…I would go travel to see Simon in London.” (And I’m sure you told him you’d be banging Simon while you were there). No, the husband didn’t know. Maybe he should’ve thought something was up, but he probably just took it on face value that she behaved the same w Simon whether he (the husband) was with them on the trip or not.

    • Cici says:

      I agree, if you look at the photos on the yacht when she is playing with Simon’s hair, the husband is looking on with a surprised look. I think the hubby was surprised by this and is leaking the story for revenge. Especially if he married her over his parent’s objections, he could be feeling like a victim now. And I wonder if she got pregnant with her first child and pressured the husband into the marriage.

  24. K says:

    I just find him to be so unattractive.

  25. aquarius64 says:

    I. just. can’t.

    “Underhanded cad?” Simon became one the moment he let his crotch wander towards his “friend’s” wife.

    The wife is a golddigging skank. Her June Cleaver act for the paps is not going to work.

    The “wronged” husband may have had a clue; look at the yacht picture with Simon and Lauren lounging and Andrew looking on surprised.

    I feel sorry for the 7-year-old and the unborn child. They are stuck in this muck.

  26. Rachel says:

    If you’re going to cheat (and y’know, don’t) at LEAST have the decency to use protection. She leaves her husband open to a wide variety of STIs. Not the least of which could kill him. That’s probably the most selfish part of the whole thing. She risks his life and health to pursue her sneaky little goals. So gross.

  27. Cazzee says:

    The NYDN is reporting that she is asking for her own reality TV show plus a house in the Cotswalds.

    This chick has a plan. 🙂

  28. Fabgrrl says:

    That “didn’t think she could get pregnant because she and her husband had trouble having a baby” excuse is total horsesh!t. That hardens back to the time when women received all the “blame” for fertility issues. It takes two. While a woman may not be able to have one man’s child, she may be able to have a different man’s child without difficulty. Some DNA just can’t mix.

  29. Chrissy says:

    I cannot believe the vitriol for this woman that no one knows about! Did she release the info about her being pregnant or did someone find out b/c her hubby put Simon Cowell on the divorce papers weeks ago? Does anyone know? Maybe she didn’t want the info out b/c of her history of miscarriages. Maybe she isn’t concerned about the possibility of miscarriage just b/c of money … maybe she truly wants another child. Who knows what was going on in her marriage. All of this is speculation and it’s terrible. Why the effort to destroy this person? I really cannot understand the focus on Simon Cowell and this woman. I could understand a one day blurb but all this focus just seems … strange.

    • bluhare says:

      There is too much information out there for the parties not to be leaking it. I think they all are.

      She wants to put Simon on the spot, get rid of the husband, and get some money. If Simon did dump her six weeks ago, she’s getting the best revenge ever. Unfortunately it’s the poor baby that will suffer.

      Husband wants to look wronged now it’s out. If anyone thinks someone worth $70 million didn’t know she was messing around, I’ve got something else to sell you.

      Simon doesn’t want to be seen as a homewrecker even though he probably wasn’t. I think everyone knew and the husband was probably fine with it until it went public and made him look like an idiot.

      • Jayna says:

        Maybe he was happy it kept her occupied so he could travel with his side pieces when traveling for work and gone long stretches of time.

      • Christin says:

        The stories that keep coming out do seem to be coming from BOTH camps plus a few people (sources) who probably want their moment of fame (or infamy).

        If it is true she was a good friend of Charlie’s ex Brooke while they were in private school, then that tells me a lot. This woman’s mother allegedly played a game of “trading up”, too.

        I personally know several women who suffered miscarriages and cannot think of a single one who dared tell anyone (other than spouse) of a later pregnancy until past the first trimester. There is a motive at play, I think, and it’s likely driven by hunger for fame and more money.

    • Ok says:

      Chrissy — I am not sure about the nasty comments and what is generating them. I think this type of topic hits close to home for a lot of people.

      But all the actual stories out there…… Hmmmm. I smell the work of a master publicity generator (aka Simon ).

      I mean wasn’t there a blind where people were guessing that a “boss” was encouraging his mentally unstable “employee” to go off her medication, in order to allow her behavior to become strange, bizarre and erratic in order to generate publicity and ratings for a show. And there were many guesses that It was Simon and Brittany.

      Man loves scandal, drama and appearing in the headlines. It adds to his bank account.

      • TG says:

        This. Comment is in reply to Cristin – to be fair about Brooke Meuller’s mother I think her husband (Brooke’s dad) was killed in a car crash or something before she took up with the wealthy man from Florida. Now not sure if she used the same ruse as her daughter and Lauren to get her riches. But I agree both Lauren and Brooke seemed to have learned gold digging from their morher’s based on their comments in support of ther daughters ways.

  30. Madriani's Girl says:

    I don’t know anything about cosmetic procedures so cut me some slack. I am puzzled. He makes no secret of liberally using botox to keep his face smooth and “youthful”. Cough. So why doesn’t he have something done about his nasty turkey neck? Even if he didn’t talk about his botox habits at all, he wouldn’t fool anyone because of that awful neck situation.

    • Tig says:

      From second hand info- necks are notoriously resistant to just about any “fix”- that is the Holy Grail of cosmetic/ derm procedures- whoever solves it is sitting on a serious pot of gold! Simon is getting treated by best there is, and still this!

    • Ok says:

      You know I never noticed his neck. I always look at his chest. It is so very not good looking.

  31. Madriani's Girl says:

    One more thing, too. Simon has made it clear all along that he wants nothing to do with having children, which is his absolutely prerogative. And I believe if this child proves to be his, he will totally do the right thing and fully support him/her financially. But if he doesn’t want kids then he should have used protection. Period. I am so over these men who act all blindsided when their side piece gets pregnant and they know they didn’t use anything, especially when they insist the piece swore she was using something herself. Gentlemen, you fall for that line and you deserve every child you help conceive.

    This crap about Simon and Andrew being “friends?” Does Simon look like he would be friends with a loser like this? Obviously, Lauren knew Simon that was in it for the sole reason to bang her! If her husband didn’t know, then he really is as dumb as he looks!

    • lisa says:

      i think people assume that simon + andrew is the main friendship because they are both male but i dont buy it. either simon was equally good friends with both or his main friend was lauren.

    • Ok says:

      Sandy — that loser has more money than probably all of us put together.

    I know ya’ll rag on CDAN A LOT but all his Simon blind items about vacationing and screwing current and past gfs in one trip and no protection being used reeeeaaally kinda make all the sense and line up with all this trash we are seeing

    Who the hell smokes anymore?

    • Jayna says:

      Tons of people. I thought smoking was over years ago, but so many in my office smoke, all young women. It seemed to come back strong again for some reason.

  36. Alexis says:

    Hm bet he kinda wishes he had just married Teri Seymour and called it a day. I mean, why not just do one lady if they are all gonna look very similar?

    I just heard them talking on the radio about her whole “affair with a teacher when she was 16” thing… and I’m kind of disgusted that people gossip about it as if she was an adult or some Lolita character. Don’t get me wrong, I think she’s a total golddigger – but statutory rape isn’t something we should find relevant to this whole ordeal. I don’t know. It kind of sickens me that whatever happened when she was 16 is being used as fuel to the public perception fire that is the way she’s being portrayed right now. I totally agree and think she’s an A+ golddigger… it’s a problem to me that people find this as important to frame who she is or reinforce their opinion of her.

    • Jayna says:

      Man, do I agree. What she did in her teens even in just dating and banging guys is silly to use as some kind of evidence about her, but to talk about her sleeping with her older, married teacher/tutor as if it was nothing and using it against her is disgusting. She was a teenager. He was an older, married authority figure. Leave her alone.

      I had a schoolmate at 16 sleep with a good-looking coach, the same age, 26, married. She wasn’t traumatized, etc., and seemed to move on fine. Still she was only 16 and teens do dumb things. She did look older and had the body of Elizabeth Taylor and dark hair. Even if not manipulated by a power figure, they are in awe of them, and that kind of stuff is bad to put as “news” about Lauren and is character assasination, trying to paint her as a ho because of something that happened to her as a teenager.

      Oddly enough, my classmate, after her divorce, years later, around 28, ran into the coach, divorced also, and they fell in love and married. Odd story.

    • LAK says:

      Clearly both of you have never met teen girls who are right little minxes.

      Not every teen, regardless of gender, that has an affair with an older person is being corrupted by said older person. And i am not saying this to condone or support the practice.

      Some teens are prudes, others are minxes and more are somewhere inbetween. Their behaviour depends on nurturing by their parents, school or their peers or a combination of all the above.

      Per the example you’ve given, teen behaviour shouldn’t be used to judge the adult, but with Lauren, clearly there is form going as far back as that teen incident.

      It makes a mockery of her own mother’s defence of her as someone who has been taken advantage of and who deserves Simon to do the right thing….what about this continuing pattern of behaviour?

      I bet the mother used the same excuses back when she was a teen as she is doing now.

      • TG says:

        I was wondering if the mother set her daughter up to have this affair with the teacher so they could get a nice payout from the school. It seems odd that no charges were ever filed and both Lauren and the teacher left the school. Of course that still doesn’t excuse the teacher’s behavior.

      • Carina says:

        An affair when you are a fully grown woman and a 16 year old having sex with an adult (it’s statutory rape no matter how minxy they are, my friend) are two very different things.

      • Anna says:

        I was making sex tapes with my boyfriend when I was 16. Whatever Lauren was doing as a teenager in no way makes it excusable for a grown man to have sex with her. We do not know what the situation was, AT ALL, and we have no way to know if this is linked to her “patterns” now. I believe this kind of personal matter when she was a legal minor (who did not put herself in the public eye at the time) should have no place in gossip stories or our frame of minds when we judge her.

      • LAK says:

        Carina, i am not denying the legal definition of a teen/older person relationship.

        Older people preying on younger people is a cliche at this point, and i do not deny that it happens, but it also happens the other way.

        Anna – You were making sex tapes at 16???!!! And proudly boast of this on a public forum???!!! Forget judging Lauren. I am judging you!!!

  38. Maria says:

    I’m not sure how I feel about the fact that gold digging is, in our culture, worse than sleeping with someone else’s wife.

    • LAK says:

      The gold digging is probably getting more comments because it seems to have been set in motion in a very cold planned way.

      It’s not often one has a front seat to such transparent gold digging.

  39. Jayna says:

    The story doesn’t make sense. They didn’t use protection because she didn’t think she could get pregnant. Having several miscarriages means you can definitely get pregnant. She just wasn’t carrying them to term.

  40. user00005 says:

    I bet he can breastfeed with those saggy tits of his. That is the silver-lining here.

  41. Mew says:

    Why does he look so much like Ciarán Hinds? It annoys the heck out of me.

  42. Jade says:

    That first picture; it’s like she’s saying “taaadaaah! 18 years!”.

  43. CC says:

    he has MOOBS!

  44. princesslizabeth says:

    Hope they both give up the ciggies. Not good for anyone concerned, especially the developing baby. 🙁

  45. Jaxx says:

    What is it with women wearing huge men’s watches? Jennifer Aniston wears a big, clunky man’s watch too, and I think it looks silly on their tiny wrists.

    Also, I’m looking at Simon’s neck in that first pic and it looks smooth as can be, no turkey in sight. What am I missing?

  46. homegrrl says:

    can you even imagine have s*x with this man? I guess I came from the land of the old rich man with the young desperate chick. I’ve had plenty of opportunities to feel grossed out and pitying at the same time. blerahyalach

  47. Naomi says:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this picture of Simon. This picture should be the default picture for all things Simon Cowell related.

    The caption could read something like:

    ‘Yeah! What are you looking at? I gotta cigarette hanging outta my nose! So what!’

    As for the rest of this mess I only feel badly for the kids. All the adults seem to have lost their minds. If the story that this woman was not using birth control because she thought she could not get pregnant because she suffered through miscarriages I really wonder about her ability to think critically. I have never been pregnant but it seems her troubles relate to carrying a pregnancy to term not getting pregnant. Also if you have had multiple miscarriages as the stories I have read suggest why would you not use birth control? Especially with someone outside of your existing marriage? Why put your body through that physically and emotionally?

    All the adults seem sketchy. I agree with her mom that children are a blessing but her mom could take a look at the situation her daughter has placed her 7 year old son as well as the unborn child. I wonder how much he has heard. School will be starting up in a few weeks. Could be a real interesting and unfortunately informative new school year for him. Hope his classmates are clueless and he is able to be a kid.

  48. Isabela says:

    I really hope she is a golddigger and gave her a little poison to Simon over the next years. He deserved!
