Simon Cowell is bringing another whole level of “baby mama drama!” Seems like he reportedly knocked up New York socialite Lauren Silverman who also is the wife of close friend, mogul Andrew Silverman (rumors state the married couple were contemplating divorce). In a move to set tongues wagging, Lauren is rumored to be leaping from her marriage to be with Simon.
A close friend to Simon shared with ‘MailOnline’ that Lauren has been dropping hints to friends she wants to marry the multimillionaire. In a backstabbing move, Simon has been friends with real estate mogul Andrew for several years. The ‘X-Factor’ judge had also vacationed with the married pair over the last few years.
Friends share the socialite is thrilled about the pregnancy and is reportedly around 10 weeks along. Lauren’s sister-in-law brushed off the reports of pregnancy and infidelity with Simon by stating “I have read the gossip. I have no knowledge whatsoever. I don’t know anything about it.”
Well, it looks like everyone else does, which makes it seem pretty significant to wonder if bad boy Simon does? Simon had spent time with the couple a lot. In 2011 he took ex-fiance Mezhgan Hussainy on Andrew’s yacht to vacation with the seemingly, happily married couple, and he has joined them for additional outings. The latest one happened last summer. So, naturally this makes one wonder how long the indiscretion has been going on. Friends state, the behind the scenes couple have been seeing one another for just about a year.
Of course unnamed sources close to the socialite stated, “Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while. As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close.”
This is a total burn against a friend, unless Andrew knew about it, but remaining married to the hussy while she’s skirting the bushes with his best friend doesn’t make sense. Both Simon and Lauren were, reportedly seeing one another while they shared vacations with their significant others. I am thinking those fans that were never crazy about Simon will only grow in numbers.
Interestingly, Simon appeared on ‘Chelsea Lately’ yesterday and shared nothing of pregnancy rumors with the in your face hostess. When media outlets have tried reaching Simon for a response, his U.K. agent has prepared a simple, yet powerful response, “This is a very sensitive issue and all media enquiries are being dealt with by his U.S. attorney.” We’re starting to get the feeling maybe Simon is equally surprised by the announcement.
The wealthy philanthropist has never made his feelings shy about children. He doesn’t really want them. “God, no. I couldn’t have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I’d go nuts,” he said in 2009. “You’ve got to be up at a certain time. Got to listen. When all you want to do is sit in a corner thinking.” Of course add in a few years and maybe a best friend’s wife and Simon’s tune changed somewhat in 2012 when he told ‘AOL Music’:
“I do really, really like kids, because I can talk to them and listen to them,” he said. “The problem has always been how much time you need to devote to bringing up kids and I’ve always dedicated all my life to work, and at 52, I’ve probably missed the opportunity.”
Looks like opportunity came knocking, Simon! Further interesting is Simon ended the engagement with make-up artist Hussainy in late 2011 and picked up dating Carmen Electra from December 2012 to February 2013. Sometime thereafter would have to suggest he connected with Lauren, if the socialite is truly pregnant and if it is Simon’s. We’re thinking more news will be announced over the next coming days.
