Yes, you read that right, folks! While this is definitely not something we would have expected from Simon Cowell, but The X Factor guru is going to be a father! And if that wasn’t bad enough, get this – Cowell knocked up the wife of one of his “good” friends! Details inside.
Simon Cowell has always been extremely vocal about the fact that he has never wanted children, even telling the media back in 2009 when asked: “God, no. I couldn’t have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I’d go nuts.” Well, it looks like Cowell is about to go nuts in the future, because the X Factor judge is going to be a daddy!
So, who is the lucky lady? Well, as it turns out, Cowell actually knocked up his friend’s wife. Yep, not kidding. According to People Magazine, Cowell has managed to knock up New York socialite Lauren Silverman, who happens to be the wife of Andrew Silverman, a real estate guru and close friend of Cowell’s. The 36-year-old mother-to-be has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband, and she plans to be with Cowell.
However, divorce has been on the couple’s mind for some time now, as a source told US Weekly: “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.”
Despite the fact the couple may have been pondering divorce for some time, that does not excuse Cowell from sleeping with his pal’s wife! We can’t help but wonder what his friend has to say about all this. When asked to comment, Cowell’s rep told People Magazine that all media inquiries are being handled by Cowell’s attorney.
